The news that Wheelie is in the new movie has caught me blindsided. Obviously, the character is a figure of fun and derision for most of us but could he work as an R/C car in Revenge of the Fallen? Is that an inspired choice or insipid condemnation of our beloved franchise? Personally, I'm going with YES! FUN! YES! - modern incarnations of TF have been begging for a robot that turns in to a toy, and to give that role to possibly the most (sym)pathetic character (next to Waspinator) makes me giggle. But then, what's his toy gonna be like? Could it even be in scale? Perhaps an additional character-toy in the style of Frenzy (to Barricade) or Skorps (to Blackout)? Or, dagnammit, is Wheelie just too lame for us to ever love him again? (Or has Michael Bay just crossed the line messing with such an iconic character?) All hail the new Failbot! Edit: Oh, oh, oh - moment of genius - get him voiced by Bobcat Goldthwait. Yes.
