    I was thinking about how in the episode description in Loose Cannons it says that the Autobot which is Wheeljack by the way makes Otpimus a little uneasy.Add to the fact that Wheeljack has a possible grudge against Dreadwing and the fact that he could go crazy with trying to get Dreadwing whcih could cause destruction and the possible death of Bulkhead. I may be wrong but still I wonder if Bulkhead's death in the hands of Dreadwing or by Jackie's own hands may make him into someone like Depthcharge.

    What are your thoughts?

    Well there will be a 14 episode story-arc for Dreadwing so anything's possible.

    Right. So I wouldn't be suprised that if Dreadwing does kill Bulkhead,Wheeljack could go on a revenge spree and try to kill him while Dreadwing may have some remorse going on. Soem can center on the Autobots trying to stop Wheeljack from going insane with vengence like Arcee could try to stop him because she knows what it's like to feel that way.

    Just some ideas.

    That's not a bad theory. I could see it happening.

    No.

    Depthcharge had a clear motive and basis for his character setting up his story right from his very debut.

    Wheeljack... we know nothing about except he's a drifter. He has no clear motives, no clear story. Anything that is revealed later isn't going to seem nearly as established as Depthcharge was, and is likely going to come off as retconnning him a personality, rather than expanding on an existing one.

    Does the word character development comes to mind?

    The thing is that we need more episodes to REALLY know who Wheeljack is. We can't automaticlly say that he stinks just by one episode alone because that's only his first appearence in the show so far. We just need more episode to really flesh out his character.

    Not every character needs to have their motives be very clear the firt time around. There are times when the greatest of characters need a lot more episodes to really flesh them out. I mean we didn't know there was much more to BW Dinobot when he first appeared until we got into a lot of episodes to do so.

    I don't think he will be Detph Charge-ish, we already had revenge storyline with Arcee, and going by
    Seasprays death in the trailer he didn't seem particularly affected like Depth Charge was about it, it made him pissed off enough to chase him to kill him, but certainly wasn't Depth Charge level of insanity

    I'm not talking about developement. People are comparing Wheeljack to Depthcharge. So am I.

    But first impressions are everything. Even if he turns out to be the greatest character in teh show and everyone loves him tehre's still goign to be that little unsightly issue with his first episode portraying him as as utterly boring and making it all seem like an elaborate retcon. Which wouldn't be bad, it just wouldn't be good.

    Plus it doesn't help that his first appearance portrayed him as a stereotypical "cool" guy with swords even though the swords don't reflect his demeanor.

    We knew far more about Dinobot in his first appearance than Wheeljack. We knew he was hostile, but had a sense of honour. We knew he had ambition, but could be humble. We don't know anything about Wheeljack except that everyone really likes him for no reason.

    Why would Dreadwing need to kill another Autobot, Bulkhead, to bring about these events? It shouldn't matter, as
    Seaspray's
    is what brought Wheeljack here in the first place. Be it vengeance or justice, Wheeljack is looking to get some.
