|Specifics: Box art|
Most of the Decepticons who came to Earth seeking Megatron stick to the shadows, stealthily seeking out tips on their leader's whereabouts. However, stealth is not Incinerator's thing. He wants to know where Megatron is, and he's going to interrogate every Autobot he can capture to find out. His interrogations generally consist of taking his hapless "passengers" on a terrifying flight and scaring whatever scraps of information they might have out of them. Of course, once they've told Incinerator what he needs to know, they're free to go...
...from 25,000 feet up.
When more Decepticons start arriving, Fracture guides Incinerator and Dropkick to a military base. Dropkick scans a pick up truck and Incinerator scans a V-22 Osprey helicopter.
Later, in Florida. Incinerator is attacking Ratchet and Optimus Prime. Optimus has already dealt with Dropkick. Ratchet cuts through the Decepticon's leg, allowing Optimus to stab him through the Spark chamber with his energy sword, killing Incinerator.
- Incinerator (Voyager, 2008)
- Japanese ID number: MD-22
- As part of the "AllSpark Power" portion of the movie line, Incinerator transforms into a Bell Helicopter Textron/Boeing Helicopters V-22 Osprey tiltrotor transport aircraft, based upon the CV-22 variant used by the US Air Force and featured in the film. Pushing on the radar mounted on his tail activates an extensive gear-train, which causes both rotors/fingers to rotate regardless of whatever position his wings/arms are in. His Automorph feature opens up his canopy as his chest assembly is rotated downwards into robot mode and (in a lesser Automorph) pops out his pelvis once his legs are separated away from his vehicle underside.
- The TakaraTomy version of Incinerator sports a different color scheme than the Hasbro counterpart, replacing the two shades of gray with a primarily black color (but retaining the purple and "Allspark Power" blue plastic colors). In addition, it also sports "0025" markings on the tail in an attempt to make the alternate mode more movie-accurate, though this aim is questionable given the Ospreys in the Movie weren't black. Like all Japanese "Allspark Power" releases, "black" Incinerator comes with a small Allspark cube accessory.
- Incinerator was one of the many working names for fellow Decepticon helicopter Blackout.
- Incinerator's coloration and personality appear to be based on those of the Generation One Combaticon Vortex — which was yet another working name for Blackout.
- Incinerator's box art is curiously different from the actual toy's head design, as the art sports large, round, Bumblebee-styled eyes that take up a large portion of the face, whereas the toy's head sculpt sports a Jazz-type visor for eyes. However, the visor can be seen partly above his eyes on the art, so he might have a slide-down visor.
- As of February 2008, the V-22 has entered service for the United States Marine Corps and for the United States Air Force after 20 years of development.
- The helicopter which was the inspiration for Incinerator was used at the beginning of the movie.
