the Autobots: 1985

Though the original crew of the Ark fought well against the Decepticons on earth, in time their numbers simply proved insufficient for the task at hand. Through various means, Optimus Prime and his fellow Autobots supplemented their ranks with a large array of additional operatives, all of which were ready, willing, and able to continue the fight against their eternal foes. They include:

Larger Autobots:

Skids: though something of a scatterbrain and definitely slower than his fellows, Skids is definitely a valued member of the Autobot team. This because, in his role as their theoretician, he's always got some data useful against the Decepticons! Availability:

Smaller Autobots:

Cosmos: a high-flying reconnaissance operative, Cosmos often hovers far above the earth, spying on Decepticon activity and enabling global Autobot communications. However, he easily gets bored, tormenting humans for fun if left alone too long. Availability:
