Salvo 74 (e-Hobby Exclusive, 2004)

Profile (Translated from the Trading Card)
Function: Hunter / Seeker
Transformation: Beetle
Ability: One form of clone soldier created by the Insecticons. Their template, the psychological warfare expert Bombshell, creates them by destroying machinery with his "insecti-shells," then exposing the resulting wreckage to his Electronic Clone Beams. These Salvo units are equipped with the same abilities and weaponry as Bombshell, but haven't the intelligence to handle advanced tactics or special skills. They are therefore hardwired to invade enemy territory and bombard all equipment there en masse.
Weapons: Assault Mortar, Twin Ion Impulse Blaster, Dart Guns

Shot Hole 73 (e-Hobby Exclusive, 2004)

Profile (Translated from the Trading Card)
Function: Invader
Transformation: Grasshopper
Ability: One form of the clone soldiers mass-produced by the Insectrons' self-replicating capability. Possesses almost no individual personality or thinking capacity, instead acting in a swarm with its identical clones. Furnished with physical abilities equal to its original template, the espionage operative Kickback, but conversely, has extremely low intelligence. Invades enemy territories in great numbers, haphazardly destroying buildings, focusing purely on consuming resources and food and carrying them off as raw materials for Energon cubes.
Weapon: Electrothermic Blast Tube

Grandstand Convertors: Alphatron

Alphatron is one of the most versatile of the Convertors because not only is he a fearsome warrior robot but also a complete force of 14 micro space-fighters. This great skill means that Alphatron can surround and entrap an enemy all on his own and then switch back to a robot to destroy them.
