  Makeshift was a Decepticon Shifter who once impersonated Wheeljack, who's cover was blown ending up in his destruction.

HistoryEdit

ExilesEdit

Posing as the young and eager Autobot known as Hound, Makeshift made his way aboard the Ark as it left Cybertron, travelling to Velocitron with the rest of Optimus Prime's crew. Once the Ark landed, he took a new shape and inspired Ransack and his cronies to overthrow Override's regime and rule Cybertron alone. Not long afterwards, he sabotaged the Ark in an attempt to trap the Autobots on Velocitron, but this failed as the ship was repaired. As tensions boiled over on Velocitron, Makeshift escaped in his Hound persona to the world of Junkion, and took the form of a Junkion trader known as Shearbolt (he may or may not have killed the real Shearbolt) to misdirect Prime's search team. During an interrogation Axer revealed Makeshift's true identity to the Autobots. He once again tried to destroy the Ark. This time, though, Optimus and Jazz managed to outwit him and trapped him in a stasis field. After an interrogation session, he was taken prisoner by the Junkions and trapped in an old spaceship component, unable to escape. When Megatron removed the Requiem Blaster, the component was broken and Makeshift found freedom and an injured Axer. Not only did he refuse to help Axer but he sold him out to the Star Seekers under the guise of Wreck-Gar's friend Detritus. He was escaping the Junkions and his current location is unknown.

Infiltrating the Autobot Base and DeathEdit

The Decepticons had discovered that an Autobot, named Wheeljack, was arriving to Earth to visit his fellow Autobots. Soundwave gives Makeshift all he needs to take Wheeljack's identity so he can infiltrate the Autobot base and the Decepticons then kidnapped and keep the real Wheeljack captive. Makeshift was then welcomed into the Autobot Base. Bulkhead, who was Wheeljack's best friend back on Cybertron, noticed something is wrong with him during their party.

When his cover was blown, Makeshift grabs Miko Nakadai and threatens to kill her if they tried anything. Just then, a recently-escaped Wheeljack jumps out the open ground bridge and knocks him to the ground. After a fight and a beating from the real Wheejack, Bulkhead throws Makeshift through the space bridge. When Starscream asks Makeshift whether he had learned the Autobots' base location, Starscream noticed a grenade was deployed on Makeshift's side. Starscream and Soundwave escaped the explosion, but Makeshift exploded from the grenade Wheeljack had planted earlier, wiping out dozens of Vehicons, thus the secret died with him.[1]
