Windcharger isn't precisely the fastest Autobot on the ground, but he does have the highest acceleration. Heedless of any passengers he might be carrying, he goes from zero to 130 miles per hour in less than a second, and screeches to a stop almost as fast. His overloaded power plant generates a strong electromagnetic field, which he can direct into powerful blasts from the cannons in his arms.

|Additional Toy Info
Windcharger was revealed at Botcon 2010. A Scout class toy, he is a perfect homage to the original Generation 1 Windcharger, and features flip out magnets on his arms to represent his powers on the original show alongside 3 mm rail clips to allow him to use the missile pods from Darkmount or weapons from Recon Ironhide.
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. Saw a limited release earlier in 2011 in the UK and other overseas markets.
