    Skylynx
    Hi its me again!!!
    Here is my take on Skylynx, one of my favorite transformer. Its a common nowadays to see a custom combiner yet you cant see a skylynx custom. I made it from a TFTM Jetstorm (Cybertron jetfire). I just did minimal extreme mods like removing the head, cutting the jet nose to make a mouth, modifying the neck articulation and painting it white...whoala!!!! I originally intended to make the lynx but got too lazy and only did the bird mode. anyway enjoy!!!!

    I'm speechless...I had no idea this is where you were going with this one. Wonderful panel lines. That ALT transformation works PERFECTLY!!!

    Some red or blue would be nice, but really this works REGARDLESS...

    ...AWESOME...

    too bad you couldnt use one of those mutant vehicles for the mouth.
    they were cars and planes that mutated into things that had spikey wheels, eyes, and sharp teeth.

    glad to see that you did this, I am going full on with my version(that you inspired) when I saw this I had just gotten the tru repaint in a lot off eBay . regardless I like where yours went, maybe you can make a lynx later, I have yet to start that half.

    very inventive idea, glad to see it isn't a straight repaint

    I was expecting a Bipedal Humanoid robot with Skylynx's color scheme, and was thinking "OK, nice try. but he has to be a...HOLY!"

    I rather wish his feet were red, and the addition of a Crawler/Lynx (Given they they just sit on top of eachother, it'd be doable) would make it PERFECT, but wow. This is the first GOOD (and complete) Skylynx update I have ever seen!

    Very imaginative to say the least. It's a great idea which turned out fairly well. I think the panel lining is overdone and not straight in certain areas and the paint looks thick.

    Oh! So much on my To-Do-List, but this is so inspiring...

    Great piece of work. I may have to pick up a Stratosphere the next time a half-off sale comes around. Or post-Christmas clearances.
