Patrol Specialist is an homage to the Transformers Autobot Tote. He has the same color, alt mode and a similar head sculpt to Tote. He also comes with alternate Ironhide-inspired heads.
Patrol Specialist was first revealed when his preorder went up on Big Bad Toy Store in December 2012. They estimated its release for April of 2013.
Finished product pictures were posted to Weibo in April 2013.
