Re-Volt is, shockingly, a Renegade, and the leader of the Dread Launchers.
Challenge of the GoBots cartoon
To acquire the mystical gemstone in a wealthy theatre patron's will, the Renegades put on a frankly marvelous production of "The Pirates of Penzance". Re-Volt's performance of Frederic was truly electric.
On another occasion, the Renegades infiltrated a SciFi Con in order to steal the Dynamic Asymmetrical Wavelength Nullifer from its creator. Re-Volt came in cosplay to the event, dressed as the Fourth Doctor.
While marooned on Axiom Nexus, Cy-Kill described Re-Volt and his team of Dread Launchers to a rapt audience.
Re-Volt also commanded a Thruster during the Renegade assault on the Scientific Moon of GoBotron.
"Echoes and Fragments"
For their own amusement, Sideways and Gong played with reality so that elements of a GoBots universe blended in and out of a Transformers universe. In this mingled reality, the Renegades lay siege to Autobot City on Earth. Blaster and Perceptor attempted to radio for help to Optimus Prime on Cybertron's Moonbase One, but Cy-Kill spotted them. He and Dr. Go dispatched Re-Volt and the Dread Launchers to jam the transmission. They destroyed the antenna, but were intercepted by Blasters Recordabots before they could reach the broadcaster himself.
- Re-Volt (Dread Launcher, 1987)
- Renegade Robot Falcon
- One of the last GoBots released, Re-Volt is also one of the largest. Like the other Dread Launchers, he splits into two alternate modes. His top half becomes a robotic hawk (not a falcon, despite what the box says), and his bottom half becomes a rolling platform helipad thingy. The bird can attach to the platform, because as we all know hawks are known for riding around on carrier vehicles.
- Re-Volt is one of the most articulated GoBots, with universal joint shoulders, bicep swivels, elbows, and fingers/talons, as well as hip joints.
- As with the other Dread Launchers, no version of this figure was released in Japan.
