Jetfire – Autobot

transformers 2 jetfire Transformers Complete Movie Character Guide

Description: Jetfire is a very old and very wise and once served the Prime Fallen as a Decepticon warrior – until the Fallen left him on Earth to die. Jetfire then switched his allegiances to the Autobots and fell into a deep stasis mode – coming out only once to get a new alternate form of a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird spy plane. He may look old and feeble but make no mistake – Jetfire can still scrap with the best of them.

Jolt – Autobot

Description: Jolt is one of the younger Autobots who came to Earth seeking a new home. He is part stuck-up snob and part troublemaker and all about fighting Decepticons. His energy-saving mindset is why he chose the Chevy Volt as his alternate form and he gives his enemies quite the shock with his two electro-whips.

Microcons/Reedman – Decepticon

Description: Microcons are the smallest of the Decepticons – travelling in large groups as tiny individual robots infiltrating even the tightest of spaces. When threatened however they all combine to form Reedman – a Decepticon so flat and razor thin that he appears almost invisible when viewed from certain angles.

Optimus Prime (JetPower) – Autobot

Description: Optimus Prime was already an extreme butt-kicker but sometimes even he needs some assistance. That assistance comes in the form of parts supplied to him from the dying Jetfire. The temporary upgrades include using Jetfire’s massive engines on his back giving the the ability for short bursts of flight (they can also be used as energy cannons), a plasma cannon on his arm, the addition of a machine gun and  sword.

The Primes

Description: There were seven original Primes created by the energy of the All Spark who were the first rulers of Cybertron but one of their own – the Fallen – betrayed them. They sacrificed themselves to hide the The Matrix of Leadership from the Fallen to keep him from destroying the planet Earth.

Protoform – Autobot/Decepticon

Description: Protoforms are the very basic forms all Transformers start off as until given life energy from the All Spark. It is also the form all Transformers use while travelling through space as it is nearly indestructible.

Ravage – Decepticon

Description: Ravage is on of Soundwave’s “pets” and vaguely resembles the Earth form of a cat. He can carry Microcons in his mouth and is equipped with set of razor sharp teeth, spines down his back and an additional claw on the tip of his tail.

Sideswipe – Autobot

Description: Sideswipe is a fierce fighter for the Autobots and has been since he day he was created. He employs a variety of weapons including dual blasters in his arms and cannons on his back but his favorite weapons are the shiny blades he uses to slice and dice his Decepticon enemies. He alternate mode is a silver Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Concept car.

Sideways – Decepticon

Description: Sideways is a coward plain and simple choosing to hide with allies bigger and stronger than himself for protection instead of fighting the Autobots. He would rather flee combat than fight them head on. While on Earth he hides in the shadow of Demolisher hoping to avoid confrontation altogether. His alternate mode is a silver Audi R8.

Soundwave – Decepticon

Description: Soundwave is the chief communications and intelligence officer for the Decepticons and is also Megatron’s most loyal servant. There isn’t a communication or electronic device he can’t hack and his primary mode is in the form of satellite orbiting above Earth. He rarely is ever is involved in direct combat but not only spies on the Autobots but his own Decepticons as well, reporting any disloyal behavior directly to Megatron. Ravage and Laserbeak are considered to be his minions.

The Doctor – Decepticon

Description: The Doctor is the lead scientist and medic for the Decpeticons carrying out torturous, cruel and sadistic experiments and interrogations on his subjects. His alternate mode is a a microscope though he mainly carries out his activities in robot mode and allows the Insecticons to probe the minds of his unfortunate “patients”.

The Fallen – Decepticon

Description: The Fallen was one of the original Seven Primes but he developed a thirst for power and a callous attitude for other living beings besides himself. He tried to destroy planet Earth with the Solar Harvester (a machine that produces energon from the power of the Sun) which went against the Primes main rule – “Never destroy a planet with life.” For his defiant actions, the Primes banished him to deep space where he remained until Megatron brought him back to Earth. He has the ability to “warp” short distances and impales his enemies with a long Cybertronian spear.

The Twins

Mudflap and Skids are twin robot brothers who bicker constantly. Mudflap is the hyperactive one while Skids considers himself the calmer and smarter of the two – though that isn’t saying much. They are loyal Autobots who aren’t afraid of a scrap with any Decepticon and take on Devastator by themselves. They do have the ability to combine into a single robot, starting off as a pink and white ice cream truck, though later Mudflap’s alternate mode is a Chevrolet Trax and Skids is a Chevrolet Beat. They are armed with standard plasma cannons and machine guns.

  1. Please revive Wheeljack with his G1 look and let him take part in battle. Claim that Perceptor revive him. I’d like Cliffjumper, Brawn, Prowl and Cosmos to pit against the Decepticons Thundercracker, Skywarp, Astrotrain and Blitzwing. This time show Dinobots and Sky Lynx against Predacons (now including the bad comedians Apeface and Headstrong) and Blackarachnia and the Insecticons.

  2. Big screwup introducing brawl as devestator in first movie.. Also,,the 2nd movie was way better than the third… And please don’t use dinobots,insecticons,or destructicons .. They are lame.. I wud go old school.. I wud show something with energon or maybe the ninjabot that was made by humans that the decepticons stole and used against the autobots.. Was it nightingale??.. Also.. I liked Soundwave original voice way better… Peace

  3. Great job on the site!!! I wanted to say that the fallen also has the telekinesis power and I’m pretty sure shockwave turned into an ugly purple colored gun originally.. At least I think it was him.. Again,, great job on the site.!!!

  4. please add cliffjumper,inferno,wheeljack,and Prowl. Thanks ^^

  5. Does anyone remember the old transformers movie? it was supposed to be set in 2005 and I always wanted Hotrod to be my car when I grew up. What about Unicron ? the planet transformer who ate everything and turned megatron into galvatron ? Sick !

  6. Those weren’t Insecticons that Scalpel had sent through Sam’s mouth and nostrils. Those were simply scrap drones, while the REAL Insecticons were the actual tiny, robotic insects (like the one Sam decapitated in Egypt when he and Mikaela were hiding from the Decepticons).

    • They were both insecticons , most insecticons are scrap drones.

  7. Also, the pictures are switched up from Crankcase and Crowbar.

  8. The picture you posted for grindor was the protoform rampage at that part grindor was well and truly dead (Optimus riped his face apart)

  9. Why does this guy get ripped apart?

  10. There is going to be Transformers 5 :)
