Profile: Meltdown is compassionate
to a fault. Where the other Autobots care about helping those in need,
particularly those who are inadvertantly caught up in the war with the
Decepticons, Meltdown takes it to a whole new level. He's been known
to spend hours trying to save a helpless kitten stuck in a tree while a ten-story
skyscraper goes up in flames. It's not that he doesn't care about
propertyit's just that he cares much, much more about saving lives.
In fact, he's so concerned about the welfare of others that he often
impedes Autobot attempts to engage the Decepticons in battle. He believes
in the Autobot cause, but he can't stand the thought of innocents being harmed
as a result of their struggle. "No war was ever won without lives being
lost," he's been known to say.
Abilities: As a fire engine,
Meltdown travels at 200 mph. His ladder can extend up to 100 feet,
assisting him invaluably in his rescue operations. His internal tanks
can carry up to 520 gallons of water. He also has two auxiliary
transformations that he uses during his rescue work. He can adapt
his fire truck mode into a car carrier configuration in order to safely transport
wounded Autobots, capable of reaching 230 mph due to its more aerodynamic
design. He can also change into a repair bay mode, equipped with mechanical
utility arms, diagnostic computers, and a full-service maintenance bay. In
robot mode, Meltdown uses two high-pressure water cannons. One of them
sprays salt water at 200° Fahrenheit, even hotter than the conventional
boiling point, and the other sprays cold salt water at -20° Farenheit,
lower than the normal freezing point. He combines with the other Rescuebots
to form Emancipator.
dedication is without question, but his value to the team is limited due
to his attempts at circumventing Autobot operations.
