    Product Description
    Let's see what you can see...This article is in need of images.Specifics: Volcano setSnapper is a Predacon from the Beast Era portion of the Generation 1 continuity family. Villain in a halfshell!Everyone knows the tortoise beat the hare, but had that tortoise been Snapper, he'd have beat the hare into a bloody pulp and hid the remains at the bottom of a swamp. A foul-mouthed crank of a Predacon, Snapper complains endlessly about everything, and anyone who tries to get him to lighten up or see the bright side will be subjected to a furious tirade of insults. According to his comrades, he will not shut his face unless he's in a desperate situation. Boasting a bulky superstructure and a powerful set of jet-propelled thrusters, Snapper is proof that not all turtles are slowpokes. But unlike another jet-powered warrior turtle, Snapper is anything but a friend to children everywhere. Contents1 Fiction1.1 Dreamwave Generation One continuity1.2 IDW Beast Wars comics1.3 Beast Wars: Uprising2 Toys2.1 Beast Wars3 Merchandise4 Notes4.1 Foreign names Fiction Dreamwave Generation One continuityShell Game was never published. The following would have taken place in unpublished issues.After the Maximals left prehistoric Earth at the end of the Beast Wars, Magmatron traveled to the organic world to activate all protoforms that had been left behind, planning to turn them into Predacons in the process. Snapper was among the protoforms activated to this end. Shell Game #1 IDW Beast Wars comics *Yaaaaawwwwn*One account places the Decepticon who would one day call himself "Snapper" serving under Megatron at the tail-end of the Great War. He participated in Megatron's attack Tigatron when he approached the Decepticons to broker peace between the two factions, and in the subsequent assault on the Primal Council's base of operations. They were pushed back by Magnaboss. Afterwards, the Tripredacus Council arrived on the scene, and surrendered to the Autobots on behalf of all Decepticons, ending the war. Dawn of the PredacusAnother account claimed that Snapper, as a Maximal, joined the Axalon crew as he wished to get away from war and occupy himself with peaceful exploration. Beast Wars Sourcebook #4 He would not get his wish, as Magmatron came to prehistoric Earth to gather an army using the Axalon's protoforms. Snapper was among the protoforms to be successfully turned into Predacons. The Gathering #1 Magmatron ordered his forces to seek out the double-agent Razorbeast and his crew of Maximals. The Gathering #2 Within a few days, the Predacons had located the Maximal headquarters, and battle ensued. During that battle, Snapper tangled with K-9. The Maximals won that fight, and Snapper and the surviving Predacons retreated into the wilderness. The Gathering #4He was later seen with Manterror and Retrax spying on the Maximals. That is, until Grimlock decided he'd be better as a footrest. The Ascending #1 He was left behind on Earth to fight the Blendtrons, and managed to survive that battle. The Ascending #4 Beast Wars: UprisingSnapper was a member of the Resistance, an alliance of Maximals and Predacons fighting together to overthrow the tyrannical Builders of Cybertron that ruled over them. He operated under the legendary Grimlock, alongside Barbearian, Mach Kick, and The Man Terror. While their leader was away on a mission, Snapper and Barbearian started scuffling over some petty insult, eventually dragging the other members of their cell into the brawl. When Grimlock returned, he broke up the kerfuffle and berated all four of his underlings for neglecting their posts. The former Dinobot then informed them that he had acquired a powerful weapon to be unleashed onto their oppressors: the G-Virus.Snapper's group infiltrated Tesarus Arena to infect as many Builders as possible with the virus. Though they managed to make some headway unimpeded, they wound up stumbling into an ambush. Mach Kick was blown to bits immediately, and Snapper attempted to flee, only to be stopped by Grimlock. Telling his subordinate that they would only encounter a greater number of enemy units should they attempt to retreat, Grimlock insisted the group press on. The remaining Resistance fighters managed to take out a couple of Micromaster troopers before Hot Rod, Spaceshot, and Blackout came in to reinforce the opposition. While Grimlock and Hot Rod tore into one another, Snapper and The Man Terror were left to contend with the two sisters. Man Terror was in turn destroyed, but both sisters were incapacitated, allowing Grimlock to hand over the G-Virus over to Snapper for delivery into the arena's crowd. As Snapper was readying to fire the virulent payload, Hot Rod revealed to him what the G-Virus actually did; the weapon had been reverse-engineered from Galvatron's remains, and would replicate the process that had turned Megatron into the mad scion of Unicron in every Transformer it infected. Disgusted that Grimlock would unleash a hundredfold more of the "worst Builder of all time" onto Cybertron, Snapper destroyed the G-Virus and surrendered himself to the encroaching authorities. In thanks for his cooperation, Hot Rod promised Snapper that he'd be treated fairly. Micro-AggressionsI want to tell you about the Transformers!This character article is a stub and is missing information on their fictional appearances. You can help Transformers Wiki by expanding it.Cultural Appropriation Derailment Toys Beast Wars Works for Bowser.Snapper (Basic, 1996)Accessories: Twin cannon Part of the first wave of "smooth bubble" Beast Wars Basics, Snapper transforms into a green organic snapping turtle. Like many Beast Wars Basic figures, his transformation is spring-loaded; pressing down his tail converts him most of the way from turtle to robot. A portion of his shell-back pops free, revealing a flip-out double-barreled blaster weapon that can peg onto his forearms.More information on Snapper at TFU.infoVolcano Showdown (Vs Playset, 1997)Japanese ID number: VS-X1Accessories: Twin cannonSnapper was available in Japan exclusively in this large set containing not only him and his enemy Armordillo, but also a large battery-operated volcano playset. The playset comes with a number of red plastic balls in some way representing lava, which can either roll down the mountainside in a perpetual cascade, or be fired from the accompanying cannon. It has been hypothesized that this playset was originally slated for an abandoned Microman line, which is made plausible by the scale of various sculpted details. Merchandise Beast Wars Transformers Mutating Card Game (1997)Snapper was one of the 24 beast warriors to receive a battle card representation for the Beast Wars card game. NotesSnapper's pre-beast body in Beast Wars: Uprising is modeled on Generations Fall of Cybertron Brawl/Twintwist.
