    Whatever happened to them in the movie and after the movie in season 3? cause we dont see them nor mentioned and i am more surprised that Spike doesn't mentions his dad at all nor he mentions his good pal Chip. What i think i dont know if its true seeing Chip in a wheelchair in season 1 and 2 and having season 3 in a darker tone and seing how season 3 was they were always flying around and they were barely on Earth so him on a wheelchair wouldnt of been useful. That's what i think.

    What do you people think?

    Officially/canon wise theres no answer.

    Personally I like to think they were killed when the Autobot HQ was destroyed by Trypticon in "5 faces of darkness".

    Haha damn that's cold. I'm sure if Chip wanted, the Autobots could've built him some exoskeleton legs like they did for Jessica Morgan. Fact is though, Chip and Spike had a falling out in like 1995 when Chip professed his love for Carly right before their wedding. That wasn't so bad, but then he tore up the only floppy disk containing their wedding pictures. That was the last straw for Spike and he renounced their friendship.

    Sparkplug lost an arm in an oil rig accident one night. He and the company settled for $5 million, and he retired. Before moving to Florida, he spent some of his time doing consulting for BP.

    Wheeljack built a new powered wheelchair for Chip around 1998, and he can currently be found in a mile-deep crater on the moon.

    Sparkplug - well, let's just say he mouthed off to Grimlock one too many times.

    I always figured Sparkplug had a heart attack for some reason. Even as a kid.

    I never liked Chip, so I always liked to assume that he got stepped on.

    They may have still very well been involved in the lives of the Transformers. Just because the cannon is silent on the issue doesn't necessitate that something happened to them, such as death. Their story during the movie and season three simply isn't told.

    Sparkplug did have a heart attack (but survived) in the old Marvel comic, so there's proof that he was "at-risk."

    Sparkplug? No guess. Chip was last seen in Scramble City helping to build Metroplex. Anyway, I hope both survived G1 at least until the end of Rebirth. Too bad neither one appeared in Headmasters. It would have been interesting to see Sparkplug chatting with someone like Kup. Both telling war stories. :D

    i think there's a helluva lot of unexplored material in that gap you speak of. Dude....They need to give Transformers the anime love they give to friggin GI Joe. Come on man. A hour and a half of Resolute style TF tho. In that period you speak of. Man. They can fix shit, like how Prowl is in HM if they wanted to. But DW kinda did that to be honest. The launch and all that. And Prowl an Ironhide were classic in those, like you could just tell they were about to die together (in the movie). Classic.

    Spikes dad died in that Shuttle launch but he was alive but they didnt explain it

    I think Sparky had a heart attack from not livin right, or maybe his heart was just crushed. I want to know where his wife is or was. Was she dead? Or just a deadbeat mom. Thats what I belive probably true. An Spike was just lucky enough to be with them big awesome robots as his family. Basically, his knees gave out , thats why u see him sippin tea with his wife in HM, bein in the belly of Unicron will do that to ya

    Maybe Chip and Sparkplug got married and moved to another planet with a pool and a bar.

    I can't find a link right now, but I seem to remember in the original script for TFTM, Sparkplug was killed by the Insecticons. Sorry guys.

    Wasnt it mentioned in one of the Japanese continuity fictions that Chip was alive and well, and had helped design the exo-suits?

    In the Binaltech stories he literally becomes Prowl, thus explaining Prowl's presence in Headmasters after his death in TF:TM.

    Frome the Binaltech story:
