After Grumblebee and Stiffworker, I figured, if you
could have Autobot "defectors", why couldn't
we have any Decepticon "defectors" as well.
Hell, we already have some major characters like Thundercracker
secretly doubting the cause already. So with that in
mind, we have a seeker "defector", Slipstream.
pretty much sports the basic seeker body with just one
major revision. I really liked what Dreamwave did with
their redesign of Skyfire/Jetfire for the War Within
Series. So I basically copied the idea to give Slipstream
a face visor. I just though it made him look a little
cooler and differentiate him from other seekers. Plus,
if you were a traitor, would you be so willing to show
your face anywhere?
