* '''Heinrad''' (1999)
Revealed at [[OTFCC 2004]], the Piranhacons were to be a [[redeco]] of the [[Generation 1]] [[Seacon (G1)|Seacon]] team. Since they used the [[Scramble City]] style of combination, they would have been compatable with any other combiner robots of the same style.

:Heinrad transforms into a tanuki. Tanuki in folklore are usually depicted with massive testicles which they can drum on. Heinrad's testicles are rather large for a Transformer (IE: he has some), but quite small for a tanuki. His articulation, while good, does not allow him to drum on his testicles. In tanuki mould he can also hold a bottle of sake (tanuki are drunks) and a book of IOUs (they're also cheapskates who never pay anyone).
   
They were to be available only in a Wal*Mart [[exclusive]] Piranhaking set for the ''Energon'' line. (Wal*Mart recently had almost a half-dozen different ''[[Universe]]'' exclusive toys come out in the span of a month, and so they wanted the Piranhacon set to be in the mainline at the time instead of ''Universe''.) However, Wal*Mart ended up passing on the exclusive, likely to to low sales of previous exclusives to the chain. This was one of several proposed exclusive toys that ended up in development limbo during that year.

At this time, there are no concrete plans to release the set, though at [[BotCon 2005]] [[Hasbro]] representatives said they were still trying to find an outlet for it. It is ''possible'' that the set might see release through the [[Fun Publications]] [[Transformers Collectors' Club]], as that venue had saved [[Astrotrain (Timelines)|Spacewarp]] from limbo.

Japanese ID number: S-3
Heinrad transforms into a tanuki. Tanuki in folklore are usually depicted with massive testicles which they can drum on. Heinrad's testicles are rather large for a Transformer (IE: he has some), but quite small for a tanuki. His articulation, while good, does not allow him to drum on his testicles. In tanuki mould he can also hold a bottle of sake (tanuki are drunks) and a book of IOUs (they're also cheapskates who never pay anyone).
In robot mode Heinrad can combine his folklore accessories to make a gun which can be held in his right hand. His missiles can be mounted on his calves, or fired with the gun. In this mode his testicles hang from his hips and his spark crystal is located in his right ball. Heinrad's weakness is clear.
In both modes Heinrad has a working analogue clock in his chest. He functions as an alarm clock -- pull up on his robot or tanuki head to activate him, then push down to turn off the alarm. He's very shrill.
