It won't be Wheelie. They'd NEVER do Wheelie.

Um... They kinda... did. And surprisingly, it was actually pretty damn good.

My wish is I hope the Autobot's Surveillance Catilla will be the new one that will be previewed in the the new issue of Transformers Spotlight I hope I made the right guessed. If not I hope the Transformer character that will be selected is:cheers: my favorite the Decepticon's Swamp Warrior known as Skullcruncher.

Actually, Catilla would be neat, but doesn't he have visor style eyes?

It looks like it could be either Thundercracker, Dirge, Smokescreen or Bluestreak... I don't think McCarthy knows any characters post 1985 well enough to be able to write a Spotlight about one of them.

Outside chance... Breakdown.

http://i21.tinypic.com/97oe2c.jpg - that is full of win.

Hmmm, looks like a very similar take to Blaster, based on the three dialogue-free pages - adoration of the masses and all that.

Quicksilver retread expected.

Neat. Looks nice anyway. Autobots shown having other pastimes besides battling is alway a plus with me. Who knows...McCarthy may actually do well here :\

It'd be cool if his speed was a result of another Jhiaxus experiment gone wrong. Predictable, but it'd make sense in continuity.

I wish they'd make a Blurr toy that looked that damned good! :clap: Has to be one of the best looking Tf's I've seen (besides Nova Prime), and a few others.

So his knowledge of TF characters goes all the way up to 1986? Impressive.

Return of the revenge of the over-abundance of glowing eyes. :( Still doesn't make any sense and the bare stupidity of the effect distracts me, as always.

Not sure if I like the (a bit too) close analogy to human athletics, but otherwise cautiously optimistic.

In Five Faces of Darkness part 1: Blurr did complain how he could have beaten everyone in that Cybertronian sponsored "olympic-like" event. I imagine this ties that little loophole together of what he was talking about possibly?

Well, maybe Jhiaxus invented a coffee-making machine. And Blurr was given an overdose, that's why he is so jittery.

Blurr: always running from the memories of what Bay did to his childhood.
