I dont give a crap about tankor, this thing shouldnt have been released in the first place.

Crosscut is just a cheap repaint-retool of skids...

but rattrap... if he isnt released, we should kidnapp the executives of hasbro/takara, tie them to the most uncomfortable chair, then force them, in the same way Malcom mcdowell was in Clockwork Orange, to watch the most horrible videos ever made : Uwe Boll's In the name of the King...

I like the look of Crosscut. He seems like he might be a decent character in the comics too. But I still need to get Skids before I worry about his shiny plastic aft.

Tankor is completely skippable to me.

Rattrap is okay, but right now, not a must. I really liked the Transfmetal version, and this misses a lot of the cool stuff on that design.

Either the package got smaller, or Tankor isn't as small as I originally thought he was.

Not sure why everyone's flipping out over the "jazz hands" on Rattrap. Remember, photographers are notorious for mistransforming figures.

I really like the comic cover art for them, especially Tankor's. Though it definitely gives the impression that he's bigger than the toy suggests.

I feel you, megatronus. Because of the hate for Tankor, you and I will have plenty of access to him. ;)

You're right. I guess it's really just a size thing. I'd have loved him at the voyager price point. I'm still going to pick one up though. Is Takara releasing Tankor?

I'm not saying Tankor isn't screen-accurate (and comic accurate too since he's shown up a few times recently) but I am saying the design is not to my liking at all. And since I've no connection to the character, having missed BM the first time around and gave up on it on DVD an ugly design on a non-entity isn't selling me the toy.

Glad that those of you who've been waiting 10 years or however long its been are finally getting him though.

Hmm. His robot mode looks good. His vehicle mode looks a bit meh though.

Which is funny, because the old Tank Drone toy suffered the exact opposite problem. Compare:

I've never really watched Beast Machines (I saw the first 4 episodes on Hasbro's website, but they never put any more up, and I couldn't be bothered to track the rest down) but the toys and designs were pretty good. I certainly think this new Tankor would make a good army builder, seeing as the original Tank Drone is probably quite rare by now.

I hope the Takara version uses chrome like the old toy did- although given how godawful and poorly received the Japanese dub of Beast Machines was I wouldn't imagine they'd really bother...

As a guy who likes to army build, I don't really see the appeal. Even though it's quite faithful to his show model, the size absolutely kills it. Unlike, say, Prime Vehicons or the typical BotCon army builder packs, this figure doesn't really mesh with others in his line, or even with other CHUG style toys. He's just too small.

I'm still buying one, because I rather like Tankor as a character, but I'm not gonna buy four more to flank him. >:oP

I don't have the Basic/Scout sized Tank Drone, only the Ultra scale Tankor. The colors are wrong, but I like the figure a lot. I'll just have two Tankors rather than Tankor plus an army at his back.
