BOTCON '97 EXCLUSIVE FIGURE: PACKRAT ALLEGIANCE: MAXIMAL FIRST APPEARANCE: BOTCON 97 COMIC FUNCTION: THIEF "Don't just take the goods, take the credit too." Packrat is the ultimate glory hound. His penchant for stealing is surpassed only by his desire to let everyone know he did it. The other Maximals are tolerant of his sneaky and deceptive ways only because he's an effective fighter, and because he causes the Predacons more trouble than he does his comrades. His standing with his teammates reached a crossroad with the Energeon armor incident. As Rhinox has said, "There may be hope for him yet."
BOTCON '97 EXCLUSIVE FIGURE: FRACTYL ALLEGIANCE: MAXIMAL FIRST APPEARANCE: BOTCON 97 COMIC FUNCTION: GEOCHEMIST "The Power of this planet is our salvation & our curse." While Megatron pushes him to be a warrior, Fractyl is more concerned with solving the problems caused by the strange planet's surplus of Energeon. The other Predacons either ignore him or ridicule his apparent fascination with the energy source, despite the fact that his work could provide them with the means for the ultimate victory over the Maximals. While his research has had only temporary success, he is confident that he will eventually resolve their recurring overload problems, thereby earning the others' respect.
