    Just had a random thought about Sky Lynx.... I remember in the cartoon how he talked both as the white bird (space shuttle half) and as the blue lynx with the same voice.... but is he the same entity even though he talks with both sections at the same time...whilst separated?

    A random thought....but it just kinda bugged me. I'm guessing its one entity...but still...kind of weird how he could separate and still talk with both sections separately...

    Yeah, that used to throw me for a loop as a kid.

    I say one.

    Yeah, I'd say one. The space shuttle and the lynx is a bit like the relationship between Prime and his trailer.

    Yeah but just imagine one of Prime's components (like Roller) started talking with Prime's voice...instead of the R2D2 beeps.....

    Sky Lynx is certainly a bit of an oddity.

    Well Roller doesn't have the vocal processors required for 'proper' speech. I agree though that they are not exactly the same. It was the best example I could come up with!

    Not too odd.

    Magmatron could split into 3 forms.

    But did they all talk with the same voice whilst separated into their forms? Wikipedia says about Magmatron - "While in his beast modes he is able to maintain a singular consciousness/personality." Guess thats similar...although I'm not familiar with that character.

    Lets just say Sky Lynx is an oddity in relation to the G1 cartoon with 'his' shifting consciousness...in his various forms.

    Yeah he did. It was like controlling 3 different bodies at the same time.

    Magmatron - Transformers Wiki

    Pretty cool if ya ask me.

    Never heard of that miotic spark. But I guess that's my something new I've learned today. I had always thought Sky Lynx was two seperate entities before looking at that. Now I'm not as sure.

    Maybe he's sorta like a Duocon, except both of his alt modes have their own transforms. Even though the Duocons were never in the show, I have to imagine they would have been depicted as talking through each component even when they were separated.

    He is one and the same entity. Both parts share the same voice (why wouldn't he, it's the same being.)

    I have never gotten the feeling that he was more than one being.

    I always thought of him as one entity, with the bottom becoming a drone when necessary.

    I remember as a kid that they had names Sky Lynx and then the obvious combined form. I don't remember if it was a paperwork thing or if I came up with that but as a kid they had two names and the same voice and didn't have to speak to each other to communicate

    If there were a comparison, consider him an intermediate step between the Duocons and Triple Changers. (Dreamwave perspective.)
    Like the Duocons, he features two seperate halves that transform into his robot mode.
    Like the Triple Changers, those two units have 3 modes (vehicle/transport, robotic animal, top/bottom of combined robot mode).
    Unlike the Duocons, his two halves have a stable, singular personality.
    The Shuttle and Transport work together, but are not both necessary for a single vehicle mode. Which is why I say they are 2 seperate vehicle modes, for the dino-bird and the two-tailed lynx. That being said, the transport module makes horizontal take-offs and landings much easier.

    I always considered him as one (same goes for Reflector and Omega Supreme).
