"Echoes and Fragments"[edit]

As Sideways and Gong played with mixing universal streams, the Renegades staged an all-out assault on Autobot City on Earth. Their hijacked Command Center was spotted and shot down by Nick Burns and Hot Rod. Fly Trap and Destroyer deployed to eliminate the interlopers. Destroyer destroyed their Lookout Mountain platform with his first blast, then converted into tank mode to finish them off. However, the Autobot Kup spoiled his aim, diverting the cannon blast to Fly Trap instead, who then crashed down on top of Destroyer. Echoes and Fragments

A repackaged import from the Machine Robo Scale Robo DX line, Destroyer converts from robot to German military Leopard 1A4 tank. The toy has an intermediate "gerwalk" mode that was identified in the European and Japanese instructions, but not in the American version. However, this "mode" was briefly featured in the American release of Challenge of the GoBots.


  • Destroyer's Cybertronian-style body in the "Cataclysm universe" is modeled on Classics Broadside, with the head turned around for the turret to face forward.
