Explanation of the conversion:

History: Saved by Rattrap from the conversion freezing virus, Buzzsaw is grateful to the Maximal cause. Slightly proud, often heard referring to himself as "The Bee's Knee's", a statement none of his Maximal associates can discern.

After the defeat of Megatron II the planet Cybertron was left reformatted into a techno-organic world.

Buzzsaw III On the reformatted techno-organic Cybertron Cheetor, Rattrap, Silverbolt III and Blackarachnia were interviewed by the Autobot reporter Rook. They then welcomed the Autobots Roulette, Shadowstriker, Sideswipe, Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker back to Cybertron. Buzzsaw III, Quickstrike II and Rockbuster were also present. The returning Autobots along with Blackarachnia and Silverbolt III were then abducted via teleportation beams and taken to Unicron. Tap-Out, Megatron IV, Brawn, Grimlock and Snarl III were also abducted from various timelines. Silverbolt III, Blackarachnia, Sideswipe and Sunstreaker were forcibly reformatted by Unicron. Taken captive by Razorclaw IV, Reptilion, Obsidian III, Tankor II and Striker, the Autobots were forced to fight one another. They witnessed Smokescreen III kill Smokescreen, whose spark was absorbed by Unicron. Sensing the need for a champion Primus and Alpha Trion brought Optimus Primal back to life (Transformers: Universe #1).

Trivia: Buzzsaw III should not be confused with the original Buzzsaw, a Decepticon cassette, Buzzsaw II, a Predacon who turns into a wasp, Buzzsaw IV, a Mini-Con who turns into a saw, or Buzzsaw V, a Decepticon who turns into a helicopter.

Buzzsaw III Powers: Buzzsaw III is highly energy efficient, very fast and highly skilled. He can assume the form of a wasp. He is a powerful and skilled flyer. Impressive aerial abilities and tendency towards gossip make him an excellent reconnaisence scout-likes to be the buzz about town. Multi function stinger can pierce even the most impentriable armor and functions as a receiver\transmitter. In robot mode he heals from damage quickly.

Weaknesses: Buzzsaw III can sometimes frighten easily, and flee as quickly as he entered battle. He lacks ranged weapons.
