Transformer of the Day for July 28, 2009

FREEWAY

-Faction: Autobot (Throttlebot)
-Era: Generation One (1984-1992)
-Function: Saboteur
-Motto:
Words Can Cut Deeper than Steel
-Notable Toy: European Classics (Hasbro, 1991)

Like the other Throttlebots, Freeway’s engineering seems to come directly from the Decepticon Battle Chargers of the previous year, albeit without the automated transformation feature. That said, there is something to be said for the pull-back motors that work in both vehicle and robot mode. Freeway, however, has the unique distinction of becoming my very first Internet-purchased Transformer way back in 1994. It’s been all downhill since then.

(Apologies and thanks to shmax.com for the toy pic.)
