Transformer of the Day for February 20, 2009


-Faction: Autobot
-Era: Generation One (1984-1992)
-Function: Diversionary Tactician
-Motto: “A Look Can Be Deceiving; A Touch Can Be Lethal’”

-Notable Toy: Fast Action Battler (Hasbro, 2008)

Notes: While Smokescreen’s name has ended up on unrelated characters from Armada to Generation 2 Decepticons, his original likeness has certainly received a good toy treatment - the toyrocket statue, the Cybertron homage and certainly the original. That said, I don’t expect many opportunities to use the Fast Action Battlers line, and this redeco is a great way to spotlight the best part of the movie line of toys.

(For more information on Smokescreen, check out the Generation One Transformer Bible.)

(Apologies and thanks to botchthecrab.com for the character image.)
