Neon, called Chief by many, is an old and wise Autobot, who transforms into a Hummer H2. He has a thing for ancient technology on Earth, and likes to solve many mysteries. Even now, in his older years, he keeps hold of a young, bold personality.
In 1975, Neon detected the presence of Decepticons on earth. Although it would be another 10 years before the autobots believed him, he knew the threat straight away. He was in the Near-terra Battle, and downed a few decepticon ships.
