Biography

Axe: "Got two on my tail. I can't shake 'em!"
Slammer: "I can't help you, Axe. I've got my own problem."
―Axe and Slammer during the Battle of Ryloth — (audio)Listen (file info)

After Techno Union Foreman Wat Tambor seized control of the planet Ryloth and its inhabitants, the Jedi Council dispatched General Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan, Commander Ahsoka Tano, to destroy the Separatist blockade surrounding the planet, under the command of Captain Mar Tuuk.

Ahsoka led a squadron, for the first time, taking command of Blue Squadron under the callsign Blue Leader. Slammer joined fellow pilots Axe, Kickback, Tucker and Swoop in his V-19 Torrent starfighter in fighting the advancing Vulture droids, and his squadron was able to cut a clear path to the lead ship. However, after Separatists reinforcements arrived out of hyperspace, Ahsoka disobeyed a direct order from both Admiral Yularen and Anakin to return and defend the Resolute. Tucker was shot down by a Vulture droid. Ahsoka finally complied, but by the time she returned to the Resolute, eight of her original ten clone pilots had died.

Behind the scenes

It is unclear whether Slammer was one of the clones who died in the Battle of Ryloth though the first pilot of Blue Squadron to die onscreen is most likely Slammer as the armor is identical. The episode guide for "Storm Over Ryloth" states that eight out of the ten clone pilots of Blue Squadron died, but only specifically identifies Axe and Tucker as being two of the eight.

Slammer was often seen when Autobot City looked like Metroplex's city mode, which was usually right before or after Metroplex transformed. When in tank mode, Slammer was accompanied by his partners Scamper and Six-Gun.

Slammer appeared alongside Scamper and Six-Gun when the latter interrogated the Dinobots and Sky Lynx over the recent theft of famous monuments. Thief in the Night.

Later, Slammer and Scamper responded to Swindle's intrusion of Metroplex, but were disabled when the Decepticon blew a hole in the floor, causing them to crash. The Ultimate Weapon
