    I dont know about you guys but he stinks in DOTM no fight action no toughness had to beg for his life where as an Autobot will never beg he will fight till the end no matter what. And his face OMG what can i say was it supposed to be a Transformer? or a Human Transformer?

    Yeah. I hate his head design too. Other than that I didn't really care for him.

    So all Autobots are supposed to be badass fighting machines, huh?

    He isn't a soldier like Ironhide. Wheeljack is an inventor/scientist. He's not supposed to be on the front lines fighting, but rather back at base camp working on weaponry and other tech.

    Again, not a soldier. He has weapons, yes, because he's fighting in a war. I would be surprised if any Autobots did not have a weapon of some sort. He was held prisoner, then mercilessly executed by the Decepticons. Begging for his life is perfectly understandable.

    I haven't read the prequal comics, but I have read about them. I believe that in them, Wheeljack has a G1-esq face. Then, while helping out the other Autobots, he gets his shit thoroughly wrecked by Shockwave. It's stated that he'll pull through, but won't be the same again. Basically, we're looking at a fleshless skull in DOTM.

    Old topic is old.

    But no, not all Autobots are fierce warriors. It's called diversity.

    If you can't accept him as Wheeljack, just think of him as Que.

    I loved everything about Wheeljack. One of my favorites of the movieverse.

    He really wasn't Wheeljack so I wouldn't stress about it.

    Exactly!

    I had no problem with him whatsoever. When we first saw the picture of his head on set a while back I was expecting something super stupid like Jetfire. Come to think of it I think that shot we first saw his head in was the execution scene cuz Soundwaves head was there too.

    Why isn't it acceptable for this guy to be Wheeljack, but everyone is perfectly okay with calling the Corvette Sideswipe? :confused:  Those two characters have literally nothing in common except that they're both Autobot cars.

    Fans: We want Wheeljack for TF3!

    *Bay gives us an inventor with light-up bits on the side of the head, which gives him more in common than a lot of other nameslaps in the movieverse, is credited partially as such in the credits, while literally everything else associated with the movie from toyline to adaptations calls him such*

    Fans: That guy's Que! Give us Realjack!

    I thought he rocked! Think about it. All the bots got some sort of fun screen time even if it was short. And I felt he fit into the plot perfectly. ...
    just kinda sad what barry did to him though. =(

    though i do not hate him nor like him, somehow his death was very (to me) very sad. he did not want to die and in my opinion, his death was tragic :C

    He didn't just beg for his life, he begged that the others too. But seriously, he's just an inventor, not a brave warrior.
