    If you've read some of the Transformers Spotlight comics, and watch Transformers Prime, you notice that Wheeljack is trying to be Drift. Some other fans have noticed but I think I have a solution: Have Drift in a future episode as either a mentor or a fellow student (like Prowl and Lockdown in Animated, but allies).

    Hell no. I think most of us want to forget about that Poochie-bot, in spite of what James Roberts has done for the character.

    The idea of offensively upbeat Drift interacting with the cardboard props that is the Prime Autobots is kind of amusing.

    But no, please. We've already got one sword-swinging idiot pseudo-badass in teh shgow, we don't need two.

    They need to establish Wheeljack more. No room for "drifting".......

    Wheeljack has enough driftiness although he's more barbarian in style than Drift. Drift himself would take too much attention away from the rest of the crew. More interesting is that since G1 Wheeljack was known as a scientist, who is going to be the mad scientist of this era's Transformers? Que, and I think to kids, Que was never Wheeljack, as he was called Que in the movies. SO, maybe Que will be the mad scientist.

    So... Give him a different head and remove the green?

    And besides, even if he does get killed off, why would they need to replace him?

    I'm okay with either but then again I didn't really grew up with G1 Wheeljack when I was growing up so I wasn't really bugged about him being a warrior this time around.

    If there's going to be a scientist on the show it should be either Perceptor and/or Que.
