Before the war, the skyline of nearly every city on CYBERTRON was distinguished by the remarkable silhouettes of at least one building designed and constructed by GRAPPEL. His work embodied the spirit and culture of his world, combining perfect functionality with unmatched elegance. It broke his Spark to see his works destroyed, one by one, as the war ravaged the world. Now he builds without art, constructing buildings meant to last only long enough to shelter the AUTOBOTS while they plan their next mission.

|Additional Toy Info |
Grapple is a remolded version of Universe Inferno. He features a new head, a new crane attachment in place of the water cannon, and new larger feet to better balance him and distribute his weight.
Named "Solar Storm Grappel" on the packaging for copyright reasons, and to obscure his faction in line with the Reveal the Shield series' overall gimmick.
Never released at general retail in the US. A few cases were available at Botcon 2011, and shortly after was sighted in the Ross discount store chain. Released at general retail in the UK and other overseas markets for a brief period in April-May 2011.
