Octane (03-29-09)

Transformer of the Day for March 30, 2009


-Faction: Decepticon (Triple Changer)
-Era: Generation One (1984-1993)
-Function: Fueler
-Motto: “He Who Has Fuel Has Power”

-Notable Toy: European Classics (Hasbro, 1990)

Notes: Unlike his Triple Changer partners, Octane was produced officially offered only in 1986, although he was reissued in Europe as part of their Classics line. In the cartoon, he seems to replace Blitzwing as the great Decepticon traitor (strangly leaving Astrotrain as the loyal one). In the comic, he was more adversarial and drawn with a completely different head. I’m almost surprised the Universe 2.0 version didn’t include the second head as an extra feature.

(Apologies and thanks to toyarchives.com for the toy image.)
