"Flying is the ultimate freedom."

Can change into anything from a construction crane to a can opener, then into a weapon in less time than it takes to plug in a phone jack. Even when he's battling on the ground, this former jet fighter has his head in the clouds, daydreaming about flying. His nagging partner, Top-Heavy, can change into a radar-guided, triple-barreled, electro-pulse machine gun.

"Only in battle is there true happiness."

An unhappy loner of few words and fewer opinions. FInds pleasure only in conflict. Otherwise, this stubborn, surly Dinobot is as welcome as a turboworm crawling up an exaust pipe. Solar-powered, his strength increases tenfold in sunlight. Paired with Tyrannitron, a tiny, tempermental terror who'd rather sink his teeth into his opponent's ankle assembly than convert into Snarl's metal-rendering shrapnel rifle.

"Cries and screams are music to my ears!"

A smooth-talking opportunist who uses his eavesdropping abilities on friends and foes alike. Equipped with advanced radio wave and energy sensors, photographic memory and newly improved 2,000 mile range transmission capability. Wingthing, his loyal, lethal cohort, is all too eager to carry out Soundwave's every vengeful whim and diabolical scheme. Upon command, Wingthing turns into a metal-piercing concussion cannon. It's difficult to say which one is more despised by the other Decepticons.

"Know your enemy and victory is yours!"

Sprocket is programmed to take fast, forceful action and no prisoners. This fierce warrior doesn't withdraw from a battlefield until he's covered it with the smoking wreckage of Decepticons.

The Attack Cruiser converts into a vector-thrust hovercopter, armed with front-moounted plasma-pulse machine guns.

"A gun is only as good as the one who holds it!"

When someone needs shooting, he's the one the Decepticons call to pull the trigger! Treadshot can outdraw and outshoot any robot this side of the galaxy. And his partner Catgut, is more than a willing weapon. This snarling, ferocious, 4-legged beast eagerly turns into a powerful, fusion-powered particle blaster with pulse demagnetizer attachment. Like Treadshot, Catgut gets a blast out of his job.
