Oil Slick is the name of a Decepticon. Very little is known about this Decepticon at the moment, except for the fact that he transforms into a motorcycle (which also has a ram-head on it), and is armed with a chain weapon. His existence first came to light when his toy was displayed at Toy Fair 2007.[6]. He would later be worked into the Animated series.

Pictures of Oil Slick were released on the internet in February 2008. [7]

Animated series

Oil Slick appeared in the season 3 episode "Transwarped", where he was a part of Strika's Team Chaar. He poured out an oil slick that caused Brawn and Ironhide to spin out of control, setting them up for the saboteur Cyclonus to defeat, and used the show's version of the Cosmic Rust to enrust Rodimus Prime. A virtual reality version of Oil Slick briefly appeared in the episode "Human Error, part one."
