So does this make Thunderblast Audrey?on November 23, 2005 at 12:20 am
Okay, so we already know that Transformers Cybertron’s packaging bios rock. For example, there’s Brushguard, who in any other line would have just been a random Decepticon redeco of Overhaul, no questions asked. But hell no, Brushguard is a botanist. An EVIL botanist. He makes things that, not unlike Topato, are made of poison. This made him cool, and probably the first Evil Decepticon Botanist in, like, forever. He was already destined to be mine.
But on top of that, each toy’s pack-in Cyber Planet Key has a code printed on the back that, when typed into transformers.com, gives you further biographical information. So lemme paste:
A cousin of Overhaul, Brushguard was lured by Megatron into a life of evil by hollow promises of money, Energon and power. Brushguard, though a brilliant scientist, is secretly in love with movies from Earth. He has an entire collection of primitive Earth DVDs that he watches while he is in his laboratory cooking up monstrous viruses and genetic mutations for Megatron. His dream project would be to create a bio-mechanical Autobot-eating plant that resembles the Earth Venus Fly trap plant. He would teach it to talk too – it would say, “Feed me, Brushguard!”
If I have to spell out for you why that is incredibly awesome, I am no longer your friend.
