    The first Transformer on TV? What does that have to do with anything?

    I am having a lot of difficulty understanding what exactly you are trying to say.

    Can you clarify?

    Good for you? Isn't this just a variation on a "Could Wheeljack have been better?"-thread?

    By that logic, Bumblebee needs more respect because he was the first Volkswagen Transformer to be seen on TV.

    Megatron needs more respect because he was the first cartoon villain to transform from a robot to a giant flying gun.

    (What I'm saying here is that there's virtually no logic as to the reasoning behind him wanting Wheeljack to have more respect based on his 'facts')

    I think Soundwavedredd2 has seen when a mod posts 'Thread Closed' and then locks it and just assumed that writing 'Thread Closed' makes the thread lock itself and that anyone can do it. Like 'Open Sesame' but in reverse. And for messageboard threads rather than hidden Arabian treasure caves.

    Does Wheeljack need more respect? Maybe. Although this thread has probably just lowered his respectability rating a little.
    But Wheeljack gets by. TFP is giving him good outing these days. The Bay movie? Depends on if you think Wheeljack was actually in it or not.

    The OP should get a TFW noob badge, showing his powers of absolutely nothing.

    Edit: Does anyone else think this is an alt ID for tfprime32?

    Of course Wheeljack should get more respect. He hasn't even been awarded an appearance in the live action movies yet. So, essentially has gotten zero respect. Most TFs deserve better than zero respect.

    And that abomination that was in the movie, that old man, ugly and balding and begging for his life like a coward they named Que, that thing is not and will never be Wheeljack in my eyes. I wish the fandom would quit trying to force the name wheeljack on that pathetic piece of metal. Don't even get me started on that one.

    To quote the dude

    "what does anything have to do with vietnam, what the **** are you talking about?"

    But if you are on about WJ, he was in DOTM but had his name changed to Que and looked like Einstien.
    Again Bay messing around with transformers and not giving us what we want.

    In this case we should appreciate what he did. We want Wheeljack. Not that abomination known as Que to be called Wheeljack. There is nothing about that character that matches Wheeljack other than he is an inventor. Wheeljack is not an old, frail, coward.

    +1 for a Lebowski reference. :thumbs2: 

    But -1000 for using the lamentable, vague and completely subjective phrase of "what we want".

    What we want are robots that look and sound like the characters we remember.

    We have that with

    Optimus prime (except for flames....so lame!)
    Bumblebee (being yellow I guess...but looking more like hotshot)
    Megatron (except for no arm mounted cannon)

    Ironhide and ratchet have some recongnisable features.

    But most of the other transformers are mostly a dull grey which makes them very hard to tell which is which, especially during battle scenes. Plus no real character development for the robots outside the top three. Bay left that to th human characters (not that MB knows much about character development)

    This topic has been discussed to death before countless times (and I don't see it stopping anytime soon). I'll leave it at that. :)
