That could work as a mascot but not for an actual comic story. It would be a bit too cheesy I think.

Go back over a decade and I was working on Aussie Beast Wars characters and designs. But now I fear digging them up

Hell yeah! - Red-backs, Red-bellies, Crocs, Goannas, Huntsmans, Wasps, Bull-Ants, Quolls, Tasmanian Tigers, Koalas, Roos, Platipi, Blue-Tongues etc.
There is an absolute stack of possibilities with our native fauna.

I like the idea of the typical aussie ute. It could go one step further and add some kind of rum related stickers on the back, some horns, massive flood lights and you have yourself a bogan roo shooter-esque aussie ute.

We already had redneck chavs in Dark of the Moon with the Wreckers... don't think we need more. And I'm personally not fond of pushing the Bogan or "Crikey!" croc-hunter stereotype (-_-) (besides it's arguably already been done with Outback)

With the Autobot Chainmasters we had four different kinds of Australian themed characters (again, feel free to use them - though you'll need to modify the robot mode images/logos to make them look more 'unique/original' unless you plan on giving the comics away for free).

------------------------------------------------------

AUTOBOT CHAINMASTERS
(Tech Spec Profiles by Jhiaxus, artwork by Lynx Traveller)

Background Story:
When the Decepticons sent the clones Pounce and Wingspan to Australia in order to steal uranium for use in nuclear weapons, Optimus Prime assembled an elite team of Autobots to stop them. They were so successful that they have since been permanently stationed in Australia, defending the great Southern continent from Decepticon attacks!

SPECTRE

FUNCTION: GENERAL
"Protect the land and you protect its inhabitants."
At 1.8m, Spectre is the smallest Chainmaster. Observes human culture using a holograph field to disguise himself as human. Loves the land and is protective of its people. Guided by Aboriginal elders, has assumed Chainmaster leadership. Able to use holograph field to resemble any creature or object, or to create dazzling light show to temporarily blind opponents. Uses hypno-chain to inject foes with hallucinogenic techno-venom. Chain is prone to leaking, exposing Spectre to his own venom
Strength: 8 Intelligence: 7 Speed: 5 Endurance: 9 Rank: 6 Courage: 10 Firepower: 8 Skill: 8

BREAKER

FUNCTION: AQUATIC SPECIALIST
"Ride the ocean wave."
Used to the ocean waves, Breaker was horrified when reconfigured for Australian operation as a car. Specialist in aquatic environments, hates being confined to the roads. To compensate, has become an avid surfer. Can operate at depths of up to 100km. Built for crushing ocean pressure, armour can withstand enemy artillery fire. When not complaining about ill-chosen vehicle mode, Breaker is the most easy-going and fun loving of all Chainmasters. Shoulder-mounted chain used for close quarter combat.
Strength: 6 Intelligence: 7 Speed: 7 Endurance: 5 Rank: 4 Courage: 8 Firepower: 5 Skill: 7

MINESWEEPER

FUNCTION: DEMOLITIONS EXPERT
"It's always the red wire."
Former Chainmaster commander, the darker side of Minesweeper’s nature was accentuated due to accidental exposure to radioactive material: irrevocably damaging data tracks. Unable to fully trust his leadership, he was deposed and replaced by Spectre. Incredibly self-confident. Cool head and sense of practicality that makes him ideal demolitions expert, but socially deficient. Uses mini-missile launchers concealed on back in combat. Chain functions as a mine-detector in either robot or vehicle mode.
Strength: 8 Intelligence: 7 Speed: 5 Endurance: 9 Rank: 6 Courage: 10 Firepower: 8 Skill: 8

MUCK RAKER

FUNCTION: EXPLORER
"You don't know how far you can go until you get there."
Muck Raker isn't happy unless half-buried in a swamp, tyres churning through the mud as she pushes through uncharted territory. An explorer at heart, relishes the opportunity given to her by her station in the Australian outback. Fastest of the Chainmasters, especially off-road. Almost no territory she cannot traverse in either robot or vehicle mode. Uses Mud Blaster to gum up her opponents’ works. Uses grappling chain to get out of the tightest spots
Strength: 7 Intelligence: 6 Speed: 8 Endurance: 8 Rank: 4 Courage: 8 Firepower: 6 Skill: 7

Dont worry about the bogan thing Gok, I was kidding. I personally find all the typically aussie bogan stereotypes to be extremely embarrassing.

Yep, that and completely over done - Like taking things in the knee and having things over 9000.

Name: Scat-bot

Class: Spy
Bio: Disgusting smelling, slimy, foul. These words fit Scat-bot like a glove. As a master spy he has a reputation for turning on his allies always leaving them exclaiming "what a piece of s**t. S**t sticks & he is without doubt the most distrusted Evilbot based on reputation alone
