    I never understood his alt mode, i know for a fact hes a Space Shuttle but was is that other creature he transforms to, and who's that blue creature? I always found Skylinx's alt mode weird lol

    Well, I've always called his alt. mode that utilizes the shuttle as his main body a dinosaur (of some sort) and the third mode, or the "blue creature" as you put it, is a cat of some sort, maybe a cougar? The reason Skylynx is a bit stranger than your normal TF is that it was brought into the toyline from elsewhere like Shockwave, the "first" TFs, deluxe Insecticons, etc. and was not designed internally by Hasbro and/or Takara. I'm sure someone else will post with the exact line.

    Well, wasn't he was supposed to be an alien of sorts anyway? I mean if nothing else, that could help explain why he was a little stranger. Also for what it's worth, I've always thought of Skylynx himself being the shuttle that transforms into the bird/pterodactyl thing, while the blue cat or whatever was his less vocal counterpart.

    You know, Sky + Lynx...

    I like the idea that Sky Lynx is a sort of prototype gestalt, the Lynx component and the Sky component, but they're sort of fused into a single personality (or were a single personality to begin with and were turned into a two bodied gestalt).

    I have a similar question about Tigertron.
    What was that striped cat-like thing he transformed into?
    Some sort of manatee maybe :confused: 

    Sorry! No offence but I couldn't help myself, but like someone earlier in the thread wrote the blue thing is probably a lynx.

    I just figured he split his personality between the bird and the Lynx, kind of like Prime does with the trailer and Roller. In "The Return of Optimus Prime part 2" when Prime asks Sky-Lynx to explain what happened, the Lynx part is doing all the talking and it had the same voice as the bird part

    He had a pretty cool personality thought, and he did help The Quints to bring back Optimus

    well given the history of the toy I think they did an awesome job with him I'd say he's one of my fav characters thinking about it.

    but as others have pointed out its 1 mind with the ability to have 2 body's should he chose.

    The shuttle is a bird/dinosaur, the blue container is a lynx.

    sky lynx is funky.

    his primary modes seem to be a dragon and a shuttle with some sort of freight container, but he can seperate in both is robotic and vehicle mode. his dragon mode is comprised of some sort of generic dino-bird and a pretty stylized lynx. im curious to know exactly how this affects his mental state. does he have one primary component when they split or does his conciousness occupy both equally? weve never seen both components able to use any higher mental functions at the same time, but we have seen both talk and interact on seperate occasions so i tend to think he is able to split his core conciousness into whichever component he likes while the other operates mostly as a drone or with severly limited and anamalistic intelligence. but his default is the combined draconic form.

    it would have been cool if the show had gone into it somehow but i suppose it would have made the writing process too involved and they were mostly after turn around speed. i guess its similar to omega, when his in alt mode is the tank a drone or is the rocket? if the rocket flies off and the tank doesnt disappear can it converse with someone? is it aware of what the rocket is doing? it is his head afterall so it presumably contains a lot of thinky hardware.

    Oh, right, a, lynx. Duh. I guess that's why he's not called Skycougar then. lol What can I say other than I was tired when I answered.
