- The Autobot repair device is mechanism from the Beast Wars portion of the Generation One continuity family.
You gotta love Autobot repair devices. They're crude, but cheap, and they get the job done.
After Megatron damaged Optimus Prime in an attempt to ensure the Decepticons won the Great War, Blackarachnia used codes to Teletraan I to activate repair equipment. After the Ark's repair device was brought on line, Rhinox initiated repairs, while Optimus Primal took the dangerous step of merging his spark with Prime's own. The device, hovering over Prime's damaged head, managed to regenerate the circuits and construct new armor.
Though one of the strongest of the Maximals, Rhinox had difficulty moving the switches.
