Lost Projects: Repoclaimer
"Back when the thought of creating something made of soft vinyl was just starting to come together, a very different creature almost made it to production level before the Armodoc was even designed.
The Repoclaimer was a Sincroid hunting juggernaut that would have marked our first foray into toys of a bigger scale and functionality. For multiple reasons this beef bomb ended up being put on hold when it was about 65% complete in favor of moving forward with what would become the Traveler hunting Armodoc. I guess the Sincroids got a "get out of jail free card" because of it.
Many projects almost make the grade, from Noboto to Rechlen and Aves. Some even go to steel and are not up to standard and have to be canceled, like a recent humanoid head with no helmet that kept deforming when pulled from the mold (this one still bugs me)."
"Designed to capture and return rogue Sincroids to their manufacturer when called upon, the Repoclaimers are specifically built to counter a Sincroid's natural abilities. Mysterious in origin, very few are known to exist but their performance in "repossessing" Sincroids is nearly flawless. When a Sincroid's master has not paid in full, the Sarvoser Department on the Capital Planet Metran sends these hulking interlopers to do their bidding and bring back their property. The fact that Sincroids are sentient beings does not matter to a Repoclaimer - it will not stop until the mission is completed, unless of course a way to destroy one is discovered. Because the Repoclaimers are reluctant to travel to the desolate world of Issaris, many renegade Sincroids make the journey there when on the run. The reason for the Repoclaimers hesitation in pursuing their targets to this ravaged world is unknown, but is considered very fortunate by their prey."
