Heater prefers to take the path of least resistance. Legitimate work is too much of a hassle, so he made a living by shilling illegal pleasure pods; when the Nebulan authorities closed in, he escaped the rigors of prison by joining the Decepticons. Subjected to the Targetmaster process, Heater was binary-bonded with Quake and gained the ability to transform into a photon pistol. His laziness and criminal tendencies have not endeared him to Tiptop, Quake's other partner.
- Quake w/ Tiptop and Heater (Targetmaster, 1988)
Heater, like all the "double" Targetmaster Nebulans, is one of the smallest and least complicated Transformers. Fold the barrel away, and stand him up. He was released with the Decepticon Quake in 1988. No version of this character or mold was released in Japan.
