Marty Minkler is a television reporter. His attention to detail is...somewhat lacking.
- Voice actor: Philip L. Clarke (US), ?? (Japan)
Minkler covered a ceremony for the unveiling of a statue of Optimus Prime by Jazz and Cliffjumper (who he mistakenly introduced as "Cliffjump"). Minkler's assignment became considerably more interesting when the ceremony was interrupted by an attack from Starscream and the Combaticons.
