Next up in our new Transformers toy galleries, we've got a look at Generations Deluxe Tankor to share with you. "Fat Tankor" as he is known (though not to his face) is a part of the upcoming Generations 2014 Deluxe Wave 3 along with Rattrap, an assortment which celebrates the Beast era of Transformers. Tankor is a homage to the Beast Machines Vehicon general Tankor, whose initial Mega class toy in 1999 was extremely cool but very inaccurate to the show model. This version of Tankor is much closer to how Tankor looked on the show, with the possible exception of his short legs. Tankor's transformation is very simple, yet works extremely well and has no excess vehicle parts hanging off the robot mode, which is a rarity among Transformers toys. Tankor is also very nicely poseable. His transformation rules out waist rotation, but almost everything else you could ask from a Deluxe class toy is there and is unimpeded giving a great range of motion. The articulated claw hands are a nice touch and let Tankor get a grasp on extra weapons, other Transformers... it's a really cool touch. The tank cannon is attached with a c-clip, but does not have to come off to transform. The only thing that would have been nice with it would have been if it could have rotated to aim at targets around the tank mode, rather than being fixed straight forwards. Overall, Generations Tankor is a very cool representation of the Beast Machines character. He's a toy who is squat but powerful looking, and a lot of fun to play about with, pose and transform. He's not yet arrived at US retail, but while you wait, please check out our gallery to see what you think of this release: Generations Vehicon Tankor Gallery Generations Tankor Robot Mode Generations Tankor Cybertronian Tank Mode Tankor struck me as the kind of robot who would look great with a gun as big as he is. So here he is armed with one of Metroplex's guns. The articulated claws let him get a good grip on the thing. Generations Tankor with Beast Machines Tankor - both awesome toys in their own ways!
