When the Decepticons sent the clones Pounce and Wingspan to Australia in order to steal uranium for use in nuclear weapons, Optimus Prime assembled an elite team of Autobots to stop them. They were so successful that they have since been permanently stationed in Australia, defending the great Southern continent from Decepticon attacks!




"Ride the ocean wave."

Used to the ocean waves, Breaker was horrified when reconfigured for Australian operation as a car. Specialist in aquatic environments, hates being confined to the roads. To compensate, has become an avid surfer. Can operate at depths of up to 100km. Built for crushing ocean pressure, armour can withstand enemy artillery fire. When not complaining about ill-chosen vehicle mode, Breaker is the most easy-going and fun loving of all Chainmasters. Shoulder-mounted chain used for close quarter combat.

"It's always the red wire."

Former Chainmaster commander, the darker side of Minesweeper’s nature was accentuated due to accidental exposure to radioactive material: irrevocably damaging data tracks. Unable to fully trust his leadership, he was deposed and replaced by Spectre. Incredibly self-confident. Cool head and sense of practicality that makes him ideal demolitions expert, but socially deficient. Uses mini-missile launchers concealed on back in combat. Chain functions as a mine-detector in either robot or vehicle mode.

"You don't know how far you can go until you get there."


Muck Raker isn't happy unless half-buried in a swamp, tyres churning through the mud as she pushes through uncharted territory. An explorer at heart, relishes the opportunity given to her by her station in the Australian outback. Fastest of the Chainmasters, especially off-road. Almost no territory she cannot traverse in either robot or vehicle mode. Uses Mud Blaster to gum up her opponents’ works. Uses grappling chain to get out of the tightest spots

"Protect the land and you protect its inhabitants."


At 1.8m, Spectre is the smallest Chainmaster. Observes human culture using a holograph field to disguise himself as human. Loves the land and is protective of its people. Guided by Aboriginal elders, has assumed Chainmaster leadership. Able to use holograph field to resemble any creature or object, or to create dazzling light show to temporarily blind opponents. Uses hypno-chain to inject foes with hallucinogenic techno-venom. Chain is prone to leaking, exposing Spectre to his own venom
