    Didn't see this posted. Big news, in my opinion. Seibertron is reporting that Sky Lynx will, in fact, get a New Year's re-release in Japan (ala Predaking and Convoy). Here's what was posted at Seibertron:

    Ironically, this is Lynx's first release in Japan, but it's a great chance for fans who were never able to pick him up, like me! :rock  Here's a link to the Japanese site Snakas that has pictures of Lynx at a recent Japanese toy show, along with MP Skywarp, Nike Free Ultra Magnus, and the Bumblebee car: http://snakas.web.infoseek.co.jp/event/0708charaho.html

    As long as he's not outrageously priced, I'll pick him up.

    Good news. I had to get rid of my original, so hopefully the price on the reissue will be reasonable and I can pick him up again.

    How's this news? The convention reported at Autobase Aichi was over a month ago. We saw those pics and people even translated the info cards.

    Dude! I'll definitely pick a Sky Lynx up. Well, as long as he's less that $130 (which is what the original seems to average on Ebay).

    I'd take Omega, mine doesn't light up or walk. :(  But I don't have ANY Sky Lynx so this is great news!

    I'd imagine Japanese text, a new number assigned, but the original art and layout.
