DescriptionEditThis crowd-pleasing, hard-scrapping Autobot built his celebrity hammering 'Cons in the Kaon fight pits back in the dark days on Cybertron.
Showdown is equipped with an optimized energy shield which can absorb massive damage, enbaling him to safely draw fire away from his allies and lead the charge into battle. His utility systems come into play when he needs to quickly regenerate his spark and shield.
A form fitting for his size, Showdown possesses a monster truck vehicle mode. Few things get in the way of his huge tires due to the fact they might get crushed, but just in case, a long-range surge cannon is on hand to deliver searing plasma damage.
Showdown always finds his way to the center of the battlefield where he is a big hit with his comrades, sharing his shield and taking damage for the whole squad. When backed onto the ropes, his systems will surge and he'll bust out the "Showdown Shuffle", putting on a spectacle that'll knock your fenders off.
