    My roommates have presented gifts of transforming robots upon me. One of my roommates gave some bootleg Converters he got at a CVS. These bootlegs are based on molds of another old transforming series. The ones he gave me seem to transform into various birds like an owl, a parakeet, and an eagle... I think. I'm not at home at the moment... so I'm kinda' guessing. ^^;

    To add to the awesomeness, my other roommate found his old Sky Lynx in a box of old toys his parents gave him. He agreed to let me have it. Which totally rocks, because I've been wanting a Sky Lynx ever since I started rewatching Season 3 of the original G1 series. He's got such a wildly unique look and he's such a cocky English bastard. Not that arrogant robots are anything new to the Autobots. Then again, randomly british robots didn't seem to be anything new to the G1 series, either. Anyways, I really liked the character, and I'm glad to have him in my collection, now.

    The roommate that gave me the Convertors is obsessed with bats, so he kept that one.

    Sky Lynx was one of G1 figures I've been REALLY wanting for my collection. Now all I need is the rest of the G1 and G2 dinobots and I'll be a happy camper. ;)

    As long as Robat is loved and cared for, everything is a-OK.

    You lucky so and so, really want a Sky Lynx, but at 90$ for the reissue...I'm gonna have to pass on getting one for quite some time.

    That's pretty cool of your friend.

    Perceptor's voice always sounded like one of those generic british butlers you'd see in TV shows. As for Starscream, well, I never really honestly saw him as british sounding, but people constantly tell me he has a light british accent to his voice, so I went with it.

    i hated the toy initially but then got suckered in thx to his prominence in both the cartoon and US comics.

    I probably would've gotten a Japanese reissue if my friend hadn't found this one. Saved me a good $90. ;)

    I so want those Converter KOs. I found em once, but didnt have the money for them. When I did get the money, I found the other 2 sets advertised on the back of the box and bought them both. Went to a few other CVSs and couldnt find the Converters.

    Hmmm... if you want, I might be willing to trade you the ones I have for something. Not sure what, though.
