Switchblade is a highly-trained member of the elite Maximal Command Security Force. His job is to uphold the will of the Maximal Imperium on Cybertron in the name of the Pax Cybertronia. A former tank operator in the waning days of the Great War, Switchblade decided to go into the Security Force at the end of the war, where he could get some front line, up-close-and-personal action.
Switchblade -like all of the MCSF- uses the Cybertron-series Clocker toy as a base (with a modified ArmadaCyclonus head), though no official Switchblade toy exists (and probably never will). His color scheme is based somewhat loosely on the Beast Wars II Maximal Ikard.
