They're actually both looking for characterization.
Let's see what you can see...

This article is in need of images.

Slow Poke is an Autobot Micromaster from the Generation One continuity family.

Mi nombre is Slow Poke Rodriguez...

Slow Poke of the Monster Truck Patrol is right next to Big Hauler in the grumbling negativity department, and like him, doesn't let it get in his way. Slow Poke utterly refuses to give up, even when he probably should.

French name (Canada): Lambin


Dreamwave comics continuity

I want to tell you about the Transformers!

This character article is a stub and is missing information on their fictional appearances. You can help Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki by expanding it.


Generation One

  • Monster Truck Patrol (Micromaster Patrol, 1990)

Slow...And...Steady... OH FORGET THIS!

Slow Poke transforms into a pickup truck of undetermined model with oversized "monster truck" tires and a tow-hook arm mounted on the back. In comparison to Hydraulic and Big Hauler, his robot mode is inverted, with the front forming his legs and the rear his upper torso. He was only available in a Micromaster four-pack with his teammates Big Hauler, Heavy Tread and Hydraulic.

Return of Convoy

  • Big Truck Team (Micro Trailer Team, 1991)
  • Japanese ID number: C-361
The Monster Truck Patrol was released in Japan with no discernible differences during Return of Convoy. However, the team did come with Micro Trailer #1.


  • Slow Poke and Big Hauler's bios from the Dreamwave More Than Meets The Eye encyclopedia are incredibly similar, only Slow Poke's is written from the viewpoint of Hydraulic. Error or intent?
