Clamp Down is an Autobot in the Generation One continuity family.

The reason Red Alert is paranoid.

Assigned to an Earth police force as part of an exchange program along with his brother Deep Cover, Clamp Down is a tough, dedicated cop who works tirelessly along with his human partners. Uncomplicated in his way of thinking, the straightforward, sometimes black-and-white, view he has taken thanks to the Autobot/Decepticon war occasionally clashes with the views of his new co-workers, not to mention the legal system.


Generation OneEdit

  • Clamp Down (Autobot, 2003)
Japanese ID number: 91
An e-Hobby exclusive available only in a set with Deep Cover, Clamp Down is a repaint of the original Red Alert toy, transforming into a Lamborghini Countach LP500S, using the exact same base plastic colors, but with different paint and decal applications to make him into a police car. As he was released in Japan, his spring-loaded missile launcher is fully operational. Several factory-applied decals on the original version were replaced by painted tampographs, like his headlamps.
The base mold is also used for Sideswipe,Deep Cover and Tigertrack.


  • Clamp Down's deco is based on the pre-Transformers Diaclone toy that became Red Alert, the "New Countach LP500S Police Car Type".
