    I had this idea for either a rebooted Transformers movie trilogy or an animated series that had evolved from an idea I had for a live-action TF TV series that didn't work out but it reused the G1 humans. (mixed with some from the movies and Animated, namely Sari) But I wondered what the fanbase thinks about reusing characters from past franchises and trying to make them interesting again.

    If they do ever use Chip in any movie, don't make him a paraplegic.

    But then he's just Raf Esquievel. No thanks. Chip has to be a coragoeous and inspirational hero.

    I really want a take on Chip where he's like a nerd. The only reason he was paraplegic was because almost every cartoon at the time required one.

    He jumped out of his chair once.

    He just liked the wheelchair. He didn't need it.

    Slag no, its bad enough of having ten years with nearly the same transformer characters. I sure as heck don't want to see the human characters ending up like that, I'm already sick of Prime, BB, and Starscream, atleast Miko in all her annoying ways is new.

    In the G1 cartoon, he memorized an entire complex formula in his mind and was good with computers. Plus, he DID look like a stereotypical nerd. what made him NOT like a nerd to you?

    Could those handicaped characters rip solid floppy discs in half? I think not.

    Yeah I agree. If Chip is ever seen again, keep him in the chair. I like showing positive characters like that.

    As for other characters, I like Sam from the movies; just wish they would turn it down a notch and focus more on the bots.

    I wouldn't mind at all if old companions returned to the franchise as long as they are done well.

    I like the idea that Chip isn't really paraplegic, and just fakes it for the lulz.

    Besides which, no one is ever really disabled so long as you have COURAGE!

    I wouldn't mind seeing G1 Carly (season 2 era - not post '86 movie) again.

    You could pretty much rename Jack Darby and call him Spike Witwicky and it would work. In fact, I'm not sure why they didn't in the first place... maybe they just didn't want to confuse the audience? Then again, they have multiple versions of Transformers, why not humans? Jack makes a better Spike than IDW Spike, and Sam from the films. Which does bring me to the fact that Spike actually has been re-used twice (thrice counting the G1 comic!) but, to be honest, I'm not feeling either of the modern Spikes.

    Raf... is also very much another take on Chip Chase.

    Now if only they could replace Miko with Carly...

    Really? 'Cause Chip Chase is the ONLY one I rember from that part of my childhood. That is, if a paraplegic who can jump even counts in the first place. Cartoons didn't start getting politically correct and "inclusive" until the 1990s.

    This thread has been owned, anythign else said will be irrelevant to the power that Chip has at his disposal.


    That aside, Spike or Sparkplug and even Chip were for the most part far less irritating than other humans I have seen in all series since.

    We should have a Chip Chase trilogy of movies with the Transformers as guest stars.

    I want to see Chip Chase fight Circuit Breaker. After CB nearly wipes out the Autobots, Chip decides he's had enough, pushes a button on HIS wheelchair, and it starts to transform into an exo-suit of his own design...

    That totally reminds me of some old flash series involving Mr. T and the Transformers, where Steven Hawking went along for the ride for some reason, and then when Starscream called him out on needing a wheelchair, it turns into an exo suit and Steven proceeds to kick Starscream's ass:lol
