AUTOBOT: SWERVE

FUNCTION: METALLURGIST
"Molecular structure is the window to understanding."

If Autobots had driver's licenses, his would have be revoked. A menace on highways. Doesn't pay attention to where he's going or the orders he's being given--easily distracted by anything. Hands' sensors can determine physical and chemical properties of metals. Goes 120 mph, range 500 miles in car mode. Gets into lots of accidents.

A red and white clone of Gears with a boxier look and a real face on the robot, Swerve was the most improved member of the third-year minibot lineup. Like most of his contemporaries, though, he never got much screen time ("Five Faces of Darkness - Part 5" is the only episode I can recall him in, and that was barely a cameo) since there were a wealth of gestalts who had to be introduced that same year who could be sold for more money.
