Laserbeak

The Decepticon's interrogator. Laserbeak takes a sadistic pleasure in his work as he tortures captive Autobots with his lasers, slowly carving them into pieces to coerce them into divulging everything they know. When satisfied that his Autobot prisoner has no more useful data to "share", Laserbeak destroys him. Laserbeak also serves as the Decepticons' "mop-up" after a victorious battle - it's his job to prowl the airways above the battlefield, pouncing on and finishing off any damaged, but still functioning, Autobots he finds littered among the dead - but only after interrogating them of course. While Laserbeak relishes a situation where his enemy is at his mercy and cannot fight back, he is a complete coward in a true battle and can seldom be counted on by his fellow Decepticons in a firefight. If Laserbeak perceives that the odds are not in his favor or that he is in any danger, he will flee. This cowardice has earned Laserbeak the enmity of many of his Decepticon comrades, especially those that have been injured because he failed to provide them with air support.

In condor mode, Laserbeak attacks with his twin independently-controlled precision laser rifles, but usually from great distances away from his target where he feels he's safe - only when his Autobot enemies are totally incapacitated by his fire will the cowardly Laserbeak move in for the kill. Laserbeak transforms into a cassette tape, but generally only does so to hide himself from superior Autobot threats he can't outfly.

My Laserbeak figure is based more on how he appears in the Transformers cartoon/comic than on the toy. It doesn't transform.
