Looks like Wheelie's retuning to his tech spec bio roots.

I hope this is 'storybook badass Wheelie' as opposed to 'annoying motherslagger Wheelie.'

I never really minded Wheelie. I loved him as a kid and still like him although he's not my favorite. Love the stranded castaway feel and hope it's not like gilligans island. I think they can make Wheelie a really interesting cool character. :D

Oh, goodie...we get to bust a news crew person for a blatant typo, though I wouldn't have thought to go look if it weren't for Original Sin's post.

2006, though, i_amtrunks? That'd be 2 years ago, meaning it'd have been out for some time now.
#-o :APPLAUSE:

Don't mind me, though, i_amtrunks, I'm just calling you out on an honest mistake.

It could be just me, but I absolutely love that goofy smile in the insert panel of the first page =D

when's this hitting shelves anyways? It'll mean I have to plan a trip to the local comic book store on that day, everything IDW has put out has sold out before I pop by -.-

I can't imagine what you folks mean by the 2006 comment. It clearly says 2008....*whistles*ignoremyabilitytomodifynews*whistles*

I have always loved Wheelie and I've never understood the fandom's obsession with hating the poor kid. All you have to do is watch Transformers Headmasters to see how awesome Wheelie can be. Even Daniel isn't that bad.

This art reminds me of that one storybook. Can someone dig up at least the cover to that book? (can't remember the name of it.)

Now that's just plain old fashioned crazy-talk right there.

The nice men in white coats will be along soon to take you for a little drive in their padded van. :P

Interesting =)

This pretty much could perhaps change my view on Wheelie.
Should prove a few of those Wheelie-haters wrong.

Oh, and btw. Tekka, your sig is scary :P (it just makes me shiver, and scroll fast by it) ^^ (I mean no offense with that comment, it's meant humourously)

I'm sorry it scares you. =( Though I doubt any of my others will make you feel any better.

As for my feelings on Wheelie, he is not worth hating, but he has not done anything to make me like him either.

You hadn't done it at the time I called him on it, and therefore it was fair game at the time.

I don't really get it either. I personally like Wheelie. Of course, he had absolutely nothing to do with buying Collection 20. Got that because Kup's my favorite figure and I wanted a complete Targetmaster version of that one. The fact that Wheelie is a part of Collection 20, though: fringe benefit, IMO.

I can understand one reason for the hated: the combination of a high-pitched, nails-on-a-chalkboard voice and constant rhyming would grate my nerves too. Never had the toy (completely missed G1) so I don't know anything about it. I did watch enough of the third season to note that he didn't really appear in that many episodes, and to be honest, his rhyming wasn't nearly as annoying as the singing troupe in "Carnage in C Minor."

My personal feelings on Wheelie are neutral; I don't hate the character, but I'm not a fan either. I will be picking this Spotlight up just to see what they do with him (and the appearance of Reflector).
