    What sword is that? I’m assuming it’s from an upgrade kit since it looks like TR Alpha Trion’s but not exactly

    Has any upgrade kits been announced for Scorpy? Speaking of which, one of my kids has lost part of his shield somewhere in the house.

    Just received Skylynx and been putting him thru the paces (didn't get to give him some pics yet).

    Thoughts?

    He is one heavy spacerobokitty.
    The spacedragon mode is more proportional.
    I love the pseudo Shuttle details.(heat tiles etc)
    He's got actual landing gears( even the crawler's twin tails got some purpose too)
    I like the base mode
    No electronics.
    Really "magnificent"

    P.S. Back when we were kids, the motorized "Technic" gimmicks were awesome but really limit the figure (poseability and transformation wise. Once they get gunked by battery leaks, buh buh playability.)

    Cons?

    Wished the gold accents were chromed.
    He kinda shrinked.
    My version is the JP Takara one, I am missing the so called pre cut map and decoder which the tfwiki said was included.Oh, and I checked.:mad:  It seems that ALL of my Takara versions are lacking the decoder or am I just "lucky":( 

    Aside from the cons, another great "re-issued modern take of the character/figure/toy.

    Attached is my proof of purchase.

    My new configuration with Sky Lynx and Omega. I like the shuttle being parallel with the rocket.

    The original was much bigger. Should have been more clearer about that. Gomenasai.

    You sure about that...?


    Here he is next to G1...they are the same size or very close in ship mode, and he's (ER version) much bigger in "robot" mode.

    I think nostalgia makes you remember things a bit off.
