Ha HA! Ambiguous.

Sureshock is the thinker of the Street Action Mini-Con Team.

With Grindor and High Wire, Sureshock is part of the Mini-Con combiner Perceptor.


Note: Numerous sources list Sureshock as a female character during Armada, however, the bio for the Cybertron toy identifies her as male. Awk-ward.

Armada

  • Street Action Mini-Con Team (Basic, 2002/2003)
Part of the the initial wave of Armada Mini-Con sets, Sureshock transforms into a motorized scooter. She also forms the legs to the Street Action Team's combined mode Perceptor. She was only available in a three-pack with her teammates High Wire and Grindor
  • Street Action Micron Anime Color (CD w/ toy, 2003)
This redeco of the Street Action Team was available only with the CD single of the first Micron Legend theme song, "Transformer - Dream Again" by Psychic Lover. The toys were decoed to be somewhat more cartoon-accurate; in Sureshock's case, this means somewhat lighter orange plastic, and a light blue-gray paint on her face and bike seat.
  • Arcee (Change Micron, 2003)
Part of the first assortment of Kabaya Change Microns, this candy toy version of "Arcee", despite appearances, is actually an entirely new molding based on the original. She retains her combining ability with her teammates. This version lacks the yellow paint on her headlamps, and has darker gray for her face and seats. She came in an individual box, packed with a baggie of sugar-pellets. Mmm.
  • Magna Convoy DX Set (Gift set, 2003)
The last of the X-Dimension Mini-Con redecoes despite being the first Mini-Con team released in Japan, this version of the street action team was available only as part of the massive Toys "R" Us-exclusive Magna Convoy DX set, with the Japanese version of Powerlinx Optimus Prime and a clear-plastic version of Overload. Sureshock was redecoed in a scheme somewhat inspired by her Japanese namesake Arcee; white plastic with red and black, and pink paint applications.

Energon

  • Perceptor (Basic, 2004)
For Energon, the Street Action Team (interestingly enough never referred to as such on the packaging) got all-new, more powerful bodies. Sureshock upgraded to a four-wheeled off-road one-man ATV. This time around, she forms the main torso and arms to their combined Perceptor form. She was only available in a Basic-class multi-pack with Energon High Wire and Grindor.
This mold was also used to make Mudbath and Throttle.

Universe

  • Sunstorm with Inferno and Street Action Mini-Con Team (Multi-pack, 2004)
Available only as part of the Wal-Mart exclusive multi-pack containing Universe Sunstorm, Inferno and her teammates, this evil incarnation of Sureshock uses the original Armada mold, cast in predominantly black plastic.
  • Mini-Con Team Perceptor (Basic, 2005)
The Energon version of Perceptor was "repackaged" without changes onto a Universe basic card, and sold through discount chains in the US like Family Dollar.

Cybertron

  • Backblast vs Sureshock (Mini-Con 2-pack, 2006)
A rather stunt-bike-showy redeco of her Energon toy, Cybertron Sureshock was available only in a Mini-Con 2-pack with the Decepticon-allied Backblast. It's worth noting that this is the only version of Sureshock that is branded on the toy with an Autobot faction symbol.
The Deep Space vs Street Action sets were the last of the Cybertron Mini-Con 2-packs released, and apparently were not very well distributed at retail, making them difficult to find.

Merchandise

  • Bumble (SCF, 2003)
    • Accessories: SCF stand
Available in ACT-10 of the Takara Super Collection Figure PVC line (the last "Act" of the line), this small PVC figurine of Perceptor was available in both full-color and an all-pewter-paint version, packed one each per case of twelve figurines.
