Crosshairs (G1): Misc



Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

The name or term Crosshairs refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Crosshairs (disambiguation).
Crosshairs is an Autobot Targetmaster from the Generation One continuity family.
Crosshairs. Everyone owns one. Everyone.

As the Autobot weapons supervisor, Crosshairs oversees the procurement and maintenance of a dizzying arsenal of implements of death for his fellow Autobots. Long association with such machinery has made him meticulous and careful, possibly to a fault. Crosshairs will often refuse to fire his own weapon unless he's certain it won't miss.

Crosshairs enjoys a good relationship with his equally methodical Targetmaster partner Pinpointer, who is content to let Crosshairs call the shots.

Italian name: Cross
French name (Canada): Échevelé




Marvel Comics continuity

Crosshairs eventually became disgusted with his role in the unending cycle of suffering and quit his position as Weapons Supervisor to join Fortress Maximus as a front-line warrior.

However, when stuff exploded on Nebulos, Fortress Maximus was all "Waah, I'm on fire, where did our guns go?" and Crosshairs was pressed back into service as the Autobots' armorer.

When Thunderwing took control of the Creation Matrix, he blasted Crosshairs. Since Crosshairs was never seen again after this point in comic continuity, and Hot Rod mentioned that three Autobots were deactivated by Thunderwing, it's possible Crosshairs was one of the casualties. All Fall Down


Note: These stories do not fit into the normal Marvel continuity. See Earthforce for details.

Crosshairs was among the "new age" Autobots who attended Optimus Prime's meeting with Grimlock and the Dinobots about their more brutal methods. When Grimlock threatened to quit the Autobots, Prime seemed all too willing to let him, and the two of them actually came to blows. After beating some sense into each other, however, Optimus Prime agreed to allow Grimlock his autonomy, to lead "Earthforce" while he and the Ark's crew took off for space. Break-Away!

Cartoon continuity

The Rebirth (US-only)

Voice actor: Neil Ross
And the winner of the 100 meter dash is...!

Crosshairs does quite the Ronald Reagan impression. Or maybe Jack Nicholson. He is very concerned with "the hubbub". He also has red eyes, a rarity for cartoon Autobots (Although his animation model has a visor, and red visors are a common practice in the cartoon).

Headmasters (Japan-only)

Voice actor: Hôchû Ôtsuka

3H Continuity

He was part of a crew of Autobot reinforcements led by Hot Spot with the unenviable task of rescuing Arcee, Daniel Witwicky, Wheelie and Doctor Fujiyama the Famous Scientist from Fujiyama's latest blunder. There were a lot of Nightbirds to kill off. Departure

Transformers: Armada

Crosshairs appears in a flashback of Cybertron's Great War along with one of the Aerialbots. This scene was also included in the Transformers Classics: Optimus Prime Vs. Megatron "Ultimate Battle" DVD.

IDW comics continuity

Crosshairs was stationed out of the Autobot Orbital Command Hub and was seen acting as navigator for the crew of the Ark-27. Whether this crew was a permanent unit like Prowl's or merely gathered from available Autobots on the Hub is uncertain. They transported Optimus Prime into battle with Thunderwing on Cybertron Stormbringer issue 2 and later brought him to Earth to follow up a lead on the Decepticons' resurrection. Stormbringer issue 4


Generation One

  • Crosshairs (Targetmaster, 1987)

  • Accessories: "Pinpointer" Targetmaster partner
Crosshairs transforms into a Cybertronic van-buggy-sorta-kinda-thing. As a Targetmaster, he can hold in his hand or mount on his vehicle-mode roof any Targetmaster gun (or any weapon that uses a 5mm peg). He was released with his partner, Pinpointer.
