Takara Tomy United EX Racemaster Back Story Translated

Postby El Duque » Sun Oct 21, 2012 9:11 am

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Our fellow Transformers enthusiast over on the Allspark have provided a translation Takara Tomy United EX Racemaster's back story. See how he fits into the United EX story below:


The young Autobot Racemaster was in the middle of transporting his assigned drones. Despite the incredible speed with which he had been imbued, he had little choice but to obey the speed limit of Earth to the letter of the law.

“Choppermaster, what could’ve happened to you? Did you get caught in a batalla that put you in stasis?" To an Autobot born with a mental acuity that outpaced his current movement speed many times over, this regulated drive seemed nothing more than a dull errand. As his processor speed alone continued to rise, the transport trailers that flanked him appeared to drift in slow motion.

“Wait… If the Decepticons did get their hands on the drones, that means I’m about to…!"
Suddenly, as if to confirm Racemaster’s suspicions, his sensors lit up and a hail of missiles rained down around him.
“Your little drive ends here, boy. You may choose between surrendering the drones, or facing certain destruction at my hands!"
As Combatmaster emerged from behind the girder of a bridge, Racemaster observed the four drones stationed atop buildings around the highway, each with their weapons pointed squarely towards him.
“Resist if you like… but I believe the drones you transport are still unequipped. Do you really intend to fight me barehanded?" Combatmaster inquired smugly.

Hearing Combatmaster’s challenge, a bold grin flashed onto Racemaster’s face.
“You must’ve put a lot of effort into positioning your ambush just right. I see you’ve got a lot of confidence in your tactics… But I’ve still got the ultimate weapon on my side!"

No sooner had Racemaster spoken these words than his drones burst out from their trailers, moving in unison with him as they tore off with blinding speed. Thought and decision in a split-second. The sheer speed of Racemaster’s calm mind was truly his greatest weapon.

“Going at it head-on isn’t the only way to fight, hombre! This is what we Earthlings call a brave retreat!"
Combatmaster made haste to combine with his drones, but the five targets nimbly dodged his all-out assault, soon disappearing from view.

In case anybody wonders who Race Master is, look no further than his Drone names. All mean basically the same thing, and there is a name that does so as well: Rapido
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

United EX related.

From The Allspark:
he names and functions for the final wave of United EX have been made public. Fans will definitely see a few recognizable names:

Buildmaster
Function: Demolitions Reserve
Drones: Decimator, Annhilator, Dominator, Eradicator

Assaultmaster
Function: Special Assault
Drones: Sentinel, Zeta, Alpha, Guardian

Tankmaster
Function: Assassin
Targetmaster: Wheezel

Marinemaster
Function: Ocean Defense
Targetmaster: Rotorbolt


I am STOKED by the names of Assaultmaster's drones. I'm dying to know who he is. I was iffy at first, but now I'm liking the idea of him being a redeemed Car Robots Black Convoy what with drone names like that. Image

Sentinel Prime, Zeta Prime, Alpha Prime aka Primon and Guardian Prime. Has to be Nemesis Prime, not reformed tho :lol: As for Buildmaster... Devastator maybe? He appeared combined in an Action Master body. Marine Master has to be Boater aka Seawatch, his cartoon colors match perfectly.

Assaultmaster is an Autobot. And the only Nemesis Primes in JG1 fiction are the Binaltech version and the Alternity version, but that's a different timeline. CR Black Convoy, however, exists within the main cartoon timeline, and take away Gigatron's reprogramming and he'd be good again. ;)

OR Manta Ray, given the "Rotor" in "Rotorbolt". ;)

Boater makes more sense, deco-wise, as Rotorbolt either refers to the BM Obsidian repaint, or more likely is the Empty from the Marvel comics

And it occurred to me that Assaultmaster would be really well played if it was Black Convoy, as the Drones have Combatron analogs in some shape or form:

Spy Plane: Shuttler
Assault Vehicle: Greejeber
Missile Carrier: Dangar (this one's a stretch...)
Attack Helicopter: Hepter.

Obsidian wasn't redecoed in Robotbolt. :???:

Though, Manta Ray has the same altmode as Marinemaster, and these are supposed to be mostly obscure characters, whereas Boater got decent screentime in Victory.

Boater's still a maybe too, but Rapido opens the door to more G2 possibilities, especially with what Hydra wrote about him in his notes. ;)

Guess we'll have to wait and see. :) I know Hydra can be sneaky with his homework at times. I'm already anticipating the Prime Frenzy/Rumble thing. :lol:

Yeah, and the color schemes don't always match as are the cases with Blaze Master/Choppermaster and Onslaught/Combatmaster. ;)
