BT-01 Cybertron Tactician Smokescreen
● Function: Tactician
● Transformation: Subaru Impreza WRC 2003
The first Cybertron warrior to be restored through the Binaltech Project. With the exception of the quantum computer in his brain and his main weapon, he was completely reengineered in Japan by Fuji Heavy Industries and STi to completely reproduce Smokescreen’s original functionality. In vehicle mode he can reach speeds of 230 km/h and fire smoke grenades from his tailpipe. He has always been able to dispel his comrades fears and anxieties and now his restoration is a huge encouragement to the rest of the Cybertron warriors and the development team.
● Weapon: Electro Disruptor Rifle

BT-02 Cybertron Warrior Lambor
● Function: Warrior
● Transformation: Dodge Viper SRT-10
The second Cybertron Warrior, revived through a special project from DaimlerChrysler’s engineering team, PVO. After a thorough analysis of Transformer technology and using their own unique conversion technology, the finished product was a high performance robot, the likes of which had not been seen before in human history. In robot mode his backpack and the repulsion panels on his legs allow him to fly for short periods of time. Because of his recklessness, a complete backup system was put in place with a dedicated spare parts production line.
● Weapon(s): Electro Pulse Gun

BT-03 Cybertron Gunner Streak
● Function: Gunner
● Transformation: Subaru Impreza WRX
Despite his speed and manoeuvrability, Streak is not a warrior. His constant talking is tedious yet can ease tense situations. In reality he uses it as a shield to hide the emotional scars from past battles. Streak's body was built before the other Binaltech numbers but after an EDC audit and concerns over his mental state, his introduction into service was postponed. He proved his abilities through gruelling simulations and verbal examinations and was successfully returned to the line of battle.
● Weapon(s): Ion Charged Dispersion Rifle
STR...6; INT...6; SPD...7; END...9; RNK...5; CRG...2; FPR...9; SKL...7

BT-04 Cybertron Scout Hound
● Function: Scout
● Transformation: Jeep TJ Wrangler
Developed in collaboration with DaimlerChrysler and High Technology Industries, the Cybertron tracker has been restored and is equipped with the latest detection capabilities. Hound loves the Earth’s natural environment and secretly longs to be human. He sees the Binaltech project as the first step towards his dream. As a strong supporter of the project, he is willing to test the new technology together with their accompanying risks. As well as his loyalty and bravery, he now has a higher level of perception thanks to high-precision sensors which have been installed throughout his body.

BT-05 Destron Soldier Dead End
● Function: Soldier
● Transformation: Dodge Viper Competition Coupe
Through advanced brainwashing technology, the Destron’s secretly oversaw the production of an evil Binaltech soldier at one of the humans research institutes. Brave and courageous but at the same time, pessimistic. He sees no logic in a war doomed for mutual destruction. Destroying enemies who stand against him is nothing more than a minor distraction for him. Although he has lost the ability to combine due to the Binaltech conversion and calibration tests, he feels an attachment to his new body and fears that one day he will have to return to his old body and rejoin the Stuntrons.
● Weapon: Compressor Air Gun
STR...7; INT...6; SPD...8; END...7; RNK...5; CRG...9; FPR...9; SKL...7

BT-06 Cybertron Warrior Tracks
● Function: Warrior
● Transformation: Chevrolet Corvette
Tracks cherishes his Earth vehicle mode and is deeply connected to his Binaltech body, meticulously crafted by General Motors with their full resources. His vanity has intensified over time, making him increasingly self-conscious. He loathes any harm that befalls his body, and this heightened concern has sometimes led to lapses in concentration during battles, putting his own safety at risk. Presently, he's been entrusted with a significant role as one of the few Cybertrons capable of flight. With unwavering courage, he thrusts himself into perilous battlefields, relying on advanced forcefield technology to bolster his defences.
● Weapon(s): Black Beam Gun; Heat Seeking Incendiary Missiles; Dual Plasma Shotgun

BT-07 Cybertron Tactician Smokescreen GT
● Function: Tactician
● Transformation: Subaru Impreza WRC 2004
The most recent iteration of Smokescreen now features the innovative "Genetronic Translink" technology, to compensate for the critical shortage within the Cybertron Earth Guard. This breakthrough enables the creation of clones from an individual and they share a singular spark. As a result, up to four Smokescreens can now function simultaneously.
However, the potential impact of this experimental technology on the vital activities and mental equilibrium of the Transformers remains uncertain. Consequently, deploying them into combat at their maximum operating range is considered a last resort.

Meister BT-08
Function: Lieutenant
Transformation: Mazda RX-8
An expert in Earth's culture, Meister is the trusted right-hand man of Convoy. Meister was one of the few not affected by Cosmic Rust. However, as he is required to take special missions, involving secret investigation, he agreed to transfer his spark into the new transformable body built by Mazda. This not only gave him a flawless disguise for his saboteur missions, but also equipped him with the new GT system. With his 'partner', a replicate automation that inherited all of Meister's knowledge, they carry out all kinds of dangerous missions, and not only complete them successfully, but with style as well.

Meister BT-08
Function: Clone
Transformation: Mazda RX-8 red mica version
The second Meister, crimson in colour, is the result of the original BT-08 research, the Cybertron replicant automation. Constructed emulating Meisters personality program, though still insufficient to call sentient robot life, it still has a high level of independent action, and through Meisters remote control, can fully participate in battle. Meister calls this AI brother 'Zoom Zoom', occasionally teaching him dance and music lessons.
Weapon: Photon Rifle, Flamethrower

Swindle BT-09
Function: Munitions Expert
Transformation: Jeep Wrangler TJ custom
Due to the BUDD production incident, the Destrons now have the same Binaltech technology as the Cybertrons. Among the first wave of evil Binaltech warriors reborn from the Destron Binaltech project is Swindle. A specialist in black market trading and weapon manufacturing, Swindle is also involved in developing strategic weapons, such as re-engineering the cosmic rust virus that caused many Cybertrons to fall, which in turn initiated the Binaltech project. At first glance, Swindle seems to have an easy going character, in reality, he is an opportunist that will do anything to further his own position and fulfil his own greed. He managed to put himself forward as one of the first few Destrons to be formatted by the Binaltech technology, even though there were other badly damaged Destrons that were initially prioritised to be reformatted first.
Weapon: Gyro Gun, Scatter Blaster

Grimlock BT-10
Function: Lieutenant Commander
Transformation: Ford Mustang GT 2005
Leading the Dinobots into battles at the front line on Seibertron, Grimlock fell victim to the enemies’ scheme resulting in the loss of his control of his dinosaur form, and his body took a lot of damage. Grimlock realised it would be difficult to repair his original body, but was eager to get back into action as soon as possible. Grimlock agreed to any conditions; he went to Earth and chose to become reformatted into a Binaltech Transformer. In response to his determination, the Alliance provided him a body of the largest power class, thus marked the birth of the most powerful Binaltech warrior. Grimlock, now in his new Cybertron form is determined to continue fighting the approaching Armageddon.

Ravage BT-11 battle ravage
Function: Saboteur
Transformation: Chevrolet Corvette
Excavated from a prehistoric layer, ‘File X-9’ was the base from which Ravage was reborn. Possessing knowledge and memories of the future, Ravage processes a fearsome presence. Using an electromagnetic emission shield and the latest in Binaltech technology, he is able to hide his presence from others completely, both in vehicle mode and robot mode. With his back rockets and waist thrusters, Ravage is able to stay airborne for an extended period of time. Operates best alone, and is crafty in devising deadly new strategies. Seeking Destrons Forever to be the ruling faction, he regrets not having been being successful in achieving his goal in the past. Ravage now sees this as the perfect opportunity to change the future.

Overdrive BT-12 windcharger
Function: Strategist
Transformation: Honda S2000
With his calm yet sharp wits, he has turned the tables in many an outnumbered battle. Functioning mainly with the rescue corps, he will rush to those who call for aid. He will keep a stratagem thought out several years ahead, and then move on to his mission location. His activities didn’t stay in just one solar system, but reached other galaxies in time and space. Following his transformation to the Binaltech technology, he remains as the logistics hub for the Cybertron-Earth military alliance force. His affluent experience with dimensional travel and acute sense of intuition with time allows for his senses, which are more highly developed than his comrades, to sniff out abnormal time flows.

Due to an unforeseen incident during his GT installation process, the ‘Laser Core’ – the source of his life force was lost. But thanks to the help of a courageous human, a new life force was breathed in. Retaining all his prowess, profound devotion, gentle manners and his infinite endurance, he prepares to guide the Cybertrons and their allies against the evil that conspires behind the temporary peace.

● Transformation: Subaru Impreza WRX
● Weapon: Ion Charged Diffusion Rifle
STR...6; INT...6; SPD...7; END...7; RNK...5; CRG...2; FPR...9; SKL...7; TTL…51

Streak is a warrior well known for his marksmanship and talkative nature. Hailing from the original timeline, separate from that of the Binaltech warriors, he is on a mission to save the lives of his comrades. As the existence of the Binaltech world is classified for the inhabitants of the “Official World”, only his core unit was transported to this world where he was given a Binaltech body so he could carry out local missions. Here, he became “Bluestreak”. The name is an expression of “tedious talk” as well as “blue line”. Amongst his many codenames, this one accurately represents his personality.

BT-20 Cybertron Argent Meister

● Function: Adjutant
● Transformation: Mazda RX-8 MAZDASPEED Version II
● Weapon(s): Photon Rifle, Flamethrower
STR...9; INT...9; SPD...7; END...10; RNK...8; CRG...9; FBL...5; SKL...10; TTL…67

Meister's latest upgraded form is equipped with a silver coating substance commonly known as "Argent," which significantly enhances his physical abilities and durability. This substance is an artificially synthesised replacement for the rare element "Electrum," which once sprang from the secret Golden Lagoon on Earth, bestowing Transformers with unmatched power. It not only permits power regulation through energy charge control but can also transform into a liquid form, facilitating the coating of any desired target. He holds a deep affection for Earth's culture and experiences an indescribable sense of unease regarding the ongoing situation, where the rapid proliferation of Binaltech technology is fundamentally altering human civilization.

BT-21 Cybertron Arcee
● Function: Warrior
● Transformation: Honda S2000
● Weapon(s): Dart Storm Gun; Riot Shield
STR...6; INT...8; SPD...8; END...9; RNK...5; CRG...8; FBL...9; SKL...7; TTL…60

On one hand Arcee is kind hearted and loyal on the other hand she is a ruthless warrior towards her enemies. Her Binaltech body was given to her as an expendable shell so she could participate in high risk experiments for Binaltech research which has now become the subject of a global technological competition. The Binaltech body is tough enough to withstand hostile environments and unforeseen disasters but in an emergency her life core is quickly transferred to a safe environment. In combat, this body is not suited for the psychological games she was inherently good at but its resilience is extremely useful. Her main weapon, the Dart Storm Gun, is a powerful firearm which can continuously fire rounds of bullets from the long barrel by using electronic ignition.

BT-22 Cybertron Convoy
● Function: General Commander
● Transformation: Dodge Ram SRT-10
● Weapon(s): Ion Blaster
STR...10; INT...10; SPD...8; END...10; RNK...10; CRG...10; FBL...8; SKL...10; TTL…76

Ultra Magnus assumed control of the Matrix and the Cybertron army, while Convoy chose to observe and support the fate of the Binaltech world. Convoy adopted a new body reverse-engineered from a scan of his arch-enemy, Black Convoy, becoming a fresh Binaltech warrior. This illustrates his unwavering resolve to never tolerate the presence of "Evil Convoy" and serves as his solemn vow to defeat him. When his spark merges with the emissary from the future, known as the "Protector," his combat abilities are maximised. He can absorb, store, and retaliate against enemy attacks, and he's also capable of launching shuriken-shaped light bullets from his abdomen. These unique abilities are not part of the original Binaltech design.
