Physical Description Edit
Crunch wears a mostly black jumpsuit with green overalls, including a green sleeve. He also wears a black bean hat and light gray gloves, along with a headset the rests over his left cheek. He has stubble on his chin, dark eyes, and a long and low uni-brow. He stores dynamite in pockets on his jumpsuit.
Crunch is Alpha Team's explosives expert and, when out in the field, assumes tactics to match his role. Despite this, he is not temperamental and keeps a level head in most dangerous situations. On the contrary, he is actually very concerned about his teammates and will do anything to keep them safe, no matter the situation. Outside of mission life, Crunch loves playing sports, especially basketball.
Before Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Edit
Crunch first appeared in the video game LEGO Alpha Team as the first team member that needs to be rescued. Once he is free, he is unlocked as a playable character. In 2001, he appeared in the first wave of LEGO Alpha Team sets in physical form. He went on to appear in a total of two LEGO sets.
For an unknown reason, Crunch never appeared in the 2004-2005 Mission Deep Freeze sets. LEGO has no story reason for this, though he was replaced with a new agent, Diamond Tooth.
- While Crunch never appeared in the Mission Deep Freeze LEGO sets, the Mustache Maniacs Film Co. canon disregards this detail, stating instead that he was on the mission, though in a supporting capacity.
- According to the website www.freewebs.com/mylego, as well as the official canon, Crunch has a crush on Radia, though he has never admitted this to anyone on the team. The only team member who knows this is Cam Attaway, who was able to draw this conclusion from the fact that Crunch acted sheepish and embarrassed whenever Radia asked him for help.
- While Crunch has a considerable amount of strength, he can't swim well.
