Long ago, Topspin felt the sensation of pain and terror, culminating in smoke and twisted metal, and finally darkness. After drifting through nothingness for an eternity, these semblances of memory are all he remembers of his past. After a chance trip through a wormhole, he now works for Alpha Trion within his workshop in the TransTech city of Axiom Nexus.
Topspin has the incredible power of being able to move sparks between bodies, or even split a spark into multiple pieces if he should so desire. This ability serves Alpha Trion's desires well, and Topspin is eager to use it in service of the robot he believes to be a truly great leader.
- Topspin (Basic, 2008)
- Accessories: Quintuple-barreled "energon" cannon, energon chip
- Topspin is a redeco of Energon Stormcloud/Blackout, transforming into an assault helicopter similar to an Apache. He can also form a leg or arm to any Energon-series "Powerlinx Combiner" super robot. He comes with a quintuple-barreled "super energon" cannon that forms a hand or footplate for his limb-modes, plus a Decepticon-style energon chip.
- He was the 2008 "early bird freebie" toy exclusive to the Official Transformers Collectors' Club, sent to members who signed up before the deadline. Like his fellow freebies, he is also available for sale on the Club store for those who didn't make the deadline, or future members.
- Although Topspin (so far) features only in TransTech stories, his toy is technically Classics, judging by his instructions.
