Revision as of 18:18, April 4, 2007

Cryotek is a Predacon from the Beast Era and Universe series. His toy, however, was released under the Robots in Disguise banner.
Cryotek

It's almost as if he's been doing too much science.

Cryotek is a gangster in Cybertron's dangerous criminal underworld. Once a brilliant engineer, he grew increasingly dissatisfied with his fellow Predacons' actions (or lack thereof) after the war. Turning his talents to crime, he has become Cybertron's most dangerous outlaw.

Ironically, Cryotek's claim to fame would be his protege, the rogue Predacon who would be called Megatron. Cryotek's greatest ideas would be co-opted by his former student, including technology for spark extractors and even his plan for the theft of the Golden Disk. If there's one thing Cryotek's pride cannot stand, it's his own failures.

Chro can often be seen perching on his shoulder.


Fiction

3H comics continuity

Cryotek began a business partnership with the Quintessons, manipulating several groups of survivors of Megatron's virus into orchestrating his grand plan. The Wreckers


Toys

Robots in Disguise

  • Cryotek (Ultra, 2001)
Cryotek, a redeco of Transmetal 2 Megatron in blue, teal, and purple chrome, was a Target exclusive in 2001. He transforms from a robot into a cyborg-like dragon and can launch a missile from the top of his robot head. He also has a third "dragster" mode which is best forgotten.
Both this mold and Tigerhawk's mold share a gimmick that was dropped before release -- a cockpit bubble where a tiny "spark figure" would have piloted the character. Hasbro dropped the concept due to it junking around with the Transformers mythos (as it was feared fans would mistake the "spark figures" as humanoid pilots for a non-sentient transforming robot {a la Diaclone} instead of being representations of the spark essence of a living, breathing Transformer), but the cockpit bubbles remain on both toys (and their redecos). A limited-edition Japanese release of the toy restored the "spark figure" feature, however.

Trivia

  • The name "Cryotek" was first used by a hero from Hasbro's mid-Eighties action figure line Visionaries.
