    Just a thought for Wheeljack when he comes back in future seasons. Explosions. I believe it has been confirmed that he is a mechanic of some sort. Thinking back to G1, that Wheeljack blew things up a lot and got caught in a lot of his own explosions.

    So just to ask, should this Wheeljack be associated with explosions in any way? Does he like to see/cause them? Will he be like G1 and have his projects blow up on him a lot? Does he disable/set bombs on missions/in the battlefield? Or something entirely different?

    Just to add a few notes: this Wheeljack has only been seen fighting with bare hands and swords. But he does have a bomb/grenade on his waist that's powerful enough to cause a huge explosion to take out an entire platoon of Vehicons.

    He does invent things but I would like him to be a bomb expert.

    I think he'll have a great deal of knowledge of fixing and repairing ships and stuff seeing that the creators said he'll be a mechanic. He could also be a bomb expert too who knows?

    I think his signature move (aka a grenade) is good enough when it comes to Wheeljack related explosions, imho. Though one or two accidental explosions while fixing something wouldn't be horrible. I just wouldn't want it to become something that happens every time he's involved with something in the show.

    G1 please.

    All of his devices backfiring was always the best part about G1 Wheeljack.

    As soon as I read this thread title, I assumed it was about a Wheeljack spinoff directed by Michael Bay.

    Considering that explosions and Wheeljack were used for laughs back in G1, and Prime seems to not want to give many laughs, I can't really say that G1-esque regular explosions seem to be in the forecast.
