- Allicons are slightly-less-unintelligent Quintesson enforcers from the Generation One continuity family.
Allicons are another breed of the Quintessons' enforcer-units, often used as guards for more important members of the race. They are slightly smarter than the Sharkticons, even capable of speech, but free will has been pretty thoroughly removed from their programming, to the point where they will malfunction if resisting a direct order.
They transform into bipedal, vaguely crocodilian creatures.
A group of Allicons intercepted Kup and Hot Rod when the two Autobots were lost on Quintessa. Kup used the Universal Greeting and offered them energon goodies, which made the Allicons friendly... until the goodies ran out. Oops. The Allicons subdued the two Autobots and took them to the Quintessons' court chambers, tossing them into the cell next to Kranix.
A single Allicon later served as the guard for a Quintesson scientist who kidnapped Ultra Magnus, Cyclonus, Marissa Faireborn and Wreck-Gar. When the captives escaped, it dueled Wreck-Gar with a spear until the Quintesson's ship started being dragged into a black hole and the whole group had to work together to escape. When the Quintesson tried to flee in the only escape pod and everyone else tried to stop him, the Allicon just blanked out as it couldn't disobey its orders. Eventually they all escaped from the black hole, and the Allicon and its master went off on their own.
Marvel Comics continuityEdit
- The script for the movie originally called for the Allicons' scene to feature Sharkticons, but we got these critters instead. Neither in this scene, nor in any of their reappearances during the series were they referred to by name - the script for The Killing Jar identified them only as "Quintesson Guards." The creatures were given the name 'Allicon' years after the fact in Dreamwave's 2004 More Than Meets The Eye series.
- No action figures were made for them. Unfair.
