At some point, I need to rewrite this to adhere to the style guide. --ItsWalky 03:50, 21 May 2006 (UTC)
Yes you do. --M Sipher 03:52, 21 May 2006 (UTC)

Cryotek's actual plan
All right. What was it? Okay, so we know from 3H that it would ultimately end up with the resurrection of Unicron blah blah blah, but... aside from that. He wants to send the Dinobots, the Mutants, and the Wreckers on fools errands. But the real Vector Sigma breaks through the Oracle and gives the Wreckers a REAL mission -- protecting the Divine Light. But... apparently that was Cryotek's true purpose all along? How does that work? Tengu, where are you? --ItsWalky 05:42, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
- Cryotek's purpose was to claim the divine light, lead the Quintessons to Cybertron (whose reformation int he last episode of BM they were unaware of- they lsot contact witht he planet whwn the Oracle went offline) and betray thrm, using the Divine Light's ability to act as a 'fuse' through which to transfer Primus's power either directly into himself, or somehow to Unicron.
- This fails for some reason,a nd the result ins INSTEAD that Primus himself comes online, as seen in TFU, instead of having to work through Vector Sigma. They got the fuse back the Quints pulled when they first invaded the nascent Cybertron, and so Primus can function again.
- That doesn't answer my question. If it was Cryotek's original purpose to claim the divine light, then why did Primus have to come online to *give the Wreckers different directions than otherwise intended*? The implication is that everyone was to be sent off-world into fools errands, but Vector Sigma broke through the Oracle to give the Wreckers their *real* mission, not the fake one. And yet, this was apparently Cryotek's plan from the beginnings, despite it all? It's a plot hole. Unless, I guess, Cryotek set up the whole "Primus broke through and gave us a real mission" thing, and it was his voice that was pretending to be Vector Sigma breaking through in the first place, putting on this charade for the benefit of the Wreckers. But that seems a little absurd. Why bother? Just give them their orders like the others. --ItsWalky 16:32, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
- His plan was A BLOOH BLAH BALLLAHA BLOOOOOOOOOO!!! -hx 03:12, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
I still don't 'see' the conenction between Cryotek and Unicron, bt it's clearly there- Wreckers even list shim as a minion of Unicron, so who knows? -Derik 08:27, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
Why's he under RID? X-BoB58 10:22, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
His toy was released as a RiD toy. However given that all his fiction is G1/BW/BM/TFU related it does seem odd. I just noticed it myself. It really isn't "the continuity he's most associated with" which I thought was the standard. I haven't looked do we have an entry for RiD Optimus Primal, or was his foray as a spirit guide for that Prime covered under BW? ZacWilliam 10:29, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
- Latter-day RiD segued into Universe (Fire Convoy preparing the Spychanger for a great comign threat, the foundign of the Interdimensional whosiswhatsis...)
- I think can, maybe, say that BM Primalw as sent to RiD Prime to inform him of these coming threats we're just told he's preparing for?
- (That's purely metatextual of course, like toy-continuity vs. show continuity, sicne I think RiD Prime started preparign after being kidnapped by Unicron during TFU #2 and subsequently beign returned home.)
- If anything, this would be someting Primal did during his post-death pre-reincarnate state. He doesnt' mention it, but it doesnt' rule it out. (And even if it didnt' 'happen' for the Comic, that's where this piece of toy-continuity is suppsoed to fit.) -Derik 11:50, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
- We had a big discussion in the "series tags" a couple days back, but people seem to keep ignoring it, so it ended up being largely me and Steve-o. "Toy-series of origin" is the way of tagging that simply makes the most SENSE and is EASIEST. You "common association" is far too open to interpretation. Of course, I'm still waiting to see if the UT and BW and J-G1 characters should be broken up into sub-series for consistancy's sake, which, despite me liking how we emphasise the use of (UT), I think we SHOULD. --M Sipher 19:51, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
- That seems awfully toy-specific for a CHARACTER DRIVEN WIKI! If they wanted toys they would go to TFU.info. X-BoB58 19:26, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
- This has been bugging the crap out of me--does anyone actually have 'decent pics' of this spark driver figure from the USA Edition release? 188.8.131.52 13:59, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
There's a Decepticon symbol on Crytotek's left shoulder in Theft of the Golden Disk. Is he supposed to be a former Decepticon? -- SFH 20:09, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
Removed bad reference
I removed the reference link for "Cryotek will eat your dreams." The page it went to was redirected to an AOL Hometown message. It may be determined that the above quote no longer has any reason to be in the Notes section because there is no longer a reference for it. I searched for the image but could find no other hosted versions. --Tripredacus 18:18, 2 April 2009 (UTC)Tripredacus
