    I have a G1 Skylynx I was thinking about selling... you sir are making me have second thoughts. Is there a WIP thread?

    Also, what do you use to attach your ball joints and cups to the existing robot? I've tried hobby grade CA glue (Super Glue), Epoxy etc with mixed results.

    Amazing work, GREAT JOB!

    Wow. I added some articulation to a SG Skylynx a while back, but this really the next level. I love the hinged jaw on Lynx. How did you cut it? I would have destroyed it trying that!

    That's pretty dern cool! Aside from looking a bit thin in a few spots and my wondering if the lynx legs can do more cat-like poses (they look spread like a crocodile would stand in most of the pics), this is MUCH better than it was. I always thought lots of articulation could make Skylynx look way better. Love the opening lynx mouth and articulated wings.

    I love the articulation, but I'm not a fan of what you did to the alt mode. It used to be really clean...

    Very neat. I bought a junker Skylynx to do the same thing, only with different bird-legs (from a TF Movie figure).

    Can you let everyone (including me!) know what you used to create the ball-jointed areas of the tail and neck? That's what stalled out my own - I couldn't figure how to make fodder still slide/collapse back into the shuttle, and still have balljoints.

    Oh my lord this is beautiful. I recently bought a reissue Sky Lynx to do the same. Are you able to tell us how you articulated the Sky Lynx neck? That's pretty much all I wanna do.

    Again, beautiful. Who needs a modern classics version when the original toy was so awesome and can be articulated so wonderfully.

    First of all so sorry i think i totally forgot the review my thread after posting... normally i individually comment on all... seem this 1 slipped completely....

    hey dude thnx for liking hem :)  to be honest it was a long time ago :(  i really cant remember... wish i responded to ur question sooner!

    Yo dude... glad u like em :)  yes he can do more poses, but my handicap forbids me to take more time for picturen im in so much pain playing with my TF's all my custom work i do laying down on my bed... but i dont like taking pics on my bed so when im done i always need to be as quick as possible so mostly just 1 pose for all pics :(  sorry

    thanx yeah i like the jaw and wings are my fav as well...
    although the neck was giving me serious headaches :p 

    at that time my skills where bit limited and since it was for my own collection i needed to be quick and since i never transform i'm actually pretty satisfied :)  thnx

    awww thnx dude! :D 

    thank you so much..

    i remember only using lego bionicle parts on this whole build!
    thnx man, most are double hinged to allow folding...
    actually its super duper hard to transform that by now i prolly cant even do it anymore i'm afraid :(  but it was possible :)  cheers!

    hehe thnx dude...
    just like in the comment above lego joints for the WIN!

    why thank you dude :p 

    ------
    UPDATE: I've made some tweaks cuz i got motivated by the new upcomming Skylynx and im serious in doubt if I should sell mine, what would be a realistic price for this thing... thats so hard to estimate :(

    The added articulation really makes this thing pop. I prefer this mold to the new CW Skylinx.

    Would you ever consider painting him up?

    Nice work, I really like it. To complete it- I feel like he needs a spiffy new metallic paint job.
