Explanation of the conversion:

History: Cryotek was a Predacon criminal overlord and inventor on the planet Cybertron 300 years in the future. He became 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.

Cryotek was a mentor to the Predacon who would become known as Megatron II. Cryotek masterminded the theft of the Golden Disc from the supercomputer Vector Sigma, but Megatron II betrayed Cryotek and took the disc for himself and fled Cybertron in the stolen Predacon transwarp ship the Dark Side. Cryotek continued to build his research and development operations, coming up with inventions like the spark extractor after Megatron II left Cybertron.

Cryotek Upon Megatron II's return, Cryotek struck up a bargain with his old student, willingly assisting Megatron II with the elimination of his hated beast form - or at least those elements that Cryotek could most readily exploit! Unprepared for the painful metamorphosis involved in assuming Megatron II's dragon body, Cryotek was sent into temporary stasis lock, allowing his research and development operations to fall into Megatron II's waiting hands. Left betrayed both by his former protege and his own pursuit of power, Cryotek recovered only in time to see his empire - and Cybertron - fall completely to Megatron II's sinister designs.

Cryotek fled the planet and allied himself with the Quintessons. He used Cyclonus as a spy among the Wreckers and plotted to defeat the Dinobots, Mutants and Wreckers (Convention Comics 2002).

Trivia: The toy of Cryotek is similar to that of transmetal 2 Megatron II. A Chinese made knockoff of Cryotek is slightly smaller and is dark green and gold in color.

Cryotek Powers: Cryotek is a Predacon, highly fuel efficient Cybertonian. He is a brilliant weapons designer and criminal genius. He is a triple changer who can assume the form of a dragon or a high speed ground transport. Tough, powerful and highly skilled, he has built an impressive arsenal of weapons for himself. He is capable of firing super cooled blasts of ammonia from the hoarfrost projector mounted in his dragon head. His deadly jaws are also capable of firing plasma torpedoes, each with an effective range of several hundred miles. His deadliest weapon is based on one of his most prized inventions, the spark extractor mounted in his tail. He can use these weapons in any mode. Swooping through battle like an icy demon, Cryotek will often set down on one of his enemies, armored claws bared, only to rend a still pulsing Spark violently from their body - leaving his Targetmaster partner, Chro, to pick at their remains. Although intelligent and logical to the extreme, Cryotek is still an extremely vicious fighter. He recovers from damage quicker in beast mode and is better protected from high energon levels as well.

Cryotek Weaknesses: Cryotek has few weaknesses. He can sometimes be overconfident and overbearing to others. He is a seeker of knowledge, sometimes letting his curiosity get the better of him. Should his carefully laid plans be foiled, Cryotek can be sent into intense periods of isolation and malaise - though his plans are not often foiled! High energon fields can adversely effect Cryotek if he stays in robot form for too long. His animal form is protected from high energon levels.
