    It's out at retail in Australia. It's out at retail in the UK. It is not out at retail in the US which sits directly between them.

    Sigh.

    I've been locked indoors for months now I NEED MY PLASTIC CRACK.

    Does UK stand for "really close to Quantumhawk's house" by any chance? Please? :(

    Also, @Sol Fury, your news posts are so much more alive than the others’. No offense to them, of course.

    I'm not sure if it's the failure of geography or spelling that hurts me more here. ;)

    Just a heads up to people. The blast effects will start to remove paint if left on the figure. This was after about 48 hours having left one effect on the "guns" they come with. 20200618_225222.jpg

    I still haven't seen him here in Ontario either.
    Guess he's taking the scenic route

    I had that issue with my Ultra Magnus. A blast effect came off covered in silver paint.

    CMDStore in Montreal/Quebec has him. He's definitely in Canada and the United States, he was listed as being in port a couple weeks back. Not sure why stores are sitting on them. (Well, if they are.)

    Could still be a backlog at the ports.

    Dang glad I didn't put the blast effects on my WFC Jetfire then...looking forward to getting this, ordered it on Walmart when they had it listed it at a leader price. Hopefully it's honored, fulfilled and shipped correctly.

    Alas amazon.co.uk don’t seem to acknowledge that Sky Lynx is out.

    Stay alert (for Scorponok)!

    My local Smyths is showing 3 in stock! I'll probably go next week with my kids and take a look

    They'll be sold out if you wait that long. He's that nice of a figure.

    Ehhh, I'll pass on this just like Jetfire. I never saw anything inherently wrong with CW Sky Lynx to warrant an expensive replacement. Maybe I'm just not that enamored by the character.

    The Meijer stores in the US have awful toy tracking. Like Best Buy, they lump together all toys of the same class. Meijer.com has a Sky Lynx listing that's been claiming to have in stock toys at various stores. However, those are all actually Jetfire figures.

    This is the first one that separates into his 2 components since his Foret mold. CW version pissed me off because it didn't.

    But the CW toy can form a combiner torso. That's got to count for something.
