    Was/is Hubcap intended to be a movie-verse Seeker?

    The movie-verse Seeker's "gimmick/theme" seems to be "Old Vehicles", and Hubcap is a movie style Transformer with a car alt. mode from the 1930s...

    Not really a stretch to imagine him being a member of that group.

    I'm aware that not all movie style transformers with "vintage" alt. modes are intended to be Seekers (Divebomb for example), and there's nothing to really indicate that as being the intention behind him, but on the other hand there's nothing saying that he isn't.

    Thoughts?

    Well,here's one reason why: Hubcap Loves Retro. (HLR)

    not really,but would be kinda cool if Hubcap is a Vintage intuitionist.
    really i think he Aint a Seeker,he look's very shiny and new to be one. well to me atleast.

    I asked that question a while ago.

    I don't think it was ever covered, but it could be possible.

    Eh, I think I'll go ahead and count him as one in my personal canon. Gives me a reason to get him, and gives Ransack an Autobot counterpart to shoot at...

    Why not, right? :wink:

    It's always possible. I can't wait for the Model T transformer.

    I don't think he is a Seeker. His bio makes him sound too young and suggests he's new to Earth.

    considering his car mode has been customized, he's not an exact 30's car, i don't count him as one, but you can if you want
