#876 TRANSFORMERS MICROMASTERS - BATTLE and OFFROAD PATROLS (1989)




Another two squads of Micromasters for my collection. 
 
The first one is the Battle Patrol, Note this includes four figures, some of them with movable parts that are sometimes missing. That is why it took me a little bit to complete all of them. I had three of them since a long time ago, but one of them was missing its cannon.

The members of this squad are (left to right): Big Shot, Sunrunner, Sidetrack and Flak.



BATTLE PATROL
  • Faction: Autobots
  • Subgroup: Micromasters
  • Function: Rapid Deployment Strike Force
  • Motto: "It is better to strike first, then to not strike at all!"
  • Bio: This tough-talking, battle-hardened foursome believes that the best offense is one that's fast, furious, and ferocious! They don't slow down until the enemy has been defeated and thrown into the scrap pile! With this in mind, Big Shot, Sidetrack, Flak, and Sunrunner use their brute force capabilities to hammer their Micromaster adversaries with devastating attacks! .

SIDETRACK

TUNRUNNER
  • Motto: "Rule the skies and the ground will bow before you."

 
The second patrol is the Offroad patrol. Its member are (left to right): Powertrain, Mudslinger, Highjump and Tote.



 This series is simpler in contruction, are usually complete, since they came with no cannons or small movable parts.
