Gears is anti-social, a self-proclaimed misfit. Finds
fault in everything and everyone. Acts this way to help cheer others
up as they try to cheer him up. Tremendous strength and endurances.
Totes heavy loads long distances. Launches to height of 20 miles,
floats down on compressed air. Becomes an easy target due to limited
maneuverability. Can detect infrared.
Gears was available without (1984) or with a rub symbol (1985).
