#470 TRANSFORMERS – MICROMASTERS SPORTS CAR PATROL and RACE CAR PATROL (1989)

These two patrols are among the most common and therefore are not very expensive and not very difficult to find. I have already talked several times about Micromasters, so this entry will simply present the characters and that’s it.



SPORTS CAR PATROL
  • Faction: Autobots
  • Subgroup: Micromasters
  • Function: Reconnaissance
  • Motto: "In confusion to there is opportunity."
  • Bio: The self-described "tiny terrors of the turnpikes." This frantic foursome's primary role is to reconnaissance battle sites before the Autobots' big guns arrive. Fast and fearless. Don't mind mixing it up with any early arriving Decepticons. A vital component in the Autobot ranks. Adept at using their superior maneuverability to harass the enemy.

RACE CAR PATROL



  • Faction: Decepticons
  • Subgroup: Micromasters
  • Function: Advance Assault
  • Motto: "It takes force to push back the enemy, but speed clears the way!"
  • Bio: Detour, Hyperdrive, Blackjack, and Road Hugger are four of the meanest machines ever to hit the streets! Their primary purpose is to clear a route for Decepticon ground troopers, and they don't care how many wrecks they leave by the roadside! Known for their menacing clean-up tactics, it is "speed" that is their true calling card, and it enables them to swiftly eliminate anything in their path!
