It's an OK enough toy, but for me it's far less interesting than Lazerback and Ripclaw. At least those two, in their robot forms, don't just look like the dragon standing on its hind legs. Skystalker's got the laziest, most uninspired transformation. They couldn't even give the two forms different heads! You just open the dragon's mouth, and there's the robot head peeking out. 8-} The robot looks like a dragon standing up, and the dragon looks like a robot on all fours.

Like I said before: most of the Beast Hunters line doesn't capture me. Smokescreen, Shockwave, Optimus, and the Legends-scaled Terrorcons are the only ones doing it for me.

I can literally only tell two things that happen to transform. The head opens, and the hips separate (to widen). It doesn't even look like he changes stance for the alt mode. Pathetic, I think the Action Master Elites transformed more than this

Don't misunderstand my appreciation of the aesthetic as my liking it. It's still a total waste of plastic. Now, a repaint of BW Fuzor Sky Shadow in this deco? THAT would be amazing.

I wasn't directing my post towards you. I was just stating that though he looks good, he's not worth the $16-$20 people would pay for him. I'll wait for BH to show up at Five Below to pick him up.

No worries, no worries. I wasn't trying to be rude either, I hope it didn't come off that way! It really is a shame these are coming out so poorly though. I mean, there's precedence for GOOD beastformers (like the previously mentioned Sky Shadow), and they're just not even trying on the design side. The BH deluxes are all either retools or the same quadruped dragon, with a very few exceptions... and that's truly a shame.

I don't know why you that he would be a Wolfang/K-9 homage: we've seen his official images back when Toy Fair was kicking.

Why am I only just now realising how bad this figure is? Scrolling through the photos I was struggling to determine at which point he'd been transformed. It's bad that it makes me question the entire line.

Also, I wonder why this figure is listed as Skystalker in the case assortments on BBTS.

I'll honestly probably pick him up. I admit the robot mode is pretty flawwed, but I honestly like it more than Lazerback's. And I LOVE that dragon mode. A lot. I'll pick him up when I get some cash to spare, but he's not really an instant buy I'll search for.
