Mixmaster (Transformers)

Mixmaster (Transformers)

Mixmaster is the name of several fictional characters in the various Transformers universes. Because of trademark issues with the name Hasbro sometimes substitutes the name Quickmix for Mixmaster.

Mixmaster is a Decepticon and member of the Constructicons. He and the other Constructicons form together to make Devastator, a very large and powerful Decepticon. He can mix chemicals to produce acids for various purposes. He will use anything for his experimental purposes, from unliving rocks to living Autobots.

Animated series

In the original animated series, Mixmaster transforms into a cement truck. The constructicons are the first combiner group in G1. Mixmaster forms the left leg of Devastator. An often occurring animation error is that Mixmaster is sometimes rendered purple and sometimes green.

Animated series

According to the Autobot, Omega Supreme, millions of years ago, the Constructicons were the creators of the beautiful Crystal City on the Transformers' homeworld of Cybertron, which he was assigned the task of guarding. As a friend of the Constructicons, he was hurt the most when they were attacked by Megatron, who, seeking to bolster the forces of his then-small army, subjected the Constructicons to the Robo-Smasher, a device which reprogrammed their minds and turned them into Decepticons. In their first act as Megatron's troops, the Constructicons lured Omega away from Crystal City and demolished it, enraging Omega, who pursued the Constructicons across the planet. Eventually, he succeeded in capturing them and apparently restored their programming to its original state, but as the group returned to rebuild Crystal City, Omega learned that Megatron's reprogramming could never be undone—the Constructicons were still Decepticons, and more than that, Megatron had given them a new power: the ability to combine their bodies and minds into the giant known as Devastator. In the ensuing struggle with Devastator, the Robo-Smasher attacked Omega's mind. He was able to stop it before the reprogramming was complete, only to wind up losing his emotions. Filled with only hatred for the Constructicons, Omega relentlessly pursued them, until they finally fled Cybertron in a spacecraft, which Omega chased across the galaxy.

In 1984, the Constructicons joined with Megatron's forces on Earth, and their first mission was an impressive one - Scrapper designed a machine to transfer the other Decepticons' powers to Megatron, and while he battled Optimus Prime, holding the attention of the Autobots, the Constructicons invaded the Ark to destroy Teletraan I. Unfortunately for them, the Ark was protected by the Dinobots, but by merging into Devastator, they became more than a match for their prehistoric foes. The return of the other Autobots and the discovery of Megatron's deception spelled the end of the battle, however, as Hound distracted Devastator with a gigantic hologram, and Optimus Prime blasted the giant at just the right spot to force the Constructicons to disengage. They and the other Decepticons were then forced into a river of lava.

The Constructicons survived the river of lava along with the other Decepticons and continued to assist in Megatron’s plans of conquest. In the year 2005, Devastator was the Decepticons' primary weapon in the Battle of Autobot City, tearing through the defenses and walls of the city and battling the Dinobots once more. On the return trip to Cybertron, it was Bonecrusher who advocated the "survival of the fittest" policy that saw many wounded Decepticons ejected from the shuttle, among them Megatron, prompting Scrapper to nominate the Constructicons for the new leaders of the Decepticons. Hook took great offense to the notion that the unpopular Soundwave would make a better leader than they would, leading to a mass brawl to decide who would be Decepticon leader. Later, on Cybertron, the Constructicons were blowing trumpets during Starscream's coronation but were cut off due to Starscream's impatience.

In the remainder of 2005 and throughout 2006, the Constructions maintained a smaller, but still present, role in the Decepticon army, lending their talents to the Decepticon/Quintesson alliance by constructing Trypticon out of a populated human city in only one night. Later, they built a planetary engine on an asteroid and battled on the planet Eurythma, aided in the overthrow of Paradron and took part in an attack on Japan. Although brief, the Constructicons even played a part in the battle for the Plasma Energy Chamber in 2007.

Marvel Comics

In the Marvel comics, the Constructicons, including Mixmaster, was created by Shockwave in Transformers #10. The constructicons aided Shockwave in transmitting a message to Cybertron. When the autobots attempted to interfere, the constructicons combined into Devastator and was able to fend off the Autobots, allowing the message to go through.

In an alternate future of 2008 featured by Marvel UK, Mixmaster is the leader of the constructicons instead of Scrapper or Hook.

Dreamwave Comics

In Dreamwave Productions's re-imagining of the Generation One universe, it was revealed that the Constructicons were responsible for pioneering the Combining process through a series of experiments on themselves, thus creating Devastator. The constructicons were featured in Dreamwave's Transformers: The War Within and Transformers: Generation 1.

Mixmaster was originally a cement mixer until Allspark fragment animated him into a transformer. He is capable of producing a smoke screen and acid which can burn through steel doors. His hand can turn into a device to pour out his mixes while the tumbler on his chest/stomach turns - including quick dry cement. He enjoys drinking oil and whistling at hot little red sports cars. When first created, he sported a primarily yellow and black paint-job, as opposed to his Generation 1 counterpart's green and purple. His robot mode resembles a stereotypical depiction of a human construction worker, complete with plumber's crack. He speaks with a Brooklyn accent.

Animated series

He makes his first appearance in "Rise of the Constructicons" alongside Scrapper. After the pair are brought to life by a fragment of the Allspark, Scrapper points out that his name must be "Mixmaster", after reading his truck mode's brand name. Mixmaster dislikes his name, considering it too long, preferring to be called "Mix" for short (possibly an allusion to the fact that Hasbro had trouble obtaining a trademark on the name Mixmaster). Initially the two befriend Bulkhead, but are hired by Megatron after his Decepticons tricked the two into helping them steal supplies to construct a Space Bridge by offering the Constructicons oil as payment for their service. After drinking contaminated oil provided by Bulkhead, the two exploded and lost their memories of any of the preceding events.

They return in "Sari, No One's Home", following a spilt trail of oil to the Autobot's base. They are eventually scared off by Sari, and run into Blitzwing, who offers them Decepticon oil, and tells them "There's more where that came from".

Scrapper and Mix are formally inducted into the Decepticon forces in the "A Bridge Too Close" two-parter. They are branded with the Decepticon symbols, and their color schemes are changed to match those of their G1 selves. When the Decepticon base starts to cave in, Scrapper and Mix stay behind, in an attempt to save their oil supply, and end up buried under tons of rock.
