Holy crap! The world will now end. Wheelie gets a spotlight.



I will be in the corner, sobbing over such a nightmare.

Looks like Wheelie is going to be more of a survivalist like his G1 techspec painted him as.

Haha! If this is true, then kudos to mr. Ryall for having the balls to actually do this! I'm looking forward to seeing how this will actually be executed, with an idea this bizarre, he's got to be on to something...

Wheelie is the worst possible choice for a spotlight, so you KNOW it's going to be good! 8)

My previously stated opinions of Wheelie:
zodconvoy wrote:I never understand the general hatred for Wheelie. I like him! As a concept anyway. Think about it...

He's the only person he knows living in the wilds of Quinntessa, dodging Sharkticons and Allicons all day but clearly unafraid. After all, the first thing he does is look for a opening to attack Grimlock and take over the Dinobot "pack". That's like a 10 year old picking a fight with MechaGodzilla. By his actions, he is accepted by the most xenophobic group of Autobots and even gets them to follow him! Before that? Who knows where he even came from? I always figured he was a Junkion kid or at least TV taught like them...

He's not the lame retarded kid they depicted in Season 3.

He's Mowgli from the Jungle Book!


Here's Counter Punch backing me up:

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.


Wheelie will kick any bodies ass and they won't even see it coming.

CAN YOU DIG IT!

I didn't think there could be any IDW TF title worse than Beast Wars: The Ascending. Looks like I was wrong.

Then again, I thought the same about Ramjet. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised again.

Wheelie! Yes! I'm sick of this "Wheelie SUX!" crap. I so want to love this character. Hid ryming will be more taunting to his enemies than annoying to us. Maybe they can do something with his alt mode, 'cause that is really what sucks most about him.

Wheelie!

The character was done a great injustice in the movie, show, and figure.

May Wheelie finally get his due - and stop talking in rhyme.

now i know alot of people say wheelie but when you see the robot stand there it looks like now please dont discourge me but it looks like ultra maguns, because wheelie has a slingshot as a weapons not guns and i think its a solider onthe last page not a robot.

Wheelie!

Bold move, but a good one IMHO. I loved the G1 kids book about him: "Wheelie, Wild Boy of Quintessa."

If you haven't seen it, check it out. It focuses on the survivalist part of his bio. It is his story of crashing on Quintessa with his family. Only Wheelie survived.

Chuck Norris is Wheelie's Headmaster.

i was too afraid to say wheelie, but someone's already done the hard part for us.

Well we knew it was only a matter of time, since he had a cameo in Spotlight Prime, Wonder if his issue will tie directly into that appearance.

I'm looking forward to it, hoping that Roche gets a go with the art, as he did some awesome work with Spotlight: Kup, I fully expect this to be a dark and sombre Spotlight like Kup.
