    Just read the bios. I love reading those. Brings back memories of reading the original Tech Spec bios and the Transformers Universe profile comics. :D 

    I wish the toys nowadays had bios written like that.

    Is it just me or does Hubcap's bio read like Pat Lee? "Hub Cap has everybody's friendship but nobody's trust. He is affable, witty, generous, even charming -- it is no wonder that his fellow Autobots find him such pleasant company. But he's also a con artist. He is likely to enthusiastically accept some work detail one moment and then try to sucker someone else into doing it the next. Or he might try to smooth talk a comrade into trading his weapon for an inferior one. Hub Cap is surprisingly effective at his scams. Perhaps it's the smiling, sincere way he talks or perhaps it's because he looks small and unthreatening. Whatever the case, Hub Cap is living proof of the old Cybertronian adage, "You can't tell an Autobot by it's finish.""

    When??

    If your talking about when Tpypticon attacked the Ark your mistaken.

    Thats clearly Bumblebee.

    And yes, BB was also at Autobot city, its an animation error.

    This is a treasure-trove for SPECS nerds like me!! :D 

    I like the fresh details this brings to the table, that helps flesh out characters we only had a vague notion of before...

    SWERVE
    - highly damage resistant (makes sense for a metallurgist I guess)
    - has mini-welders and torches in his hands... basically a portable foundry. Cool!
    - is often in really bad shape due to accrued damage

    HUBCAP
    - even sleazier and less trustworthy than we already thought he was!

    VENOM
    - paranoid and dangerous... he's like a Decepticon Stalin! :) 
    - his poison stinger sounds pretty damn dangerous!

    CHOP SHOP
    - can lift 30 TONS in tiny insect mode!!!
    - not only impressive but also hilarious, since it would appear as though large objects are just walking themselves away! :lol 

    RANSACK
    - hey... those bug-legs on his arms SPIN LIKE BUZZSAWS?? How awesome is that?? :D 

    Is this the first time that it's been confirmed that Insecticons can operate in bug mode at large OR small sizes? I think that before now, Ratbat was the only one mentioned to have capabilities like that.

    Not a lot of new insights on Roadbuster... too bad Whirl is currently lost. I'd like to see that one.
