He's My Little Deuce Scoop...

     to Quote the TFwiki:

"
If you're out of ammo and pinned by heavy enemy fire deep in the bowels of a slag swamp, Scoop is the robot you want on your side. He's possibly the best field infantry robot there is. A gung-ho fighter who uses cool-headed logic and battle-hardened tactics, he can outwit the enemy at every turn. Relentless in his resolve, he's always willing to help others out, no matter how dangerous the situation. Scoop is also strongly religious, and he believes in the buried legends regarding Primus written about him in His Covenant.
Scoop's greatest asset, his dedication-- both religious and job-related-- is also his greatest weakness. Since he pushes so hard and for so long, he's prone to overheating, especially if pushing his shovel past its limit. He's also often so engrossed in his spiritual literature that he likely won't see hints of betrayal around him unless his texts explicitly spell it out."

     This is another character I never had in the old days but I love the toy for both it's simplicity, and it's bright colors. He is a Targetmaster, which means that his guns are sentient, and more powerful. So he turns into a front end loader, and his guns turn into tiny men...really. And they can also peg together to form an even more powerful weapon.

     From what I saw, a lot of these generations Scoops had misalogned shoulders, causing the tranformation to not fit quite right. My second one turned out to be right and I took the first one back. His targetmaster guns are also particularly tempting to a conure with a taste for brandishing cybertronian weaponry(like mine), so if you pick this one up, watch the shoulders, and watch your bird





My guns are full of tinier men!
