Explanation of the conversion: Scattershot's Flight and Gliding only work in vehicle form, whereas his running only works in robot form.

Starscream attacks the Technobots in Transformers #50 History (Marvel comics): Scattershot and the Technobots were among the Autobots who joined Fortress Maximus in leaving Cybertron for the planet Nebulos (Transformers: Headmasters #1).

Followed to Nebulos by the Decepticons under Scorponok, Fortress Maximus' band left Nebulos for the planet Earth (Transformers: Headmasters #4).

Scattershot was present when Grimlock fought Blaster for leadership of the Autobots on Earth's moon. The Autobots were then attacked by the Decepticons lead by Ratbat (Transformers #41).

Scattershot and the other Technobots were severely damaged by Starscream when he gained cosmic powers from the Underbase (Transformers #50).

Scattershot leads by his actions, not his words. This brawling, bragging berserker's idea of strategy is to wade into a Decepticon patrol with all barrels blazing and not withdraw until has out of ammo or out of enemies, whichever comes first, and he expects his followers to do the same. Anyone who disapproves of his tactics he considers a "tin-plated buckethead." At times, given his rude, gruff manner, Scattershot seems more like a caricature of a career soldier than a real one, but this blustery, often comical demeanor can't disguise the valiant warrior underneath - one who will shed his last drop of fuel, if necessary, for the Autobot cause.

Trivia: On the Transformers television show, the voice of Scattershot is played by actor Stephen Keener. On the Transformers television series the Technobots were created by the Dinobot Grimlock to fight the Terrorcons when Grimlock temporarily gained super-intelligence. There was a Chinese made knock-off of Scattershot which was very similar to the original.

Scattershot Powers: More than any single ability, Scattershot is known for his stamina. He'll continue fighting even after his joints are wracked by metal fatigue. In vehicle mode, he's equipped with a powerful 700 megavolt pulse cannon in his nosecone. Wing-, side- and turret-mounted guns shoot an awesome array of sonic, thermal and artillery shells. He can fly at a maximum speed of 1,900 mph, with a range of 10,000 miles.

Scattershot In battle station mode, he can utilize the same weaponry with even more precision once he deploys his omni-directional radar screens. In robot mode, he carries a 500 rounds-per-minute automatic acid-pellet gun, which can turn an enemy robot into a pile of slag in a matter of moments. Scattershot combines with fellow technobots Afterburner, Nosecone, Lightspeed and Strafe to form the super-robot Computron.

Weaknesses: Aside from collapsing due to exhaustion because he's pushed himself beyond the point of endurance, Scattershot has no specific weaknesses.
