"Rad is a two-fisted 'bot of science. Equally at home on the battlefield and in the laboratory, Rad's inherent level-headedness keeps his quick-tempered partner Lionizer from atomizing everything in their path. It also makes him incredibly popular amongst his teammates because of his sheer amount of skill, though he never lets it get to his head, nor does he let those few who hate him for his skills get him down. Rad was present when Optimus Prime asked a group of Autobots (including Jazz, Over-Run, Prowl, Sprocket, and Wheeljack) if they were willing to join him in giving up the power of transformation to become "stronger, faster, and more alive". Rad was only behind Jazz in volunteering, enthusiastically yelling at Prime to count him in. Rad was present on Garrus-9 when Banzai-Tron and his Decepticon Secret Service bombarded the penitentiary. It is unknown if Rad survived the explosion in which he and Jackpot were caught" Until now! Rad has survived, although sevearly damaged in the explosion, his body had to be nearly completely reconstructed, returning him to his original transformers state! His friend Jackpot, wasn't so lucky however. Now fully restored, Rad returns to the front lines, vowing to avenge his fallen friend! I used Cybertron Smokescreen for this one. Which is appropriate because of this: "According to deco artist Joe Kyde, the deluxe Smokescreen figure in the Cybertron toyline is intended as more of an homage to Rad than the original Smokescreen himself.
