Character Card Information

  • Autobot Gunner
  • Function: Gunner

Despite his strength and blazing speed, Bluestreak is not a warrior by nature. His incessant, tedious, long speeches sometimes bore those around him but also smooth over tense situations. This penchant of his is intended to cover his mental scars from past battles. Developments on Bluestreak's body, which was preceded by the rest of the BT numbers, progressed beyond those who came before him, but the EDC Inspection Bureau was concerned about his mental capacity, so his consignment to actual combat was temporarily deferred. However, he proved his abilities by undergoing rigorous simulations and oral exams, achieving a magnificent comeback to the line of battle.
