The Retro Robot Radio podcast for September 14th, 2013 had a spotlight on Bushwacker's biography.[6]

Fictional biography

Bushwacker has a nasty habit of dying, in fact he has been registered offline more than any other 'bot in history. During one of the biggest battle royals during the great war, Bushwacker lasted only four seconds. Because of this morbid propensity, Bushwacker has a permanent sense of foreboding, thus his exile is self induced in an attempt to isolate himself from everything that could do him harm.
