Adam (born: September 30, 2001 [age 19]), better known online as Diamondbolt, is an Australian YouTuber who mostly revolves around making content about TV and video games. Before this he also made Ruined Forevers, Q&As, and did mostly Transformers videos.
Diamondbolt has been a fan of Transformers ever since his parents bought him two Transformers toys (An Optimus and a Camo coloured Megatron) and a DVD summarising the Unicron trilogy. He has a notably large collection of Transformer toys. Despite this (as of 2015), he has a larger Bionicle and Hero Factory collection. The aforementioned franchises and Pokemon are his main interests along with some other animes such as Evangelion and Gundam.
The Diamondbolt Channel was created on the 29th of September 2014 and his first video was a test video uploaded the same day titled 'Legendary Pokemon List'. His first Transformers related video was uploaded 8th of November 2014 and was titled 'Transformers: Different Continuity Appearances Part 1'. Since, he has since uploaded a variety of different videos. The different types are as shown below. He's also collaborated with some of his friends in the past. In 2017 Diamondbolt made a goal to include more non Transformers related videos in order to broaden his horizons. On April 29th 2017, Diamondbolt uploaded his first video featuring his face in his 6th Q&A video. After that there was a gradual shift away from transformers content until May 8, 2018 when he announced big changes to the channel. He is now uploading content about TV and videos games, reaching out to every corner of pop-culture.
