Sky Lynx somehow looks better here than in Jon's review, but I still can't see this mold's weapon firing gimmick as anything but the "Vestigial Bike-Kibble Attack", and the choice of colors makes Sky's wheels look rusty, rendering him weaker than his mold-mates.

Unless...maybe it's a Cosmic-Rust Attack! That would actually be an appropriately intimidating power for an ancient revived monster. Sure he didn't have that in the movie, but then he didn't really have a color scheme either...

In spite of these two being showcharacters, I like them far less then Skystalker and Grimwing. They just are not accurate enough to the screen to hold my interest. Skip-a-di-do-dah.

I hate how the show went and picked the least interesting Predacon molds, then managed to make the show models even less interesting. And it's a shame they dragged Sky Lynx's name into it all, since the original Sky Lynx was one of the most interesting TFs from the original series. Bah.

Custom request 2.5 years in the making. With luck I'll have it by the end of the month.

At the end of the day, all I have to say.
Rumble is blue, Frenzy is gay.
And with that, I'm completely okay.

Any chance that we'll also see gallery pics of the thicker-striped variant of Weaponizers Bumblebee? ;)

Probably not at this point ... I didn't know there was a variant and I'm not paying more than the $20 I saw these things going for. If you see one on eBay for $25 shipped, I'll do it.

I like these two toys. I bought 'em both and have no regrets.

This thicker stripe variant is the one we got here in the UK. Well, it's what was on the shelves when I bought him at least :P I wasn't aware there was more than one version either.

Up next in the galleries of Seibertron, we have a couple of Bumblebees and these guys came here to chew bubblegum and hunt Predacons...and they are all out of bubblegum. From Takara Tomy comes Transformers Go! Hunter Bumblebee while Nova Blast Bumblebee hails from Target's exclusive Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Predacons Rising subline. Both of these figures are redecos of the original Beast Hunters Bumblebee.

So...Hunter BB is just the Hasbro figure w/o the silver paint on the hood vents. Wow, Takara, I'm impressed......NOT!

Seriously now Bumblebee, go away. :BANG_HEAD:

That said, the hunter mold does look good. Shame a new Decepticon character and deco wasn't made for it instead. That would work. :CON:

It also is a darker shade of yellow, doesn't have the red swirls in his yellow plastic like the Hasbro version, and has sparkly black paint on his spoiler instead of a flat black paint. It's a minor variant but a variant nonetheless. Predaking and Hunter Bumblebee have the most minor differences of the entire Go! line.

The missiles also look a ta brighter, as do the headlights.

But, yeah, Hunter Bumblebee's differences are so subtle as to be virtually unnoticeable by the naked eye.

At least Dragotron has the virtue of possibly being a different character from Predaking. ;)

Or perhaps the original guy, since Predaking is a clone after all.

I've seen both variants for sale at my stores down here in the Sunshine State, sometimes even right next to each other on the same shelf. :P
