Clocker was a champion racer back on Cybertron many centuries ago, running at breakneck speeds to the cheering crowds. But when the war for the All Spark began, racing was no longer entertainment, it was survival. Clocker put his considerable talents to the Autobot cause, hoping that once the war was over and peace returned, he could go back to his true passion and race laps once again with his buddies.
Clocker and Jazz were being pursued by Bonecrusher, with Jazz half-dead due to not protecting his Spark Core properly - he would've been fully dead if Clocker hadn't saved him. Clocker ordered him to flee while he fought the enemy — the condition Jazz was in, "you're more hindrance than help to me". Clocker's shots barely affected Bonecrusher and by the time reinforcements arrived, he had been killed.

Clocker was the first Autobot to greet Arcee after her arrival on Cybertron; though she was at first surprised to see him (he was supposed to be dead after all), he later revealed that several Autobots were with him, and planning a raid on the temple at Simfur to save Elita-One, Signal Flare, Warpath, and Grindcore. He later joined the rest of the Autobots as they moved in on Simfur.
- Clocker (Scout, 2007)
- Accessories: Engine-blaster, left & right side-pipes, Cyber Planet Key
- Part of the second wave of Target exclusive Scouts, Clocker is a redeco of the Cybertron-series Clocker toy, transforming into a Cybertronic open-topped race car, complete with driver's and passenger's seats. Plugging a Cyber Planet Key into his rear assembly pops up a pair of thrusters with pull-out non-firing blaster barrels. This assembly becomes a hand-held weapon for robot mode. He also has a pair of removable side-pipes that can also be used as hand-weapons. He comes with a silver-bordered, black-plastic Speed Planet-style Cyber Key.
- This mold was also used to make Cybertron Swerve, and retooled to make the Timelines versions of "Axalon Cheetor" and "Unit 2" Tigatron. The mold was also used as the basis for the non-toy Maximal Command Security Force members.
- The metallic blue paint deco on this version of Clocker is taken from an unreleased minicon from Armada that would have had that name.
- As seen in the image at the top of the page, despite the actual figure being repainted, Clocker appeared in the comics in his Cybertron color scheme.
