At first I was like:

"YES! Wheeljack in G1 colors! YAY!"

But now... Seeing him charging into a laser war-zone with humongous swords of death and destruction, I'm guessing that he dies at the end of the episode.

And his ears don't flash when he talks! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! :sad:

Looks like there's a possibility that the Turncoat scenario I proposed before for Wheeljacks appearance may happen. Also looks like this version of him is channeling the Spirit of IDW's Drift character. It's pretty bad-ass (albeit somewhat insane) bringing swords to a gun fight, but even more bad-ass when you actually win and I'm getting the funny feeling that even if he doesn't win, a lot of bots will go down before he's done.

Yeah, I'm guess he "sacrifices" himself at the end of the episode too unforunately. I don't see the cast getting any bigger than it already is..

Swords, Huh?

"Never do what your enemy expects you to" he says.

For all those people who expect Wheeljack to build Dinobots: Anticipate anything. Expect nothing.

If they want him to be a one-time only character, then they'll have to kill him in this episode (Though I hope they don't) since they can't leave the planet.

Let's really hope that he'll be in main cast for a while.

So he goes from geek to Drift wanna-be? I'm starting to like Prime!

If they pull another "Hi-and-Die" like they did with Skyquake, I will be dissapointed.

Just a quick reminder for everyone to tune into the Hub this evening for the latest episode of Transformers Prime featuring Wheeljack! In this episode entitled "Con Job" Bulkhead eagerly awaits the arrival of this old friend Wheeljack, but things don't go quite as planned. The episode will air shortly at 6:30 Eastern/ 3:30 Pacific.

Here's the promo to get you fired up!

With a title like 'Con Job' and the introduction of a new Autobot to the Transformers PRIME cast, you don't want to miss tonight's epidsode.

"Season 1, Episode 8
Episode Synopsis: Bulkhead awaits a visit from his buddy Wheeljack, but his arrival does not go as planned."




Swords and Wheeljack. Watch to see if the PRIME version of Wheeljack has more Drift in him, as the video somewhat implies, or if he shows us he's the more classic 'jack eccentric inventor, with a love for some cool blades he made.

Be sure to check it out tonight at 6:30Eastern/3:30Pacific on the Hub.

Wheeljack's personality fits more of Sideswipe.


They should have made Sideswipe instead of Wheeljack.


Wheeljack is the mad scientist NOT an accomplished warrior.


And WHY they made Starscream a b****ch!!!


At least in Animated, Starscream was a force to be reckoned with.

THIS! All of this! Especially the Starscream thing. I loved Animated Starscream, but this...is wrong.

Just saw it.

So much for Wheeljack being a permanent character.

At lest it had clones.
