He bites. He fights. He stands for everything right.

Splashdown transforms into an extraordinarily vague-looking Cybertronic hovercraft. In this mode, his small blaster pegs on the top of his shield, which completes the vehicle mode. His robot form fits inside his Pretender shell, which can also mount the shield on its left arm. Similarly to Sky High and Groundbreaker, the shell's chest plate features an animal-inspired design, in Splashdown's case, a shark's head.
