He then exploits all of those weaknesses to the best of his abilities, an act in which he takes immense pleasure. He likes it so much that he "practices" on his fellow Decepticons, ensuring that even his teammates treat him like Cosmic Rust.

- Twitcher F451 (Real Gear Robots, 2008)
- A redeco of High Score 100, Twitcher F451 transforms into a (non-functional) wireless video game console controller of made-up model. Several companies have produced actual working controllers at a scale only slightly larger (though considerably thicker), but Twitcher F451's lack of a pair of analog triggers beneath his shoulder buttons means he is incompatible with the Xbox 360. Twitcher is one of the few Real Gear Robots to contain an Automorph gimmick; when you press up the switch on the controller's front, the robot's head raises and its shoulder pads flip into place. Like all Real Gear Robots toys, his robot mode is supposedly at 1:1 scale.
- Twitcher was part of the final wave of Real Gear Robots for the first movie line, along with Farsight T-20 and Midnighter XR-4. As it is unknown if the assortment will return for the sequel, they may be the last of the Real Gears.
- Twitcher F451's name may be a reference to Fahrenheit 451, a 1953 science fiction novel by Ray Bradbury and the temperature at which books burn. This guy doesn't want to see you not playing video games.
