Allegiance: Vehicon

Function: Mobil Infantry

""Run 'em down!"

First Cartoon Appearance:
Beast Machines, episode 1
The Reformatting

Profile:  The cycle Drones are sparkless warriors under the control of Vehicon General Thrust.  Other than their first appearance in The Reformatting, these drones seldom pose much of a threat; often being as effective as speed bumps for Optimus, Cheetor and the rest of the Maximals, who typically crunch through them like potato chips!  But dang, the toys are awesome! In my opinion, they're the best most show accurate figure in the Beast Machines line, by far!

Other appearances: Lots actually!  The first TF w/ the name Thrust was a G1 Decepticon hover-jet  There was another jet in the BW2 line, and the Delx toy version of BM2000.  And before Thrust became the more competent, powerful, loyal character he was in B.Mach, he was Waspinator in BWars! 

Be sure to note just how very wrong the toy is Transformed on his own tech specs! Uuuuugly!
