Checkpoint is the name of three fictional characters in the Transformers series.

Transformers Energon

Template:Infobox character Checkpoint was a part of an Autobot S.W.A.T. team along with Prowl who he was sold with. Checkpoint is a mainly black and white six-wheeled futuristic truck of a fictional make. He is able to 'powerlinx' with any other Powerlinx toy from Energon. His hand-held weapon is a missile launcher. Checkpoint does not have an official bio.


Dreamwave Productions

Although the Dreamwave Energon comic series was canceled due to the closure of Dreamwave Productions, the synopsis of several unreleased comics was released online by Simon Furman in 2010.

Checkpoint was one of four Autobots who manned Mars Base on Mars. He was forced to defend the base when Alpha Quintesson sent the Four Horsemen to attack it in hopes of forcing the Autobots to lower Earth's planetary defense shield so they could send reinforcements. Just as planned, the defense shield was lowered and Omega Supreme was sent to Mars to assist. Checkpoint succeeded in defeating the Horsemen and saving the Autobots at Mars.

Fun Publications

Checkpoint appeared in the text story from Fun Publications called Force of Habit. This story explained where he was during the events of the Cybertron story. Ultra Magnus was the commander of various Autobot ships sent to other planets in search for the Cyber Planet Keys. Longrack served as captain of the Spanner which was sent to Delta Draconis. Among the ship's crew were Armorhide, Blurr and Checkpoint.[1]

  • Cybertron Mini-Con Checkpoint (2006)
Checkpoint is a repaint of the Transformers Armada character Prowl. He came packaged with the Decepticon aligned Mini-Con Sunstorm.[5]


Shattered Glass

Template:Infobox character Shattered Glass Checkpoint was created from the dying body of Shattered Glass Prowl by a good fragment of Unicron as an agent of truth and enlightenment. His patrolmen are the Shattered Glass Autotroopers.

Fun Publications

Checkpoint was created when a good fragment of Unicron approached the defeated Optimus Prime and several of his dying Autobots with an offer of enlightenment. Prowl was reformatted into Checkpoint and dubbed the Guardian. He was given two patrolmen called the Autotroopers, made from the dying remains of Ratchet and Inferno. They were then transported to Cybertron where they defeated Rodimus Prime and his Autobot forces.


Although no toy for Shattered Glass Checkpoint exists, his body design is based on Combiner War First Aid, with the head of Combiner Wars Prowl.
