|Evil Autobots, Secret Police|
|"Lies and screams are music to my ears."|
Bio: Nightbeat serves the Autobot forces as the head of the Secret Police, enforcing the decrees of Optimus Prime and rooting out potential Decepticon sympathizers from the ranks of the Autobot army. Highly suspicious of any soldier who shows even a hint of dissension, Nightbeat will use any means necessary to get the information he wants, including torture and dismemberment. An extreme paranoid, he often sees enemies where there are none. While highly feared by most other Autobots, he mistakes this for their respect. To him, fear and respect are the same thing.
Abilities: While his logic center isn't quite as sophisticated as some Autobots', Nightbeat is more than capable of leaping beyond logic to find the "truth" than some, making him the most effective interrogator in the Autobot ranks. Carries a stun gun that can physically incapacitate his victims, but leave their higher cognitive functions operational.
Weaknesses: Nightbeat suffers from a chronic case of Cosmic Rust, the result of a failed assassination attempt. While treatment has reduced it to a minor irritation, failure to continually monitor the condition can cause it to flare up and render him both highly contagious and unable to funtion.

Nightbeat (Shattered Glass) Additional Info
Because the collector's club exclusive would not be released until after Botcon 2008, this toy - only available to those taking one of the customizing classes - would be the first chance many fans had to own this Energon Hot Shot remold. The class also supplied some very cool Shatteredverse Autobot Intelligence Agency logos for him.
