-Faction: Autobot
-Era: Generation One (1984-1992)
-Function: Scientist
-Motto: “One’s Ultimate Test Lies in One’s Molecular Structure”

-Notable Toy: Hasbro Deluxe (Hasbro, 1985)

While it was always a great shame Takara never fixed his face for his initial 2005 reissue, it was pretty cool that the original release retained its limited microscope features.
