The Claw Crushers were mass-produced battle machines used by the robot faction of Exo-Force. They essentially replaced the Sentry mechs used by the robots in the 2006 storyline. Each Claw Crusher was piloted by a silver Devastator robot. They were roughly the same size as the Cyclone Defender and were used to attack the Golden City.
The newest battle machine designed for use by Iron Drones, the Claw Crusher is also mass-produced much as the Sentry was previously. Also like the Sentry, it is considered expendable by the robots – therefore armor is sacrificed in favor of better armament. Claw Crushers are designed to attack en masse – so where one by itself might not seem overly formidable, dozens or hundreds working together are almost unbeatable.
