The show featured two duelling forces. The "good guys" are humans, called the Lightning League. They drove white and silver vehicles with assorted weaponry, and are led by Jayce. The "bad guys" are organic green vegetable-based creatures called the Monster Minds, who tend to take the shape of black and green vehicles. They travel via large green organic vines which can grow in and across interstellar space, that sprout seeds that rapidly grew into further Monster Minds. They are led by Saw Boss.

No backstory was given with the toys for the Lightning League and the Monster Minds doing battle, and so distinct characters were created to allow for a structured story (seen below).


Plot synopsis

Top: Jayce and Audric - each with their half of the magic root.Below: Saw Boss in humanoid form
Top: Jayce and Audric - each with their half of the magic root.
Below: Saw Boss in humanoid form

The plot concerns Jayce, son of Audric, and his quest to rejoin him. The backstory is that Audric was a botanist who did several experiments with biotechnology, one of which blossomed and became a young humanoid girl named Flora. Audric had also created a miracle crop that could thrive in any environment and end galactic hunger. However, suddenly a solar flare mutates his plant into an evil, sentient being named Saw Boss, and changes other plants around Audric's laboratory into similar creatures, who collectively become known as the Monster Minds. Audric manages to create a magical Root that can destroy the Monster Minds, but is forced to flee before he can complete the task. He keeps half himself and gives the other half to his servant, Oon, whom he sends to serve Jayce. Thus, Jayce and his Lightning League friends are constantly on a quest to find Audric and combine the halves of the Root. Image File history File links Jayce_audric_sawboss. ...

The movie

[citation needed]


Due to less than successful toy sales, Jayce's 65 episode run was not followed up, and it ended unresolved. However, according to series producer J. Michael Straczynski, a movie had also been commissioned along with the series, following in the footsteps of other toy based animated series such as Transformers and GI Joe; if the series had proven successful in toy sales, production would have began. Straczynski wrote the script, but due to the failure of the toyline, preparation for the movie was shelved.

Had the movie been filmed, it would have provided a sense of closure on Jayce, with his Lightning League meeting with the originals and being trained on the home world of the Guardians, he would be reunited with his father Audric, but according to Straczynski, Audric would have been killed by Saw Boss as the Monster Minds began a final assault on the galaxy, and in a final battle, Jayce would unite the root and kill Saw Boss, ending the Monster Mind threat forever. NGC 4414, a typical spiral galaxy in the constellation Coma Berenices, is about 17,000 parsecs in diameter and approximately 20 million parsecs distant. ...


List of characters

  • Jayce - Leader of the Lightning League, possessed half of the magic Root, as well as the Ring of Light, a constant deus ex machina to the League's adventures.

Lightning League vehicles

The Lightning League vehicles can operate on pre-programmed battle plans without drivers through commands issued on Jayce's communicator. Military tactics (Greek: Taktikē, the art of organizing an army) are the collective name for methods for engaging and defeating an enemy in battle. ...


Lightning League AI ground vehicles (early)

  • Armed Force - Armed Force is a vehicle with a large golden grappling arm mounted atop it. Gillian had intended it for Audric, but gave it to Jayce instead when Audric was unable to join the League. It seats two, unlike its toy counterpart. Another note about Armed Force's toy counterpart is a gimmick dubbed "Stack n' Attack". Any of the other smaller vehicles could detach its wheeled chassis and attach to the top of Armed Force (a promotional comic in He-Man magazine showed two vehicles stacked atop Armed Force, though this was physically impossible using the toys, as only Armed Force featured two lined up holes suitable for another vehicle's underside to jack into). This never happens in the show; instead, "stack n' attack" refers to the Lightning League vehicles being able to exchange weapons mid-battle.
  • Drill Sergeant - A two-seater vehicle with a drill to dig tunnels. Driven in the opening sequence by Flora, who seems to prefer it, as does Gillian.
  • Quick Draw - A vehicle with a concealed gun in a shield atop the vehicle. Gillian drives it in the opening sequence, but it has no regular driver in the series. Seats one.
  • Spike Trike - A three-wheeled vehicle built for speed. Herc drives it in the opening sequence, and it is his vehicle of choice during the series, as well.
  • Trail Blazer - A large, four-legged vehicle with a front-mounted battering ram., capable of carrying the smaller vehicles. It usually seats one, but has occasionally been seen with unused seating for four. Trail Blazer was stronger and more durable than the other vehicles, but was used much less often for reasons never disclosed (unlike the expenditure of resources that served as an excuse for the more rarely used larger vehicle troopers of the Monster Minds). Trail Blazer is depicted as much larger in scale with the other vehicles than was true with the toy counterparts. While the toy version of Trail Blazer could carry a single smaller vehicle on its back, the cartoon counterpart could carry four of the smaller vehicles within its body, via a platform that lowered from its underside.
  • Battle Base - A mobile fortress that houses all the other vehicles and is usually attached to the League's ship as its bridge. The main weapon is a large elevating gun turret. Battle Base, like Trail Blazer, is of a much larger relative scale in the animation than in its toy form. The Toy for Battle Base had three garages that could each hold a single smaller vehicle, and its control bridge seated two. In the cartoon footage, not only could Battle Base contain all of the smaller vehicles, but even Trail Blazer was seen to be able to enter it. The bridge was a rather large full room.

  • Fling Shot - A vehicle equipped with a catapult, built in "The Stallions of Sandeen." A toy was designed, but never produced.
  • Spray Gunner - A vehicle with a cannon that sprays various fluids, that was added later in the series, but has no introduction episode. The toy did not reach the production stage.
  • Motor Module - A low-riding vehicle with a powerful drive system, often used to field repair other vehicles, or to haul loads in an attachable trailer. It was added later in the series, but has no introduction episode. The toy did not reach the production stage, but was designed to be motorized, and could "Stack-An-Attack" as Armed Force could (the gimmick remained unused in the cartoon).

  • Pride of the Skies II - aka "the Barge", a ship owned by Herc Stormsailer and home to the Lightning League throughout the series.
  • Space Scooter - a small air-bike.
  • Emergency Cruiser - the Pride's seldom used shuttle craft

Monster Mind vehicles

Generally, Monster Mind battles are carried out by clones of the main Monster Minds that are grown from vines. Saw Boss is able to communicate with these clones (and communicate with others with a clone as a medium) telepathically. These clones are referred to as "troopers"; Saw Trooper, Terror Trooper, K.O. Trooper, etc. The true Monster Minds change from their humanoid forms into vehicles upon leaving their headquarters, although they are significantly larger and more powerful than their mass-produced clones. Cloning is the process of creating an identical copy of something. ... Telepathy, from the Greek τῆλε, tele, remote; and πάθεια, patheia, to be effected by, describes the hypothetical transfer of information on thoughts or feelings between individuals by means other than the five classical senses. ...


Monster Minds ground legions (early)

  • Saw Troopers - Vehicles with a large buzzsaw on a rotating stalk.
  • Terror Troopers - Tank-like vehicles with a large, venus flytrap-like mouth mounted on the body.
  • Gun Troopers - Vehicle with a cluster of cannons clenched in its teeth. The main weapon was a multi-headed spiked flail mounted on top of the body.
  • K.O. Troopers - Truck-like vehicles with a large wrecking ball-like stalk.
  • Beast Walkers - Large, four-legged vehicles with a front-mounted claw weapon that are the powerhouse of a Monster Mind clone army. They were seldom used, due to requiring more energy to spawn.

Flail The flail is a medieval weapon made of one (or more) weights attached to a handle with a hinge or chain. ... A wrecking ball is a heavy steel ball, usually hung from a crane, that is used for demolishing large buildings. ...

  • Flapjacks - Van-like vehicles with a catapult; they were designed, but not produced in the toy-line.
  • Lurchers - Vehicles with a front ram, again, not produced in the toy-line.
  • Snapdragons - Smaller four-legged walking vehicles with front-mounted "petals" that opened like a flower to expose a laser cannon.
  • Battle Stations - The Monster Minds' answer to Battle Base, it was unproduced in the toy line. Used in only one episode as it took enormous amounts of energy to spawn.

  • Cruisers - Larger Monster Mind spacecrafts.
  • Scouts/Satellites - Smaller Monster Mind spacecrafts. Both names referred to the same vehicle type in the animation.
  • Drill Vines - Small rocket craft with a drill nose-cone, containing a Monster Mind vine cluster, which were used to penetrate targets and release a growth of vines.
  • Pods - Plant-like insertion craft launched by Cruisers or Scouts, when Drill Vines are not called for.
  • Space Fighters - Small Monster Mind starfighters, used much less commonly than Scouts.

Monster Mind network legions (unrepresented in the toy-line)

  • Expansion Vines - Large vine growths used to infest a planet and spawn Monster Mind Troopers, also sometimes used to connect planets through open space.
  • Spore Vines - Not as large as Expansion Vines, used to deploy biological weapons in the form of gases.
  • Recepticles - Block-like plants that are used to form a teleportation point for Saw Boss's headquarters (originally Audric's lab).
  • Brains - A small plant mass with a single central eye, used for communication by Monster Mind agents of other races.

Toy-line Failure

[citation needed]


Wheeled Warriors suffered from an extremely bad toy launch. The toys arrived on shelves before the cartoon, in order to hit the 1984 Christmas season. The manufacturer then panicked and pulled them from shelves before the cartoon could build a following. Further, the toys featured blank slate humans and rubber brains for pilots, while the cartoon had actual human characters and Monster mind "bosses" who changed from plant beings to vehicles and had hordes of "troopers" that grew from plants. The cartoon also made almost no use of any weapons except the main ones and ubiquitous lasers.

Trivia

An uncredited, unfinished comic based on the series was once published in the French comic magazine Pif gadget #922. Strangely enough, the 13-page adventure ended on a cliffhanger, the next issue of Pif gadget did not include the follow-up story, and in the end, the conclusion to that story was never published. It included characters created specifically for the comic, such as a white-hair, youngish sorceress called Algora who was an ally of Saw Boss'.
