From pachage tech spec...
Hunts enemy Maximals from altitudes of 20,000 feet. Uses infrared scanning sensors wired within its eyes to detect movement below, then zeroes in and launches powerful air to ground "sting" missiles to induce temporary paralysis. Buzz Saw can exit Earth's atmosphere at any time, but prefers hunting land based enemies where it has the advantage of flight. Known to gang up on victims with its evil partner, the wicked Waspinator.
Profile: Buzz Saw likes to be the center of attention. He brags about his aerial abilities to any who will listen, Predacon or Maximal. He keeps track of his accomplishments, even taking part of his enemies when he defeats them. He keeps proof of these accomplishments on a shelf like trophies. The other Predacons make fun of him, but he relishes in the attention. What really drives his fellow Predacons mad is the amount of gossiping that he does. The extent of these stories is audacious, to the point where they almost have to believe him. And he crafts proof of his stories, often doctoring aerial photos to show the others. When he is caught in a lie, he denies it completely. He claims that he was taken out of context, or misunderstood. His excuses are almost as elaborate as his implications. The only reason he is kept by his Predacon commanders is for his aerial abilities. He is possibly the fastest Transformer on Earth, actually capable of terminal velocity. He is also able to fly through difficult turns and rise and drops. He likes to get Maximals chasing him and toys with them. He goes just fast enough to show off without being caught. He imagines the Maximals talking about him at their base. It has been said by some Predacon commanders that Buzz Saw actually believes his own delusions.
Abilities: Uses infrared scanning sensors wired within his eyes to detect movement below. Also capable of exiting Earth's atmosphere. Air-to-ground "sting" missiles induce temporary paralysis upon impact.
Weaknesses: Buzz Saw cares more about himself than the Predacon cause. It is hard to motivate him without feeding his ego.
