Voice actor: Kevin Michael Richardson

When the Decepticons tried to locate the Autobot HQ, Starscream and Soundwave ordered Makeshift to take the form of an newly captured Autobot and spy on the Autobots. At first the Autobots were happy about their comrade, but at some point Bulkhead noticed, that something was wrong with his old friend and asked him about a battle long ago on Cybertron. Makeshift answered it almost right except for one little thing: Bulkhead wasn't there! The Autobots tried to attack Makeshift, but he took Miko hostage and opened a ground bridge to the Decepticon ship. Just then the real Wheeljack returned and challenged the Decepticon soundly trashing him. After that, the Autobots threw him through the ground bridge. Starscream wanted the location of the base, but he noticed a bomb, which was placed on Makeshift by the Autobots. Starscream flew away, when the bomb exploded, screaming that Makeshift was a fool.
