Robot Mode Vehicle Mode Packaging (Tech Spec written by Dave Van Domelen. Visit his site.)
Motto: "It doesn't matter how fast you go unless you know where you're going."
Function: Data Analyst


While Daytonus's professional racing form is ill-suited for covert missions, he doesn't mind this at all. He'd rather remain at base to correlate all the data sent in by other Autobots. However, if comlinks are down and it's vital that a piece of information reach the front line, Daytonus can get it there and make sure the right person gets it. While his Signal Rifle can inflict impressive damage at full power, it is most often used to beam a secret message to a specific person at up to a mile away.

Toy Review:
Color Scheme:
Light orange and black, with silver accents. While I'm not usually fond of orange on Transformers, it looks good on this 'bot.
Robot Mode:
Standard fare for a Spy Changer/GoBot style Transformer. One nice thing about this one is that since the front section of his car mode is so short and aerodynamic, he doesn't have an overly large chest. In fact, his chest is small enough that his hands can actually reach BEYOND his chest! Imagine that! There's not much to say about the robot mode. If you like the car mode, chances are you like the robot mode as well.
Vehicle Mode:
A Porsche 962 (thanks Dan ;-). It's a refreshing change from what we're used to, which is always nice.
Boringly easy, as all Spy Changers/GoBots are, but this also makes for quick transforming and high play value. Simply pull down the legs, pull out the arms (and position them if desired) and fold down the hood to form the chest, and it's done. These are great starter TFs, but old kids might enjoy a more complicated toy, lest they thing all TFs are this easy.
His weapon is slim and narrow, allowing it to be mounted in a special hole on the underside when in car mode. This is great, since most of the previous designs didn't have weapon storage, and the guns are the first things to get lost.
Fresh new style of race car, bold color scheme, and secure weapon storage. I recommend this one, especially since it comes with the Spy Changer version of Side Burn

Comments: My favorite "basic" Spychanger. I like how his chest isn't disproportionately large like other SCs. But the Daytona 500 is NASCAR, not endurance cars like Daytonus. Daytonus looks more to me like a Porsche 962 than anything else.

Comments: I think this is a great toy since I have it with Sideburn...Their size makes them portable everywhere; I hope some day to get Optimus Prime.
I really love Transformers...!
