    Anyone else feel that if they had replaced WheeljaQ's CGI model with Jolt and used him instead it would have been a way to save money and to give closure to that guy we saw 3 times in ROTF.

    for example. Say they did have Jolt instead of Wheeljaq:

    Jolt would have rightly been an engineering inventor that could have been how he was able to know how to mash together Optimus and Jetfire.

    He would have been Irish

    The scientist in him would have liked the eco-friendly nature of the Volt.

    Jolt fans would have been satisfied lol

    How would you have felt if it were Jolt instead of the WheeljaQ we had.

    Nah.I'm fine with how it is now.
    Having Jolt as a scientist.. I dunno.
    I've always wanted Wheeljack in the movies,that's why he works better for me

    Yeah, I'd rather if it was Jolt instead of Que/Wheeljack. Never did like Que/Wheeljack's character, and it be nice to have some closure for a character that was mostly in the background in ROTF.

    Yeah, so Jolt was featured in the DOTM prequel comics and was killed off, but... I don't see the comics as being canon to the films.

    No need. Jolt as a character needed no closure.

    I think he certainly could've filled much the same role, but yeah, there's only so much room for blue carbots. Therefore WheeljaQ (I like that) should've been white.

    Ultimately, if Mercedes are paying for product placement they get final say on stuff like colours.

    As it was, I preferred WheeljaQ's character, and Jolt's altmode.

    Jolt wasn't a character, he was a dude who was there. Wheeljack was a character, and a far more interesting one than Jolt would ever be.

    I sort of like of the Jolt being Quejack...And his little ''side-projects'' cough be solar-power(Since his car is a electity powered and Electro-whips and stuff)and could explain why the thingy-thing as frazzing and stuff,because the sun was going down or something..I don't truely know what I'm talking 'bout...

    But Lumpimus Prime has a point....if he did replace Quejack..I didn't want to bite to bullet like a wuss....I would have like it go like this:
    Jolt:''Don't kill me...Don't shoot me....Wait.....*looks at his right...*"I can fight back!!"*Then pulls out his whip and uses it to grab the nearest con...Then puts him a choke hold.*
    Decepticon:"Get me out of this.....You...you...Scumbag!!!"
    Jolt:"Nooooo,That's not the way it works...."
    *Jolt then drops the Decepticon on to the floor,then kicks the Decepticon in the stomach then shoots him in the face*
    Jolt:"Who want's some MORE OF ME!!!!!"
    Soundwave:"Decepticons.....ATTACK THAT AUTOBOT!! But you*points at an other Decepticon*WATCH BUMBLEBEE!!!!!!
    Other Decepticon:"Yes Sir,Yes Sir."
    *Jolt and some Decepticons,Barricade,Soundwave do some weird flips in the air and shooting at stuff...Jolt then kills two or three Decepticons When Barricade and Soundwave both jump towards Jolt*
    Barricade:''You.....Are dead meat!!"
    Jolt:''What ever."
    *Barricade,Soundwave and Jolt slag it out..*
    Jolt:"I got you now...."*Jolt then shoves Soundwave,then about to shoot Soundwave...but Barricade then shoots Jolt in the face.*
    Jolt:"AHHHHHH!!"
    Barricade:''That 'Bot didn't ever had a clue what hit him."
    Soundwave:Yes.....Autobots,inferior...Decepticons....SUPERIOR.''
    Barricade:*Laughs*
    (Then Bumblebee does the Star Trek clip...Kills Soundwave..blah blah.)

    I'd rather see Jolt as Ratchet's medical student to be honest. Then have him killed by Shockwave leading to an emotional moment with Ratchet where he then goes ape shit on the cons. That could have given us another bot casualty to make the movie seem darker and some development for Ratchet.

    Don't take it out on Jolt; he never got a chance to show character.

    Besides, Jolt is Autobot Jesus. It's kind of hard to imagine him as a Scottish (English?) inventor dude. That's Quejack's job.

    This. I really liked Jolt. Loved his car and robot mode. I wish they would have used him more.

    I'm a Jolt fan, and you know what I say?...Absolutely not. If Jolt was Wheeljacl/Que, that would meanhe would have to die. I liketo think he was on that special mission with The Twins offscreen and off nation, before going AWOL against Sentinel.

    While I don't think Jolt needed to replace Wheeljack, I love the idea of Jolt having an Irish accent.

    Jolt was cool looking, even if that was all he was.... Wouldn't have minded seeing more of him.
