Talon is a Decepticon in Transformers:Aftermath. He is the team's primary aerial combatant, and is obsessed with destroying Thunder of the Autobots. He is quite intelligent, but not treacherous. He wants to reclaim the All Spark energy in order to impress Starscream and get his rank back. He is incredibly vain, and only concerned with obtaining power.
Talon was reassigned to the Empire-1 after he accidently shot Megatron in battle. Starscream saw potential in him, and had him reassigned rather than executed. In Book 1, he scans an F-22 Raptor as his alternate mode. In Book 2, he defends Boomer from Thunder, but is defeated when Thunder lets loose his Sonic-Boomer in the air.
Talon is armed with missiles and a Vulcan gun in both modes. His missiles are powerful enough to blow a hole through a skyscraper. For melee combat, he has blades in each arm. He is not very strong, but quite durable. He is able to achieve Mach 4 in vehicle mode, but is not as manueverable as Thunder.
Talon is mostly purple, with black wings. He has purple eyes. He looks like Starscream.
Behind the scenes
