    Everytime I look at wheelie I feel he should have been scout sized. He would fit right in. Anyone else think that?

    Maybe not that particular mold, but I'm hoping that's what Windcharger's remold is.

    Hmmm don't know, I love Legends Wheelie as he is :)  I don't care much for the scale but isn't he supposed to be tiny anyway?

    edit, I thought you were talking about the movie one. Sorry :(

    Its not so much the scale. I wish he had just a little more articulation. I want to sit him on MP grimlock but the legs dont allow for it.

    I love the Legends Wheelie, infact I am probably one of the few who was disapointed that Windcharger was a Scout cause I would love all the mini-bots to have been done in Legends size. I don't know why, but there was something about those little buggers as a kid that I just loved, and I think the Universe minibots captured it pretty damn well. Legends Wheelie is right up there with Cosmos as my favorite little guys.

    Nope, I was disappointed too. But for the opposite reason.... I wanted him to be a deluxe, to fit with the other car bots. Just more proof that Hasbro can't win, they're always going to disappoint SOME nerd out there. :)

    Windcharger is kind a non-entity to me. Having him as a scout is fine cos I don't see what being a deluxe could add to him

    I rather like the minibots being Legends now. It does kind of defeat the Classics idea of upgrading though, so I'd also be quite happy with scout class minibot updates as well.

    And suddenly I find more people wanting the original Minibots getting the upsize treatment.

    I look at my "Whatever-you-decide-to-call-it" Deluxe BB, Cliffjumper & Ultra Powerglide...Even the upcoming Deluxe Warpath...

    Now honestly, I'm still trying to get used to the idea of seeing 'em boys getting larger. :rolleyes2

    Yes, I'd have vastly preferred a Scout Wheelie. Though that's due to y personal preference of not caring for Legends, not because "Hasbro did it wrong". Who knows, maybe if Universe 2.0 had Scouts Wheelie would have been one of them. But the line didn't. None of the toylines at the time did.

    I like the legends class for giving us some of the minibots but I consider legends to be it's own line that has nothing to do with the other lines.

    I would like to see them as basics in the least. I'm all for the upscaling of the minibots because if your going to get a new body why not make it bigger.

    Yeah that's how I feel. Regardless of how nice some Legends look, they're just too small and inarticulate to fit into what I like to collect. (exception made for ROTF Devastator). I like the alt mode and the character model for Legends Wheelie, but the toy itself isn't enough.

    Legends Wheelie?

    You know they could have magnified that toy into a Scout & I would buy him all over again. :D ream:

    Eh, I don't mind it. Wheelie pal'd around with Daniel half the time and was never shown to be all that tall then (another story when he pal'd around with anyone else though).

    Actually, not a bad idea. i would like to have a Scout Class Wheelie. Would fit better with the Deluxes.
