"Outer space is the key to inner space"
Believes that in order to defeat the Decepticons, the Autobots will first need to control the cosmos. Strives for a method of trapping the Decepticons on one planet, be it Earth or Cybertron. Is fascinated with space, enjoys inter-planetary missions, spent much of his spare time before the war exploring space. Wings allow him to fly in almost any atmosphere in vehicle mode, although not into orbit (to his dismay). Carries Twin electron cannon, Neutron blaster and Plasma beam rifle as robot, Twin hi-powered machine guns under hood as vehicle.

"Earn your stripes, then use them to your advantage"
Camshaft's aim in life would appear to be to inflict as much pain on himself as possible. Will return from a scouting mission resembling a front-line casualty, although he wont head for repairs unless it's vital. Believes injuries are an indication of effort, hence he almost enjoys hurting himself. Holds himself in low regard, tries to convince himself he's a hard worker (which he is). His low self-esteem contributes to his masochism. Many of his comrades are continually stunned by the belting he gives himself, although he's fairly selfless, hence a good team player, and he's always willing to take a blast for a friend. Most Autobots realise he knows when to get stitched up, and they mostly appreciate his efforts. Carries neutron blaster as robot.

Function: Security Agent
"Nothing gets by me in one piece"
When the Omnibots function as a unit, Downshift takes command, keeping Overdrive's head out of the clouds and Camshaft's attached. He's not the best leader, in fact he works better alone. But he's got a long attention span. When working as a security agent he works under Red Alert, albeit mostly by himself, so he's effectively his own boss. His job is building traps, detectors, closed circuit monitors, intercoms and such, and maintaining them. And he loves it. He also likes taking things apart to see how they work. Very curious. The handyman of the Autobot army, he'll fix almost anything they break. Once he's on a battlefield his job is to keep heavy weaponry functioning, he hates the front line but is a furious fighter when he ends up there. Believes the war should be fought with wit rather than sheer force. In vehicle mode, the sides of car fold down to reveal twin rocket launchers, and serve as pontoons. He's able to
negotiate rivers, lakes and calm seas as a pseudo-hydrofoil. Downshift's main weakness is getting too involved in the task at hand, sometimes becoming oblivious to his surroundings which leaves him vulnerable. Carries rust rifle as robot, twin rocket launchers mount on his shoulders
in robot mode.
