First Look at Wheelie Toy from Transformers Revenge of the Fallen

Toys are the least reliable “source” for information about the movie, but while talking about the first peek we get of The Fallen, /Film also picked up on a new image of Wheelie.

One of the other Transformers featured in the film (we’ve reported on him in the past) is a little remote controlled monster truck that Sam and friends use to get into tight sports. TF08 also scored the first photo, from the packaging of the toy, of Wheelie in Autobot robot mode.

I like the idea that mass means something in the movies. No longer will a pistol transform into the Autobot menace and leader of the Decepticons, and no more tape decks and ghettoblasters changing into towering robots.

I am puzzled about the special feature on the packaging that says “Switches from Decepticon to Autobot” there and hope its a toy gimmick and not plot. If there is a double agent in the mix, I hope its not Wheelie. But also cool is the power grid that was iconic to the original toy boxes of the 80s. I had a file collection of those cutout cards for every toy I owned.

I am also releived that if they are involving Wheelie, that he would be adapted to a useable bot with some sort of purpose. Perhaps we will get some small scale asskickery with Frenzy on the 3 apples high division. I can only hope that they make Wheelie voiceless like Frenzy was instead of his childish speaking in rhyme he did all the time.

Dammit. Even thinking about the animated Wheelie has me rhyming.
