    Typical...
    The ebay listing was selling two colouring books, with just a couple of sample images of what is inside, and since this image was next to the image of Decepticon Patrol (instead of The Deadly Fuel Shortage), I saved the image of that cover at a guess.

    Here... this was the other one, from where that image was *actually* from, and was the one that actually caught my attention because of how Sideswipe is drawn in robot mode...

    You were close. This particular cover always confused me as it’s a page out of the Bumblebee’s Dangerous Mission colouring book. The other cover is actually more appropriate for the story within.

    I sometimes wonder why so many others don’t have a copy of all these still in their collection. I think the answer is I’m a hoarder.

    So far the two in print references to Spin-Out as a name are this book and the Marvel Age article that previewed the original mini-series. Still looking for more.

    If you start asking questions like that about the colouring books you'll be here all day. I think I coloured that truck as Huffer once. On another page I coloured one of multiple Brawns as Outback.

    The listing for Spinout on TakaraTomyMall, has been updated with some character art and a bio.... which someone on TFW has translated into this...

    Rescue Assault Spinout, a homage from Diaclone, the precursor of Transformers, joins the MP series!
    The color palette, dimensions, and specifications are modeled directly after Car Robot NO.1 Countach LP500S type from Diaclone.
    A completely new Masterpiece branded character transforms from the Lamborghini “Supercar” LP500S to Rescue Assault team member, Spinout!
    The specific variations of the original Diaclone figure have been faithfully reproduced, while maintaining the excellent articulation and vehicle mode features that were already exhibited by Sunstreaker and Cordon.
    The concept of the original Car Robot NO.1 Countach LP500S type has been made into a reality with a product that strongly adheres to the modernization of Transformers.


    MP-39+ Autobot Rescue Assault Spinout
    CYBERTRON ASSAULT & RESCUE SPINOUT

    Role:
    Assault Rescuer
    Motto: “Trivial details aren’t suitable for extended history.”


    Profile: Spinout was originally an unconscious existence as a combat machine (Car Robot) in another dimension, but was given life by an ancient computer on Cybertron and became a cognizant lifeform. Although Spinout is passionate and zealous for his fellow Autobots, he shows strong loyalty and obedience to humans. He clearly remembers his previous life as a war machine dependent on humans and has internal anxiety about fighting without a pilot.
    Spinout’s vehicle form, the Lamborghini Countach LP500S, is strongly reminiscent of his mysterious and paradoxical origin.


    Extended Bio: [Private recordings of Delta Magnus]: Our rushed operation to secure the remote space facility of Diadem saved vast amounts of data recordings of ancient Cybertron, but it couldn’t have come at worse costs. The facility was severely damaged by the fierce battle between Decepticons and Quintessons, and much valuable information was lost. Fortunately, I was able to recover Cordon’s memory files, but he refused to reinstall them. So, that aside, ultimately what we got… was something so completely unexpected that shakes the very history of Cybertron! A bot by the name of Spinout was discovered in the depths of Diadem. He was found in a cryo-chamber and must have been resting for the past 10 million years. In simpler terms, we found an Autobot, that has an Earth alt mode from millions of years ago! What the hell is that?!? According to the data files of Anterior Zeta on Diadem, Spinout was originally nothing more than an unwitting machine from a different Earth dimension. Nothing more than some detritus cast into our spacetime continuum. Hmm. Diaclone… That is the name of the force that Spinout belonged to. Zeta, who analyzed the anomaly, seemed to have been fascinated by the battles between the Diaclone and their enemies, the Waruders. Was Zeta losing his mind by this time? Perhaps he was infected by some alien force? I can’t be certain… Anyway, Zeta took extreme measures to lead the Autobots to Dialcone’s missions in hopes of taking command. Upon discovering the true threat of the Waruders, he created a team of professionals whose highest priority was the extermination of the Waruders, and he programmed them to infiltrate a vast array of systems via a repair network. It’s hard to believe there was such meddling in our people’s ancestry, but there are already examples. I’m speaking of the Blue Bluestreak incident, in which Bluestreak had a run in with the Waruder Insectorobos. We must take extreme measures to halt their infiltration!


    If the threat of an evil Waruder invasion was immediate I know that Spinout would fight on our side. But I think it should be done out of a sense of personal freedom; not one of controlled obedience.

    I prefer the Collector's Club characterisation.

    Basically he's a 'fuel preparation specialist' with some pretty bad luck. A mildly-depressed Autobot cook works way better for the (not very serious) Odieverse than a dimensionally-misplaced Diaclone-come-to-life.

    I do like that he started out as a battle machine and doesn't feel confident fighting without a pilot, but I feel they could have somehow worked that in without making him from Earth in another dimension. Maybe he could have been built by humans (in this dimension) and given sentience later.
