- Glide is a Micromaster from the Operation Combination and Micromaster Collection portions of the Generation One continuity family.
Glide is a member of the Turbo Team, six urban-operations Micromasters who can combine to form Sixturbo. The Turbo Team fight alongside the Guard City team and other Micromasters to protect the Earth from the forces of the mighty Decepticon führer Scrash.
In an alternate-timeline/universe, Glide's having a lot of fun on Earth. He has a tendency to pick up girls (human girls, no less) when he should be gathering intelligence, though he insists it's all part of the job. Despite this, he's actually a very capable warrior.
Since the Glide of "Operation Combination" had no bio information whatsoever, it is unknown if the "Micromaster Collection" bio is retroactive, applying to the original version as well, though many fans treat it as such.
Operation: Combination story pages
Glide never appears as an individual, only as a component to Sixturbo's robot mode.
Micromaster Collection Story
Like most of the Turbo Team, Glide was infected with the Reverse Evolution virus, presumably though contact with Road Police, Circuit, Neo-Wheel, or Discharge. The virus turned him into a Decepticon, and he went about causing random destruction with his teammates. Sireen tricked Glide and the others into combining with him to form Sixturbo, then restored them all to normal with an antivirus program.
Later, Road Police and Glide's investigation of a mysterious Decepticon attack led to the discovery of Destron Sixbuilder.
- Sixturbo (Micromaster Sixteam, 1992)
- The original version of Glide was available only as part of a Sixturbo gift set in Japan. Aside from the motorcycle mode, Glide can form the back of any of the similar-build Six-Teams (Sixturbo, Sixbuilder or Sixwing). The original Six-Teams are considered among the more difficult Japanese Generation One pieces to find.
- Glide (Micromaster, 2002)
- In 2002, the entire Sixturbo team was re-released as part of the "Micromaster Collection", in individual boxes with a number visible to show which mold was inside each box. For this release, all of the decals from the original version were replaced with paint applications. Glide came with the pelvis and thighs to Sixturbo in this release.
- In every case of twelve Turbo Team Micromasters, two of them were solid-black-plastic "Reverse Evolution" Decepticon-allied variations. All six Micromasters were available in this manner.
