Challenge of the Gobots
Loco is one of the soldiers of Cy-Kill.
Loco was a long-serving Renegade, being a member of the Renegades before Cy-Kill defected from the Guardians, as seen in a flashback in the episode "Et Tu, Cy-Kill."
Loco first appeared in a seeming animation error sitting among Guardians in the Challenge of the GoBots episode "Conquest of Earth." He was later seen fighting in the defense of the Renegades' fortress on GoBotron.
He was used sporadically after that, most notably helping the cyborg arms dealer Trident hijack a shipment of UNICOM materials.
Loco appeared in episode #52, "Renegade Carnival" where worked on the Renegades' unsuccessful attempt to kidnap the psychic Mira.
In the Eagle comic storyline, Loco was the only member of Stron-Domez' force to be completed at their short-lived factory in Birmingham. Soon after his activation, he was posted on guard duty, but the Security Forces Robo Machine Truck was able to sneak past him and free the captive human workforce. Loco was knocked out when the SF robot escaped. A few moments later, the Security Forces raided the factory, and Loco was gunned down, once again by Truck. He was deactivated, and his body presumably remains on board the Command Centre at the end of the serial.
