    That'd actually be funny if the lynx head was flipped up.

    Nice! I never owned Sky Lynx and always wanted one as a kid.

    I wish they would release a re-issue Trypticon and a Fort. Max. I might purchase this Skylynx.

    Looks nice, I like the packaging but really miss the styro inserts. Either way this is a great reissue and hope after omega supreme encore gets some other new reissues. At least some that weren't reissued already.

    O.k. maybe hound, trailbreaker, sunstreaker, wheeljack, mirage....

    Look at this crap:

    http://www.hlj.com/product/TKT78590

    What kind of store is HobbylinkJapan exactly??? They put "discontinued" on the day the item is released every freakin time!!! If they're strictly a pre-order store then they should say so somewhere on the front page. You can hardly ever order anything after the release date. I just got screwed out of a black Incinerator because of their weird way of doing business. It's the most retarded & annoying way of doing business that I've ever seen. It is NOT discontinued, it just came out! :mad

    They already have.

    He's called "Predaking".

    Admittably, Predaking loses. Repeatedly.

    Here's another one:

    http://www.hlj.com/product/TKT30344

    There's no place to pre-order it & then on the release day they're gonna mark it as "discontinued".
    :wtf: 

    I just don't get it. Are they in business to actually sell items & make money or just show pictures of items for no reason at all???

    Hound was already reissued - both by Takara (http://www.pbase.com/julienc/image/42741142) and e-hobby (http://www.tfsource.com/Reissues/Ehobby-Hound/ehobby-hound.html).

    Trailbreaker also had an e-hobby reissue in 2001, but in limited numbers http://www.gimmeasqueezeplease.com/ebay/transformers/03_trailbreaker_coll25_box01.jpg

    The others you listed won't be coming out. It's been said repeatedly that those molds are missing or destroyed.

    That came out a few years ago though, I don't think it counts. A Trypticon or Metroplex would be nice.

    Eh, I am happy with my original. He's not that impressive of a toy anyhow.
