Lightfoot is a fictional character from the Transformers series. He shouldn't be confused with Getaway, who looks almost identical.

Lightfoot is nearly identical in appearance to the Hasbro Autobot Getaway and his Powermaster partner Rev, however he is a completely different character than the one portrayed by Hasbro.

His tech specs state he can travel at speeds of Mach 10 in racing car mode. He excels at high speed combat and is a first class strategist. He carries an electromagnetic rifle and his final attack is the "Round Waterfall", where he brings up water from the Earth and strikes it at his enemies like a waterfall.

Animated series

Although Getaway would not make any appearances in the western animated series, he made an appearance of sorts in the Japanese exclusive series Transformers: Super-God Masterforce as the Japanese equivalent of a Powermaster - a Godmaster, called Lightfoot. Here though, the original robot was merely a Transtector, given life and sentience only when powered by a human. The human Lightfoot is the 17 year old son of the head of British Motors, a Canadian-based auto company (although his bio states he's from the United States). His father created a prototype car from metal he discovered in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. When Lightfoot became old enough to drive, his father gifted him the car. Lightfoot started to get dreams of a robot. He contacted Godmaster Ginrai when he heard about his television appearance, and the Autobots started to suspect his car was a Transector. He was given a set of Master Bracers by Ginrai and became a Godmaster when they were attacked by the Decepticon Pretenders. He is able to control the flow of water.[1]

At the end of the series, Lightfoot separated from his Transtector after Devil Z's defeat - only to discover that their linked time had given the Transtector sentience of its own. Taking its human partner's name, it journeyed into space alongside the other Godmasters to further battle the Decepticons.

In the Transformers: Zone animation the Autobot Godmasters were seen among other high-ranking Autobots (such as Road Caesar, Grand Maximus, Metalhawk, Landcross, and Lander) when Dai Atlas is sworn-in by Victory Saber as the new Supreme Commander of the Autobot forces.

Toys

  • Generation 1 Godmaster Lightfoot (1988)
Identical to Powermaster Getaway, Lightfoot was a 15 cm long Mazda RX-7. With a real Mazda of that model measuring 429 cm long, this toy would have a scale of about 1:29. Having a 15 cm tall robot mode as well, that would mean Lightfoot would stand about 429 cm tall as a real robot, or about 14 feet tall.
