Keith's Fantasy Club

Rhinohorn Justice Version is a third-party Transformer homage to Generation 1 Ramhorn created by Keith's Fantasy Club in 2013. He turns from robotic rhino to microcassette.

He should not be confused with his mirror universe counterpart Rhinohorn Evil Version.

Development

The Rhinohorn design is a mass market version of the custom Ramhorn toy designed by Eagle's TF in 2012.[1]

Robot Kingdom placed prototype images of Rhinohorn and Ironpaw on their Facebook page in January 2013.[2]

Colored images of Rhinohorn Justice Version were posted to the Meteor Operations Facebook page in March 2013.[3]

Rhinohorn Aces Version was announced by WikiAlpha in April 2013.[4] It shipped late that month. Both the Justice and Aces versions of Rhinohorn shipped that month.

The pink translucent version of Rhinohorn was announced on the Philippine Toycon 2013 web site in April 2013.[5]

Reception

In the Cybercast podcast for April 6th, 2013 the hosts talked about Keith's Fantasy Club Boxbomber and Rhinohorn in the news.[6]

A test shot of Transistor and several of his tape minions were featured in an article in the October 2014 issue of Chi Soul Die (模魂志) magazine.[7]

Fictional biography

Considered an outcast by most of his race, Rhinohorn has always felt ostracised by his RoBot allies, blaming his lack of robot modes for his oddity status. Many feel he would have been more at home with the RoCons, where many of the ‘bots with more unique configurations found kinsmanship in the dark days before the Great War.

People don’t know how right they are. Although Rhinohorn is a very intelligent and capable individual, he is actually quite shy with a mild stutter that embarrasses him, and it’s these character traits above all else that led to him being overlooked, and he started to gravitate towards the darker side where his aggressive actions and bad attitude were all he needed to prove himself. The truth is, he owes a huge amount of gratitude to Blast for giving him… well - more than a home - a purpose. Blast saw the potential in Rhinohorn and – seeing past the façade - gave him a chance, using him as more than mere muscle by consulting with him, and valuing his opinions.

These days he is quite content with his position, and seemingly a different ‘bot than he used to be, happy to tag along behind and smell the flowers. But many who have seen him in action on the battle field ask the question: "What if he had a bad day?"

Comics

Rhinohorn appeared in the 2013 story Re-Evolution. In this story he is wandering through the dark parts of the former city of Khan when he runs into Resound and Reverb.

Rhinohorn Justice Version appears in the Doubledeck pack-in comic story as one of the cassette minions of Transistor.
