Is he not the greatest and cutest transformer that ever lived?!
Wheelie say to not delay, can he have a scout toy today?
You meant that right?
Absolutely. I dont get all the hate for Wheelie here.
Not sure if troll or Daniel Witwickey.
It's generally for the cartoon incarnation. That voice of his, what in tarnation?
As bad and annoying as he was in Season 3, he was a thousand times worse in Headmasters!
Its supposed to appeal to kids.
Hey, Frank Welker did that voice, and nothing involving him can be all bad!!
As for the character - as I don't really watch the cartoon, I just go on his comic appearances. He was OK in Space Pirates, have quite enjoyed his time in the IDW-verse... not much of an impression made.
(oh, and I liked his original toy too).
Wheelie isn't the worst for some reason i can tolerate him. I love his design lil' orange car with a slingshot that looks cool.
But Bayformer Wheelie is surprisngsly better and more useful. even though he humped Megan Fox's leg.
Movie Wheelie was craaaaaaapy.
G1 Wheelie should be to Rodimus as Bumblebee is to Optimus -- if he could just man up that voice of his a little, and maybe still like to rhyme but not necessarily have to rhyme.
When Wheelie was marooned on Quintessa, I like to imagine him becoming a bit dark and even a little demented. That was (presumably) a lot of years alone. And he would be setting traps for Sharkticons, sneaking around all stealth-mode like, doing lots of killing.
There could be some good stories about this little nerd, if he could just be made less nerdy. Change his rhymes into fresh funky ass lyrics and have him rap that shit. Give him a Sharkticon mech suit that he built or something, and lose the Dennis the Menace/Bart Simpson slingshot already.
Wheelie appreciation, I find, is often about his potential.
After finally getting to watch all of Headmasters I don't see how. Have to give him props for his non-movie kill of a Sweep and then beating Trypticon. Granted I didn't dislike him in season 3, but I can get how the high pitched voice and his odd sentence rhyming may get on some people's nerves and occassionally with him getting in the way of bigger bots.
In Headmasters he didn't really have those problems anymore. I think he came off as being somewhat better than he was in season 3. They were able to play off of him now rather than just tossing him into a scene just because. He was paired off with Daniel, much like Bumblebee was with Spike. Unlike them however Wheelie was not usually in the way of the bigger characters now. They came off as a decent matching best buds, bringing a warmth that I thought was lacking between Bumblebee and Spike.
I don't even think KO toy makers even go near his toy. I've never seen any KO Wheelie.
As for the cartoon: He doesn't annoy me that much.
In the '86 movie he pisses me off. In the cartoon, well, I didn't find him nearly as annoying. Felt like he was toned down, oh and it helps that he didn't appear in pretty much the entire later half of the season as well.
I won't say I "appreciate" him, but he's nowhere near as bad as everyone says he is. I thought Wreck-Gar was a much more annoying character as a kid
Oddly enough, I disagree - and with that, I mean they managed to shovel the combined annoyingness on Daniel alone, leaving Wheelie little more than a brat.
I think he is GREAT in the Wheelie Spotlight comic from IDW a few years back, one of the best spotlights imo.
I didn't mind him in the 86 movie, season 3 or in Headmasters either but he wasn't one of my favorites either.
I really like his animation model though.
I wish i had found universe Wheelie.
I have the Shadow Striker repaint but it's not really Wheelie.
Scout Class Wheelie Please Hasbro.
I want a Generations Wheelie, but I want it to be a deluxe.
