Allegiance: Dairycon
Name: Washout
Function: Military Intelligence

Quote: "I am NOT an oxymoron!"

Used to be a high-ranking officer in the Cybertonian Forces, until an incident with energon-overfueling led to his discharge. Now, will work for anyone for a beaker of high-grade fuel. A mercenary in practice. Washout works for the highest bidder...if they can meet his price.

Washout is a formidable weapon, both in body and mind. Belives a mission's success lies in its planning. Transforms into an armored tank. Can fire photon missles with pinpoint accuracy. Remembers battles long past and crafts future strategy accordingly. A relentless fighter. Few can withstand the onslaught.

Getting sloshed on a semi-regular basis is Washout's only true weakness. If he can lay off the energon, he can usually focus on the task at hand. Recurring processor glitch sometimes robs him of his short-term memory.

Notes: Guilty as charged.

I'm pretty happy with him. The prototype figure, made several years ago, can be found here: (Pic 1 | Pic 2 | Pic 3 | Tech Spec!)

I've been wanting to see this released since the first Dairycon. He makes a nice companion piece to Uncle Whiskey Breath (because after all, you can never have enough cow-colored alchoholic transformers.)

Only 5 production pieces were released of Washout, making him the super-rare lucky-draw Raffle prize for 2007 (the only production-piece as rare as Washout would have to be Heffer). So kudos to whoever got him. :-)

Washout was released the same year as Nachos BelGrande, and has been known (in the Dairycon Universe, at least) to have used some of the MexiCon's accessories. :-)
