    I would say Wheeljack.
    Because he is the amazing jack ass who makes dumb ass Dinobots who near kill the autobots and made tons of things that screwed shit up for the autobots...
    How could you not like him....?!
    What has Bumblebee do nothing important.

    Bee was pretty heroic in the IDW comics, and has been an overall nice guy throughout the various continuities. But I'm going with Wheeljack, because I like the crazy inventor dude more.

    Wheeljack is by far a more interesting character. He's really long overdue for a new toy. Will we see anything for him in 3.0?

    Bumblebee may have lived through the movie, but Wheeljack came back from the dead in Japan and noone was even surprised.

    Odd question. If you had asked our favourite between some of the posterboys in the transformer franchise like OP, Bumblebee, Megs, Soundwave etc it would make some sort of sense.

    Or to choose between diffrent scientist/inventors/spies etc.

    Now its a question between a transformer posterboy and spy (warrior/bodyguard in movie, anoying douchebag in animated)
    and a random transformer inventor, are these two your favorities? or are there another reason you asked the users of this forum to choose between these two?

    That's certainly a random question that doesn't make a lick of sense. If I had to choose though, Wheeljack.

    Of the original Ark crew, these were the two I've always hated.

    Cute little sidekick and know all inventor. At least Bay made BB cool. Wheeljack for the recycling then. Slag, throw in those other pain in the aft know all scientists Perceptor and Jetfire too. Hate them all.

    Nothing against the little guy, but Wheeljack holds more interest for me. There's more depth to him and things to do with him.

    As an engineering tech. student, I'm more partial to Wheeljack. A 50% chance of making something useful combined with a 66.7% chance of injuring himself? What's not to love?

    I just wish I could find what I need to make my WJ look more authentic (as compared to the real Alitalia #539 Stratos).

    Bumblebee is cool too though (both VW Bee and movie Bee). I think I've started preferring the Legends Class movie Bees because he fits in perfectly with the old minicars (Gears, Tailgate, etc.) at that size. (I've even launched 2010 Camaro SS Bee from Metroplex's garage!) Thanks to Reprolabels, I also accomplished my dream of giving 1984 Bumblebee both an insignia and a MicroChange roof decal. To give him a cartoon inspired look, I also added a tiny symbol on his left foot.

    I think I'm gonna have to go with the underdog and say Wheeljack. I like 'Bee, but he's got a lot of exposure the last few years. We need a new crazy inventor.

    If you all wanna know why I made this, its because I want to prove that Wheeljack is more loved then Bumbletard.

    Why does it have to be one or the other? It's not like these two characters really have very many similarities personality-wise, or even design-wise, so they don't compete with each other in the archetype realm.

    If we were talking maybe Ironhide vs Kup as the crotchety, old war-vet. Or Shockwave vs the remaining Mini-Bots from Season 3 as to who's a better housekeeper.

    Bumblebee and Wheeljack are two completely different characters. I like them both, and really have no reason to like one more than the other (except possibly for available merchandise, but that's no fault of the character).
