Vinnie's car explodes
Game: Grand Theft Auto Advance
For: Vinnie
Location: Chinatown, Portland Island, Liberty City
Reward: $0
Unlocks: Twisted Metal

Getaway is a mission in Grand Theft Auto Advance, given to protagonist Mike by Vinnie from Chinatown, Portland Island, Liberty City.



Mike drives to Chinatown looking for Vinnie, so the two can finally leave Liberty City. He is then paged by Vinnie, saying that there is a change of plans and to meet him at Callahan Point. Mike drives to Callahan Point where he sees Vinnie's car explode. The police arrive, having been informed about the explosion, and Mike decides to lose the police attention and return to his hideout. He is then paged by 8-Ball, who informs Mike that the police are at his hideout and says that Mike should come to his home after he loses the police. Mike loses the police and drives to 8-Ball's. 8-Ball informs him that he will be investigating Vinnie's death by looking at what is left of Vinnie's car, primarily to see who is making bombs on his patch, and will page Mike when he finds something.


Mike: I'm here on time. Where the hell is Vinnie?

Vinnie (pager): Change of plans, Mike. Grab the getaway car from the hideout and meet me over in Callahan Point. Vinnie.

(Mike drives to Callahan Point, where he sees Vinnie's car blow up)

Mike: Oh my God! Vinnie!! NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Damn! Someone called the cops! I gotta lay low for a while. Better head back to the hideout.

8-Ball (pager): Mike, stay away from your hideout, the cops are looking for you. Come to my pad in Portland Beach but lose the cops first! 8-Ball.

(Mike loses the police and drives to 8-Balls home)

8-Ball: Sorry to hear about Vinnie, man. No one should go out like that. I have some ideas who might be behind it but it will take some time.

Mike: I still can't believe what just happened. What the hell am I going to do now? Vinnie had all our money.

8-Ball: You can do a few tasks for me until you straighten things out. Right now though, I need to bring what's left of that car back to my pad. I want to know who's making bombs on my turf. I'll page you when I come up with something.

Post Mission Pager Message

8-Ball: I figured out what to do with Vinnie, Mike. Come on back. 8-Ball.


There is no monetary reward for completing the mission. The mission Twisted Metal is unlocked by completing the mission.

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Getaway is an Autobot from the Generation One continuity family.
Magnum Foreshortening

Getaway is an escape artist without compare. He's cool-headed and logical under even the craziest, most dire circumstances and that lets him figure his way out of even the trickiest surprise or sneak attack. His reputation for cool-headed escapes is legendary, dating all the way back to the infamous Armornecking Incident on Cybertron. His Nebulan Powermaster partner is Rev.

Getaway has an escape kit concealed within a hidden compartment in his heel that he can reach even when bound.[1]

French name (Canada): Fugitif



Marvel Comics continuity

Note: Events from the UK-only comic stories are in italics.
Getaway will not stand for being miscolored! ...okay, yes, he will.

Getaway was part of the skeleton crew situated on board Steelhaven when Goldbug appropriated the ship to go to Nebulos in hopes of reviving Optimus Prime. They made contact with a friend of the old Nebulan Headmaster leader Galen named Hi-Q, but found that Nebulans had developed an acceptable level of robo-phobia after the Transformers nearly decimated their civilization last time. Hi-Q had led a research project which detonated a bomb in the atmosphere, spreading a molecular revisioning agent that converted all fuel supplies on Nebulos into a type poisonous to Transformer life. The poisoning passed the "acid test" when a pair of Decepticon vagabonds named Darkwing and Dreadwind came to Earth looking for Scorponok's army, and ended up poisoning themselves on local fuel and being rendered inert. Unfortunately, a jealous assistant named Hi-Test stole and modified a new form of bio-mechanical engineering, enabling him and his partner Throttle to binary-bond with the Decepticons and restore them to functionality, bringing Nebulos once more under Decepticon attack.

"Now, I will disarm the missiles with both hands tied behind my back..."
Hearing this story, Getaway and his fellow Autobots attempted to stop the Decepticons, but proved a poor match for these new Powermaster warriors in their weakened condition. Hi-Q and his staff came to respect the Autobots for their devotion to repairing their fallen leader and determination to protect the very people intent on poisoning them if they stayed on Nebulos. They chose to undergo the same Powermaster Process that Hi-Test did, and Getaway was binary-bonded to Rev, one of Hi-Q's aides. Through this transformation, the Autobots succeeded in restoring Prime to functionality and driving the Decepticons off of Nebulos. Their new Nebulan partners chose to return to Earth alongside Getaway, Prime and the others. People Power

Getaway was captured by the Decepticons aboard Scorponok's orbiting spacecraft where both he and Rev were imprisoned in energy manacles and thrown in the brig. Getaway, who had added a credit card (probably a Blackrock card) to his escape kit after hearing stories about humans using them to open locks, used the card to block one of the Energy Bars, which were tuned to fry metal, not plastic. Contorting his body, he hooked his shoulder wing through the gap he had created and touched the controls to shut off the beams.

Getaway retrieved the floppy disk the Decepticons had stolen and attempted to convince the A.B.C. missile computer not to launch a Decepticon smart bomb, unsuccessfully, before stealing an escape pod and returning to Earth. Though Getaway did not realize it at the time, His actions would indirectly save Optimus Prime's life. Prime Bomb!

Getaway was apparently killed during the Decepticons' assault on Klo, though presumably he would have almost immediately have been revived by the Last Autobot. End of the Road!

In an alternate future of 2009, Getaway was one of seven surviving Autobots on Earth, possibly in the universe. Alongside Guzzle and Chainclaw, he sacrificed his life to delay Scourge and Cyclonus, keeping them busy so that his comrades could infiltrate the Decepticon base. Rhythms of Darkness

Marvel UK future timelines

Getaway was seen among the Autobots in 2009, after the Time Wars altered the flow of history to make the Autobots the losers of the war for Cybertron. Limping their way back to Autobot City on Earth, the Autobots were sabotaged by one of their own and crashlanded on the planet. Hard. Those that survived then had to face Rodimus Prime, who had been driven mad by the evil essence of Unicron growing inside him. Getaway's smoldering corpse was seen among the ruins of the ship, although whether he died in the crash or was exterminated by his own leader is unclear. Shadow of Evil


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

Getaway 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 about ten minutes, though, Getaway and Swoop decided the fight was probably a "draw". Having apparently beaten some sense into each other, Optimus Prime agreed to allow Grimlock his autonomy, to lead "Earthforce" while he and the Ark's crew took off for space. Break-Away!

I want to tell you about the Transformers!

He made excellent bait. The War Within: The Age of Wrath

IDW comics continuity

Stuck in a trench with three complainers. Getaway is planning his escape even as we speak.

Shortly after the Thunderwing's first apocalyptic assault, the besieged Autobots prepared for the big push against their positions by the Decepticons. The injured Getaway was in a trench alongside Kup, Broadside and Huffer, waiting for Blaster's morale-boosting broadcast to the Autobot forces, a transmission that never came. Spotlight: Blaster


Generation One

  • Getaway (Powermaster, 1988)
    • Accessories: Rev Powermaster unit, Plasma-Shell Shotgun
I want to Getaway, I want to flyyyyy away...
Getaway transforms into a modified white Mazda RX-7 FC3S. For some reason the side windows are unpainted, depending on stickers for detail. His Plasma-Shell shotgun can be plugged onto the vehicle roof for storage. Attaching Rev (or any other Powermaster unit) into the Powermaster socket on the vehicle's hood unlocks Getaway's transformation sequence, though one can unlock the transformation simply by pressing down on the panel without Rev. Getaway's robot mode is mostly static for a relatively large toy, with articulation restricted to his arms.
This toy was sold in Japan as Lightfoot.
