    Was reading davidarruda's thread about Sky Lynx, and when I saw the pics of him next to the G1 mini-bots, I became extremely tempted. I still have $50 from Amazon left over from my birthday, and I can get one for About $47.00 shipped. Should I get him?

    More importantly, why or why not.

    I was trying to hold on to the money to get something else later, but I'm worried that I'll miss Sky Lynx and feel like an ass for it later.

    So what do you think?

    skip him. He doesn't look like a really cool guy...

    RotF has a few potential figures...

    Get him. He's underrated. Nothing in ROTF is worth getting.

    For less than $50? Definitely worth purchasing.

    Ahh...my mantra. I don't like the ROTF aesthetic, and if my experience with 2007 movie Ironhide and Wreckage are any indication, they won't be that much fun (for me) to play with. I prefer simpler stuff.

    The only reason I have those two is because Wreckage was a gift and Ironhide looks sweet with Trailbreaker reprolabels.

    If you don't buy poor Sky Lynx he'll be devoured by the Mechannibals!

    Get him. When I was a kid I literally begged my dad on the street corner for 30 min to buy him for me. By far my favorite transformer for a long time...until fort max.

    An AWESOME piece.

    I'm just not sure! I can also get a set of G1 mini-bots (the set with Bumblebee, Outback, Swerve, etc) and the Micromaster Military Patrol from Big Bad Toy Store through Amazon with $50.

    I love me some Micromasters, but is a MOSC set worth $17? Is the Mini-bot set worth $26?

    I hate having money to spend without a clear-cut plan on how to spend it! It's torture!

    Damn this thread - I just bought one thanks to reading it. $46 shipped for a brand new Sky Lynx is something I couldn't pass up.

    Go for sky lynx. He is much more impressive than a bunch of scrawny mini-bots. I have 3 (the one my dad bought for me, the reissue, and another original). Besides, you can go to my sales thread and pick out some original mini-bots if you wish :wink:

    You snooze, you lose - but I don't think it was the only one they had.

    Is that like the Langoliers?

    Yeah, it all just comes down to personal preference. If you dig the way he looks and you feel you can't live without one, get it.
    But be known that what you see is all you get. He's a toy that really relies on you being a big fan of the cartoon character.
