    Whatever hovers your craft, man. I wasn't attacking your preferences, I was just defending others. You are valid too. <3

    This.
    I really do wish people would learn the difference...
    It is definitely a backwards priority IMO.

    I've given it some thought in the past and messing around with my Hun-gurr I actually think he could be retooled into a lion. I don't have the figure to hand but just fro memory you basically flip his beast mode back to front and also flip some of the beast legs have the Lion head be on Hun-gurr's butt and somehow end up on the combiner chest. There's probably more to it but I can't remember right now.

    Fun time to speculate. Here’s what I’m seeing from the blurry images of Sky Lynx: There will be a bird only mode and a Lynx only mode due to these parts separating in the base mode image. Very easy to include bird legs and a cat head. The feet might have paws that flip out from the gray plastic bits. He might come up to Predaking’s crotch, not that big. Everything looks good.
    Scorpy looks fantastic. Others have mentioned regarding the head size(Voyager-ish or Deluxe +) from last year’s convention teaser and I totally agree. Scorponok’s total height by my estimation seems to fall shorter than Metroplex’s. I really hope I’m wrong about that. Like everyone else, I want nothing more than a great match for Fort Max. Also hope for them to include his big gun and shield but the chances are slim. Hasbro seem to go minimalist with the Titans. So much to look forward to at Toyfair. Just a few more weeks.

    I’m confident Sky Lynx will meet everyone’s requirements with regards to alt-modes and all the fan-service you can handle! Last year we got an actual Reflector with camera mode, the first proper CHUG Shockwave and a mother loving, obscure as hell, Apeface with all of its proper gimmicks.

    I’m sure HasTak will give us ‘Duocon’ Sky Lynx with all the fixings.

    Here's some more pics from the gallery I made of Earthrise Grapple (link in my sig). He's a nice toy with a very vintage feel. I know that won't be to everybody's tastes but I really dig it. I am now even more excited for the rest.

    Yeah, going off of Scorpy's headsize to body ratio, I'm gonna guesstimate he'll come up to around Fort Max's shoulder. So about a head shorter.

    Can't wait to see heaps of pictures of this guy later this month!

    I've never liked Grapple and had no interest in a toy of him.... Until this figure was first revealed.

    Can't wait to get him - great pics man.

    Great photos! Do you have a pic with side-by-side robot comparison between the RTS, Earthrise, and G1?

    Wow, I never thought of SkyLynx as a DuoCon but you’re kinda right.

    I have the original and the G2 one based on the unreleased deco. The G2 one is nice and tight, but the original G1 version is floppy.

    The repaint possibilities from the Wave 1 Earthrise figures is suprisingly a lot.
    We can get, Inferno, Artfire, and Hauler repainted and retooled from Grapple.
    We can get Trailbreaker and Sureshot from Hoist.
    All the Seekers including the Coneheads: Thundercracker, Skywarp, Dirge, Thrust, Ramjet, Sunstorm, Slipstream, Hotlink, Bitstream, Acidstorm, Sunstorm, Ionstorm, and Redwing from Starscream.
    Bumblebee, Hubcap, Runabout, Runamuck, and Goldbug from Cliffjumper.
    In addition to Sunstreaker, we can get Tracks, Exhaust, and Pointblank from Wheeljack.
    Ultra Magnus, Nemesis Prime, Thunderclash, and Nova Prime from Optimus Prime.
    There are at least 30 possible repaints and retools from the Earthrise Wave 1 figures that can be made.

    The ones at the top of my list of possible repaints are Trailbreaker, Dirge, Thrust, Ramjet, Artfire, Inferno, Pointblank, Sureshot, and Thunderclash.

    Runamuck and runabout WILL NOT be any sort of retool of cliffjumper, that doesn’t fit the pattern of fan vote winners being new molds aside from the one time we had 6 winners, and why would sureshot be a remold of hoist? A dune buggy from a tow/pickup truck?

    I admit Runabout, Runamuck, and Sureshot being mold mates with Hoist and Cliffjumper is a stretch, I just think it is a possibility of happening.
