    The original description we got for Sky Lynx said he came with a micromaster named Astroscope, a satellite named after the minicon (see the link Jtprime posted). Warden later confirmed Astoscope didn't make the budget and was cut from the final product.

    There were plans for Earthrise version?

    That would have been neat to have him in the package as a Shuttle the way OS had Countdown. Too bad.

    It really would have been neat. I plan to put Generations Payload (that came with Cosmos) with Sky Lynx to homage the idea of Astroscope.

    Yes! I'd love for Astroscope to get a new toy somehow since he was cut from Sky Lynx.
    Especially if it means we get a new Requiem Blaster team.

    Tinkering with ER OP last night, it's such a great toy on it's own.
    Although I agree that the trailer is meh.

    The trailer, is not good for SS-38. It's too small.
    Probably the KBB MP10V trailer may work with SS-38

    Only legends figures (from Titans Return) can fit ER OP's trailer except TR Beachcomber for having a wide rear tires. Wheelie, Brawn, Seaspray can fit it in.
    Kinda disappointed that it can't fit a Deluxe car. Maybe that's trade off of "scaling down" WFC line.

    But in a REAL WORLD SCALE at Truck's Trailer can fit a regular size car and not just the small and compacts like Eco-Cars and the Mini Coopers.

    ER OP is one Hip-Waist away from capturing overall G1 aesthetic.
    It seems Hasbro could've used Siege OP's Hip & Waist part for ER Prime yet a part of me thinking they made a switcheroo.
    To give each version their distinct features or maybe saying to fans, "Hey, you're not getting full 1984 OP in our WFC line easily, Buy MPs"

    But on bot mode, he clearly scales with previous lines Deluxes and Legends.
    RTS Jazz still looks good and scale with ER Prime. Some Classics and TFU 2.0 Deluxes might not fit with ER Prime's bot scale so better keep, throw or sell the likes of Blueface Ironhide and Ratchet.

    Some Combiner Wars Voyagers and Leaders (at most) will have a hard time to fit in with Earthrise's scale if you want to give it a try.

    ER Prime's trailer can be improve if you put Battle Masters from the Siege line.
    And add that Roller figure from T30's Legends Optimus Prime.

    I was able to fit siege deluxe smokescreen into the trailer, also saw some pics on Instagram with sideswipe fitting inside (can test that myself later)

    I posted various pics in the EAT thread fitting some Deluxe class figures in there:

    Siege Prowl molds will fit.
    Cyberverse Deluxe Bumblebee and Hot Rod will fit
    SS Barricade and Dropkick (car) will fit. SS Shatter (car) will only fit if you open up the trailer first.

    Hmmm will check that. I never tried Siege Sideswipe yet.
    I guess Deluxe Flat/Low-Height Cars can fit but can they roll outside the trailer too?

    I actually prefer the Earthrise one's hips. I think having them be part of the thighs is better because it has much better range. I don't have Earthrise Optimus yet, but Siege Starscream is the same way, and as a result, can kneel very well. The Classics Optimus can kneel, but I couldn't get the Siege Optimus to do a convincing kneeling pose because of the crotch piece being a hindrance.

    Of the ones I mentioned, yes, except for Shatter. Her roof molding won't fit the door but will fit inside the trailer itself.

    Yeah, skinny, low-profile vehicles will fit. Of course, ER Cliffjumper will fit.

    I have various CW/UW limbs and none of them fit.

    Even some legends figures, notably jets, will not fit.

    All those brilliant gunmetal highlights look so handsome on him.

    The shuttle looks super nice, but I'm not a fan of the other modes.

    Maybe I'll just get my space shuttle fix from the micromaster set.

    I just saw a single Optimus and #2 Astrotrains in ER boxes( and the Micromaster Hotrod and Militart teams) at TRU. The drone robot in Optimus' cab is molded gray but in the box it was blue purple. Even the box images had his optics yellow (siiiigh) At least Hb fixed his blue fists.

    Great I skipped the TR version. Instant buy!:bowdown:

    There was no Titan Return Sky Lynx, you're thinking of Combiner Wars Skylynx.
    Dang, I can't wait to see a comparison between these guys.

    Really glad that we saw better pictures of Sky Lynx before this lot. These static poses don’t do the mold justice.

    My bad.CW Skylynx. Great I skipped that. This version is a great upgrade of the original.
