Hurray! Some good motorbike TFs at last!
ROAD ROCKET (Street Defence)
"I'm faster than the speed of light!" (No he's not.)
Although he exaggerates actual speed capabilities, this Autobot can really burn up the pavement! Always ready to hit the throttle hard and race into battle. Constantly red lines his triple-turbo engine that glows upon reaching excessive temperature parameters. Cools off by ingesting mixture of anti-freeze and oil for catalytic stabilisation. Lightsaber weapon dissolves Decepticon armour faster than ice cream melts on a summertime sidewalk.
A street thug with a reputation for instigating trouble. Once challenged an order from Megatron, but backed down after nearly having his internal wiring pulled out through his visual receptors. Has no known friends among the Decepticons. Processing circuitry slow - intelligence minimal. Considered to be a rebel without a clue by Autobot enemies. Prowls streets at night searching for victims to intimidate, harass, and eventually destroy with metal-slashing lightsaber. Easily detected by internally illuminated engine which superheats when he's angry.
What is going on with Road Rocket's arm on our right?
MASSIVE great hole in the top of the forearm.
So why's that? POart of the moulding process because that's the direction that the ball joint faces? Possibly but I could swear I've seen TFs with the open face of a limb on the opposite side to the ball joint hole.
The right arm has what looks like a panel of moulded detail inserted into it's hole - should there have been a similar insert panel here?
