Always know what your allies and enemies choose to ignore
|Motto||Always know what your allies and enemies choose to ignore|
Cryotek is one of the most deadly and mysterious figures in the history of Cybertron's criminal underworld. Though he was once considered one of the planet's most gifted engineers, Cryotek became increasingly dissatisfied with the actions of the Predacon ruling class - leaders who he felt had too quickly abandoned the classical Decepticon philosophies of conquest and deceit. Relying on the more illicit opportunities available to a being of his considerable skills and intellect, Cryotek eventually became one of the most dangerous outlaws on Cybertron - one more than willing to apply his scientific talents to the less-than-noble pursuits of extortion, theft, and criminal mayhem. Cryotek's logical mind and pragmatic bent have made him an extremely successful gangster, one who approaches each new "business venture" with the discipline of a trained researcher. Nevertheless, Cryotek does find the time to take great pleasure in his work.

The Japanese version of Cryotek, released by Takara, contains an added bonus of a blue figurine sitting inside the spark chamber. This was in the original design plans for TM2 Megatron on which this mold is based, calling for a personified spark. The Japanese release is otherwise indentical to the stateside version save for this addition.
