    Sorry for the sloppy digibash, but I just wanted to quickly get the idea across. It just occurred to me that this would probably work for making a G1 Wheelie more cartoon accurate (that is, if you can't afford one of those fancy custom-made Wheelies :)  ).

    I guess this is sort of polishing a turd... but it could also be a decent starting point for one of those "super articulation" mods on an old G1 toy.

    Plus, doesn't everyone have at least one spare Energon Strongarm kicking around by now? :)

    Well, I figured part of the problem with G1 Wheelie is that his head is located in his chest, which is kind of dumb. It'd be easy to place a head on top of his shoulders... and then it occurred to me that Energon Strongarm's head looks a bit like the Wheelie cartoon model, and is about the right size.

    If I had a G1 Wheelie myself, I'd probably rig one up to test it out, but I don't. :(

    even if you fixed the head, wheelie still suffers from crappy sub par spy changer transformation. But the head does fit pretty well

    Oh yeah... for sure. I suppose if someone had a Wheelie and liked the character enough, you could probably do some customizing to give him some decent articulation, maybe attach his forearms to his legs instead to thicken them up...

    Probably more effort than Wheelie deserves of course, but still... :)
