Charger is a Decepticon in the Generation 1 continuity family.

More like 'Charge of the BRIGHT Brigade' am-i-rite!?!

Charger's function of "Flamethrower" suits him well. He loves the smell of burning Autobot in the morning. He's hot-tempered, with a hair-trigger. Even when not enraged, this Action Master is introverted and unsociable. He enjoys melting his enemies into pools of molten metal, but won't even take part in a mission unless there's something in it for him. He spends his spare time studying how to harness the energy emitted from a burning meteor. His Action Master partner is Fire Beast.

Note: Charger's function, motto, Tech Specs, and personality description are all cribbed from the Dinobot Slag. Whether they're meant to be the same character, have any connection, or if the UK copy writers just got lazy, is unknown. The bit about the meteor is possibly a reference to the G1 Cartoon episode "War of the Dinobots."
