    Was he a unique Decepticon, or what it a figure of speech Starscream used?

    In the eps Ive seen, besides Megs and Starscream, we have Soundwave, Breakdown, Dead End, and Arachnid. Are there any other unique Decepticons I missed?

    And is that Laserbeak on Soundwaves chest? Or a drone of some sort, havent seen all of the eps and not sure if he was ever mentioned by name.

    Makeshift was the name of the shapeshifter 'Con. Seems to be a unique individual, rather than a Vehicon modified by Soundwave.

    Correction. Also you forgot Skyquake.

    Never identified in the show, though it was apparently referred to as Laserbeak at Botcon 2011.

    Makeshift, I believe, is pronounced Plot Device.

    So how many unique Autobots have we seen?
    Prime, Bulkhead, BB, Arcee, Ratchet, Tailgate, Cliffjumper, Wheeljack. Any others?

    No, you've covered them all in one clean sweep. :(  The cast is kind of small when you read it out like that.

    Makeshift was his name. His ability was copying other robot forms. His shadow that we saw was completely different in shape and design to any other character we saw in the show so far.

    Yep, formally known as "Shifters", descendants of Amalgamous Prime.

    I vote they maybe add a few more characters to make it feel a bit more epic as the seasons progress but still keep the cast quite small but really varied so each character has enough screen time to develop and is important, unique and distinct so we don't end up having whole load of catch phrase muttering filler characters with g1 names

    Who according to the Exiles novel, can't stay in one form for too long... odd.

    I liked Makeshift's design and power; shame he's Cliffjumper-dead.

    And it was threatening. With his beady white eyes and drill shoulders.

    Haven't read Exiles yet, but I don't see a conflict with that bit of info. If we assume Soundwaves playback of Bulkhead and Wheeljacks conversation was in real-time, then Makeshift was in disguise for a day at most. It's not like he was disguised as Wheeljack for months on end.

    I haven't read Exiles yet, but is it stated to be a limitation on all Shifters that they can only stay changed for so long? (e.g. Animorphs two-hour limit) Or is it more of an individual skill thing?

    If it's the latter then Makeshift could just have gotten so good at it he can stay changed for longer times.


    In fact now that I think about it Starscream said Makeshift can only keep up appearances for so long. I had only taken that to mean it's only so long until he slips up and the Autobots catch on, but what if it were more than that and he also meant that Makeshift can only stay disguised for so long?

    You know, that's actually a good point, I also had assumed it was Starscream fearing 'em to slip up.

    Knock Out looks like Dead End...Same color scheme, same narcisscism, similar car modes. Hes Metta World Peace to Dead Ends Ron Artest. Hes the baddest motherfucker on the show.
