Madblender is a third-party Transformer and an homage to the Constructicon Mixmaster. He combines with the other toys in his line to form Hercules, an homage to Devastator. He was the sixth member of the set released.[1]

According to his tech specs Madblender is highly skilled, has massive firepower and is very tough and strong. He has below normal speed.
