    I'll get this issue, if only to get a glimpse of what could have been done for the character in the '86 movie and third season of G1. Really liking that CD cover, too.

    Ok I have not questioned any of the "Spotlights" characters but this one I am not so sure about!?!:confused:  Either the Transformers community hates or really hates this character, however if anyone can make this character relevant it is Mr. Furman!!! I just hope at the end of the issue he is not left guarding the base!:2c: 

    Let the coutdown begin as to when this hits the store........and I am hoping for the best!!!!!

    Oh God. Please don't turn Wheelie into a gangsta.
    Personally I'd like to see his original profile expanded upon; him being the sole survivor of an Autobot ship that crash landed. I always thought there was some good mileage to be had from that. Think about it; a feral, wild Wheelie trying to survive on the Quintesson homeworld could be a great book to read.

    Lame. Seriously, there's a reason nobody likes Wheelie, because he sucks.

    I really find it weird/dumb when they try and give boring G1 characters "cool" backstories.

    Agree with the first sentence completely. Disagree with the second sentence completely as well.

    Normally I wouldn't care but they could have used the Spotlight issue to focus on any character other than Wheelie. What about a Starscream Spotlight or an Ironhide Spotlight? Wheeljack? Skywarp? The list goes on and on. I guess the main thing that bothers me is not a Wheelie Spotlight but a lack of "Anyone else instead of Wheelie" Spotlight

    If every page had Wheelie being killed somehow I'd buy it and enjoy it. Other than that, I'm at a loss as to why we're getting Wheelie in the first decade of TF Spotlights.

    I think its going to be alot like Spotlight: Kup, you know? The whole lone Autobot slowly going nuts. This could be AWESOME. The reason Wheelie is Wheelie is because of a mind that degenerates with each hopeless situation :p 


    I don't know, this is exactly the kind of stuff that I get excited over, taking old stuff that was "******ed" and re imagining it to be awesome. Like the new He-man cartoon, or the Transformers movie and the upcoming Speed Racer movie to a lesser extent (the source material was already pretty nifty, but I think you get my point).

    I'll say it again, WAY more interesting than Grimlock or Prime or Megatron. ;)
