Zapmaster is a Mini-Con from the Armada portion of the Unicron Trilogy continuity family.
Have you seen me?

This character needs some sort of visual representation. If you have one, please replace this.

Zapmaster will attack just about anything head-on, no matter how big and overpowering it may be. "Fear" doesn't ever seem to register in his brain. He lived in the Wastelands of Cybertron for who-knows-how-long, which turned him into the vicious little bugger he is today.



  • Thundercracker with Zapmaster (Max-Con, 2003)
A redeco of Armada Swindle mold, Zapmaster transforms into an F-1 race car. He is designed to fit between Thundercracker's flip-out missile launchers, and can also be clipped on the underside of Thundercracker's jet-mode cockpit, deployed by pressing down on the canopy.
This mold is similar to, but not the same as, the mold used to make Armada Mirage and Top Gear.
  • Thundercracker with Zapmaster (Built To Rule, 2003)
For the Hasbro Built to Rule building block system, Zapmaster was a simple redeco of the small, building-block-based version of Swindle. This toy can be rebuilt from robot mode into something kind of vaguely resembling a race car. Sort of.


  • Prowl with Longarm & Starscream with Zapmaster (Multi-pack, 2004)
Zapmaster got redecoed again, as sort of a reverse-Swindle, as part of the Sam's Club exclusive Energon multi-pack. This time he was partnered with Starscream, who also came with Prowl and his "reassigned" Mini-Con partner Longarm.


  • In Japan, the Armada Thundercracker/Zapmaster set was actually used (with ever-so-slight plastic tweaks) as the powered-up versions of Starscream and Swindle rather than new characters.
