    To me, characters like Wheelie are the very essence of the "Spotlight" series. Prime and Grimlock have the spotlight on them 24/7 :p

    I, for one, am LOVING this. I think Wheelie has became the fanboy scapegoat of many, while I've always thought that he's had very redeeming (and dare I say "cool"? YEP) qualities.

    The album image :) lol) and the comments from Furman describing the story and Klaus' enthusiasm this project don't exactly prove my previous statements, but they certainly don't undermine em either.

    Props to IDW, yet again :thumb

    Hrm.. it would be interesting to see them explain the rhyming couplets like they say they will. I'll pick this up with earnest.

    Good to see you're going into this with an open mind. :rolleyes: 

    IDW's take on TF's just gets better and I think this could be interesting.

    I'm waiting for Spotlight: Humans. I particularly want a Spotlight issue about 'O'. :) 

    Wheelie has a pretty interesting toy bio. I'd rather that be expanded on than anything to do with the awful animated version of him.

    I find it ironic that the post you quoted directly followed mine, proving my point. Buuuuuuttt . . . everyone's entitled to their opinion . . .

    He couldn't be much worse than the ones running right now anyways.

    I might would vote for Wheelie :)

    Sure, but Spotlight: Sky Lynx better come before that. ;) 

    Oh, and speaking of Sky Lynx, your sig kicks ass.

    Well, that storybook that had (one of) Wheelie's backstories had him wearing Sharkticon teeth
    around his neck.

    If that ain't hard, I don't know what is ;)

    I've got that storybook. Wheelie as the jungle boy of Quintessa. His space ship crashed landed on Quintessa, and he had to survive on his own after his parents(?) died from the crash. Then later meets up with HotRod and his crew, and saves them from the Quintessons. Wheelie takes HotRod to the crashed spaceship, and after repairing it, they leave with Wheelie. The art was really good in it. And I don't think Wheelie rhymed when he talked in it.
