One of Cy-Kill's loyal henchmen, Geeper-Creeper is a sneak and a bully who delights in causing as much pain as he can—even to his allies, if he can get a good laugh out of it. Renegades and Guardians alike avoid him, because they all agree: he gives them the creeps!

A long-serving Renegade, Geeper-Creeper fought in the first Renegade Revolt. Shortly after it failed he joined Crasher and Cop-Tur on a raid at the mine on Garleon, where they might have destroyed the Guardians Leader-1 and Treds but for the timely intervention of a miner named Turbo. Geeper-Creeper was the only member of the team to escape capture, though this meant he didn't get in on the ground floor as one of Cy-Kill's chums when the Guardian High Protector defected to the Renegades. "Et Tu, Cy-Kill"

Geeper-Creeper was among the Renegades stationed in their Fortress on GoBotron, being present when Cy-Kill showed his troops the captured Astrobeam.Battle for GoBotron He then got to use the device to go down to Earth to aid Cy-Kill's takeover plans, where he was to masquerade as a US Army jeep to get Doctor Braxis past the guards at Cheyenne Mountain. The pair's working relationship got off to a winning start when Braxis called Geeper-Creeper a ghoul; the Renegade responded by bucking Braxis out of his vehicle mode when he first tried to climb in, later taking great pleasure in the human's complaints about the bumpy ride. Nevertheless they were able to work together to complete the mission, allowing the entire human race - bar Braxis - to come under Cy-Kill's control. As a result, he took part in the chase of Guardians Turbo and Scooter, with Anya Turgenova behind the wheel. Conquest of Earth He had to give up his role in the chase when the Astrobeam reversed, though Cy-Kill was pleased with his work. Earthbound Geeper-Creeper then helped to help defend the Fortress but was captured by the Guardians, before the takeover of Earth fell through.The Final Conflict

He was subsequently imprisoned on GoBotron's Prison Moon, being freed when Cy-Kill destroyed the facility's power generator and escaping along with Crain Brain.Cy-Kill's Escape Later he was assigned to guard GoBotron's modifiers with Slicks, a task that bored them both. They got a bit of excitement when Scooter used one of his holograms to lure them into a dead end, and the pair came under fire from Turbo, Small Foot and Sparky. Geeper-Creeper was knocked out in the subsequent fight. The Fall of GoBotron He recovered to help BuggyMan chase Sparky and Scooter across GoBotron to a cargo ship launcher. While Geeper-Creeper was fooled by the pair hiding in the launcher, BuggyMan wasn't and fired the pair of Guardians off into space. Flight to Earth

Along with Cy-Kill, Cop-Tur, Crasher, Pincher and Snoop he was later part of a Renegade team that planned to use a brainwashed Scooter to let them inside a secret UNECOM base in Utah. However, Scooter had been restored to his normal self thanks to sideshow freak Clive and the Renegades instead walked into a trap, finding themselves flanked by Leader-1, Turbo, Blaster, Scratch, Dozer, Dumper and Road Ranger. The weight of numbers soon saw the Renegades get the worse end of the fighting - until the Guardians' scientist Professor Von Joy decided to intervene with his latest invention, incapacitating the entire squad of Guardians and allowing Cy-Kill to call a retreat. It's the Thought that Counts He was then stationed at a secret Renegade base on Earth along with Tank, Screw Head and BuggyMan. The project was discovered by Leader-1, Turbo, Scooter and Wrong Way but the Renegades were able to use Doctor Go's new personal stealth devices to avoid capture. He was later one of the Renegades secreted into the venue of purported peace talks in Vienna, but their plan was thwarted when a suspicious Turbo and Scooter were able to expose them with the help of the latter's new decoder. Along with Screw Head, Tank and BuggyMan he was one of the personnel at a Renegade base destroyed by a Guardian operation but escaped using a new personal stealth device, later being part of Cy-Kill's plans to use bogus peace talks to destroy the Guardians.Pacific Overtures

After Cy-Kill kidnapped the disgraced UNECOM scientist Doctor Eiji Tsuburaya and forced him to work with Doctor Go on a new version of his modifier, Geeper-Creeper and Tank were assigned to security. However, Tsuburaya tricked them, building a powerful light to blind the guards before escaping. Destroy All Guardians Along with Block Head, he escorted Cy-Kill as the pair of them chased after Turbo and Scooter. However, it was a Guardian trap - Leader-1, Heat Seeker and Path Finder jumped them, capturing Cy-Kill. Geeper-Creeper was part of Fitor's plan to get their leader free, with the pair pretending to be defectors to the Guardians, offering a Thruster and a stealth device to convince General Newcastle and Anya Turgenova they were genuine. Leader-1 was less sure and decided to test them by sending the pair along with Turbo, Hans-Cuff and Spay-C to investigate an SOS from Elba, where Cy-Kill was being held. As their leader had already swayed Royal-T and Street Heat to his side the resulting crossfire soon saw Turbo captured. The Renegades took control of their Command Center, using a mesmerised Spay-C and Hans-Cuff to sneak past Earth's defences. Thanks to Matt Hunter, Turbo was able to get free and warn the Guardians, foiling the Renegade plan once again. Escape from Elba

He was based on the Renegades' asteroid base when Zero, Crasher and Cop-Tur returned from an unsuccessful raid on a weapons factory on GoBotron. Zero called Cy-Kill out on his poor leadership record and stormed out; Twin Spin and Geeper-Creeper decided to follow Zero instead, and the trio make a successful raid on GoBotron's main power station. Zero then challenged Cy-Kill for leadership of the Renegades, winning the battle and prompting Stretch and later Bad Boy to join them. With Crasher their prisoner, Zero decided to collect a Guardian in order to tie both the rival factions up, successfully taking Turbo. Sadly the plan was stymied after Stretch managed to release both captives just as Zero was planning a full assault on GoBotron. The group were forced to withdraw to Zero's hideout but they were soon under attack from the Guardians; Geeper-Creeper quit, along with Zero's other troops. Hoping to take out both groups, Zero set the base to self-destruct; Twin Spin tipped off Cy-Kill and in return he, Stretch, Geeper-Creeper and Bad Boy were accepted back into the Renegades.The Third Column

Geeper-Creeper was sent by Cy-Kill to plant explosives at a power station but was intercepted by Turbo and Matt Hunter. He jettisoned the explosives and escaped. On returning to Thruster he complained about the problems the Guardians are causing their schemes to Cy-Kill and Doctor Braxis. They hit on the idea of using the sirens of Wagner 11 to attack the Command Centre with their sonic shrieks. However Matt and A.J. Foster were able to bounce the sound back towards the Renegades, who retreated. The Wagner Sirens

Renegade Rhetoric[edit]

RenegadeRhetoric Farewell Geeper-Creeper.jpg

When Cy-Kill decided to campaign for President of the United States, the Renegades organized to "get out the vote". The methods they used may have seemed unorthodox, even criminal, but really the disaster at Fort Bragg was Geeper-Creeper's word against Twister's. Cy-Kill For President Geeper-Creeper and the Renegades attacked UNECOM to secure a new element called Scootonium. Geeper recovered the element from the Command Center while a battle with the Guardians raged, and Cy-Kill ordered a retreat after he was successful. The Scootonium Scenario

"Brain Problem Situation"[edit]

When Cy-Kill detected a group of dimensionally-displaced Autobots fighting the Guardians, he dispatched Geeper-Creeper and a group of Renegades to help out the newcomers, assuming that the Autobots and their Guardian-fighting ways would them make ideal allies to the villainous cyborgs. The Renegades defeated the Guardians and escorted the Autobots back to the Rogue Star. When they realized that they'd been duped, the Autobots turned on the Renegades after discovering that their GoBot benefactors were evil. Brain Problem Situation

Toys[edit]

GoBots[edit]

GoBots[edit]

GoBots version
  • Geeper-Creeper (GoBot, 1984)
    • Enemy Robot Off-Road Vehicle
    • ID number: 28
    • Accessories: Machine gun
Geeper-Creeper was released by Tonka in the first series of GoBots, and converts from robot to Mitsubishi CJ3B (a licenced version of the Jeep CJ) military jeep in 8 steps. The toy was a repackaging of Jeep Robo from Machine Robo, with no significant changes - though the additional sticker sheet of the Japanese version including additional markings for both modes was omitted. Geeper-Creeper features die-cast metal parts, and a removable machine gun that can be wielded in robot mode — a rarity for small GoBots. The gun can also be mounted in two different positions on the vehicle mode. However, it is often missing on loose samples. His plastic windscreen pieces are also often lost as they are made of soft plastic and can be removed relatively easily. Geeper-Creeper is also susceptible to wear in several places, particularly his head and his hip joints. The former tend to bow out away from the body easily.
  • Geeper-Creeper was offered in the second assortment of GoBots figures manufactured in 1984 (#7201). The figure remained available throughout the line's life as part of the second and third series' Enemy/Renegade assortment (#7254). The third series version came with a card-mounted 3-D GoBots Sticker.
  • Bilingual Canadian releases used the alternative name Rampeur.

Gift Packs[edit]

  • Renegade Gift Pack #2 (Gift Pack, 1984)
An unchanged Geeper-Creeper was included one of Tonka's Renegade Gift Pack #2 sets, with similarly unchanged versions of Tank and the black version of Crasher.

    • ID number: RM-28
    • Accessories: Machine gun
Jeep featured no changes from the American/Japanese release, including the additional sticker sheet from the Japanese version - right down to the 'Jeep Robo' text for the alternate mode's vehicle sides. The back of the European card and various catalogues referred to the figure as Geeper-Creeper, and he was the last Robo Machine release before the line largely switched to using Tonka-inspired names.

Machine Men[edit]

Machine Men[edit]

  • Jeep Man (Machine Men, 1983)
    • Enemy Robot
    • ID Number: 18
    • Accessories: Machine gun
The sixth and final toy from the third wave of figures, Jeep Man was released by Bandai Australia in 1983. He remained identical to the original Jeep Robo toy, albeit packaged on a blue backing card.
  • Geeper-Creeper (Machine Men, 1984)
    • Enemy Robot
    • ID Number: 18
    • Accessories: Machine gun
In 1984, the figure was re-released with his GoBots name (well, almost - the card misspelt it 'Greeper-Creeper') and faction on a new black backing card depicting a blue-tinted alien landscape.
