    What if WheelJack died instead of Bulkhead? Not saying Bulkhead dies. I personally would like this because Bulkhead is one of my favorite characters...though a lot of people dislike him? I don't get it. Bulkhead helps balance out the show with his crazy, stupid, mind. The lugnut makes me laugh sometimes IDK. But I like him. WheelJack bores me. He doesn't do anything cool and he is predictable.

    It would piss me off. Ignoring that I like Wheeljack, they already set up for a Bulkhead death in Toxicity. Killing Wheeljack instead would make that pointless. Plus, why kill the only new Autobot we've gotten?

    I'd be pissed off. Killing off Wheeljack would be just like Breakdown's death...

    That's a very bad idea. Wheeljack has only appeared in three episode so far so to kill him off is a big mistake. Worse then Breakdown.

    I mean having Bulkhead die will bring a ton of development for him hopefully making him be more open to the others.

    WJ suddenly dying at this point would just prove the writers are scared to make any lasting change to Team Prime's lineup whatsoever.

    Well if that happened then I'd probably do something like this:

    Don't get me wrong I like Bulkhead but if his death means that we get more Wheeljack, Miko getting a character change, and a Brand new Autobot to replace Bulkhead, I'd say his death is worth it.

    I'd be pissed but I could see the writers doing that I mean we didn't see Breakdowns death coming. They all want us to think Bulkheads going to die but what a twist it would be if it was Wheeljack. Trying to defend Bulkgheads honor and Bulkhead wakes up from his coma only to find out WHeeljack is dead.
    I like Wheeljack but I just don't see them killing off a chracters as big, major, and regular as Bulkhead.

    If killing Wheeljack would take out Miko as a result, then I'm more than fine to see it happen.

    Idk... TF animators killed off a major good guy in Transformers Animated and that wasn't even supposed to be the series finale. So why would killing off Bulkhead in Transformers: Prime be any different?

    Wheeljack's not that interesting.

    If Dreadwing died or Shockwave did, I'd quit watching forever.

    If they offed him, i'd hire someone to do a hit on the studio headquarters or whoever wrote that up.





    not that i believe in killing, though.

    Probably because Prowl's death was substantial and important in context? He apparently was going to eventually sacrifice himself anyway according to the S4 concept info from the Almanacs but manage to come back at some points like a Jedi spirit ala Obi-Wan IIRC. There were also a lot more Autobots still alive at that point who could fill in for Prowl, as I also think Jazz was supposed to do by being part of the Earth Autobot team full time.

    Bulkhead...he's essentially the only Autobot of the five core Autobots that they can kill off. Optimus and BB are essentially guaranteed immortality due to how "well" Hasbro says they sell toys, Arcee is the token female who needs to be angsty and "YOU KILLED MY PARTNERS" all the time (also being an internet white knight magnet anytime this is pointed out), and Ratchet is the best Autobot because he has a personality that's both understandable and not completely boring. Plus, with the way the show has handled death (anybody who has died outside of Cliffjumper has essentially be completely forgotten about by both the Autobots and Decepticons by the next episode, including Airachnid who might as well be dead for all she's contributing at this point), the Autobots would just replace Bulkhead with Wheeljack, and the only difference then would be the ex-Wrecker of the team is now smaller, turns into a fast car, and has a spaceship.

    I agree with MTME. I could see this happening and this scenario could result in some character development (at least for Bulkhead) and more tension between the factions in future episodes.

    But I also hate this scenario. I mean, almost every new Transformer not introduced at the beginning (except Cliffjumper) has been killed or disappeared from the show. If Wheeljack were to die, it would be as if they had ran out of ideas for the character or they don't know where to go with him. A total cop-out, if you can call it that.

    Well if Bulkhead dies, will WheelJack replace him in the theme song? Cause that would be weird....
