    So I've been thinking about all the upcoming Animated characters and wondering which ones they should definitely include when it hit me! SkyLynx would be a perfect addition to the cast; he has a humorous egotistical personality, every single part of his being is begging for the Animated treatment, he is a great Autobot warrior, he would be another addition to the few flying Autobots, and I could just picture him interacting so perfectly in the world of TFA, almost perfect Elite Guard material too. Any thoughts on this?

    I always loved Sky Lynx in G1, so It'd be neat to see him make a cameo or something. Maybe as an Elite Guard member.

    Please no, Sky Lynx has to be one of the most retarded transformers ever. Lets just leave him in the past where he belongs.

    personality wise, I could see him working, but in regards to his alt-modes not so much. I'd like to see, but I think they'd have to mess with him so much it wouldn't feel like him anymore.

    Interesting, I see the exact opposite, that he would be a perfect match for Animated, and there's a lot of character quirks to mine and he would fit in rather nicely with the Animated aesthetic.

    Well, what I mean is that a few of his alt modes are "beasts" which, with how big a deal it is that BA has a beast mode.

    I do agree that his mannerisms would fit though, but he would probably need quite an overhaul in his forms

    I agree again, stop reading my mind. Dump the animal modes, and make him a lone agent that reports directly to Magnus (over a jealous sentinel's head) and watch the sparks fly :D

    Its not a 'BIG DEAL' that BA has a beast mode (the dinobots have those too) the 'big deal' is that she is techno organic where the dinobots arent they just have alt mode based on prehistoric earth animals.

    Skylynx would be one of the best characters/toys in the Animated line!

    Well, personally I would make the modes a little more different, perhaps make it more griffon-like. I think the lynx half was so stupid, so I would prefer him being called SkyLinx and maybe be based on Blitzwing but with the ability to separate, kinda like a one man army, here are my preferable modes:

    Main: Griffon-like creature/ cybernetic being with upright walking capabilities.

    Top: Futuristic space shuttle.

    Bottom: Hover tank.

    Note, these are just ideas post your own, edit them in your ideal image, just don't criticise them.

    SkyLynx is one of those characters that I always liked, despite the fact that I thought his G1 toy and general design was stupid. It's kind of a paradox.

    He looked pretty dumb and his split modes were a bit awkward, but there was a lot of potential to be much cooler.

    Plus, I really liked the notion of a monstrous beast form character being not only sentient and intelligent, but also the Lieutenant Commander of the Autobots. That was always part of what made him interesting and different.

    I could see SkyLynx being one of the older TFs... part of some now-extinct subspecies of Cybertronian, who now fights on the side of the Autobots. I mean, he's basically a Cybertronian dragon, right? That might also explain his massive ego and sense of entitlement.

    Now this gives me a decent enough idea-
    Akin to the whole deal with Nova Prime an the others in the IDW-verse,
    Sky-lynx is lost when his shuttle appears to blow up during a mission. He struggles to survive on an alien world for many years, until a probe is sent to his suspected loaction, which manages to bring him and the shuttle back. But a-la "Price of Life" the probe messes up, and Sky-Lynx now has his shuttle as his new alt-mode. Years of survivng on his own cause him to come off as an arogant loner to the other Autobots.
