Sideswipe and Rampage toy bios March 17th, 2009

TF08 have posted pack­ag­ing shots of the Side­swipe and Ram­page toys, includ­ing their biogra­phies. An inter­est­ing point to note is Rampage’s jack ham­mer mode — a sort of third con­fig­u­ra­tion, pos­si­ble movie appear­ance of a giant crush­ing pneu­matic drill?


The stink of diesel fumes and hot tar fol­lows Ram­page wher­ever he goes. His treads are packed with metal shards stripped from his vic­tims and the count­less scratches cov­er­ing his chas­sis are tes­ta­ment to hun­dreds of bru­tal bat­tles. He lives to pound his ene­mies into sub­mis­sion and thinks of lit­tle else. His idea of beauty is the sight of sun glis­ten­ing off the raw edges of shred­ded Auto­bot armor.


Side­swipe was built to fight. He is sleek, fast, and accom­plished in bat­tle, focus­ing on his enemy with absolute atten­tion. His blades are a shin­ing blur as he leaps through the air, twist­ing to avoid enemy fire. Con­vert­ing from vehi­cle to robot at blaz­ing speed, he uses every trick in the book to get close to his oppo­nent and put his pow­er­ful swords to work.
