Dunno if it count, but Gobots Screw Head is a serious contender. I have him and I LOVE this little guy.

They don't but I just thought of someone else who does:

Windchill the yeti bot!!!

He transforms into an arctic drill tank with a spinning drill when you push a button.

Or an awesome dragon mode!


Your right, they don,t have an awesome dragon mode, but neither does BW Galvatron

Anyway, always nice to read these lists. Better luck making us whiney BW II fanboys happy next time.


Haha, funny enough, I do have a top 5 Neo toys in the works, I hope that can be a decent enough consolation prize.


Add Servo too!

You cannot since Zetar's peg is on his head, not the drill and the peg for Hasbro's Nosecone is perpendicular to the drill.

The only one that works is the powerdasher that uses the Brunt mold (but it's not a great look).


I know about the peg stuff, I have the figure.

I forgot to mention that the idea was to find a part that would allow the drill to be pegged onto Impactor's hand, maybe even making a custom peg.

Isn't it Zetar that uses the brunt mold?

Haha it is. But i was distinguishing the part, terribly so. The drill head piece doesnt work but the part shared with Brunt, at the tip of the canon, does.

Seeing this list, I really wish I had more drill tank transformers. I love my Cyberverse Sky Byte with the drill armor, I think that is my favorite Transformer with a drill alt mode in my collection right now.

My list would go:

5) Legends Dai Atlas
4) Fall of Cybertron Twin Twist (you can mount the drill weapon out front, it counts!)
3) Selects Zetar
2) Titans Return Twin Twist
1) Cyberverse Sky Byte

These are just the ones I have, I regret not having a Unite Warriors Nosecone regularly. and I also really want a Cybertron Menasor eventually
