    Ok, I have already stated i'm buying 2 of them. One to blow up and one to keep in package so i have the whole universe run. BUT...what does everything think of this addition to the 25th anniversary and what r ur plans for the little guy? I know there has to be some people who love him, so come on out and let us know.
    P.S. I promise I won't give u any crap about it. We each have our favorites :wink:

    It's a shame the character is getting what looks to be a fairly good toy. Ideally, Wheelie should be represented by a turd and a rhyming dictionary in a box.

    Awesome. Now I have both molds of Wheelie. Minus non transforming toys, reissues, repaints, and foreign wheelies.

    Bring on Robot Heroes Wheelie vs Trypticon!

    I still have the original toy, which is terrible. I never saw any of season 3 so the character doesn't bother me. Verdict: gonna buy it, gonna open it, gonna put it on display with classi-verse.

    Wow. Must be nice to be so loaded that you'll buy two of the same toy - that you don't even want - "just to have one", and to destroy the other.

    And people wonder why terrorists call us overindulgent. "Well, I don't want it, but I've got the money for it, so I'll buy it anyways..."

    :rolleyes2

    GO WHEELIE! Spotlight Wheelie really changes your view on the character.

    Tenime, i probably wouldn't bring myself to destroy a transformer regardless of how annoying they were. Besides the good point of the spotlight did get brought up and i have begun to rethink wheelie a bit. Oh and yes I do have enough money to buy 2 of a legend class if i wanted too. At only $6-$7 max they're not that expensive.

    It's your money, if you wanted to shove it up your butt & set it on fire, it's your perogative (am I missing an "R" after the "P"?).

    But to buy something you hate & despise, "just 'cuz" isn't the best reason I've ever heard...

    ok, his vehicle mode looks like a legend class deluxe classics bumblebee and the robot mode (i apologize for this) looks like wheelie (flame away guys) with the doors and front wheel area coming out to be his arms and the back unfolding to become his legs. the hood is the chest piece and he his head looks like the cartoon wheelie one only downgraded to legends status. It still looks to be a good rendition of wheelie. They have pics of Rodimus, Warpath and Cosmos legends figures too with Dinobot and Hotshot (armada) being on the page to the left of them.

    Just received my magazine today (WOO!), and I think Wheelie is my second favorite legends figure out of the four shown. Warpath is probably my number 1.

    The front end of his alt mode reminds my the front of the most evolved form of the agency super car in Crackdown.

    I also like the way his legs look.

    It's not "just cuz," it's to symbolically strike at this most hated of characters by... er... paying Hasbro for him. This isn't going to work VERY well, is it? If enough people do it, it's going to give them the idea that what the average Transformers buyer really wants is more Wheelie.

    I think wheelie as a character is awesome, it was mainly his high pitched voice that got on my nerves.

    It takes skillz to rhyme everything you say 24/7.

    Really?

    I mean, if you're serious, just print a picture, burn it, and donate the toy to a charity or sumptin'.
