News Post: Hasbro Applies For Two New Transformers Trademarks - Autobot Wheelie And Backtrack
Me Wheelie say, dead in the past I should have stayed!
Seriously hope he's not in any upcoming shows or TF5.
Well, Wheelie's back. Time for celebration.
Oh sorry the names we were looking for are Dai Atlas and Minerva.
Backtrack could be a Rewind re-naming.
WHEELIE IS BACK!!! Fanboys like a fangirl
Also, Backtrack is an unreleased movie character, that turned into a motorcycle, which could mean a Groove retool.
Well, a different Wheelie already popped up in ROTF, and it looked like he died in DOTM, so I don't think he'd appear in TF5. Then again, Brains showed up in AOE, so...
We already know a Legends Wheelie is intended to be coming soon

My bet is on an orange Legends BB repaint.
I think it's more CW than TF5 (which we're kind of far from, but anything is possible).
I really hope they consider giving him a new mold. A repainted Blackjack would be awful...
An orange Legends BB wouldn't be so bad... At least the mold is similar to the Wheelie design, but I have a bad feeling Wheelie will be a CW Blackjack repaint. They've been doing a lot of repaints with this line, seems like, and most of them are kind of bad. Especially with how they've been [over]using that Deluxe Chopper. Now it's the Groove bike getting a bunch of repaints...
Well, we seem to be getting a new Decepticon for Galvatronus! Maybe!
I don't hate Wheelie. Glad to see he's getting a toy.
The Wheelie they made from the RTS Jazz mold was pretty good, but was more like Wheelie on P90X. This Wheelie should be a little bit more in line with what Wheelie is, even if he is a Legends BB repaint.
Hope this means new Wheelie characters. Voiced by Chance the Rapper I AM NOT LETTING GO OF THIS DREAM.
Backtrack is interesting...
masterpiece wheelie!!! no really, i think that with the homerun that bee was, wheelie could be an interesting, fun, creative and off the wall fig that could wind up being a sleeper hit if done right.
More Wheelie is a good thing.
I'm not too sure if your joking or not. If your referring to the movie bay wheelie, then I have to agree, I hated him and is not worthy of the wheelie name. But I can see by your first sentence structure that you're referring to the G1 wheelie, and I can't disagree more.
I really do hope it is G1 wheelie that what this is for.
For Backtrack they could use either Legends Groove to homage the unreleased movie fig (as well as Gobot Night Ranger) or Blackjack to homage the Mini Con from Armada.
Wheelie will hopefully be a new legends mold but I hope we see more of him but without that annoying voice and or speech pattern from G1.
Immediately after I read the term Backtrack I automatically thought of Outback,just picturing in my head that was him.I really would love to see one of the least talked about TF's get his own figure after nearly 30 years.
And am I mistaken but didn't Outback have an Aussie Accent back from G1 or was that someone else?.Later guys,oh and as for Wheelie I realize he could be one of those Love/Hate kind of characters but for me I never really had/have a problem with him,guess we all our opinions.
