    Got this from the official magazine. Didn´t knew most of it.....

    Optimus Prime


    Hight

    28 ft


    Robot-mode

    Prime is equipped with a special spiral muscular system which strengthens his upper body and base, and gives him more power than any other Transformer.

    An admixture of cobalt makes him high-grade proof over striking power or explosives.

    His spark, his life essence, is a source of enormous energy, compressed to a core of cleavable mass.

    In robot-mode Prime has every palce or battlefield in sight through his remote-controlled drones.


    Vehicle-mode

    On earth Prime transforms into a 3-axis semi-truck with a 625 kW engine and a top speed of 249 m/ph.

    In vehicle-mode he is equipped with 39 independent canons and remote-controlled projectiles on the roof.

    His special engine recycles used fuel which enlarges his reach.

    Reserve-energycells on each side can be activated to increase more speed.


    Weapons

    Prime´s main-weapon is a lasergun. The gun has a reservoir of single warheads which are charged with plutonium.

    Each has a maximum reach of 60 m/ph and can hold an explosive-amount of up to 1350 kilogram.

    The lasergun has a selfloader which makes it possible to strew the fire.

    Furthermore Optimus Prime has rapid guns which ensure a distinctive "firewall"-effect.




    Ratchet


    Hight

    19.7 ft


    Weight

    6.7 t


    Top speed

    230 m/ph


    Power stange

    4/10


    Staying power

    4/10


    Skill

    3/10


    Ratchet is strong, but not that fast. With his heavy armor he gets everywhere, but sometimes not as fast as the others.

    His cross-country wheels, which are molded in shape, take him everywhere.

    Ratchet carries a lot of extra systems and spare parts with him to cure the wounded in battle. But he can also use them for himself.


    Weapons

    Ratchet´s knife was made out of a rare alloy called Tyrrenium and can cut everything - even metal.
    Perfect for amputations on the battlefield but also for hand-to-hand combat.




    Barricade


    Height

    16.4 ft


    Weight

    2.2 t


    Top speed

    299.5 m/ph


    Power stage

    3/10


    Staying power

    4/10


    Skill

    5/10


    Barricades metal-body gets special resistance through an extreme thick metal alloy which is twice as strong as a normal cybertonian armor.

    This makes him proof of impacts from outside and he can stand temperatures up to 1832 Fahrenheit.

    He can switch between different visuals (analytic, chemical, tactical and elementary). This helps him to see weakenings in the defence of his enemies.

    Special sensors allow him the immediate analysis and a direct reaction.


    Weapons

    Barricade´s blades can convert into a deadly weapon.
    They can be hold in the hand or can be thrown to a reach up to 44 yards.




    So, that´s all. :D

    Interesting read, but I hope the numerous typos aren't part of the magazine...

    They should've done Megatron too.

    Teehee!! But I don´t know if everything is correct. Warheads for example. That´s the only word that comes up for the translated word.

    Monkey-Hands, is the original Deutsch available somewhere? You could get a second (or third) opinion (not that I know how to translate "warheads" and "plasma laser rifle" in German). Just curious.

    Looks like the junk in the Simon Furman Movie guide book. It's a kids book, so thinking on it any more than an 11 year old will leave the average person quite dissapointed.

    Hey, guy, did you take a second to look at his location? He's from GERMANY. And I bet he speaks English much, much better than you speak German.

    But congratulations, nothing makes your e-penis bigger than calling out non-native speaker's grammatical errors.

    Oh, and by the way, Grammar Ninja--'didnt' is supposed to have an apostrophe, as in 'didn't,' a contraction of 'did' and 'not.' See, that'd be why you don't mock other poster's typos.

    I'll buy it. I don't know if anyone has ever read any Bolo stories, but they're about these incredibly advanced tanks in the future. Their main cannon is called a Hellbore, and to fire it detonates nuclear warheads in its chamber. The explosion is what powers the shot. Maybe Prime uses something similar.

    Or maybe the writer was just too lazy to write anything that would make real sense.

    So the warhead translation is correct then I guess? But you may be right cause I do think too that a lasergun should fire laserbeams instead of of plutonium warheads.
    But who knows. :D
