I was just going to come on here and like and be the annoying person to say "Wheelie!"..... but I guess there is a consensus here. Hmmm. Who is the lucky artist that is taking this challenge?

While Ultra Magnus is in one panel, it is clearly Wheelie on the splash page with the title "Survival Run" adding extra emphasis to it being the Wild Boy of Quintessa.

oh ok thanks nowi understand

Ya'll are haters.

Wheelie busts rhymes, lives in the Cybertron Ghetto, picks fights with Dinosaurs, and lives life wearing safety-orange.

He is in effect, daring people to shoot at him.

Wheelie is all like, "Camouflage? F' that. Let them suckas see my stylin', profiln' ass. I'll bust a rock upside their head. F' with Wheelie and you get dead."

It's got my attention. IDW has done some very interesting things with their treatment of these characters; let's see how this one plays out. If you think about it, Wheelie has plenty of cool bits to his story that could really make for a swell read. I'm rather intrigued, to be quite honest.

Let's get this straight here about Wheelie.

When Galvatron attacks, what do most Transformers do?

They run. They run away like little girls.

What does Wheelie do when Galvatron attacks him in "The Five Faces of Darkness"?

He shoots Galvatron in the face.

That, my friends is harsh.

F' with Wheelie, get shot in the face Dick Cheney style.


He didn't shoot Galvatron in the face, he shot a Sweep in the face.

As long as he's not the rhyming, squawky sped-up tape voiced annoyance he was in the original series, I'll be fine, if this does turn out to be a Wheelie Spotlight. Never saw enough of the post 1986 movie series to care for him one way or another.

He said two more characters from the (1986) movie would be getting spotlights (Ultra Magnus, Kup and Hot Rod already out). Spotlight: Galvatron came out not long after that and they showed Prime listening to a call from Wheelie in the Optimus Spotlight on page 1.

Anyone with basic brain functions should not be one bit surprised by this announcement.


You forgot to mention Ultra Magnus and Arcee, both of whom have had Spotlights as well. I'd love to see a Springer Spotlight, quite frankly. He was always the coolest character from the movie, tied with Kup.

personally i dont mind wheelie if he doesnt rhyime like he did in the seires and the movie as long they make his persoanlity differnt from his animation counterpart it fine by me think of this it could be worse spotlight could have been made with the character perceptor, or just lazorbeak alone fighting everyone.

i would like to see a soundwave spotlight i havnt been fowling spotlight issues ti much just bying tpb mostly blaster had one it be fair that soundwave gets one, or one of the transformer combiners, transformer city ( could be bad idea but intersting to see who they fight ), megatron

Well, when you do not like either character, there are no good excuses for their stupidity! :grin:

I seem to recall a Wheelie Spotlight being hinted at previously, and my stance remains the same: I'm totally and completely cool with it, on one condition: He dies at the conclusion.

Or, give us his backstory and end the issue with him alone on Quintessa, crying like a little bitch.

No, seriously though, this actually has potential. As noted earlier in this thread, Wheelie's bio information actually makes him pretty cool: stranded survivalist on an alien world.

All I ask of IDW is to do one of two things:
1- Kill Wheelie.
or
2- Make him a survivalist loner badass and not some whiny rhyming bitch.

Character, character, character. That's the key, kids.

Well, if you think about how different IDW versions of characters are when compared to what we've seen before, I'm looking forward to a Wheelie Spotlight.

Think about Megatron. G1 Megatron was a shmuck that made lots of wild plans, but had no follow through. Which is just like most of the villians of the `80s, to be honest, so its not really his fault.

But IDW Megatron is a hardcore badass that almost killed Prime in their very first meeting on Earth.

IDW's take on G1 characters is so new and fresh that you really don't know what to expect. Which is a good thing. :)

I appended my post to add Ultra Magnus. Probably at the same time you were posting to say I didn't. No biggie.

Arcee's Spotlight isn't out yet and as far as Furman was concerned (at the time of said announcement), Fembots were not part of the IDW universe. The Megatron: Origin, which contradicted that, was produced after his statement was out and he had nothing to do with that series. Fembots in the IDW-verse are the fault of either/both Eric Holmes (story) or/and Alex Milne (art).


Sorry, it took me a day to get back to this. Yeah, I included Arcee's just based on the announcement. I thought about appending it to say something about Arcee's being forthcoming, but then I'm sort of lazy about it to. Or apathetic, whichever.

I do remember Furman later on saying that he was working on a way to include Fembots in the continuity, which probably has something to do with Jhiaxus' experiments. I don't think any plot points go on in the IDW-verse without Furman's approval, even if it is written by someone else, which means that the Arcee story has to be something completely removed from the continuity, like Kup's, or Furman is in on it. Furman promised Kup is coming into play later on, and he's already hinted that Arcee's spotlight is going to affect the continuity, which means that he's now on board for female Transformers.
