Transformer of the Day for July 30, 2009

DOWNSHIFT

-Faction: Autobot (Omnibot)
-Era: Generation One (1984-1992)
-Function: Security Agent
-Motto:
The Best Security is a Good Offense
-Notable Toy: Diaclone (Takara, 1983)

Notes: How I miss finding an offer or two included with your newly-purchased toy, for a figure not available at retail (a boon for those whom a trip to a toy store was a rare occurance). Imagine! Toys in the mail! Is there a greater concept? While Downshift was a diaclone before he was an Autobot, he never made it into stores as a Transformer. His unique size and hyrid, alternate transformation makes him an outstanding find.
