Transformers: Generation 2

Dirtbag is a member of the Decepticon Autorollers who turns into a dump truck. [1]

Fictional biography

Carries massive amounts of munitions into battle to support Decepticon troops. If Autobots begin to achieve victory, he instantly converts into robot warrior mode to join the fight. Armed with a devastating double-shot missile launcher and crusher claw, he's a formidable fighter despite lack of agility or speed. Titanium/steel composite armor allows resistance to laser fire - but also hinders overall combat efficiency.
