Function: Vehicon Mobile Infantry
Motto: "Run 'em down!"

The most maneuverable of the land-based Vehicons, each Motorcycle Drone is a lethal adversary to all Maximals. Commanded by Vehicon general Thrust, each Motorcycle Drone is capable of extreme speeds and amazing handling. Outfitted with enormous amounts of firepower - weapons capabilities include firing energy pulses by spinning front tire while popping a wheelie. In robot mode, one arm functions as a rapid-fire energy pulse weapon, the other a grappling hook.

Toy Review 
Color Scheme:
A very nice combination of gray, red, and yellow, with some black parts (tires! ;-). He also has translucent yellow claws/pincers for his hands, and his projectiles are the same kind of plastic. The color scheme works very well in all modes.
Robot Mode:
He looks almost exactly like the show in his unicycle robot mode. His wheel can split much like the deluxe Thrust toy, which makes him able to stand on his own, but his legs are articulated, so posing is nigh impossible. Even though he has to be held to stand in robot mode (with a wheel instead of feet), that simply makes for show accurate play value. It's a lot more fun to zoom him around on a wheel than it is to make him waddle on his feet. His robot head is a dead ringer for the show as well. My main complaint is that his arms are too big. He's got serious Popeye syndrome, and the flaming projectile things only make it worse. In fact, with his projectiles inserted in the arms, he can use them as crutches in robot mode so that he can stand up.
Vehicle Mode:
Again, spot on accurate to the show. Just look at the pics. It's really sweet. His enormous arms do detract a little from this mode, but not as much as in robot mode.
Rated between Basic and Intermediate, I'd have to agree. Good thing the instructions on the back are accurate. Pay attention to the instructions, and there are no problems.
One arm can fire a projectile by pressing the spark crystal to trigger it. It also has this silly mechanism that opens the sides of his arm when you insert the projectile. When the projectile is fired, the panels close... or are supposed to. See the "Blow it!" picture above to see how this doesn't work so well. Me, I put one of the clear rubber bands around his wrist to hold the panels closed. I would rather that feature didn't exist, and the arms made a little smaller.
Sweet show accuracy, but the arms are a little oversized.
If you look at the tech spec, you'll notice that it looks different that my pics. That's because the idiot who photographed the toy didn't transform it right. It's so completely mis-transformed that I'm not going to list all the ways it's wrong. It's just plain wrong. As I said earlier, the instructions are very good. As long as you don't look at the screwed up pic on the package, and follow the instructions exclusively, you'll have a nice looking toy.
