Shot Hole 73 (e-Hobby Exclusive, 2004)

Profile (Translated from the Trading Card)
Function: Invader
Transformation: Grasshopper
Ability: One form of the clone soldiers mass-produced by the Insectrons' self-replicating capability. Possesses almost no individual personality or thinking capacity, instead acting in a swarm with its identical clones. Furnished with physical abilities equal to its original template, the espionage operative Kickback, but conversely, has extremely low intelligence. Invades enemy territories in great numbers, haphazardly destroying buildings, focusing purely on consuming resources and food and carrying them off as raw materials for Energon cubes.
Weapon: Electrothermic Blast Tube

Grandstand Convertors: Alphatron

Alphatron is one of the most versatile of the Convertors because not only is he a fearsome warrior robot but also a complete force of 14 micro space-fighters. This great skill means that Alphatron can surround and entrap an enemy all on his own and then switch back to a robot to destroy them.

Masterpiece Loudpedal MP-25L

Profile (Translated from the Trading Card)
Function: Ultrasonic Engineer
Motto: ”By surpassing your agony, I achieve ecstasy.”
Uses ultrasound for a variety of tactics; although he is a soldier with great abilities, he was unfairly scored low for the Destron army. He is one of the leading musical talents in the galaxy, however his eccentricity and genius cause resentment. As the Destrons don't recognise artistic talent, his tech spec numerals do not correctly represent his true values.

44 Magnum MC-11 (Micro Change)

The 44 Magnum was the only gun robo from Takaras Micro Change line never to be released in the Transformers toy line. Originally released in 1983 in Japan, the 44 Magnum Gun Robo was a very realistic version of the Smith & Wesson / S&W Model 29 hand gun - an alternate mode possibly chosen for its association with Clint Eastwood's Dirty Harry film series.

44 Magnum also saw a release in GiGs Trasformer "Pistola Robot" line in 1984; like many of the releases in Italy it was identical to the Japanese release, however a red cap was glued to the end of the gun barrel for safety reasons.

Tankor (Generations, 2014)

Tankor is a mountain of pure destructive force. Give him an objective and it's as good as done (and quite possibly crushed, smashed, or completely demolished). The Vehicon General doesn't have much for brainpower, but his skill in battle is nearly unrivaled.
