Faction: Autobot G.I. Joe
Appearance: (Editor's note: Due to the distinct lack in GI Joe and Transformers models I'm going to have to rely on a description until I can get a model made.)
Alt mode: He transforms into a V.A.M.P. Jeep, a real world equivalent would be the Lamborghini Cheetah. His deco is a combination of red, white, and blue.
Weapons: His weapon of choice is a double barreled machine gun, but he does have a sharpened shovel that is wonderful for smashing someone across the head.
Abilities: His alt mode's equipment includes a spare fuel reserve which can come in handy, along with a holographic projector affixed to the bottom. He's also got a port for minicons although his previous partner ended up stuck back on Earth when he was captured.
When paired with a minicon he has the ability to unleash a devestating attack, by powering up a multitude of flip out guns and fire arms all at once, becoming a literal one bot army.
He can powerlinx with other cybertronians, although typically plane/jet formers end up as wings. Other bots typically end up as either using the gun heavy bot as power armor, or end up some form of power armor themselves. Powerlinxing typically ends up like that...
Bio: During the war Clutchfire found himself stuck in a escape pod near Earth. He crash landed and ended up being recovered by the C.O.B.R.A. organization where he lay dormant and was studied. In a turn of events however, G.I. Joe operatives raided the facility and took the Cybertronian to their own labs. This is when he was powered on, and eventually became part of one of the Attack Squads later on when the rest of the Transformers started the war on Earth. When minicons were thrown into the mix he adopted a smaller dune buggy bot who shared his enthusiasm for explosions and good firearms. When he was captured for the event he ended up getting knocked on the head, his old injuries from the war resurfacing and laying him out cold...till now of course.
