Top Spin is a character introduced in Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
Not a day goes by where Topspin doesn't get a new ding or scorch mark on his armor. His urge to succeed in spite of the odds have never dulled. Now a member of the Wreckers, he pushes himself to the limit in combat, going up against the biggest and baddest. And, usually he comes out on top... even if he ends up losing a limb in the process.
He later joins the battle in Chicago. He and the other Wreckers tear an unfortunate Decepticon pilot into pieces, ALIVE.
After Optimus Prime is trapped by cables, he and other Wreckers go to help Optimus Prime, who later assists the other Wreckers in taking down Devcon. He fires at the Decepticon with his machine guns, while Roadbuster launches two missiles before he and the other two then climb on him and shoot him in the head.
Asylum in Cuba
Topspin among several Autobots that were given asylum in Cuba. He was pestering Seymour Simmons to play ball, and was told Simmons was busy, in which he stated "He always says that". While Simmons was on a phone call with Sir Edmund Burton, he repeatedly asked Simmons to go to the beach with him, in which Simmons told him to wait five more minutes. Eventually Simmons finished his call and went to the beach with him.
