Explanation of the conversion: I decided to add a hand laser to allow Guzzle a weapon in robot form. Guzzle can only use his sparks to accelerate or as a weapon in vehicle mode. He can only use his hand laser in robot mode.

Guzzle History: Not trying is the worst crime as far as Guzzle is concerned. He started his combat career as a green soldier in the Cybertonian city-state of Polyhex, listening disapprovingly as other reluctant Autobots bemoaned thier inexperience as warriors. To this day, Guzzle looks at such self-pity as a dangerous luxury. While those worried Autobots became paralyzed by fear in the face of the fierce Decepticon assaults and thus became casualities, Guzzle was concentrating on figuring out what he had to do in order to survive. He became a battle-tested veteran who hungers to keep testing his mettle in combat. His hard-edged, no-nonsense attitude doesn't make him many friends, but he is respected for his honesty and unpretentious attitude. Guzzle knows that he's not the best soldier in the Autobot army, but it's not for lack of trying.

Trivia: Guzzle shouldn't be confused with the Firecon named Cindersaur, who is called Guzzle in the Japanese release of the toys.

Guzzle Powers: Guzzle has above average strength and courage. Guzzle can change from robot form to that of a Challanger main battle tank. He can travel at 40 mph. He has telescopic vision and can thread a washer from 2.5 miles with a blast from his plasma cannon. Flame exhaust in tank mode can be used as a weapon which incinerates on contact or to double his land speed for short distances. Guzzle sometimes utilizes a standard Autobot jet pack.

Weaknesses: Guzzle's hunger for combat is only equalled by his hunger for fuel. He isn't very agile in either form.
