- Heinlad (aka Heinrad)

He has a clock in his stomach, which gives him the ability to manipulate time. His super secret skill is being able to stop or stretch time for a limited duration, but there's a flaw in this ability: he still can't control it at will. Heinlad's past and combat abilities are surrounded in mystery. This is also proved on his tech spec statistics as the only thing stated is that he has a rank of 7 - everything else is unknown. His beast mode is also unique, being based upon the tanuki or raccoon dog animal. The most notable feature of said animal was amazingly large testes which, according to Japanese legend, the tanuki used as both seat and as drums. This trait is reflected on the toy as two round objects right underneath his clock belly that become hip pads in robot mode, one of which contains his spark crystal. Wired Magazine once nominated him as one 12 most ridiculous Transformers of all time.
