    Jet Blast Off is still Blast Off though. Starscream basically got the leftovers. I’m still holding out hope that TT does an EX Buster and Hydra so Starscream can have 4 jets. Also when Stepper comes out, Jazz and Stepper will join Elita 1 and then Rook and AB will join Inferno. Hopefully we get more in the Select Series..

    I much prefer Grand Galvatron over Galvatronus.

    Really neat! I remember longing for the UniteWarriors Computron set two years ago so I can pose them like that, except I'd have Jetfire be the resident "parent."

    Thanks to Earthwars Pyra Magma is a recent character I had gotten fond of. She was my tank from the beginning and when the first year she kept me in the top 1k rankings without spending a dime.
    I got her loose, but she was missing one of her combined chest pieces so I borrowed them from hotspot. I dig this combined mode. I do think I might try and find a kit to give her a new chest piece unless the seller finds the missing one.

    The lovable, modest oddball of CW, and one of my guilty pleasures from the Prime Wars Trilogy........it’s Sky Lynx!

    Yes I did the hind foot modification. It does make the transformation a bit awkward in shuttle mode. But if you put some chrome highlights on his swordtails and the bottoms of his hind claws, then it looks like he’s got running lights. Problem solved.

    It at least cleaned up the back a lot more. Now it kinda looks like he could actually have a loading dock back there.

    The foot mod was also very helpful in making Sky Lynx a lot more stable in beast mode. I love this mode, this turned out to be such a fun figure for me.

    I like having the option too of putting the swordtails on his wings or on the sides to cover up the hollowness. I didn’t actually like putting them on his tail in this mode. I discovered from another collector a mode where they are better used on the actual tail. I’ve shared that in the fan modes thread before but here’s a preview if you have never seen it.

    I’ll post more in the fan modes thread again. Sky Lynx is a lot more versatile than some have given him credit for. With the foot mod, he’s much more poseable too.

    The mods that I did helped make this guy much more enjoyable. He’s a guilty pleasure because I made him that way. Enjoy!

    Have you, by any chance figured out how to keep Sky Reign's shoulders stable and/ or lock them into place?

    He looks really cool, but the shoulders and hollow spaces in Sky Lynx's torso keep him from being a fave of mine. :(

    No sorry. To be honest I’ve never attempted his combine mode. It just didn’t appeal to me. Good luck trying to figure it out though.

    Sadly there is no known method for locking his shoulders in place. Also I don't thing his torso has any hallow parts. The blue part of his lower body is his torso, and the white is his cape... backpack... jetpack?

    I would have loved to have seen it before they shoehorned it into the combiner line. ...still a nice figure though.

    hey so I bought CW Optimus and I love him


    I Like CW Prime more than Siege. I just need UW Lynxmaster for Ratchet, Hound and Sky Lynx.

    He who originally was a tag along for unite Warriors ratchet and then eventually a placeholder for team optimus's unused deluxe's, Sky Reign eventually became a Regal and pretty tight looking combiner. I love repurposing upgrade kits. 20181110_184439.jpg
