wheels are made for crushing."
On the road, there is not a 16-ton hunk of rolling steel
more cold and cruel than Motormaster. He shows mercy to
none, least of all the unfortunate human drivers who
happen to be sharing a highway with him. He'll brutally
barrel through any traffic tie-up - he'd even roll over a
baby carriage if it were in his way. He doesn't care - he
knows nothing on wheels can survive a collision with him,
except, perhaps, Autobot Leader Optimus
Prime - and
Motormaster would give you an argument on that. In fact,
he looks forward to that very confrontation so he can
destroy Optimus and claim, without reservation, he is
"King of the Road." His Stunticon followers
tremble before his commands, which he gives with a
thundering voice that has the hollow, doom-laden tone of
an echo from a bottomless well. They hate him, but they
fear him too much to disobey him.
In truck mode, Motormaster is virtually unstoppable. At
his top speed of 140 mph, he can ram a 20 foot-thick
block of concrete and crumble it without cracking a
headlight. In robot mode, he has enormous strength and
carries an atom-smasher cannon, which shoots a
high-energy beam of protons that can shred all but the
densest materials. He combines with his fellow Stunticons
to form the giant robot Menasor.
Other than being highly fuel-consumptive, Motormaster has
no known weaknesses.
