Profile (Translated from the Trading Card)
Function: Intelligence Agent
Motto: "The least likely can be the most dangerous."
Profile:
Bumble is the smallest Cybertron warrior. His size however is an advantage as he's able to infiltrate where others are reluctant to go. Has exceptional vision enabling him to detect enemy sensors in hostile territory. Although he lacks the speed and strength, Bumble admires Commander Convoy and is always keen to make the effort in order to be recognised.

Motto: "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings."

Optimus Prime is the largest, strongest and wisest of all Autobots. His role is to protect all life in the fight to defeat the Decepticons. Splits into three autonomous modules: 1) Optimus Prime...the brain centre known as the commander, 2) Roller, the Autobot scout car...a spy who operates up to 1200 miles away, 3) Autobot headquarters...the combat deck equipped with a versatile mechanic/artillery robot. Injury to one module is felt by the other two.

Salvo 74 (e-Hobby Exclusive, 2004)



Profile (Translated from the Trading Card)
Function: Hunter / Seeker
Transformation: Beetle
Ability: One form of clone soldier created by the Insecticons. Their template, the psychological warfare expert Bombshell, creates them by destroying machinery with his "insecti-shells," then exposing the resulting wreckage to his Electronic Clone Beams. These Salvo units are equipped with the same abilities and weaponry as Bombshell, but haven't the intelligence to handle advanced tactics or special skills. They are therefore hardwired to invade enemy territory and bombard all equipment there en masse.
Weapons: Assault Mortar, Twin Ion Impulse Blaster, Dart Guns
