Written by Big Bot on July 14, 2008 | Comics,IDW Publishing,News | Tags: , ,

The release of Transformers Spotlight: Wheelie last month completed the third set of Spotlight issues, but has left fans wondering who would be in the next set of 5.

IDW Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall has posted a teaser for the main character in the next Spotlight issue. The picture shows a close up of the characters head. The picture is drawn by Casey Coller, who has been signed up to draw the whole issue after his work on Apocalypse Comics’ variant cover for All Hail Megatron #1. The issue will also be written by All Hail Megatron writer Shane McCarthy, with a scheduled release date of December.

One quick look at the pages suggests it is everyone’s most hated robot of the original cartoon series (and Transformers The Movie), Wheelie!┬áMany signs point to him being the character, having already appeared in a monitor in Spot: Optimus Prime and with the Spotlight series focusing on less popular characters.
