Transformer of the Day for October 20, 2009


-Faction: Decepticon (Duocon)
-Era: Generation One (1984-1992)

-Function: Assault Team
“Believe in Yourself, But only if You Both Agree
-Notable Toy: Basic (Hasbro, 1987)

Notes: After the animated movie, it seemed that Hasbro and Takara were trying everything to keep the Transformers toy line fresh and interesting. Heads and guns that transform into other robots? Check. Hey, triple changers were a hit, how about a six-changer? Check. Pull back engines? Check check. A transformer that splits into two vehicles?… And thus Flywheels is born. He’s not particularly articulate but he sure is pretty.

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