Explanation of the conversion: Since there was no individual tech spec for Silverbolt II this write-up is based on information in the combined tech specs of Magnaboss and that of the Japanese release of Silverbolt II called Skywarp II.

Magnaboss History: Silverbolt II is a Maximal named after an Autobot hero of the Great War. Silverbolt II is a master of aerial combat. He is very serious but knows when to lighten up. Silverbolt II has great consideration for young Maximal warriors and does his best to treat them with respect. He is a teacher at heart who tries to share his wisdom and skill with all who are willing to learn from it.

Silverbolt II traveled with Ironhide II in order to meet up with Lio Primal on the planet Gaea. Once there Ironhide II and Silverbolt II were reformatted into animal forms native to that planet. Silverbolt II was partnered with Prowl II and Ironhide II in creating the gestalt warrior Magnaboss and together opposed the Predacon forces of Galvatron II.

Returning to Cybertron after the defeat of Megatron II, Magnaboss became a member of the Maximal High Council along with Torca, Air Hammer, Bantor, Battle Unicorn and Corahda. Optimus Primal came before them to warn them of the coming of Unicron, but they questioned his story and ordered him confined for fear he would start a panic among the population of Cybertron (Transformers: Universe #3).

Trivia: Silverbolt II shouldn't be confused with Silverbolt, an Aerialbot who turns into a jet, Silverbolt III, a Maximal who turns into a wolf/eagle hybrid, Silverbolt IV, the Japanese name for Stormjet II, or Silverbolt V, an Autobot Micromaster who turns into a jet.

Silverbolt II Powers: Silverbolt II is energy efficient, brilliant, fast, skilled and couragous. In robot form he carries twin razor tipped wing swords and has missile launchers in his wings. He is an incredibly skilled flyer. He converts into an eagle which is capable amazing aerial feats. He recovers from damage quicker in beast mode and is better protected from high energon levels as well.

Silverbolt II combines with Ironhide II and Prowl II to form Magnaboss.

Weaknesses: Silverbolt II is very confident of his abilities, although this is usually justified. He is very protective of others, particularly young of any species. In beast mode he lacks ranged weapons. High energon fields can adversely effect Silverbolt II if he stays in robot form for too long. His animal form is protected from high energon levels.
