Types of Beetleworx
Tankers are the strongest form of Beetleworx. They have heads of different Disney characters, bodies of different vehicles and objects, cannons for arms, and spider legs. Tankers are armed with cannons that can shoot paint and thinner. In Tomorrow City, they take on the appearance of a golden Light cycle, from Tron, for a body and the guards from Lilo and Stitch as a head. In Lonesome Manor, they appear with the face of The Wicked Queen's Witch form and the poisoned apple as a torso. A third variety appears in Epic Mickey 2, based on Ursala. There was a scrapped variety with the head of Hades from Hercules, the plasma blasters from Gantu's ship, and Mickey's car as a body. Despite the fact the Hades Tanker was scrapped, it served as the body design of the other two (not counting the shells). In Epic Mickey 2, however, the scrapped Hades tanker can be seen by visiting the Shadow Blot Diorama a second time.
Sword wielding Beetleworx, Bashers are what the Pirates of Ventureland were turned into. Besides the pirate variation in Ventureland, in Lonesome Manor Bashers are designed to resemble skeletons and the ones in Tomorrow City are based on Maximilian from The Black Hole.
Armed with buzzsaws, Spinners are spider-like Beetleworx that appear in Tomorrow City and Lonesome Manor. One variety seems to be modeled after the skeleton spider from the short film, "The Mad Doctor". Another model appears in Tomorrow City, however, its origins, like the Hopper, are unknown. In the E3 build, a spinner that has a toon Tea Cup overturned on its back, has been shown. It is unknown why it was removed so close to the game's launch. The Tea Cup spinner can be seen by visiting the Clock Tower Diorama in Epic Mickey 2 a 2nd time.
Hoppers are the common variety of Beetleworx, and as their name implies, they hop around the levels and headbutt you. The weakest Beetleworx, Hoppers are bird-like creatures that take on the form of various birds, such as the vultures from The Jungle Book, which can be found in Ventureland and Lonesome Manor, and Scuttle from The Little Mermaid, found on Mickeyjunk Mountain, and some kind of droid found in Tomorrow City. While not confirmed, the closest thing one can find to an origin to this Hopper, is the body, which has been seen in Treasure Planet, as a jet engine. It should also be noted, that concept art of Petetronic has been confirmed to take after Long John Silver, from the same movie.
- When the pirates are transformed into robots by this process, it bears similarity to Doctor Eggman's roboticizer from Sonic the Hedgehog.
