Marvel Comics continuity
The Firecons acted as jailers for the Decepticons on Cybertron. They took great glee in putting down an Autobot attempt at rebellion, before sending three Autobots off across the space bridge to be used as test fodder.
The Firecons were sent to Earth to attempt to pursuade Galvatron to form an alliance with the Decepticons on Cybertron. On Earth they engaged in battle with the Sparkabots (referred to here as the Sparkler Mini-Bots) who had been sent to Earth by Springer to keep watch on Galvatron. Their battle was interrupted by Galvatron himself who rejected the Firecons offer. The Firecons presumably returned to Cybertron afterwards.
The Firecons were still with the main Decepticon force after the epic battle with Unicron. During the invasion of Klo, Sparkstalker was accidentally incinerated by Cindersaur.

- Sold carded for $3 each, the Firecons are extremely simple toys. Like their Autobot counterparts, the toys feature a friction-motor that causes "cold" sparks to shoot from a section of the toy's alternate mode (the mouth, in the case of the Firecons) as well as propelling the toy forward on smooth surfaces.
