Sledge is a member of the Decepticon Construction Team.
Sledge is a member of the Decepticon Construction Team; Sledge transforms into a scoop loader. He was is to combine with his team to form the giant robot Constructicon Maximus. In the Energon TV show, Sledge is a seemingly non-sentient drone commanded by team leader Steamhammer. As with all of the Energon combiner limbs, Sledge has a twin brother on his team - Bonecrusher. Their energon weapon is a claw. In the Japanese series, each member shares his name with a Generation 1 Constructicon - Sledge's name is Scrapper.
Construction Maximus was one of four combining Transformers sealed away in stasis beneath the surface of Cybertron to guard a hidden reservoir of Super Energon. Megatron, guided by Unicron, set out to search for it, and destroyed one of the immobile robots in his rage, only for the reservoir to then reveal itself. As the guardians awakened, Megatron immersed himself in the Super Energon to upgade himself into Galvatron, and Constructicon Maximus and Bruticus Maximus immediately swore fealty to Galvatron as the one who had awoken them. However, their "brother," Superion Maximus, refused, recognising Galvatron's evil and siding with the Autobots.
Constructicon Maximus added plenty of firepower to the Decepticons' side, and he and Bruticus Maximus had several clashes with the "traitorous" Superion Maximus, until the time for their final battle came, set against the backdrop of the struggle to stop the Unicron-possessed Galvatron out in space. Constructicon Maximus was deactivated by Superion Maximus, who then had his limbs destroyed by Bruticus Maximus, but transferred Constructicon Maximus's limbs to himself and used them to defeat Bruticus, along with a little help from the ghost of the "brother" Megatron had destroyed. Constructicon Maximus was voiced by Don Brown.
Although an Energon "More Than Meets The Eye" biography series was planned, it not released before the company went bankrupt. Art for Sledge was produced.
