Yizhi521 of TF08.net has posted another image of a new Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen figure. On top of this morning's photos of The Fallen figure we now have an image of the toy for the new Autobot Wheelie, who transforms into a small remote-controlled truck. He features a faction-switching gimmick, and appears to be a very anxious, chicken-hearted Transformer from the looks of his bio.

The Wheelie RC truck was spotted on set during filming at the Air & Space museum, and will appear in the film when released on June 26th 2009.

See the image of the card-backing by clicking here.

Hmmm interesting... Id much rather him not be a cowardly character but Hollywood liberty does what it wants, when it wants... should be interesting to see how this turns out...

Is it just me, or did we just find the rumored "R/C car" robot from ROTF?

*edit* Dur, just saw the R/C car comment on his card. As an R/C car guy, though,I think the aesthetic is very good. He looks a good bit like a vintage 80's monster truck. Hmmmm...I smell a crossover project between my hobbies in the near future.

To refresh everyone's memory:

The call sheet referred to a robot named "Wheels" but I always knew he would end up as Wheelie - it only makes sense, and it's a perfect choice given the alt mode.

Just wish he wasn't so freakin' ugly.

So the twins and Wheelie all look like Johnny 5? Lame. At least the first batch of Autobots all fit the "movie" design but looked unique from one another.

Johnny 5, R.O.B. and Wall-E gangraped an RC monster truck. This figure was the result.

Jeez... Endurance 9? The 'cons will never get rid of him...

Bad luck for them, he looks kinda... completely weak and useless. Like Energon Perceptor.

Go get'em, 'cons! Don't forget Daniel, he's the fleshbag with the remote!

I hope he lasts in robot mode about as much as Bonecrusher did, what an ugly face.

So the wheel feet list continues:
1. sideswipe
2.Constructicon
3.Blue motorcycle thing
4.Wheelie
5.Megatron might be able to roll around on his treads
6.Let's not forget bonecrusher

Yes... agreed. Wall-E was the first thing I saw when I looked at this pathetic looking head. Okay, sorry. I shouldn't call it pathetic. I should keep an open mind.

Totally a bastard child. Just look at those teeth. I know alot of people want to see him get stepped on or something, but look at that endurance. He'll probably survive.

The blue and the wheels makes me think that could have been Movie Roller.

Not bad.

As long as he stops smegging rhyming, I'm cool with it. Besides, the fun might come from beating him to death rather than seeing him dead, no?

He's been running from a bad rep. for 20 years solid. I should hope to Primus the little bugger has high endurance.
This is one figure that I am purposely NOT going to tell my kids about. I can tell already exactly what's going to happen. My oldest son will run up to me with one in his hand while we are at WM or Target and say "Oh, my god, Dad You are not ging to believe it!!!" He'll hold up the package and follow up with "THEY TOTALLY WENT THERE!!" Meanwhile his little brother will just be shaking his head and repeatedly asking "WHY??"
I hate having to explain stuff like this to children. It's worse than the "birds & the bees" lecture. :P

I'll be honest, this is probably one of the most interesting re-imaginings of a character I have seen yet, and I like it.
I was not too sure about his character and how he was going to be in the movie, but this sounds like a good thing to me.

I'll buy this and Devastator, and that will probably be it since I can't afford to spend nearly as much on toys as I used to, mainly due to Wal-Mart's recent price gouge making Target much cheaper for the toys.. I work at Target too, and I get a discount...
*finally puts two and two together*
I'm buying my stuff at work now..

lol, it was sarcasm

I was also talking about Bay's use of it, like that guys list up there ^

I know its been done before though. It just ruins toy poseability sometimes on certain figs

I was going to say Autobot Wall-E, but I can see now that he does indeed look more like Johnny 5.
I like the look of this one, I'll probably buy it when it comes out.
Looks a lot nicer than The Fallen...

O.k. now that picture on top of the already unsettling aforementioned 3-way gang rape of the RC Truck has just placed a disturbing pall over the rest of my afternoon. There's no way in hell I will be able to walk into the toy aisle of any of the local stores and look at this figure without totally losing it. I'm going to be seriously annoyed if I get 86'ed from a Wal-Mart beacuse of what this thread has done to my already damaged psyche. 8-}

I really hope there is a scene where this guy is crashing to earch, everone else leaving big craters and him bouncing off a windshield.

As far as the toy, so far I am fairly impressed with Jar-Jar-Wheelie. Hopefully they make a Frenzy and Ravage about the same size.

Its sort of cute in that Wall-e way. What do you bet that Wheelie ends up as the hero of the film, overcoming his fears to defeat the all and powerful? Its got Hollywood all over it.

Well, my reality is officially F'ed up for the day. Time to lock myself in my room and gouge my eyes out. The bot-on-RC Car 4-way I could handle but...Jar-Jar??
