    after some responces made in a thread i did about makeshift's appearence, i realized one of the persons reponces may have been true and that dead end may actually be intended to be make shift. he was in his wheeljack appearence when he was blown up, explianing his appearence. he is also described as lurking in the shadows, which makeshift is shown to like as well.
    and the dark energon incident that caused his radiation, could also be akin to saaaaay, being in the center of a massive explosion.

    thoughts?

    Thats possible. But if he is makeshift then why name him Deadend?

    I think I'm the only one against this idea.

    I was thinking that Dead End would be a perfect Makeshift stand in. As for the name change, the explosion might have ended his "imitation" ability. Add that with the new personality, he could have decided to change his name to Dead End.

    No offence, but seriously? You want to bring a useless character that was only good for one episode, and wasn't even very interesting? Makeshift was nothing but a plot device that was good enough to be used only once. I find him coming back from the dead as Dead End completely weird and simply not suitable. We've got enough Decepticons running around as duplicates (yes, Dreadwing and Eradicons, I'm looking at you).

    Besides. According to Word of God: "Once we kill a character, we kill a character."

    Moving on please.

    To be fair, it was never explicitly stated that Makeshift actually DIED in the grenade explosion. Yes, he was strapped to the grenade at point-blank range, but if Megatron can survive a Space Bridge implosion...

    Plus, who DOESN'T want an Evil Wheeljack running around? I'd love to see a fight between Wheeljack and an insane copy of himself.

    Another evil knockoff to add to the list? Um, I think only one is good enough. I've had enough of them sadly. I want something else. There's enough Decepticons roaming around already. I want to see a new Autobot. Besides, Wheeljack is arch rival to Dreadwing, in case you've forgotten.

    EDIT: Oh, an evil Wheeljack has happened before in the past. Try watching Armada.

    But, if we want another evil knockoff, why not have a whole episode with Wheeljack and Dead End fighting through the whole thing. Guess who comes out the winner? Autobots will prevail and Dead End is officially... dead. :D

    I wouldn't hate this idea, but I'd rather not see it occur

    Megatron only survived because he was doped up to the eyeballs on Dark Energon, and even then it damn near killed him. Makeshift had no Dark Energon in his system, and is a much less durable robot than the leader of the Decepticons. I think it's safe to say he's gone.

    I'm kind of confused as to who you are referring to as the "evil knock off". Are you talking about Dreadwing? Personally, I think it can be argued that Skyquake was what you consider an "Evil Knock off" because all he really did in the long run was provide a reason to bring in the MUCH more important Dreadwing, plus what was originally Skyquake's Voyager toy clearly showed off a sword in the unpainted prototype pictures, which Skyquake never used but Dreadwing does, implying Dreadwing was the original intended use of the mold all along and his "spark brother" was just a way to make use of the model before Season 2.

    As for Armada Wheeljack, I find him the most boring of all those named Wheeljack as the only thing he had going for him was "blah blah blah Hot Shot left me to die, so now I'm evil and I'm gonna get revenge blah blah blah", and he'd lost even that by the end of the series.

    Now, if Prime Makeshift ends up becoming Dead End, that would negate his cheap and useless death back in S1, explain why he's a Wheeljack retool with a new head (because he was Wheeljack when the 'nade went off), and give him an actual motive (like say, trying to prove he's superior to the original Wheeljack or something).

    True.

    Unless his remains were still around and Knock Out decided to play Dr. Frankenstien with them and some extra Vehicon parts. Which I could totally see him do. It's not like having the dead brought back to life hasn't happened yet or anything, although Knock Out would need to work around the fact only Dark Energon seems to do that.

    By that logic, then Hot Shot is Bumblebee from the future.
