These are much better pictures of the previously unknown line Extreme Soldiers, which apparently saw a mix of Beast Raider and Soldier force figures and tried to emulate the Small Soldiers film. This is our best bet as to where Tusk is from originally.
If anyone can shed some more light on this line, the floor is yours.
Anyone ever run into a red version of Deepklaw? I have recently seen one for sale.
Definitely! The red Deepclaw you mean is actually one of four 'Velotrons' that could be found in the Dino Power: Ninjatron line. Practically ALL mounts from Beast Raider got repainted for that line, and Deepclaw was given black, red, blue and green versions. You can look in the miscellaneous section for a few pictures.
