Four More Transformer Bios

More bios for Deluxe class toys from Transformers 2 toy line, this time Cannon Bumblebee, Interrogator Barricade (still not proven in movie), and Smokescreen, the repaint of Jazz that is unlikely in the movie. Images from TFW2005. In addition, an eBay auction provides pictures of Deluxe Mudflap in package and first look at his bio. Thanks to DeceptiFreak for the link.

Deluxe Interrogator Barricade
Repaired and retrofitted after the Battle of Mission City, Barricade elected to remain on Earth while Starscream returned to Cybertron. He has devoted his time on Earth gathering intelligence for the inevitable rise of the Decepticons. He stalks and captures important humans, then scans, interrogates and disposes of his captives using the highly sensitive proves built into his vehicle mode.
Deluxe Cannon Bumblebee Bio
After the Battle of Mission City, and the discovery of new Decepticons on Earth, Bumblebee decided to upgrade as many of his systems as he could. With the help of Autobot Ratchet, he added some human missile launchers to his arsenal, and modified his vehicle mode to make his weapons accessible. He was caught off-gaurd too many times the Decepticons. Now when they come around he'll be ready.
Deluxe Smokescreen
According to Smokescreen, the only good Decepticon is a totally confused one. He does his best to make sure that the Decepticons never know what his teammates are up to. He's perfected the art of creating diversions, using traps, holograms, and strategically placed explosives. When all else fails, he uses himself as bait, often racing right through a group of enemy robots to distract them.
Deluxe Mudflap
Young but eager, Mudflap has wanted to be a full-fledged warrior under the command of Optimus Prime for as long as he can remember. He and his twin brother Autobot Skids traveled for years to Earth, just in the hopes of joining up with their idol. Being on Earth with Optimus Prime and the other heroes of the Great War is a dream come true.

  1. SO, Mudflap's personality is revealed. A young bot who has always dreamed to work as a member of Autobot Supreme Leader's team. And about Skids's personality, Skids thinks he is a genius though he's not. I have always thought that what Mudflap would think about his brother's stupid thoeries and what Skids would think about his brother's hyperactivity.

  2. Didnt Smokescreen die on Mars?

  3. Come on... Smokescreen looks EXACTLY like Jazz. That's just cheap. Couldn't they've changed his head at least?
    Psshh... Disappointing.

    Barricade will probably be in the movie though, and that's nice. A stand-off between him and Bumblebee would be cool.

  4. ^ dont forget the toys of Swindle & Overcast & a few other Decepticons have those stupid 1 eyed looking faces.

    Just dumb.

  5. Yes, Punch. Smokescreen, Cosmos, Camshaft and Air Raid dided in Mars. Cliffjumper was wounded, but it's unconfirmed that died he or not. Swindle, Overcast, Incinerator, Dead End, Fracture and other Decepticons sent by Soundwave were killed in Alliance comic.

  6. ^ Cosmos didnt die, mate. He was stationed in space, overlooking Mars.

    Yeah Cliffjumper is unconfirmed, huh?

    I was gutted for Air Raid. Got 1 potential Aerialbot there...

  9. Yeah smokescreen does look alot like jazz... But he def doesnt have the same mentality as him. I think Mudflap and Skids are gonna suprise some people in this move. And Bumblebee already whooped Barricade in the last movie it just didnt show much details. It ticked me off when he got his legs blew off in the first one that pic of him poppin that knee to i guess it was rampage was awesome!! I love his battlemask alot more then Primes...

  10. Buying Mudflap for sure. Need me a new Barricade so I'll pick that up. I'm going for the preview Bumblebee over the cannon one and I might just skip Smokescreen altogether. I'm pretty happy with my Premium Jazz figure and I've never found Smokescreen interesting, cept for that one story in the Marvel UK comics with him and Inferno where Inferno throws Smokescreen out of the spaceship and kamikazes it into some base I can't remember exactly what.

  11. you idiots....smokescreen is a jazz repaint...he isn't a proper new character that's gonna be in the movie.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Who's been saying Smokescreen is in the film? People just been saying he was in the movie comics is all.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Why would Bumblebee want to be retrofitted with weapons from Ratchet? Wouldn't he ask Ironhide, the weapons specialist? :P lol

    Unless Ratchet actually fixed them on...Something that Ironhide maybe can't do?

  14. from bumblebee bio

    "He was caught off-gaurd too many times the Decepticons."

    sounds like the crappy economy is taking its toll on the editing department.

  15. Smokescreen is so a Jazz repaint.
    Well he looked exactly like Jazz painted in red in Transformers Reign of Starscream.
    Well, this was expected.
    Not disappointed with Bumblebee or Skids though.
    But i still think they shud have brought back Blackout or Brawl instead of Barricade.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Brawl sucked. I agree with you on blackout, but brawl? come on

    ReplyDelete
  17. brawl should/could have been cool. but all they had him do was stand in the same spot and get shot at.

    ReplyDelete
  18. @ ADG

    Blackout is back.

    ReplyDelete
  19. We already know that, Mcat.

  20. I just had a great idea for an intro scene for Skids and Mudflap.

    Ok so after they get their Beat & Trax modes, they could get to meet Prime face-to-face for the first time. Then they would be like "OMFG it's Optimus Prime!" and dog pile him. That would be seriously funny, but that would have to be the only outrageous moment. The rest of the humor couldn't be that silly.

    Brawl wasn't that great of a character mainly because of lack of both screentime and character development. He was more of a Decepticon foot soldier than a character in the 2007. They could bring him back and do a better job introducing him.

    ANyways, I like 2007 Barricade better, the Deluxe Bumblebee looks better, I might still get Mudflap because of the better transformation than the FAB version but overall, the FAB Mudflap is better looking. I've never had an interest in Smokescreen and didn't he die in The Reign of Starscream?

  21. to ADG, with regards to your last sentence, i felt bringing back Barricade would definitely benefit those who only watched the movie for TF1 as to his no show in Mission City and why.

    Seeing that Blackout got revived, it's also possible for Brawl to be revived, UNLESS the movie makers use Brawl as the source of spare parts cannibalised for Megs' revival (ie the tank track legs).

    Also i hope the movie makers explained who were the decepticons that fixed up megs, blackout and scorponok, otherwise it would be unfair that the Autobots always had to depend on Ratchet for his repair and recovery skills while the decepticons always appear full health without any mention who did the repairs...

  22. The Doctor? And maybe a little power boost from the AllSpark

    Doesnt the name Constructicons kinda gave the clue away, Mr. Nick? ^___^

  24. Brawl doesn't suck and Smokescreen isn't a bad looking figure just because he's a repaint of Jazz.
