A former soldier in the Maximal army, Rockbuster chose to leave to fight the Predacon threat on his own. He was formerly teamed with Big Convoy and the two were considered an unstoppable duo. He remains one of Big Convoy’s best friends and they look up to each other as equals. He is a wandering warrior who fights whatever Predacon menace he encounters and does so with deadly efficiency. While he chooses a life of solitude, he periodically looks in on his old pal, Big Convoy, to see how he’s doing.

Beast Wars Neo
- Rockbuster (Basic, 1999)
- Japanese ID number: C-33
- Aside from his rubsign (which shows the Maximal symbol rather than Predacon), this figure is indistinguishable from the video-pack-in redeco of Kenner's Razorclaw. He transforms into an organic fiddler crab. His smaller claw contains a (non-firing) blaster, while the larger claw has a series of pop-out blades activated by a simple lever mechanism.
- Rockbuster vs Hydra (Vs set, 1999)
- Japanese ID number: VS-33
- Rockbuster was also available in a two-figure "Versus" pack with Hydra. Both toys are identical to their individual releases.
