Transformers: Robots in Disguise
|Alternate Modes||Four Robots|
|Series||Transformers: Robots in Disguise|
|English voice actor||Michael Reisz|
As the engineers who built the Global Spacebridge tunnel system that transports the Autobots around Earth, the Build Team always wanted to see action on the front lines, and thanks to Optimus Prime, they got their chance. It is hard to imagine that personalities like the powerful Heavy Load (Build Typhoon), the alert, seasoned Hightower (Build Cyclone) and the calm, rational Grimlock (Build Hurricane) could be led by such a young hothead as Wedge (Build Boy), but his compassion and caring for his teammates mean that they respect and stick by him. The team is capable of combining into Landfill (Build King) in various configurations.
Landfill is the 12-meter tall super robot formed of the four members of the Build Team. Thanks to his unique Tornado Fusion System, he can optimize his configuration for any combat situation. Landfill has three different modes, each in which Wedge remains at the center while the other three members rotate around his hub. The Hurricane Mode, in which Grimlock forms the back and arms, is a superb multi-purpose type formation, balancing offense and defense with a shield and rifle; the Cyclone Mode, with Hightower in the upper body, is a power type form excelling in close-quarters combat, wielding a melee shovel, and shield; and the Typhoon Mode, with Heavy Load in the topmost position, is his battle type formation, which has high offensive power, with a rifle and shovel.

Famous quotes containing the words robots and/or disguise:
“The danger of the past was that men became slaves. The danger of the future is that men may become robots. True enough, robots do not rebel. But given mans nature, robots cannot live and remain sane, they become Golems, they will destroy their world and themselves because they cannot stand any longer the boredom of a meaningless life.”
—Erich Fromm (19001980)
“They use thought only to justify their injustices, and speech only to disguise their thoughts.”
—Voltaire [François Marie Arouet] (16941778)
