I didn't see any reviews for the new Botcon 2010 Sky-Byte figure from the G2 Redux boxset, so I wanted share my thoughts. Vehicle Mode Sky-byte is a repainted and slightly retooled Energon Sharkticon. His vehicle mode is a spaceship/boat with some shark elements incorporated into the design. To me, the ship mode resembles something either out of Space Battleship Yamato or Captain Harlock more than a shark. The paint apps are probably the highlights for this figure. He has a Predacon symbol and two shark eyes tampographed to the front of the vehicle mode. He also has paint apps of red, green, yellow, gold, pink, and silver adorning his body. I was impressed with all the paint apps that brought out the details of this figure. A blue metallic flake paint appears to have been used for the front of the main body. It really makes the figure pop! The vehicle mode has four turret guns, two on the front deck and one on each side. The turrets rotate 360 degrees and the guns move up and down. The vehicle mode also hides two spring powered launchers when you pull the front sides out. These also rotate for maximum range. Transformation The transformation is pretty simplistic. The lower half folds down to become the waist and legs. The tail-fins in the back unfold to become the arms, and the upper front half folds down to the back while revealing the head. Some might complain about the back kibble, but it's only a minor gripe. Robot Mode Sky-Byte's robot mode is a nice homage to his RID design. The Sharkticon head has been replaced with a new design resembling Sky-Byte's almost constipated expression. Again the paint apps real stand out. The designers did a nice job mimicking the paint scheme from the RID figure. Using the Sharkticon mold was a good choice for Sky-byte. The figure has decent articulation with rotating shoulders, elbow joints, thigh cuts, and knees joints. The head can turn 360 degrees and also pivots slightly up and down. Sky-Byte can also use the hidden launchers in robot mode. Overall, I was expecting to like Sky-byte the least out of this set, but that's reserved for Streetstar. Like I said, the paints are some of the best I've seen on a Transformer. If you have an opportunity to obtain Sky-byte, get him! He's a great figure, and a welcome addition to the collection. I would end this with a haiku, but I'm not that clever.
