    I was going thru my old toys down in my basement and I found a transformer and I can't remember who he is for the life of me. I've gone thur the gallery of G1 toys five times and never saw it.

    The best I can describe him is some what like G1 Hot Rod. His car mode is very similar to Hot Rod's , slim and sleek ,low to the ground and a spoiler on the back but it's is dinky and lite Blue. The body of the car is red and has flames decals going up the side with silver trim.

    His robot mode has the legs bonded together by a plastic bar. His head was almost like jazz a black helmet with a white face.


    One key feature that I can remember is he came with a smaller robot that turn into a gun by just folding it's legs up and over its own shoulders.

    If I had a camera I would more than happy to post pics, but alas I don't. If anyone knows or can help thanks.

    I want to say Pointblank, but my gut tells me it's probably Starscream.

    THANK YOU ALL!!! That is him.

    I use to just call him Hot Rod. Being we was a poor family coming up we did the best with what we had.


    Which year was he made and is he a specific type like a target master? There was another Autobot that was similar to him but bulky and came with a smaller robot that also flipped it's legs over it's shoulders to become a gun.

    Don't sweat it man, he was always one of my favorites. He's a cool little toy.

    And I think the other guy you're thinking of may be Crosshairs.

    hey guys? I'm not sure it's point blank at all. If you want my honest opinion, I think it might actually be point blank instead of point blank. However It is still possible that it isn't pointblank at all, but is instead pointblank. I dunno, just my 2 cents. On another note, this post is about as redundant and repetitive as most of the first page. post count +1.

    Should I be scared that I knew which one it was without even owning the figure or looking it up anywhere? I never wanted to hit that level of geekdom...
