Let's see what you can see...

This article is in need of images.

Specifics: Toy; train mode
Shōki is an Autobot from the Headmasters portion of the Generation One continuity family.
Went so fast, he left his feet behind.

Shōki (ショウキ) is the Trainbots' leader, and elder brother to Yukikaze. He's among the fastest of the team, especially when he's linked to Yukikaze in train mode. Unfortunately, he's also occasionally brash and irresponsible in his duties.

Dreamwave Generation One comics

Shōki (or someone who looks a lot like him) was part of a big crowd of unhappy Cybertronians who made Prowl look really stupid when he tried to make a speech assuring them that everything would be okay after the collapse of Shockwave's supposedly-benevolent rule. Skyfire

Toys

The Headmasters

  • Shōki (Trainbot, 1987)
    • Japanese ID number: C-126
    • Accessories: "Mach laser" pistol, 3 "joint parts" connectors, Raiden breast panel, Raiden waist panel
Getsuei transforms into a Tōkaidō/Type 0 Series Shinkansen bullet train. He also forms the upper torso of the team's combined mode Raiden.
  • Raiden (Gift set, 1987)
The entire Trainbot team was sold both as individuals and in a six-bot Raiden gift-set. All six toys in this set were identical to their individual releases.
  • Raiden (TF Jr set, 1987)
An exceedingly simplified version of the entire Trainbot team was made available as part of the Transformer Jr series. Each individual has a (stumpy) representation of their larger robot modes, and could combine to form a stumpy Raiden.

Zone

  • Shōki (Trainbot, 1990)
    • Japanese ID number: C-355
    • Accessories: "Mach laser" pistol, 3 "joint parts" connectors, Raiden breast panel, Raiden waist panel
The Trainbots were re-released during Zone in new packaging, and only as individuals, never in a box set. The toys are identical to their original Headmasters incarnations.

Trivia

  • Though it is a little tricky to tell the true meaning of Shōki's name since it is "spelled" in phonetic katakana rather than kanji, it most likely comes from a type of Japanese WWII fighter plane.
  • The Trainbots are all originally Diaclone toys, which came in two different color schemes. It's also worth noting that there are several mold differences between the Diaclone and Transformers versions. Shouki is the most changed of all, though it's by the addition of the "waist plate" accessory for Raiden, which was not present in the Diaclone versions. The Transformers releases also lost the Diaclone pilots (of course) and the little plastic tracks for the trains to ride on.
