    How would you feel if Wheeljack developed into a similar character to his Armada-self?

    Armada Hot Shot was forced to abandon Wheeljack in a mission that went completely wrong, Megatron saved him and Wheeljack chose to become a Decepticon because of it. What if Bulkhead and Wheeljack were put in a similar situation in a future episode?

    No. I don't like plots being copied. let this Wheeljack have his own story. Please Writers, let him have a story. I really don't want a character who only appears once a season. Either bring him back before this season ends or kill him off.

    I like Armada, but I'd prefer if that didn't happen.

    That was one of the better pieces of character development from Armada, but like most things from Armada it should stay in the past.

    Here I thought this thread would be about Prime Wheeljack taking on more character traits from the G1 incarnation, esp since they're blending the two for the Botcon bio.

    I loved armada. It was also the first TF series I watched every single episode of. But WJ is too late in development to change his personality so much. So bad idea.

    Oh man, I wasn't expecting so many people to be against the idea.

    Weeljack's only been featured in 2 episodes so far. I don't think it's too late at all.

    Yeah, that's not going to gel well with how Wheeljack's been set up in this series.

    Yeah, I agree with this. That said, TFP Wheeljack needs something drastic similar to the Armada story if he's ever going to be interesting.

    So although technically I think it's a bad idea, I voted "good idea."

    Making him turn traitor would at least be something.

    I love Armada Wheeljack but i'd perfer is they renamed the charecter Wind Sheer if we were going to get another opurtunity to reuse him.

    Armada was great, imo.

    but to answer the question ... no, i don't think it would work in TFP. i feel like Wheeljack would hate the Decepticons too much for killing off all the Wreckers n such. plus, while it would be interesting to see Wheeljack vs Bulkhead, i feel like that's the same story of him and Breakdown - the whole we-were-once-comrades-now-we're-on-diff-sides story. so it'd just be the same.

    but i also would like to see Jackie vs Optimus ... :popcorn  just cause. it'll never happen though
