This clunky robot is probably my least favorite character in Tatsunoko VS Capcom. However, I do see the point of this hunk of metal being in the game. He's definitely fun to fight against (and kill) and sort of fun to use, but still I think Capcom could have chose a better mech to take this guy's place. For one, he doesn't hold a candle to Jin Saotome's Bloodia (any mech from Cyberbots would've been a better choice, actually). And I would think more fighting game fans would've played or heard of Cyberbots over Lost Planet.

Personally, I find PTX boring as a design... his boring name doesn't help the case either. In fairness, he's not the worst robot design I've seen, and his level 3 super is pretty damn epic. He definitely looks a lot cooler in his level 3 form.
