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.

It's the laziest one yet...and yet it's the most aesthetically pleasing by MILES. :lol:

Terrible. The only good thing about it is the face sculpt.

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 don't care how good he looks, he's not worth $16.

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.

Yeah, robot mode is lazy as hell but his dragon mode is BOSS.

And the Preds look awesome lined up together...

I'd welcome the robot mode more if the roof of his mouth slid back over his head. Nevertheless, this figure pleases me.

I like this guy. The beast mode is better than the robot mode, but I like what they did with the head.

Agreed. Am I the only one who saw his face in the thumbnail, thought he was an homage to Wolfang/K-9, and was severely let down upon seeing the whole package?

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.

Not my favourite Predacon, but I'll still get it nonetheless.

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.

'Cuz once I saw Metroplex, everything else from Toy Fair just kinda' blurred together.

not much of a ''transformer'' but I do like the beast mode and I want all the predacons. Does this mean he's in stores now? I'm going wave three shopping. All I need is that big predaking and I'm done. :grin:
Re: In-Hand Images: Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Deluxe Skystalker (1475014)
Posted by RazorSlash92 on March 29th, 2013 @ 9:28pm CDT
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.

So, to get it in dragon mode, just close the mouth, bend the legs a bit, and pull back the tail.
That is one lame-ass transformation.

Regardless, this figure is way to awesome looking for me to pass it up if it ever pop up in my local store.
If it dont and I have no choice to buy it online because of shitty distribution, I'll have to pass.

Sorry for being cynical, but I still feel the burn over the fact that Canadian stores just got the Prime RID Deluxes Wheeljack, Bee, Cliffy, and Soundwave, but will never have the rest.

No. Close the mouth, bend the legs a bit, pull back the tail, bend the arms a bit, and stretch the crotch. There's a difference.

:P

Wow. He sucks! I like the dragon mode and i like the head sculpt quite a bit though.

They could have at least put his feet on a ball joint instead of the pin so he could get better poses. I can't stand feet that won't go flat. It just further establishes the perception ,for me, that this is a lazily executed figure.

Contrary to the negative views, I actually think this figure is pretty cool.

This is sadly pathetic. It is the summation of everything about Beastformers I despise - "Stand up, fiddle a little, drop the jaw / lower the head, he's transformed" is NOT a transformation. It's standing up. >.<
