Scrapper is a wizard at designing fortress and energy production plants for the Decepticons. Disguising his creations to blend unnoticed into the surrounding alien human landscapes comes almost as easily to him. He modestly shakes off the acclaim these talents inspire in his comrades. After all, he feels he is just fulfilling the requirements of his job. But overcoming an enemy Autobot and secreting his body in the foundation or structural skeleton of one of his buildings is another story. It is in such cases that Scrapper exhibits his true malevolent genius and relishes the admiration and praise it garners. Megatron considers him the most valuable of the Constructicons.
Abilities: In vehicular mode, Scrapper's shovel can slice through 12 inch thick carbon-steel plate and lift up to 30 tons. By adding on his single jet levitation wing he can fly at 60 mph for 250 miles. In robot mode he has immense strength and carries a laser pistol. When combined with fellow Constructicons, he serves as the right leg module and part of the giant robot known as Devastator.
Weaknesses: While flying, Scrapper is a very vulnerable target due to his lack of speed and maneuverability. His shovel is prone to metal stress fractures if overused.
