Takara Tomy Transformers United EX-06 Buildmaster & EX-07 Assaultmaster Stories Translated

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Our fellow Transformers enthusiasts over on the Allspark have provided translations for the backstories featured on Takara Tomy's Transformers United EX-06 Buildmaster and EX-07 Assaultmaster. The stories are titled "Hope for the Next Generation" and "Unearthed Future" respectively. We've mirrored the translations below, images courtesy of Alfes 2010.

Hope for the Next Generation

The forces of the Master Class had assembled in the Autobot headquarters. They waited to be briefed on the operation to attack the Decepticon hideout that had been located thanks to Marinemaster’s information.
Standing before them was a dark figure…
“Assaultmaster… It’s the spare body for Optimus Prime, isn’t it?"
“Exactly, Airmaster. As it is, it’s nothing more than an empty shell without a spark. But if I ride inside it, I’ll be able to interface with its Energon Matrix and mobilize it for battle, just like you Transformers."
Clad in a protective exosuit designed for the interface, Major Clouder’s face showed a determined expression.
“This technology was developed by human and Autobot alike. It represents our dream and yours. I won’t let anyone twist it to their own purposes, and I’m not about to ask you to fight alone. Would you let me fight alongside you?
As the Autobots nodded the affirmative, Jetmaster put the group’s sentiment into words.
“You bet we would, Major Clouder. We trust you with our lives."
“Thank you. In that case, Autobots! Let’s transform and roll out!"

Amidst a long and vicious battle with many of his comrades sustaining damage, Assaultmaster proceeded into the cave rumored to be a Decepticon hideout.

As if being drawn in by some unseen force, Assaultmaster moved deeper and deeper into the tunnel. Strangely, Clouder could detect no trace of life from within it. Just as he began to doubt whether this “High Regent” really existed or not, a voice rang out within his mind… or more precisely, from within Assaultmaster’s body.

“I thank you, Major Clouder… or as you were known as our ally, “Doubleclouder." This sparkless body is an ideal vessel for me. Now, the true master of the future to come… is the High Regent Scrash!"
Clouder’s control of Assaultmaster was being rapidly eroded. He struggled to activate the combiner’s internal Immobilizer unit, setting it to overload.
“Now I understand what you are… But I won’t let your scheme come to pass!"
So began a battle that held in its grip the fate of a new era…

Assaultmaster
Function: Special Assault

[Prime Mode]
Strength 8 10
Intelligence 9 9
Speed 8 9
Endurance 7 10
Rank 8 8
Courage 8 8
Fireblast 5 9
Skill 8 10
Total 61 73

Assaultmaster:
A spare body for Optimus Prime constructed by the Department of Defense with the assistance of Wheeljack. Since it doesn’t contain a spark, Major Clouder pilots it manually.

Sentinel Drone:
A tank drone that launches intercontinental ballistic missiles. Transforms into an arm.

Guardian Drone:
A jet drone that can use its reconnaissance functions to hack into nearby devices. Transforms into an arm.

Alpha Drone:
A helicopter drone invisible to enemy radar. Transforms into a leg.

Zeta Drone:
A truck drone that fires electromagnetic pulse artillery. Transforms into a leg.

Assaultmaster Prime Mode:
By tapping into the energy reserves of the drones, the combined Assaultmaster can fire an Immobilizer ray that freezes the movements of super-robot life forms temporarily.

Unearthed Future

The location was a hillside surrounded by mountains. In a cliff face, a great cavern yawned open. Around it were deep holes in the ground that appeared to be part of some archaeological dig.
Before them, Combatmaster stood alone.
“I’ve been waiting for you, Autobots."
Dodging Racemaster’s preemptive strike, Combatmaster targeted Jetmaster and fired the first shot, but Jetmaster’s form had been hidden away by his stealth capabilities. It was Choppermaster that appeared in his place, equipped with the Jet Drones.
“You’ve got something of mine there, and I’m takin’ it back!"

As a fierce battle escalated between Autobot and Decepticon, Clouder used his Assault Drones to scan the area.
“What were they trying to dig up? Is this really their base?"
The drones’ sensors detected several large fragments of metal that seemed to have been excavated from the ground, one of which was engraved with an unfamiliar insignia.
“What’s this mark…?"

As if in answer to Clouder’s question, the Decepticon Buildmaster emerged from the cave along with the stolen construction drones.
“Take your filthy Autobot hands off of that. That’s proof of a glorious Decepticon future. It’s not for your kind to defile!"
“So, you’re supposed to be the guard dog of the construction site? If you think your future is scrapmetal, I can send you there right now! Unite!"
“A miserable human stands no chance of opposing us!"
Armed with the dual powers of construction and destruction, Buildmaster retaliated in his own Prime Mode. Pitted against the fierce spinning power of his opponent’s shoulder-mounted drill, Clouder manipulated Assault Master with the link system, but his movements were beginning to fall behind…

“Clouder, you keep on movin’! I can handle this guy!"
Grimmaster let out a howl as he intercepted Buildmaster, and as the clash between construction vehicles and dinosaurs began, Clouder continued into the foreboding depths of the cave…

Buildmaster
Function: Destruction Reserve

[Prime Mode]
Strength 8 10
Intelligence 6 6
Speed 6 8
Endurance 7 10
Rank 5 5
Courage 6 9
Fireblast 6 10
Skill 6 8
Total 50 66

Buildmaster:
A secondary member of the Constructicons who was given the moniker “Gravedigger” for a destructive temperament poorly suited to building. His motivation is to bring about the revival of his heavily wounded elder brother.

Decimator Drone:
A construction drone that can use its large drill for combat or excavation. Transforms into an arm.

Dominator Drone:
A construction drone that fires special disks which can be used to control the movements of enemies. Transforms into an arm.

Eradicator Drone:
A construction drone with a front blade that scan for underground objects. Transforms into a leg.

Annihilator Drone:
A construction drone that rams opponents with its roller. Transforms into a leg.

Buildmaster Prime Mode:
Combined with the four Build Drones stolen from the Autobots, Buildmaster’s power exceeds even that of Devastator. Internal sensors allow him to accurately detect metal or relics buried deep within the ground.

I like that clouder is finally getting to redeem himself for his initial actions in masterforce, but he's not rick hunter :p Minerva has been the fan favorite but Shoota Go was the main charecter of Masterforce next to Ginrai and Hawk. I like the stories but referancing old skool transformers doesnt make me like PCC more, I got the good ones when they came out in the U.S.

Motto: "FOR THE EARTH!!!"
Weapon: Saber Blade
And, according to Hydra, Gravedigger and the "Eighth Constructicon" are one and the same! WHEEE!!! :D

And he hints at even more to come to complete this story, such as a full on story explaining Scrash's whole deal that he hopes will be made in due time. ;)

Also, that was Tarantulas' lair they were unearthing. 8)
