iGear

Rager is a third-party Transformers homage to the Generation 1 Autobot Huffer created by iGear.

According to his tech specs Rager is very strong, intelligent, tough, brave, and incredibly skilled. He is a bit also slower than average and his firepower is nothing special.

On the back of the instructions for Medical Specialist and Weapon Specialist are co-sells for Spray, Rager, Hench, UFO, Cogz, Duneraker, Veer and Bushwacker.

Rager was previewed at the Third Party Panel at TFcon 2011.[1]

Fictional biography

A fantastic construction engineer and could build pretty much anything he wanted too, but instead he'd rather complain about being in his situation. Too clever, too lonely, too short, too orange! He could have achieved anything in his time on his home planet but moaning was his primary habit and as such he accomplished very little. He once pulled a trailer for Faith Leader, and he still goes on about it 25 years later.
