He never looks at his targets before he shoots since he never aims -- he just sprays artillery in all directions as soon as he arrives. High-strung, unnerved by quiet, expert marksman. Lightning fast reflexes. In vehicle mode, maximum ground speed: 250mph; maximum air speed: 580mph. Carries twin automatic light-pulse blasters. In robot mode, uses heat-ray rifle. Combines with fellow Technobots to form "Computron".

Profile: Before you walk up and say hello to Strafe, you'd better run for cover... because this high-strung, hair-trigger Technobot is more likely to spray you with weapons fire than shake your hand. He's not mean or murderousâ€¦ he's just nervous. Too much quiet makes his circuits tingle. Sudden noises can cause him to pop a few plugs. So rather than remain calm in these situations, Strafe has developed the annoying habit of shooting first and asking questions later. And that's too bad, because once he lowers his guns, Strafe becomes one of the kindest, gentlest Autobots of all. Unfortunately, few ever get close enough to him to find this out for themselves.
Abilities: Oddly enough, despite all his wild shooting sprees, Strafe is an expert marksman. When he wants to, he can burn a hole through a screwhead from two miles away with the searing beam of the heat-ray rifle that he carries in robot mode. In his vehicle mode, he can achieve a maximum ground speed of 250 mph. He can also engage his rear retro-rocket boosters, which allow him to fly at a maximum speed of 580 mph with a 3,000 mile range. In all his modes, he exhibits lightning-fast reflexes. He can outmaneuver a heat-seeking missile and make a right turn at maximum flying speed in the space of a quarter-mile. He combines with his fellow Technobots to form the super-robot Computron.
Weaknesses: Strafe has a tendency to stall in mid-air during some of his more daring maneuvers. The wasteful manner in which he uses his weapons often leaves him lacking ammunition in battle situations when he truly needs it.[ Back To Top ]
