- Crankstart is a Decepticon from the Transformers portion of the live-action film series continuity family.
Crankstart is a coward at Spark, with so few Autobots configured for off-road operations, he figured he'd be safe hiding from his nemesis, Breacher in the most treacherous environments. He keeps away boredom by randomly firing missiles at passing vehicles, or local animals.
- Crankstart (Scout, 2010)
- Released in the first wave of Transformers Scout class figures, Crankstart is a yellow, grey and brown repaint of Revenge of the Fallen Dune Runner. As with the previous uses of this mold, his vehicle form is based on the Sector Seven armored buggies, like that of Landmine.
