    I prefer Wheeljack. "Que" or whatever was horrible. Waste of time and movie space.

    Did you read the Rising Storm comic? It clearly explains the discrepancy.

    Him and Mirage are participating in a battle and they both get banged up real bad, like Waspinator bad. Ratchet says he can rebuild them, but also acknowledged they won't look the same as they did before.

    even with that, those are comics tie-in, you know that they're not really canon to the movies itself... as the question: in the comics, Elita-1 had 2 different heads BEFORE being killed by Starscream, BEFORE being reformatted as part of the trio with her sisters, it's not something that's important
    Q = Wheeljack, just some name variation, but Q was intended to be Wheeljack, even the credits tells you that
    now, this thread is about what do you prefer, not what's real or what's the intention :p 
    and...
    ok, I think I said too much offtopic, meh

    Q. He lacks many of the characteristics of any incarnation of wheeljack. May as well call mudflap wheelie or Brains Cosmos.

    Que. That way I can pretend that the abomination we got on screen wasn't Wheeljack.

    You WIN for the best response! I agree 100%! If he kept his Cybertronian look from the comic, I'd be fine with calling him Wheeljack. As it played out though, he's Que to me and always will be. Even when I buy his goofy mustached puss and slap it up on my shelf with the other figures. That being said, how long do you think it'll be until we actually get a white red and green repaint of him? Not that I'd bother to buy it as I like to keep my G1 out of my movieverse, but I KNOW people would!

    I'd be interested to see how a G1 repaint would turn out. I mean, I'd buy it either way, because I'm a huge Wheeljack fanboy. But still.

    Que. Have Wheeljack come in the next movie. Transforms into Simmons' maybach and was Que's apprentice back on Cybertron.

    I'd love it if the G1 repaint comes in a two-pack with a G1 repaint Soundwave. They switch their movieverse colors!

    Well the name Wheeljack seems to roll of the tongue easier for a Transformer character, cos when I say 'Q' my mind goes to one of two places: James Bond or Star Trek.

    WheeljackQue.

    Pronounce it how a Japanese person would pronounce Wheeljack, with the soft U at the end.

    I prefer Wheeljack simply because he's an inventor, like his original character. Not only that but although people hate the "hair", I think it kinda fits as a more realistic approach to his flashing "ears" from G1. Although I do love the car he turns into, I think it should've been the other way around; Wheeljack turns into a white Mercedes, while Soundwave turns into the blue Mercedes. Regardless, I still think he's a great character.
