Fictional biography

Box Bomber is an upside-down character. His top half comprises of B-Box, a mini-mecha-gorilla who likes to curiously explore his surroundings, using his increased sense of touch to feel his way through his world. Birdbomber looks to the skies, where he feels most at home, and hates the fact that he is responsible for keeping Box Bomber grounded in their combined mode. This dual-distraction means Box Bomber lacks attention when combiner, and this can be easily used against him as a weakness, making him slightly less than the sum of his parts. Luckily the one thing that completely focuses their attention with crystal clarity is the sight of the hated RoBot badge. With the enemy in their sights, they rely on an age old tactic of confuse and destroy, surrounding their opponent with a 360 degree barrage of noise before attacking at their leisure.

Comics

B-Box and Birdbomber appear in the Doubledeck pack-in comic story They Pull Me Back In as Cassettrons living with Transistor.
