Reception

The Star To Star Toys News podcast for October 14th, 2014 discussed Axis in the news.[1]

Fictional biography

Profile: Forged from the same C-14 Body Type as SHAFTER, this CON of the night is fully upgraded for battle. There is not many Destrons hiding on Planet Zone, but AXIS is one of them, and you won’t find him, he will find you. Many bots have lost their sparks to this hunter of the night. The further you get from ZONE BASE, the more likely you won’t be returning as AXIS is hiding in the shadows, waiting for his chance to strike. He has been in the Great War for many years and changed his body multiple times to keep up. His side arm blasters let off a quiet energy pulse that puts most Seibertrons out for the count, then uses his TUYO gun to finish the job. Some bots say he trained under DIESEL for many years before breaking out on his own.

Abilities: Metallikato, Circuit-Su and Crystalocution just to name a few of the name arts of taking out one’s enemy that AXIS is a practitioner off.

Weaknesses: He can’t resist a challenge, and with a big mouth like SHAFTER calling him out of his comfort zone and into the bright lights of ZONE BASE, he is putting himself at a disadvantage.

TFcon comics

Axis appears in the TFcon 2014 comic story "The Dark Warrior". In this story he is tasked by Toxin with breaking into the Zone Base to gain information on Zodiac Energy. Once there he confronts his spark-brother Shafter.[2]
