3H Universe comics

When Trailbreaker and Silverbolt cut the security systems that kept Unicron's prisoners in their cells, King Atlas was part of the swarm of Cybertronians who made their escape. Escape

Note: 3H's writers noted that King Atlas was going to become a much more prominent character in the Universe comics, leading an "underground railroad" that would free the untold numbers of Cybertronians who had been kidnapped by Unicron. This, of course, never came to be due to the bankruptcy of 3H.

Hi. I'm a brick.

A redeco of the Generation One Decepticon Predator Skyquake, King Atlas' alt-mode is similar to the Cobra Night Raven S3P recon stealthjet (which is based off the Lockheed SR-71 spyplane). Like the other US release of this mold, Machine Wars Starscream, it lacks the original spring-loaded missile launcher hand-weapon due to there being no way in hell it would pass US safety testing. It does retain the "carpet bombing" gimmick in its wings, plus the light-pipe and "periscope" gimmicks.


  • Hasbro Transformers Design Director Aaron Archer said that this figure was deliberately colored to resemble Dai Atlas. Along with the extensive paint washing of his jet-mode parts, he actually ends up looking a fair bit like a Star Wars vehicle.
