I do lots of creative writing and have even written a few books. I often make up stories to go along with some of my custom figures as I work on them, since custom figures is my job which I do at home while taking care of my 3 daughters. In the Radicons section here at TFW people are generally looking at custom figures, not there to read fan-fics, so I thought I'd post the story that goes with the new Junkion custom set I am doing here. I tried to keep it very short for what it is. Hope you guys enjoy! Please let me know what ya think. The Junkion origin story is followed by bios for the individual characters involved in the custom set. The Origin of The Junkions In the first days of the betrayal by Megatron and his Decepticon forces that started the great war, a crew of waste disposal workers were away on the trash barge Delantas. Recieving the warning from cybertron that it was not safe to come home, they landed the ship at their stop, the planet of junk, far away from cybertronian space. They never heard back from cybertron, but supplies eventually dwindled and after several years, there was no choice but to return home. The Delantus had sat in mountains of garbage for a bit too long. It had become infected with strange alien rust variations that damaged the lower hull, so before leaving the gravatational field of the junk planet, the Delantus experienced a sudden power failure that brought it crashing back to the surface. The Delantus' power came back online moments before its crash, and its computer quickly sent out the program override signal to put all bots onboard in emergency stasis, as ships of that era often did. This provided their sparks with much greater protection, prevented program trauma from limb loss or worse, and copied their memory banks to be restored later in case of head trauma or loss. Delantus' crew was made up of around 90 worker bots, nearly 25 expert mechanics, and 12 medical specialists. Many were killed in the horrific crash, the workers who resided in the lower decks taking the most casualties by far. Most of those who survived, were badly damaged. Though the ship's computer and backup power supply was well enough protected to survive the crash, it was damaged over the next several thousand years by the alien junk rust. On the bright side, that same rust problem eventually caused the ship to break in half, jolting the computer back to life. The ship's computer began to deploy the few functioning repair drones and reactivated all survivors onboard. Unfortunately however, it also malfunctioned severely during the memory restore process. Instead of only restoring certain bots, it did a full system restore on all survivors, but with saved memory data that had multiple corrupted file sections. Although every bot seemed to know how to communicate on a very basic level and retained his or her specialty training knowledge, none could remember who they were or where they came from. Over the next several millenium, the robots formed a very functional society, calling themselves Junkions. They learned to multiply using the junk parts dumped by multiple alien species that covered their world and a sacred spark splitting process that most cybertronians would say was impossible. Being transformers, the Junkions had a built in instinct to hide and take disguises, keeping their presence on the planet of Junk mostly unknown. In time, the Junkions found ways to retrieve several types of data transmission waves from lightyears away. It was during the age of television from earth, that the Junkions truly refined their communication skills, and found a source of infinate entertainment that changed their culture forever. Occasionally thorought the years, an advanced alien race known as the quintessons would send machines, both flying and ground based, which would kidnap Junkions to be disected and studied. This was when the Junkions started creating weapons, changed most of their alt forms to motorcycles similar to what they had seen on earth TV shows, and began to build a new ship. What finally made the quintessons leave the Junkions alone though, was the Junkion's elite warrior combined form, Junkload Van Dam. Scrapheap Scrapheap was always great at finding that special part in the endless sea of junk he and his Junkion brothers called home, but he was never very well liked by any of them until he found the salvagable lower half of an ancient cybertronian guardian sentinel. Though he has always refused to be part of the TV talking scene and usually cames across as arogant, he truly proved his value by adapting the sentinel parts with Autobot combiner tech to create a powerful frame for the greatest Junkion warriors to merge into, himself included of course. Tang One of the few female Junkions, Tang always felt the need to prove herself as not only equal to her fellow Junkions, but better. Not only can she recite over 2000 1980's earth TV commercials word for word, but she is also the fastest bike on the Planet of Junk and a top notch fighter. Many of the male Junkions very much wish to court her, and she uses that to get excellent junk gifts regularly. It is well known to her fan club that she most enjoys high tech upgrade parts for her own body. Tang's heart belongs only to one Junkion though, and Scrapheap doesn't even know it... Nancy Nancy is Wreck Gar's closest companion. They spend hours a night watching their favorite earth TV shows together, and have fought side by side against any threat to their Planet of Junk for hundreds of years. Though Nancy may not be the best or fastest warrior in the Junkion ranks, she can certainly hold her own. Wreck Gar chose her to be in team Junkload because he knows her best comes out when she is competitive, and she is always competitive with her blue-eyed friendly rival, Tang. Ajax Ajax is the youngest of Wreck Gar's "Junkload" defense team, and the token witty loudmouth. He uses so many lines from old mobster movies that it pretty much makes up his character. 1950s earth ganster is not only his primary way of speaking though. Ajax has also been known to cheat in games, horde valuable parts to swindle needy bots later, demand a cut from vendor bots for "protection", and even steal. He is very skilled at his crafts however and has proven more than once to have a good spark when it counts, so Wreck Gar took him under his wing in hopes of one day making a good bot out of him. Ajax quickly became like a son to both Wreck Gar and Nancy. He is known now more for his jokes and gags, particularly his ability to transform his skid-plate into a good likeness of Wreck Gar's face. Seagal Seagal has studied and practiced movie martial arts for over 30 years. Not only has he mastered the many styles of countless TV screen fighting legends, including Jackie Chan, Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee, Stalone, and Swartzennegger, but he has added a good bit to those styles. He kind of had to add to them though, since some of the fighting moves proved quite ineffective in real life. He now teaches his arts to younger Junkions, and is definately "Hard to Kill". Knievel Junkions love to party, and love to hold games such as Wreck gar's trivia shows, Seagal's Bloodsport competition, and the Dare to be Stupid stunt show, which Knievel is the star and master of. There isn't a junkion bot alive that can out maneuver him or replicate his wild air tricks. There are also few who could survive some of the explosive crashes he has gotten himself into while mastering such stunts. Wreck Gar Leader of the Junkions. You know this guy well enough...
