New Sky Lynx image from the Australian Toy Fair

Postby Omegatrion84 » Sun Mar 01, 2020 4:22 pm

Greetings all. Courtesy of our friends from down under, Ozformers has posted images from their toy fair this weekend on the Ozformers Facebook page! A multitude of items were on display here, showing off product from all the major Transformers lines, including Earthrise, Studio Series, Cyberverse, Botbots and even Masterpiece. The most interesting image to note here is the Sky Lynx display which included the original G1 Sky Lynx next to his new Earthrise figure! This is our first direct comparison between these two "magnificent" specimens, giving us a good side by side look at the old and the new. Earthrise Sky Lynx appears to be even larger than the original with a darker shade of blue and red to go along with all the bells and whistles of modern engineering. Sky Lynx would be pleased.

We have provided all the images from the Ozformers Facebook post for your viewing pleasure. Give them a look!

Are you excited about all these new releases coming down the pipe? Does this magnificent new Sky Lynx tickle your fancy? Let us know in the comments down below and keep it tuned to Seibertron.com for all your Transformers needs!

For the life of me I cannot persuade any Target associate to retrieve the Earthrise Deluxes from the stockroom. I'll provide the accurate DPCI number, they'll show me they have 3 or so on hand, and then they simply state they can only replenish and retrieve from back if there are none on the shelf (plenty of Seige on in-stock). Just had to vent. I live in Central New York state and I thought we'd see these out in retail by now. Okay. End of rant. Thank you all for listening.

So since the new commander class skylynx looks to be about the same size as G1. Does anyone have a G1 figure they can take a few pictures of him with some siege/ER figures to see the scale?

You're right. I didn't even think of that. I just need to be patient bc they'll be on shelves in full for months on end before I know it.

Its frustrating, but remember for every person posting "I GOT ONE" There are hundreds of non sightings. Remember that Amazon has the Deluxes slated for March 31st. That means they are roughly expecting to get their shipments NOW, and to have them disteibited through the various hubs before the 31st. What we are seeing is all early days.

Anyone that has Cliffjumper already, can u put his backpack on upside down? I was thinking of a great Goldbug figure coming out of that. Goldbug is one of the last characters I dont have and really like.

Finally Earthrise showed up at my Target. Cliffy and Ironworks were the only ones on the peg. Hoist is their wavemate, correct?

Target also had the Siege battlemasters at 30% off, and they had Singes and Rungs.

My bro came through for me today, while out in Litchfield, AZ he found ER Optimus and Soundbarrier. Apparently there were also two ER Astrotrains. Just opened them and took this pics but I am ridiculously happy with Soundbarrier. He literally does nothing to transform but lay down while his shield bridge flips over but I dig the play style. Definitely gonna do much more with Optimus tomorrow.

The colors may not quite match the G1 toy, but they're a pretty good match for the G1 box art:

(Also, "not the exact right shade of blue" seems like a fairly minor complaint in the grand scheme of things, but maybe that's just me.)

The blue doesn't match the toy particularly well, but it's fairly close to the cartoon.

Anybody do much pre-ordering on Target? I did a preorder last week and the auth charged dropped from my account last Thursday. This morning it is back. Figures ain't shipping till September so this has me confused and I was wondering if anyone else has experienced similar. I also got charged by Hasbro Pulse for Cliffjumper so hopefully he'll be in hand soon.

They're finally trickling in to my area as well. If anyone wants an Earthrise Prime, I can get if for you at cost plus shipping. Or loose for $45 shipped in the US.

Can you do just the Optimus figure without the trailer, for ~$25 without the box?
G2/Action Master/obscure variant-inspired redecos and retools are my lifeblood

Looking for:
- the Headmaster head for Legends LG56 Perceptor, LG59 Blitzwing, LG22 Skullcruncher, or LG30 Weirdwolf
- Unite Warriors Computron's Lightspeed
- Combiner Wars Air Raid
- rifle and shoulder guns from Siege Bluestreak
- rifle from Siege Red Alert

So, yesterday was the approximate ship date for wave 1 of Earthrise from Pulse. Has anybody heard anything? My 2 remaining pre orders (Starscream and Grapple) are still listed as unfulfilled. Just curious.

I only have Ironworks left on pre-order and the charges on him just went through today. My guess is he will ship tomorrow. I have often gotten the ship nitification from Fedex earlier than the one from Hasbro.
