    ...Beast Wars Rat Trap? It's been a while since I watched Beast Wars, but as I recall Rat Trap at first would try to avoid going out into battles and putting out effort. But once he did, he did a great job and actually seemed pretty brave. Crosshairs seemed a lot like that to me in AoE.
    Anyone else see the similarity, or am I imagining things? :)

    With that toothpick in the mouth, the trenchcoat, and the dual SMG's, I thought he'd be a school shooter or some shit. Turns out he's more of an 80's action hero than anything-he's too boisterous and fun to be a 90's hero, even if the trench coat suggests he's 90's. But yes, I see the Rattrap similarities.

    yup. his toy's trenchcoat and bomb storage convinced me to turn it into rattrap but i was glad to see that crosshairs was basically rattrap too... especially when hound threatened him, lol. reminded me of rhinox.

    With all these Crosshairs threads it really seems like the most popular of the new autobots.

    Every scene I saw Crosshairs I kept thinking of Popeye the Sailor Man. I don't know why, but every scene I thought of him.

    Ha. I read that and that is all I can think now. He was pretty much rattrap's personality though. They should have just named him rattrap and not crosshairs. It has been awhile, but I am pretty sure Bayformer Crosshairs is nothing like Targetmaster Crosshairs.

    I'm not as familiar with G1, but when I think of Sunstreaker I think of his vanity. As I remember him, he was willing to fight but was afraid of getting his paint scratched or something. I didn't get that from AoE Crosshairs at all...

    Wow...you're right. Their personalities are almost identical. Rattrap was always a grump, complained about anything, and disrespected Optimus' authority. Crosshairs did all of that.

    He didn't remind me of anyone. But now that you mention Rattrap, I can see the similarities.

    Crosshairs didn't remind me of rattrap, he reminded me more of wheeljack from Transformers Prime. John DiMaggio sounded alot like the voice actor for WheelJack. plus, they both have a loner attitude as they seem to work the best working alone.

    I am not sure if anyone else caught it but he sounded more like one of the Wreckers from the third movies not sure who

    For me, Crosshairs was like the love child of Roadbuster and Sunstreaker.
