THIS BLOG TO STRICTLY DEVOTED TO MY G.I.JOE/TRANSFORMERS COLLECTION. ALL TRANSFORMERS ARE AS CLOSE TO THE G.I.JOE SCALE AS POSSIBLE, SOME EXCEPTIONS HAVE BEEN MADE. IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COMMENT.
The terror of the deep. If he's not stealing sunken treasure or ancient artifacts, he amuses himself by smashing holes in G.I.JOE submarines and Navel ships. So strong underwater that he can wrestle a whale to a standstill. Inner robot convers to metal-rending crab creature equipped with blaster rifle in secondary claw fires disrupter particles, temporarily paralyzing his unsuspecting prey.
Once the threat of a COBRA/DECEPTICON alliance became known, former N.E.S.T. Agents Spike & WHEELIE became a important part of the G.I.JOE/AUTOBOT team. Together they were able to provide intelligence on the DECEPTICONS and continue to help develop information on COBRA. Working along side G.I.JOE and the AUTOBOTS, through a number of TOP SECRET and COVERT missions. Their mission will continue til all are one.
SIDEWAYS is a psychological casualty of the Cybertronian Civil War. In hope of escaping the violence of his home world, SIDEWAYS found an abandoned SPACE BRIDGE. With the help of two lost NEBULANS named CROSSWISE and ROOK, they were able to get it operational and they beamed themselves to Earth. SIDEWAYS looks forward to a peaceful new start. If only he knew what lays ahead of him.
After witnessing the COBRA/DECEPTICON tyranny, CROSSWISE is driven to do the right thing. CROSSWISE was compelled to take any opportunity stand against evil, even if that means using his new friend SIDEWAYS. CROSSWISE is a very cool and aloof. Is very aware of mission timetables and has a great memory. A robot of few word, reveals little of himself to others.
ROOK has two motivations unnecessary destruction and personal gain, the COBRA/DECEPTICONS alliance gives ROOK the opportunity to do just that. ROOK cares nothing for those around him, so if he has to hurt someone to get what he wants he thinks nothing of it. Due to immense fear a rampant paranoia causes ROOK to glitch. Can be fast and silent for very brief moments. Often viewed as sneaky. A robot of few words, reveals little of his true self to others.
"In my business, there are no friends, only suspects."
While in stasis CROSSWISE merges with SIDEWAYS and becomes AUTOBOT spy PUNCH. PUNCH is often found with G.I.JOE CHUCKLES infiltrating COBRA fronts like A.R.B.CO. and EXTENSIVE ENTERPRISES. CHUCKLES and PUNCH attempt to find out whatever they can about the COBRA/DECEPTICON alliance. After each mission Punch returns to SIDEWAYS stasis chamber, were SIDEWAYS is often unsettled by his physical fatigue.
"Why do I meddle with you, you ask? It's because I enjoy it."
SIDEWAYS doesn't trust ROOK. Unknown to SIDEWAYS, SIDEWAYS is prone to sneak attacks by ROOK. Once SIDEWAYS is rendered unconscious, ROOK will merge with SIDEWAYS and become COUNTERPUNCH. COUNTERPUNCH is often found working with ZARANA from the DREADNOKS. Both masters of disguise, the COBRA/DECEPTICON Alliance put them to good use. COUNTERPUNCH and ZARANA are both very effective and make short work of their missions. SIDEWAYS will often wake up in strange places and has diagnosed himself with what humans would call blackouts.
When CROSSWISE and ROOK combine they become BISHOP. BISHOP and SIDEWAYS work together as a team to avoid being discovered. BISHOP is in constant conflict with himself. The balance of the dark and light side is an ongoing battle. Only when good and evil are dependent on each other is BISHOP in perfect synchronization. All of their survival depends on it.
A selfish, obnoxious master of destruction. Does everything for himself. Refuses to follow orders. Which DREADNOK GWAWGAHYDE perfect match. Horns on outer shell equipped with sonar distorters that disrupt the flow of cerebral impulses and rupture enemy circuitry. Also equipped with armored hide on outer shell. In robot Mode, armed with programmable explosive shell buster cannon. Range: 6 miles.
Both Chainclaw and G.I.JOE SNOW JOB are known as ferocious warrior. CHAINCLAW is usually too busy worrying to fight. Always afraid his outer shell won't unlock, that his fuel might be low, that his joints are rusting or almost anything imaginable. Sometimes appears inoperative because he worries himself to a standstill. Along with his savage teeth and ferocious fangs, his most devastating weapons include a quick-firing robotic bat, which features sonar sensors to detect enemies and alert CHAINCLAW for combat at all times--and at all costs!
"A cunning smile is more devastating than the fiercest weapon."
Due to his ability to commit abominable acts with unrelenting glee, CARNIVAC was selected by MEGATRON and COBRA COMMANDER to track down and eliminate SNAKE-EYES from the G.I.JOE team. TIMBER being SNAKE-EYES closest companion, CARNIVAC's plan is to simply replace TIMBER and take out SNAKE-EYES. CARNIVAC is the perfect DECEPTICON for the job.
Has a habit of grinding his teeth before he strikes -- annoying his friends and tipping off his enemies. COBRA CROC MASTER was almost one of SKULLCRUNCHERS victims, but thanks to SKULLCRUCHERS teeth grinding CROC MASTER had plenty of warning. Together they enjoy giving the AOTOBOTS and G.I.JOE teams a good tail lashing. In robot Mode, uses softening ray gun -- gives metal the consistency of rubber, making his enemies easier to chew when he reverts to alligator Mode.
DECEPTICON DESERT WARFARE
SCORPONOK is barely what the other DECEPTICONS would even call alive. His core programming is only a tiny bit more complex that pure instinct, which workout just fine for COBRA DESERT SCORPION. In most cases, SCORPONOK acts almost entirely as an animal. He never speaks, and lives only to hunt and destroy. Unlike most of his fellow robots, he prefers his alternate mode with it's energized stinger and drill-claws to his robot mode. Capable of burrowing through solid earth at nearly eighty miles per hour, he can be a terrifying opponent as he springs suddenly upon his target in a shower of dirt from the ground.
SCORPONOK IS FROM THE REVENGE OF THE FALLEN TRANSFORMERS MOVIE LINE. HE WAS CHOSEN TO GO WITH DESERT SCORPION.
DESERT SCORPION IS A G.I.JOE COLLECTORS CLUB EXCLUSIVE.
PERSONALLY I THINK THE TRANSFORMER UPGRADE WAS A GOOD CALL.
