Camaro is a Malignus from the Generation One continuity family.

No, not that one.

Camaro is a member of the evil Malignus, who is opposed by the heroic Optimus robots.

Note: The toys from the Brazilian sub-series commonly referred to as "Optimus vs. Malignus" do not have bios, but share the same names and molds as previous (factionless) Brazilian releases which in turn had the same bios as their Hasbro counterparts, only in Portugese. As such, it's possible that Camaro is basically "evil Windcharger". This also raises the possibility that the "good/evil" designations are retroactive for the Brazilian toys....


Generation One

  • Camaro (Mini Vehicle, 1985)
A redeco of the Mini Vehicle Windcharger, Camaro transforms into Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (which begs the question of what's up with his name). He was released only in Brazil by Estrela, and was available in two different color schemes: metal-flake blue with pale yellow, and dark purple with lavender robot parts. He also has a new "Malignus" faction sigil decal in robot mode.
All of the "Optimus/Malignus" Mini Vehicle releases are considered fairly rare, and go for a fairly high price on the secondary market, particularly the secondary color schemes; in this instance, the purple/lavendar Camaro goes for more than the blue/gray.
This mold was also retooled to make Rook and Tailgate.
