    Anyone might be able to translate the Sky Lynx story for us mere mortals? :)

    The Sky Lynx story is quite interesting - looks like after the merger, a member of the Takara Transformers team saw a listing in Tomy's catalog that looked like Sky Lynx ("Shuttle Dinosaur"). They worked on it and well - here he is.

    Can't wait for Sky Lynx to be released. I've got him preordered with WST Swoop and the stocking stuffer.

    Someone needs to ask Aaron Archer at Botcon what he thinks of Sky Lynx being reissued. I seem to recall he once said he has one on his desk as a reminder of how absurd the design is.

    Takara-Tomy employee: "Why Sky Lynx? I mean, he doesn't really look like a lynx. I think he looks more like a puma."

    Hmm... interesting that the Black Arcee has Allspark blue on her. Though I guess she's had that all along. Funny that she's not being released in the US though considering as I think we'd have heard something about that by now.

    I'm pretty happy that Sky Lynx is getting reissued, but I'm praying really hard here that I've got the money to get him before he get's overpriced or sells out. :lol

    Lets hope that this merger will continue to bring us MORE "Impossible Reissues." :thumb
