I don't get all the Wheelie hate, sure the character was terrible in '88,
but IDWs Spotlight made me like him a bit, and this new toy is a guaranteed hit!
Seriously, the more I see of Wheelie the more I like him, and that Springer is the same. Warbot Defender is cool, no argument, but he's expensive, and honestly, more than I really feel I need from a Springer. He's quite dark looking too, colour wise. This version of the character has the colours right, and looks really good from the waist up, I'm even coming around to liking his legs for what they are, and as far as alt modes, I'm okay with Springer just being a helicopter, for a while at least. There's a lot of Autobot cars.
Swerve looks lovely in robot too, and if I can get him for a good price, I'll take him. I'm not too bothered about the character, and might rename him. Likewise Cliffjumper. These two are maybes, but I want Springer and Wheelie.
