One of the best-known engineers among the Autobots, Wheeljack can be counted on to put together a gadet for pretty much any occasion; just beware the potential blast radius.

History

Wheeljack’s reputation as an engineer developed before the war ever began, and his competence had him working on a wide variety of projects in plenty of places across the planet. Wheeljack’s early work occasionally exposed him to some of the key members of what would become Optimus Prime’s Autobot faction. That early exposure, along with his distaste for the extreme tactics employed by the Decepticons, led Wheeljack to join the Autobot cause early on in the war.

Constantly curious, Wheeljack’s work and personal projects are often indistinguishable, though things like keeping track of time or tidying up are often waylaid in the process. When it comes to science, he’s a jack of all trades. From frame rebuilds to hacking the system to impromptu weapons engineering (and maybe the occasional explosion), if you can name it, Wheeljack has probably done something like it during his time as an Autobot scientist. Unlike many of his peers among the faction’s engineers, Wheeljack does not specialize in weapons, although he’s whipped up a few in a pinch. His broad skillset has served him and his faction well.

This was particularly useful for Optimus Prime’s team on Earth, and later the Autobot group led by Bumblebee. Once they returned to Cybertron and the war ended, however, Wheeljack’s innate curiosity and his willingness to tolerate both the neutrals and Decepticons aboard had him joining the Lost Light crew. Surely he’s come out of the labs since then, right…?

Colony: Abyssalas12 August 2017Members of the Lost Light visit the colony of Abyssalas, an underwater society populated primarily by scientific-minded individuals with various aquatic alt modes, ranging from underwater vehicles, to alts modeled after organics, to organic-shaped vehicles. It's like a whole city full of Wheeljacks.
Topsy Turvy12 July 2017The !Lost Lighters hit the Lost Light with a bomb snuck past their defenses in the frame of a mangled pair of cassettes: !Frumble. Without any particular design or reason, a number of the crews were apparently swapped into different bodies.
Trobble Yall29 June 2017Fortress Maximus buys an adorable, fluffy pet from a pet shop on the Elemens' space station, PR-138. What he doesn't realize is that this cute little 'trobble' is about to become a problem much bigger than cleaning litterboxes and keeping it off the furniture.
Rebirth of Unicron4 May 2017The Lost Light follows the Shivan monolith all the way to earth, meeting up Elita One's ship along the way. As more monoliths arrive, the crew uses this chance to visit Earth once more despite the Earth Defense Command telling them not to. They decide to be discreet.
