Streak BT-03 (Binaltech, 2004)

Profile (Translated from the Character Card) 
BT-03 Cybertron Gunner Streak

● Function: Gunner
● Transformation: Subaru Impreza WRX
Despite his speed and manoeuvrability, Streak is not a warrior. His constant talking is tedious yet can ease tense situations but in reality he uses it as a shield to hide the emotional scars from past battles. Streak's body was built before the other Binaltech numbers but after an EDC audit and concerns over his mental state, his introduction into service was postponed. He proved his abilities through gruelling simulations and verbal examinations and was successfully returned to the line of battle.

G1 Gobots (Collectors Edition, 2004)


84 Dimensional Exploration Experimental Team G1 Gobots
Function: Dimensional Exploration Experimental Team
● These are the first group of warriors on Seibertron to call themselves “Gobots”. Although they have the appearance and transformational ability like normal Transformers, they are in fact an alien race from another universe in disguise. They are a specialised team originally comprised of hostile factions but they have joined forces to save their race from a catastrophic crisis which has befallen their home world. They conduct covert operations on planet Seibertron such as espionage, diplomacy, space-time interference experiments. They have even imparted their own technologies on Seibertron such as transporter devices and bio-mechanical engineering. They are said to have contributed to the creation of the new generation of Transformers such as the future “Spychangers”.

Bluestreak BT-19 (Binaltech, 2008)

Profile (Translated from the Character Bio)
BT-19 Cybertron Bluestreak

● Function: Gunner
● Transformation: Subaru Impreza WRX
● Weapon: Ion Charged Diffusion Rifle
Streak is a warrior well known for his marksmanship and talkative nature. Hailing from the original timeline, separate from that of the Binaltech warriors, he is on a mission to save the lives of his comrades. As the existence of the Binaltech world is classified for the inhabitants of the “Official World”, only his core unit was transported to this world where he was given a Binaltech body so he could carry out local missions. Here, he became “Bluestreak”. The name is an expression of “tedious talk” as well as “blue line”. Amongst his many codenames, this one accurately represents his personality.

Cybertron General Commander Convoy

● Function: Former General Commander
● Transformation: Dodge SRT-10
As the General Commander of the Cybertron army, he led his troop into battle but in 2005 he was killed during the Unicron War and his spark became one with the Matrix. His body was impounded by the E.D.C (Earth Defence Command) but a kiss from Melissa, a Kiss Player, revived him. Her abilities made Convoy an expert “knife wielder”. Can Convoy bridge the divide between humanity and the Transformers? Convoy’s body was restored with a mysterious parisitech fusion which joined the Convoy unit with an Earth made artificial Transformer.

Arcee BT-21 (Binaltech, 2008)

Profile (Translated from the Character Bio) 
BT-21 Cybertron Arcee

● Function: Warrior
● Transformation: Honda S2000
● Weapon(s): Dart Storm Gun; Riot Shield
On one hand Arcee is kind hearted and loyal on the other hand she is a ruthless warrior towards her enemies. Her Binaltech body was given to her as an expendable shell so she could participate in high risk experiments for Binaltech research which has now become the subject of a global technological competition. The Binaltech body is tough enough to withstand hostile environments and unforeseen disasters but in an emergency her life core is quickly transferred to a safe environment. In combat, this body is not suited for the psychological games she was inherently good at but its resilience is extremely useful. Her main weapon, the Dart Storm Gun, is a powerful firearm which can continuously fire rounds of bullets from the long barrel by using electronic ignition.

Masterpiece Optimus Prime MPM-12

The best thing about the fourth Transformers film, Age of Extinction was the welcome return of the cab-over-engine (COE) truck mode for Optimus Prime. It wasn't long in the film until the return of the long nosed truck mode but it showed the G1 styled vehicle could work as an alternate mode for Optimus Prime on the big screen. Four years later the COE styled truck returned once again in the 2018 Bumblebee movie.

This reclusive samurai has a habit of recounting memories to himself without anyone else around to listen.
