I'm pretty sure it was strongly implied when Arcee drags his wrecked body next to Windcharger's.
She drags Windcharger's body.

Sto's reasoning for Wheeljack's fate being ambiguous is due to his body not turning grayish like other dead characters did, as well as no season 3 mention of him dying.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

strongly implied is a matter of opinion,

I seem to recall plenty of characters to have suffered similar damage, but continued to live.

Sparkplug got mixed up with a bad crowd, and went through a downward spiral of drugs, drinking, and depression. Then due to some bad luck and poor timing, he was tossed into space, and floated through the abyss aimlessly until being intercepted by Unicron. Unicron turned him into part of Cylonus' armada. He was never to be seen again.

How sad that one internet fan called Lazerface can provide better closure then 3 seasons worth of cartoon writers.

You know, I much much MUCH prefer Wheeljack and Windcharger living. Two less deaths from that damned movie. God, when the people behind it openly admit it was a bad idea... :-x :-x :-x :-x :-x
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

My reviews of Transformers G1, one episode at a time. Stop by for a spell!

He might still be alive, but I think the most widely accepted fate of his among the fandom is that he passed away at some point.


In the 5th episode of Five faces of Darkness you see an man with grand kids who looks exactly like Sparkplug but with white hair. Right as Trypticon walks by.

Where? I just watched all the Trypticon scenes from that episode, and the only scene with civilian humans it had just a bunch of random, generic-looking people who didn't resemble Sparkplug.

dozens of actual Transformers characters turn up with little or no explanation, so that makes as much sense to me as any characters disappearing.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.
