Explanation of the conversion: Skyhammer's shells are bought as vehicles with onboard computers. They respond directly to radio commands from Skyhammer when he isn't wearing them, or can be piloted by him when he is wearing them. To represent Skyhammer before he became a Pretender, merely remove his Vehicles and Susceptability from this write-up, making him worth 200+135 points.

History: If you explained Skyhammer's characteristics to someone, they'd surely think he was a great mechanoid. He is an observant and dedicated warrior tenaciously committed to protecting the innocent from harm at the hands of the Decepticons or any other aggressors. Skyhammer is an optimist who never accepts the words "can't" or "impossible". While all these traits seem good, they don't mention the grating effect he has on his comrads; Skyhammer condescendingly tries to tell everyone how to do their jobs, always explaining how he would do it. His fellow Autobots find it frustrating because although Skyhammer is a valiant fighter who always defends the weak, he's also overbearing and irritating. They feel guilty thinking this way about him, but he brings it on himself.

Skyhammer Powers: Skyhammer is strong, fast, tough and highly skilled. He can change into a cybertonian car which is capable of high speeds and carries a powerful photon blaster weapon which he can wield in either form. He sometimes utilizes a standard Autobot jet pack. Skyhammer is capable of reducing his size to a mere 6 feet tall.

Skyhammer is also a highly advanced Pretender. He has two different shells. The first shell is human-like and capable of turning into a jet, the second is a larger sky-cruiser. When reduced inside his first shell he can pass for human.

Weaknesses: Skyhammer more than a little irritating to others with his condescending attitude. Other Autobots are less than willing to follow his orders, even if he is right. Damage to his shells can cause Skyhammer great pain.
