The Stormtroopers are a sub-group of Decepticons from the Transformers series.

Members[edit]

Aquablast[edit]

Stormtrooper engineer. A frightening combination of ultra practical mind and bloodthirsty streak. The workings of an engine is like poetry to him. Can fix anything - under the most difficult conditions. As a vehicle, screams into battle with water fire power. As a robot, it makes him a force to be wary of. Motto: "Listen! That's the music of one of my super-tuned, ultra-hot engines! And think what terror it must strike in the hearts of those Autobot cowards..."

Drench[edit]

Stormtrooper Coordinator. A bully, a tyrant and universally hated. Must have his own way at all times or takes hideous revenge. But indispensable at coordinating the unit with grim efficiency. As a car, long and low with cunningly concealed water firing capabilities. As a robot this converts to extra-reach firing power. Motto: "A well run campaign is my greatest pleasure."

Hydradread[edit]

Stormtrooper Scientific Advisor. A weirdly twisted mind. He devises hideous attack methods that can astonish even the most veteran Decepticons. Always in a world of his own, plotting something horrible. As a car, surprises with fast-action water power. Transforms into an equally well-armed attacking robot. Motto: "Let me study the battle plans. I'll think up something really unpleasant - and then make it even nastier."

Rage[edit]

Rage is the leader of the Stormtroopers, a sub-group of Decepticons. He delights in doom and destruction, and rules through fear. Motto: "If you're not living in the thick of the action - you're not living."

Marvel Comics[edit]

In the Marvel UK exclusive Genertation 2 story "War Zone", Rage and the Stormtroopers were dispatched to Earth by Bludgeon to draw the attention of Optimus Prime.[1]

Fun Publications[edit]

Rage appears in the story Flames of Yesterday by Fun Publications. On the planet Cybertron, 9 million years ago, Rage made his bid to become a powerful leader among the Decepticons using his followers Hydradread, Drench, Aquablast and others.[2][3]
