Motto: "The McCullen clan has a long history of working with anyone who can pay the price for what they desire. I will allow SHOCKWAVE to pursue his plans - up until they interfere with mine, and then I will deal with him myself."
DESTRO is a major supplier and advisor to the COBRA organization, but he also pursues his won diabolical aims. He makes a deal with the DECEPTICON SHOCKWAVE that benefits them both. He sells ENERGON cubes - so valuable to TRANSFORMERS - to SHOCKWAVE for a huge amount of cash, which will fund his nefarious schemes to acquire even more wealth and power.
No variations of Destro (v28) are known to exist.
Destro (version 28) was created using the head of Destro (v27) (2011), the torso, waist, and upper legs of Dusty (v14) (2010), the lower legs of Cobra Trooper (v16) (2011), and the arms of Techno-Viper (v3) (2011).
