Profile: Sizzle is a sharp-witted
and cunning master of the streets. In his capacity as a combat strategist,
he will stoop to any methods to ensnare the Autobots in his traps. He will

Abilities: Sizzle's vehicle mode
consists of a turbo-modified racing engine shoehorned into a specially-customized
lowrider body frame. As a vehicle, he can reach a maximum speed of 290 mph.

resistance to laser fire and prevents him from breaking up on drag strips.
In robot mode, Sizzle carries a serrated-edge, electrified light saber weapon.
