We have an amazing piece of art featuring Spinout dashing into battle holding his gun in robot mode and his beautiful red Lamborghini “Supercar” LP500S mode in front of him. The extended bio is a very nice surprise since it states Spinout function as an assault rescuer and reveals Spinout’s mysterious origin which connects the original Diaclone Car Robot story with the Transformers universe.
Check out the mirrored images as well as a complete translation of Spinout’s bio (thanks to 2005 Boards member HolyCulture) after the jump. After that you can sound off your impressions on the 2005 Boards!
Update: Extended Bio translation corrected and improved thanks to Soundwave’s Oblivion website..
Rescue Assault Spinout, a homage from Diaclone, the precursor of Transformers, joins the MP series!
The color palette, dimensions, and specifications are modeled directly after Car Robot NO.1 Countach LP500S type from Diaclone.
A completely new Masterpiece branded character transforms from the Lamborghini “Supercar” LP500S to Rescue Assault team member, Spinout!
The specific variations of the original Diaclone figure have been faithfully reproduced, while maintaining the excellent articulation and vehicle mode features that were already exhibited by Sunstreaker and Cordon.
The concept of the original Car Robot NO.1 Countach LP500S type has been made into a reality with a product that strongly adheres to the modernization of Transformers.
MP-39+ Cybertron Rescue & Assault Spinout
Function: Assault & Rescue
Motto: “Don’t embellish history with trivial details.”
Profile: Spinout was originally a battle machine (Car Robot) on an Earth in another dimension, which was unprecedentedly given consciousness by a Cybertron ancient computer, becoming a Super Robot Lifeform. Although impulsive and hotheaded, Spinout demonstrates obedience and loyalty to the Earthlings. He clearly remembers his past life as a battle machine and doesn’t feel confident about fighting without a pilot. Spinout’s vehicle form is a Lamborghini Countach LP500S, which illustrates both the mystery and paradox behind his origins.
“Delta Magnus’ personal log”
In our haste to secure the outer space facility “Diadem”, which stores vast amounts of ancient Cybertron data, events took a turn for the worst. The facility had been decimated in a fierce battle between the Destrons and Quintessons, and a lot of valuable data had been lost. Fortunately, I was able to recover Cordon’s original memory, but he refused to install it. What we also discovered…was not what we expected. Evidence which completely changes the view of Seibertron’s history. One robot, “Spinout”, was discovered in a chamber in the depths of the Diadem, and had been in stasis for nearly 10 million years. In other words, an ancient robot with an earthen vehicle mode existed on this planet! What is going on? According to the Diadem memory banks “Anterior Zeta”, Spin-Out was originally a battle machine from an Earth in another dimension and was castaway on this ancient planet due to a space-time anomaly. Spin-Out was affiliated with the “Diaclone” force. Zeta had analyzed their spacecraft and seemed fascinated with the events of the Diaclone war against their enemy, the Waruder. Was Zeta crazy or was he hacked…anyway, Zeta ensured the Diaclone mission would continue and put into motion a secret protocol. He created a genetic command program that was spread throughout his repair network on the planet. Upon detecting any Waruder presence the program would automatically take over and ensure their destruction was top priority. It’s hard to believe there had been such an intervention with our race, yet we have already seen examples of this programming. There had already been the “Bluestreak Case”, where the Streak who encountered the Waruder army’s Probe Insecter completely changed. We need to take action! If the Waruder are such an evil menace, I would fight them anyway. Nonetheless, the decision and determination should be our own!
