Profile: Chop Shop is so sly and skilled that his comrades still haven’t recognized his secret Regularly finding their quarters ransacked. many Decepticons openly wonder what daring Autobot manages to routinely infiltrate their base and take their valuables. Chop Shop wonders out loud right along with them but inside he’s always laughing—he’s the unrepentant kleptomaniac responsible The other Decepticons don’t suspect him because he’s even compelled to take his own stuff, so it looks like he was victimized too! He always has to come up with new excuses on the fly for why he’s later found using someone else’s missing rifle or Energon dispenser, but the thrill of getting caught only makes it that much more exciting for Chop Shop The greater the challenge of getting something, the more the greedy and daring Chop Shop wants to take it for himself
