Cross-Ryu Drone


Star Saber, the Illumina II robot, Road Caesar/Liokaiser, and Crossformers, all Victory that they refer to. The Triceratops/Styracosaurus points to Kakuryu, funnily enough.

I know that, I just feel like it's a bit of a stretch. Then again, this is Takara, and they tried to fit RID and the Unicron Trilogy into G1
1. No they did not. Car Robots is G1, but RiD is not. Nor did they try to make the Unicron Trilogy into G1. That's a separate timeline.

2. No, it is not TakaraTomy the toy company who made the identities of these United EX toys. It was Andrew Hall (A.K.A. Hydra) who did that. He's the one who made Rollermaster be Straxus, and that was a surprise. Grimmaster being Kakuryu is no less of a stretch, what with three of the drones ending with "-ryu" in their names.

Sorry, derp'd for a second and forgot about Car Robots (also, I didn't know he decided that. Thought Takara told him who they were). While it wierds me out a little for some reason, it would be pretty neat if it turned out that way. Still, I wish it was a little more re-painted. At least Rollermaster resembles Straxus, and Choppermaster kinda reminds me of Blaze Master. I will probably still get it if it's Kakuryu, though he's getting Reprolabel'd back to a 'Con. It just feels better to me that way.

Based on his personality, it baffles me as to why Kakuryu ever even was a Decepticon, since he was so childish and good-natured, wanting only to just play around and be a goofball most of the time.

My guess is he was bullied into it, or forced. Maybe the 'cons have a drafting system in regions they control, and he could have been from one of those places?

These are the questions that haunt my dreams.

The uniform color on these make them a lot more appealing to me. I'll bite on the two packs, eventually.
