Cylinders

Talon

Now let’s meet the crew. The first to arrive at the scene is Talon, an Iraq veteran who can climb stairs and crawl into little nooks.

All in a Day’s Work

Here’s Talon back in his Iraq days.

A Flock of Bison

Next comes Bison (pictured here with some friends; the five bots in the back row are Bisons), who uses his cutting tools to gain access to the cylinder. He also shoots jets of water.

Black Max

Black Max is in charge of the fire hose.

Brokk

Last but not least, there’s Brokk, whose giant claw enables him to pick up the cylinders and transport them away from the scene.
