Don’t Delay. Buy Transformers: The Movie’s Wheelie Today!

Forget about Optimus Prime, Hot Rod, Galvatron, or Unicron. The real star of 1986’s Transformers: The Movie was the diminutive Autobot Wheelie.

Wheelie is part of Takara Tomy’s “Core” class figures. So, in other words, he’s small. In comparison, Wheelie is about half as tall as the ’86 versions of Kup and Hot Rod. However, this also means he’s more affordable than other recent ’86 Transformers. Entertainment Earth has Wheelie up for pre-order, with an estimated ship date of September 2022.

Studio Series has always allowed fans to reach past the big screen and build the ultimate Transformers collection inspired by iconic movie scenes from the Transformers movie universe. Now, the Studio Series line is expanding to include the epic moments and characters from the classic 1986 The Transformers: The Movie, bringing fans a whole new series of screen-inspired figures to collect! This Studio Series Core Class The Transformers: The Movie-inspired Autobot Wheelie figure stands at 3.5 inches and converts from robot to Cybertronian car mode in 12 steps. Comes with a slingshot accessory. This 3.5-inch Autobot Wheelie figure makes a great gift for kids and adults!

This is a step up compared to the original action figure released alongside the movie in the 1980s. Wheelie may not have the heat-sensitive sticker, but at least his face is painted in this version. Sadly, the paint application on this guy isn’t as good as what we saw on the non-transformable Wheelie who came with the Studio Series ’86 Grimlock. And, yes, I will admit that the 2016 Titans Return Legends Wheelie is still better than this new one.

Some say that Wheelie is the most annoying Autobot ever created, but I’m afraid I have to disagree. The dude loves to rhyme and has no problem insulting robots ten times his size! The dude is a little burn machine. Hot Rod and Kup would have probably never made it out of Quintesson’s compound if it wasn’t for him.

If, for whatever reason,  you need a toy review of Wheelie before you buy, check out PrimeVsPrime’s review below:
