Crackpot cartoon image.jpg

Crackpot is a Rock Lord from the planet Quartex. He is on the side of good and is part of Boulder's forces. Crackpot has a slightly goofy personality and is often given a hard time by his fellow Rock Lords for some of his crazier plans. Despite this he is well respected and often has good ideas when problems arise.

Crackpot was part of Boulder's good Rock Lord army. He was present when Boulder and his forces planned to trap Magmar and his evil Rock Lords in a canyon, a plan which was interrupted by the arrival of the Renegades. He retreated with Boulder's forces and was present when Nuggit brought Leader-1 and his Guardians to meet Boulder. Teaming up with the Guardians, he took part in the later battle between the combined forces of the good Rock Lords and the Guardians, against the evil Rock Lords and the Renegades. Following the defeat of Magmar, and the Renegades' departure from Quartex, he remained with Boulder's army. Battle of the Rock Lords

GoBots Magazine[edit]

Along with Boulder, Granite, Marbles and Pulver-Eyes, Crackpot was cornered on a cliff over the Lava River by Magmar's Evil Rock Lords. Thankfully Nuggit arrived with the Rockasaurs, giving his friends an opening to fight back. Update from Quartex

Rock Lords mini-comics[edit]

Boulder tired of the threat Magmar posed to Quartex and led his troops out to attack Stonehead. However they were ambushed by Magmar, who froze them in their rock forms with his new Cryon Ray. Only Nuggit—scouting ahead and clearly doing a bang-up job of it—escaped, following the Evil Rock Lords back to their base, where the Good Rock Lords were imprisoned in a cage. He was able to free them, allowing Boulder and his men to get free. Magmar again attempted to use the Cryon Ray but Nuggit had disabled it, so Boulder shot the whole group of Evil Rock Lords over with his Power Sword. Powerful Living Rocks Face a Deadly New Peril


Rock Lords[edit]

Rock Lord Crackpot toy.jpg
  • Crackpot (Rock Lords, 1986)
    • Good Rock Warrior
    • Rock Type: "Azurite: a mix of violet and gray that's tough enough to resist good-natured kidding.."
    • Accessories: Magnetic Pulse Gun
Crackpot was released in the second series of Rock Lords by Tonka and converts from robot to azurite rock in X steps. The figure was released in Japan as Cross Rock, one of the Rock Robo in the Machine Robo:Revenge of Cronos toyline, with no significant changes; it is unclear which was the original release. Crackpot has movement at the shoulders, elbows, hips and knees but sadly his arms can only move out parallel to his body, which means he can only use his sword to jab people.

    • Accessories: Magnetic Pulse Gun
In Europe, Rock Lords was a subline of Robo Machine. Crackpot was issued by Bandai in 1986 with no significant changes.


  • Crackpot's prototype had a darker, pock-marked meteorite-like appearance.
  • It would seem Tonka's copy writers got his weapon and Boulder's mixed up, as the latter's mentions a sword whereas Crackpot's mentions a gun.
