Timelines: Force of Habit text story

- King Atlas (Ultra, 2004)
- Accessories: 6 missiles
- 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.
