    berserker and crankase are both base on the same movie design(the dread with the claws on the shoulders) but are different molds(like...lets say dotm sideswipe and rotf sideswipe)
    crowbar is a remold of berserker(as far as we know, feet, arms and head, also way longer dread/hair-tentacle-things
    but in THE MOVIES crowbar and crankase shared the same vehicle mode
    also crankase dotm deluxe and tlk berserker have a very simmilar (although slightly different) vehicle mode, and given that crowbar is a remold of berserker
    then he SHOULD have the same alt mode

    Whoops, meant to say “mold” lol
    _________________

    Since I don’t have any figures of the Dreads yet, I’m thinking of getting DotM Crankcase instead of TLK Berserker before getting getting Crowbar, so I have at least one version of both molds.

    If those wires on Crowbar's head weren't there, they could just repaint this with rust and sell it in a future wave.

    True its probably me cause its late but at first glance they don't look like they are. in the back of his head but rather his b 1513443007-studio-series-02.jpg ack just under the hood of the altmode.

    looks that way..... tbh the greatest mystery here is how they'll hide in alt mode being as long as they are.

    1. Crowbar is most definitely a remold (albeit a heavy one) of berserker.

    2. Crowbar has proper digitegrade legs, it just looks like they’ve got him resting on the lower portion because whoever posed him thought they were his feet

    3. Crankcase and berserker share a CGI model and alt. mode. Yes, the toys are different molds, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see a repaint of berserker as an updated crankcase in the near future.

    That's something I've been wondering. There's no way they'd want you to put Crowbar (and hopefully an eventual Hatchet) with the horribly outdated DOTM Crankcase.

    Nah, they’re probably tucked underneath the kibble on his back (roof/hood/windshield). Keep in mind, they come out of his shoulders, not his head.

    Agreed I find it highly unlikely an updated crankcase and a new hatchet release is out of the cards down the line.

    As a side note berserker remold aside I don't care I'm just happy to have a crowbar finally only 7 years late.

    I was only explaining what was not being understood. But if they wanted they could do it with the voyager. They did a fine job with the chicken leg on past voyagers, so they just need to add extra joints so it's double jointed at the knee. ;) 

    That said I like this mold like I said I was just explaining what was not being understood

    Oooohhhewww Hatchet! Now there's a toy I'm looking forward to! A CORRECT Hatchet this time, Hasbro! I have the Cyberverse Commander/Basic size class version and he was NOT a plane.. I still like the toy though I'd kill for a accurate set of the dreads in today's engineering.

    One thing I like about the movie toys over the generation toys is they are not hollow pieces of trash. Most of them are solid figures. Of course some of them are hollow-ey looking like Voyager Scorn, but not like the car bots with hollow thighs, forearms, and usually one more section.. anyways carry on ...
