Explanation of the conversion:

Stasis pods History: Razorclaw II was one of the protoforms from the Maximal ship called the Axalon commanded by Optimus Primal, which chased the Predacon criminal Megatron II through transwarp space after the theft of the Golden Disc. The Maximals and Predacons crashed on prehistoric Earth, where high energon levels threatened to destroy the crew unless they adopted organic alternate modes (Beast Wars Part 1).

Razorclaw II The Axalon's cargo of Maximal protoforms in stasis pods had been launched into orbit before the crash, but eventually Razorclaw II's pod fell to Earth. Discovered by Tarantulas and the Tripredacus Agent after the end of the Beast Wars and programmed as a Predacon, Razorclaw II emerged formatted in the form of a crab (Convention Comics 2001).

Capable of remaining motionless beneath a layer of sand, Razorclaw II is one of the best quick attack specialists the Predacons have got! When enemies approach his hidden location, his powerful pincer claw shoots up through the surface to capture and impale victims with the claw's protruding cyber-spikes!

Trivia: Razorclaw II was recolored and released with a Beast Wars video tape in 1998. The toy of Razorclaw II is similar to that of Rockbuster. Razorclaw II shouldn't be confused with Razorclaw, a Generation One Predacon who turns into a lion, Razorclaw III, a mutant who turns into a dinosaur or wolverine or Razorclaw IV, a Decepticon who turns into a hawk/tiger hybrid. The toy of Razorclaw II is similar to that of Rockbuster.

Razorclaw II Powers: Razorclaw II is a Predacon, a small, highly fuel efficient Cybertonian. He is very tough, and nearly fearless. He has powerful claws with a blaster concealed in his left. He can assume the form of crab. His body shell withstands an incredible amount of firepower. He has a long reach which gives him an advantage in hand-to-hand combat. Radar defeating shell armor allows him to stay cloaked from Maximal sensors. He recovers from damage quicker in beast mode and is better protected from high energon levels as well.

Weaknesses: Razorclaw II is very slow. While he can sneak up on his opponents, or lay in wait for them, he would be hard pressed to follow a fleeing target. He is a very low ranking Predacon. High energon fields can adversely effect Razorclaw II if he stays in robot form for too long. His animal form is protected from high energon levels. His lack of hands limits his ability to manipulate tools and weapons.
