Character Bios


Optimus Prime: blue with dark red flames Peterbilt 379EX with trailer

The noble Optimus Prime is the latest in the ancient line of Autobots to accept the mantle of leadership. Now, he uses his knowledge and strength of those who came before him to fearlessly lead the Autobots in their battle against the villainous Megatron and his Decepticons.

Bumblebee: yellow with black stripes 2011 Chevrolet Camaro SS

Bumblebee has been the first line of Autobot reconnaissance since joining the war against the Decepticons. Bumblebee arrived on earth before any other Autobot to track down, make contact with, and protect Sam Witwicky from the Decepticons.

Ratchet: lime with white stripes 2009 Hummer H3 Search and Rescue vehicle

Ratchet acts as the Autobots' cheif medical officer. He prefers to spend his time creating new fighting techniques that will cause the most amount of damage to Decepticons while leaving his fellow Autobots unharmed.

Ironhide: black 2007 GMC Topkick C4500

Ironhide is the Autobots' weapons expert and tests all new hardware for safety and effectiveness. As a result, his body is full of unique, highly destructive technology. In robot or vehicle mode, no Autobot is more ready for a firefight.

The Wreckers: Topspin, Leadfoot, Roadbuster

      Topspin: blue 2010 Jimmie Johnson NASCAR Chevy Impala #48 Lowe's/Kobalt

Autobot Topspin pushes himself to the limit in combat, even when up against the biggest and baddest Decepticons.

     Leadfoot: red 2010 Juan Pablo Montoya NASCAR Chevy Impala #42 Target

Leadfoot applies his knowledge of science to create bigger and louder weapons for his Autobot allies.

     Roadbuster: green 2010 Dale Earnhardt Jr. NASCAR Chevy Impala #88 AMP Energy/National Guard

Roadbuster is a no-nonsense bot. He’s found that allowing humans to ride with him – especially professional race car drivers – sharpens his tactical skills and knowledge of Earth’s road network. Even Transformers sometimes like to sit back, relax and go along for the ride!

Sideswipe: silver 2012 Chevy Corvette Centennial convertible

Sideswipe was built to fight. He is sleek, fast, and single minded in battle and can covert from vehicle to robot at blinding speed. Sideswipe uses every trick in the book to get close to his opponent and put his powerful swords to work.

Sentinel Prime: red Rosenbaurer Panther airline firetruck

Sentinel Prime preceded Optimus Prime in the Dynasty of Primes and served as the captain of The Ark. He is a legendary leader and commander, and his accomplishments are so highly regarded that it's hard to tell what is fact and what is a myth. Sentinel Prime vanished centuries ago along with his legendary ship, The Ark. New data suggests that they were lost somewhere in space, which may mean big trouble for the Decepticons if Sentinel returns!

Dino: red 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia

Dino doesn't need to rely on firepower to take down his Decepticon foes. His quick speed, swords and fighting skills are all that is necessary.

Que: blue 2011 Mercedes-Benz E550

Que might not be the best in combat, but his inventions and new weapons aid the Autobots in the war against the Decepticons.

Brains: laptop

Brains, a former Decepticon, spends his days hanging out with his buddy, Wheelie. You won't find him in the battlefield, but his research proves to be very helpful to the Autobots and NEST.

Wheelie: dark blue RC toy truck

After switching sides to the Autobots, Wheelie has proved to be a worthy ally because of his knowledge of the Decepticons.


Shockwave: no alt mode

Cruelly efficient and unfeelingly logical, Shockwave came to Earth in search of the Allspark shortly after Megatron. His cold devotion to logic and his peerless intellect, combined with his raw physical strength, make him one of the few Decepticons that can truly be called Megatron's rival. After decades of imprisonment underneath Chernobyl, Shockwave has begun to stir, awaiting his chance to escape his prison and avenge himself on his captors, his rivals and his enemies alike.

Megatron: Mack Titan Tanker truck

Megatron is the leader of the Decepticons. He is a master of warfare and disciple of The Fallen. Megatron leads the Decepticons on their endless crusade for power and control whether on Earth, Cybertron or the Moon.

Starscream: gray F-22 Raptor

Starscream is one of the most feared Decepticons, but he is also a big coward. But he is also practical. As Decepticon Air Commander, Starscream rules the skies and attacks his Autobot foes from above- as long as he has an advantage over them.

Soundwave: silver 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Soundwave's patience is legendary. He is willing to sit perfectly still for weeks, filtering through billions of data streams and transmissions to find the information that will give the Decepticons the advantage.

Barricade: black 2007 Saleen Mustang Police Car (not shown in car mode)

Barricade is the perfect Earth infiltrator and inquisitor. Smaller than most Decepticons, his mass is perfect for an automobile disguise, specifically that of an unsuspecting police car.

The Dreads: Crankcase, Hatchet, Crowbar

     Crankcase: black Chevy Suburban Police Vehicle

Cranckcase specializes in stealing information.

     Hatchet: black Chevy Suburban Police Vehicle

Hatchet is a master strategist for the Decepticons.

     Crowbar: black Chevy Suburban Police Vehicle

Crowbar specializes in getting into secured areas and systems.

Laserbeak: various alt modes

Laserbeak serves as a scout and spy for the Decepticons, recording information to return to his masters and hunting down human and Cybertronian targets over long distances.

The Driller: no alt mode

The Driller is Shockwave's pet and means of transportation. The Driller can tunnel through anything and can become very destructive when he comes above ground.

unknown: Superfund armored truck (only shown in vehicle form)

This nameless Decepticon carried the pillars that the Decepticons used in their plan of taking over Earth. Many believe his name to be Payload.

Igor: hatchling/Long Haul head

Made from the head of Long Haul, Igor follows Megatron around wherever he goes.

unknown: Waste Management Garbage Truck

This Decepticon scanned a Waste Management garbage truck in the D.C. invasion.

unknowns: 2 red firetrucks (only shown in vehicle form)

These Decepticons were only seen once. When the Decepticons invaded Washington, D.C., these two scanned red firetrucks as their disguise.

unknown: white police car

This Decepticon scanned a white, D.C. police car in the Washington, D.C. invasion.

Headbanger: black truck (fan name)

Given the name Headbanger by some of the fandom, he transforms into a black truck. This disguise helps him sneak up on helpless humans so that he can vaporize them.

Devcon: Russian missile launcher

Devcon is a powerful Decepticon, but he is super slow. He is best suited for battling his foes from a long distance using his strong firepower. If an agile Autobot gets too close, it could mean the end of the line for Devcon.

Watchbot: wrist watch

Watchbot is a sneaky Decepticon that can attach to a human's nervous system. Whatever the human hears, says or does will be relayed to the higher ranked Decepticons.

* A few of the bios were written by myself. All of the characters that had toys have official bios from Hasbro.
