Transformer of the Day for September 27, 2009


-Faction: Autobot
-Era: Armada-Energon-Cybertron (2002-2006)
-Function: Bounty Hunter
-Motto: “Peace Enforcement is the Name of the Game”
-Notable Toy: Cybertron Two-Pack (Hasbro, 2005)

Notes: Crosswise is an interesting fellow, primarily because his mould was repurposed for so many homages. Shattered Glass Jazz and Ricochet, Smokescreen and Jolt, they all originate from Crosswise. Even his name isn’t original, having been repurposed from a Spychanger. But he’s a great mould, nevertheless, and there have been far worse figures that could have fallen victim to the repaint.


  1. Love this mold. I keep them all in alt mode though. My purple Jolt is such a pretty thing.

  2. I agree. I want to line up Jazz, Ricochet, Smokescreen, Jolt and Crosswise together for a race. Jolt is a thing of beauty.
