    Sky Lynx? At leat the Shuttle half?

    The only other big shuttle is Galaxy Shuttle from Transformers Victory.

    Oh, and of course Armada Jetfire.

    Astrotrain can transform into a space shuttle but he's not huge at all, so it could only be either Sky Lynx or Galaxy Shuttle.

    Sky Lynx has been released during season 3 of the G1 series.

    And Galaxy Shuttle is a late G1 toy. It's an Autobot and the toy has only been released within Japan. Galaxy Shuttle is from the Japanese G1 season Victory. There is also a toy edition from the Zone season (Zone lasted only one episode). :wink: 

    I've got a picture of it. This one is my own piece. It's the Zone version:

    hehe you are like 10th guy to ask that:p  I cut it from this paper:

    [​IMG]

    I tend to collect EVERY material possible. so ive got 68 official movie wallpapers in my TF movie folder:p 


    and thanks for the reply guys..hm.. I dont think it was the Armada bot. Cause it was probably 10-15 years ago. Im not sure Armada was created then... hm.. It could be Galaxy Shuttle. Thanks Peacemaker. tho Im not sure it looked similar. But I remember it was very big cause it was kinda hard to play with it lol. It was 3 times bigger then most of my transformers. 2 maybe 3 times bigger then Megatron in gun mode... Its so hard to remember now how exactly it looked:(  but I guess it must be Galaxy Shuttle. hehe thanks!

    Your welcome.
    It also could be Sky Lynx as it has been released worldwide. Sky Lynx consists of 2 parts, basically the shuttle part and the lynx part. The front of the shuttle can be extended to form the head and neck of the shuttle. The back of the shuttle can also be extended, this time it forms the tail. The blue/red part can change into a lynx. One detail of Sky Lynx is that it could roll. It's an motorized toy. :wink: 

    There is one major difference between Sky Lynx and Galaxy Shuttle: Sky Lynx doesn't have a robot mode at all whilst Galaxy Shuttle does have one.

    It couldn't have been Armade Jetfire as it wasn't even been released 10-15 years ago. Armada is from 2002.

    @Backscatter: Everyone still learns something each day. Yes, there are two versions of Galaxy Shuttle. Both toy versions seems not to be different at all ( I read this somewhere). The Victory version has different boxart than the Zone version. Also, on the back of the box of the Zone version you see pictures of Micromasters, something the Victory version doesn't have. :wink: 

    I've got an example of the Victory version. Please follow this link. Then you can compare them. :wink: 

    In fact, the Zone version of Galaxy Shuttle seems to be more regular on eBay.com than the Victory version.

    hehe nope. It was a big humanoid shape robot.. I think it had black and white coloring tho im not entirely sure. Thats why I think it might be a Galaxy Shuttle. It didnt had two parts that Im sure of. Just a big robot that could transform into a shuttle craft.:)  I got it off hands so I didnt come with a box:(

    Does it transform basicly by laying on its back and combining the feet? You may have Brave Granbird. It can combine with Brave Fighbird. The KO circulated a few years back but the actual series is older.

    Here's Granbird. There is one other possibility that I can think of, Thunder Dagwon. It was a fairly extensive remold of Galaxy Shuttle.
