The universe exists to serve me.
Not since the days of the Dark God, Unicron, has the universe felt such a presence of evil. Once a lowly Predacon warrior, Shokaract stumbled upon the life force of the Dark God during a failed recon mission. Fashioning a housing for this Dark Essence, Shokaract called it his Decepticon Matrix of Conquest. Serving as a mockery of the Autobot Matrix of Leadership, the vessel that destroyed Unicron in 2005, the mere mention of this Matrix of Conquest would instill fear into the Spark of every Transformer for centuries to come. Shokaract's goal is frighteningly simple - the subjugation of the entire universe. His only opposition is pockets of resistance spread throughout the galaxy, attacking his Herald-led armies at every opportunity. With the Matrix of Conquest in his possession, Shokaract has no weakness.
Please be aware that this is not a review, as I have never had this figure in hand. The pictures were provided by fellow TF-Fan Morgan Sowa and I have reviewed other versions of this toy, which are are linked below for reference.
Remarks: Shokaract is a straight-up repaint of Beast Wars Rampage created by 3H Productions and sold exclusively at the 2000 Botcon convention. He also served as the main villain of the "Omega Point" storyline that ran through most of 3H's conventions and exclusives. Shokaract had once been a lowly Predacon warrior (either named "Hunter" or serving as a hunter), who came upon the life force of Unicron, hidden away on Earth. He forged this power into a Matrix of Conquest and became the most powerful Transformer of all time, easily conquering the universe. When the Beast Warriors time travel to ancient Earth put the source of his power in danger, Shokaract sent his heralds into the past to preserve it. When that didn't work, he went himself, but that didn't work, either. Unicron's life force was destroyed before Hunter could find it, thus Shokaract was wiped from the time stream.
The figure itself is among the rarest and most expensive of the early Botcon exclusives, not least because it contains gold plastic parts and is thus prone to breaking apart. Here's hoping we'll get a Beast Wars Rampage in one of the upcoming Generations lines, so we can have a Shokaract repaint as well.
