    Shattered Glass Sky Lynx based on TFCC comic. (2nd place at Botcon 2011)

    I wanted to make an updated beast mode with more articulation, more realistic lynx head, feathers, and claws. The shattered glass version offered a more fun paint job and the lizard frill. I also added a solid fuel tank and booster rockets (shuttles can't fly by themselves!). Its made from a g1 sky lynx, armada jetfire wings, energon omega supreme foot, universe razorclaw wings, legs, tiger head, and arms. The lizard frill is from beast wars reptilion. The booster is a junker from g1 countdown, and the booster rockets are from machine wars soundwave. Thanks to all the board members who helped me find all the parts!

    The lizard frill happened to fit pretty well. The head attaches to the neck with a ball joint for more articulation. The head is interchangeable with the lynx head on the same ball-joint. I also added another point of articulation in the neck via magnets. A lot of dremmeling led to the attachment of Jetfire's wings, but the update and pose-ability were worth it. The wing feather missiles still launch. It took some tinkering to attach the lynx legs to omega supreme's foot, but I like how it turned out - and even managed to eeck out a "submarine" vehicle mode for it. The lynx head attaches with magnets. The shuttle attaches to the lynx portion via magnets. The same magnets can attach the shuttle or lynx to the solid fuel tank. The booster rockets can either attach to the shuttle wings or the side of the fuel tank.

    Nice! I wondered if anyone would ever make a SG Sky Lynx. Never would have thought of using that BW frill for the head but it works!

    Epic dude! Say, since he's shattered glass Sky Lynx does he have low self-esteem?

    I was wondering exactly who made that. I knew it would win something the moment I saw it. It's pretty amazing.
