I'm glad to see Wheeljack again but I still think he should have been somebody else. Although Prime Wheeljack is not G1 Wheeljack just like Prime Arcee isn't G1 Arcee, at least Arcee in both incarnations was a fighter in the front lines. That said, I think Wheeljack should have been cast as a weaponer/tinkerer of sorts; upgrading the Autobots' weapons systems and could have been Ratchet's long lost friend instead of Bulkhead. An episode could end with the kids stumbling upon a previously unknown cavern in Autobot HQ which would reveal... fossilized dinosaur bones! Now that's an homage to G1 I would like to see!

Now what would be fun would be to see the brothers Sideswipe and Sunstreaker and they could be cast as twins instead of just siblings. They could be Bulkhead's long lost friends. :BOT:

Well, Wheeljack could still be mechanically inclined, just hasn't had need to act show it yet. May be the Wrecker's in-house engineer.

Everyone seems to be assuming that Wheeljack is going to build the Dinobots. THe Dinobots are already built. Shockwave did it (see Fall of Cybertron). They are likely crashed and disabled on Earth somewhere and Ratchet will fix them up and revive them...or they haven't landed on Earth yet. WHo knows...but Wheeljack isn't going to build them.

Speaking of Shockwave, think he'll show up in this show at some point?

Anyway, Tony Todd's Dreadwing voice sounds eerily similar to his ROTF The Fallen voice.

It's funny that you assume that the writers give a thought about this stupid aligned continuity idea. Because at most they care about Exodus and Exiles, but WFC and FOC are completely different.

Agree 100%. We're into season 2 now - we need to start expanding the Autobot roster. You can only do so much with 5 characters.

My money is that the explosion we saw at the end of the clip is Wheeljack and I'm also betting he takes Dreadwing with him.

The Hub has uploaded a second extended preview clip of this week's all new episode of Transformers Prime "Loose Cannons". Wheeljack makes his return, and Dreadwing makes his debut.
Check out the embedded video below.

A legendary Autobot returns to Earth in pursuit of a new Decepticon, but Optimus finds the rogue Bot's operating style to be incompatible with his own. All new, Saturdays at 8:30pm ET / 5:30pm PT only on The Hub.

So it is the "Jackhammer" instead of the "Star Hammer".

Also, ZOMG, you killed Seaspray, you dastard! :P

It's entirely plausible that Cybertron could have had oceans. The Quintesson world had oceans and cybernetic aquatic life so why not Cybertron?

It does suck that they killed off the chance of bringing Seaspray to the show but I suppose that if the Autobots want some water based support personnel, they can always have Broadside make an appearance.

Assuming Wheeljack isn't just ignorant of/lying about the reason they wound up back on earth and it is played off as coincidence...

I choose to believe all these cybetronians and cybertronian relics end up on earth because Unicron gives off a sort of resonance that acts like a magnet for free-drifting cybertronian technology and calls to the subconscious of living cybertronians.

No evidence Seaspray was a wrecker.

What is up with Prime and killing off random minibots. Tailgate, Cliffjumper and now Seaspray... this is too much. I mean at this rate Pipes or Outback will be killed off screen in a few episodes soon. That is my guess. If they kill Warpath, I quit.

While I do agree with you, consider this as well. Would their deaths make as large an impact on us if they were just some random unnamed or newly-named character instead of one wit ha well known name? Would we feel for them as much if they were just nameless nobodies or noobs instead of recognizably-named characters?
