Wheeljack looks so terribly unpainted :roll:

Hound is already sold out. But ordered Smokescreen and Wheeljack for myself. Needed a new Smokescreen anyway, and as for Wheeljack, just wanted him. Lol

What do they have against just molding that little elbow joint on the Dead End mold the same color as the rest of the figure and painting just a tiny piece of it to make it seamless with the rest of the figure? #-o

I really thought I was ok with the Hound/Swindle sculpt, but now that just looks absurd.

As far as repaints go, they look alright (except for Smokescreen who just looks too lazy), but the choice of characters going with Sky Lynx seems a little strange. The combiner is called Sky Reign and the four limbs are all cars.

Even if they didn't have some flying characters to go with, maybe some guys that actually were in the same wave as Sky Lynx might have seemed appropriate.

Kup - Offroad mold
Springer - Rook mold
Blurr - Dead End mold
Hot Rod - Breakdown mold

Yeah, I also find that weird since Skylynx is the only bot in all these G1 characters being made as toys in the CW line to be from the post movie era while it seems the main idea Hasbro is going for (from what I can tell) is pre movie era.

EDIT: Yeah, there is rodimus, but I was looking more at limbs and torsos.

Well, in the Marvel Comics version, Sky Lynx existed in the present day (the 1980s) rather than the future (the 2000s), and was an old friend of Wheeljack's. So there is at least that connection between those two.

The guys at botcon alluded to his being a favorite of the design team, as well as being popular with fans in general. I kinda agree that the team doesn't really fit with a flier, but what other fliers were there? alpha bravo as Springer... pass...

We know that's why they made Sky Lynx, but it isn't fiction justification for why he's paired with four guys he's rarely ever been associated with. I was talking about this when I mentioned Wheeljack and Sky Lynx having been old friends in Marvel G1.

Fiction justification, please, they just have to have it happen in the comics, and there. Honestly, the reasons for this mash-up are probably more worldy than fictitious - like trademark, or that kids like good guys, or something else. They could have given us jetfire out of airraid, they both have moving wings...

Or that the choices for the four limb characters were simply that they're ones that could be easily made from the preexisting Prowl, Swindle, Offroad, and Breakdown molds.

The point is, though, that most people would expect a Sky Lynx combiner to have the guy teamed up with 1986/"Season 3" Autobots rather than 1984-1985/"Seasons 1-2" Autobots. My Wheeljack/Sky Lynx justification was in response to that.

And it was Rook, not AB, whom was suggested for Springer.

I was going off of someone else's comment that he has all land based limbs when his name is Sky Reign; I was wondering what other :BOT: fliers could've been added to sky reign.

I think instead that most people would expect Skylynx to not be a combiner :-P

The choices for limbs is strange, but I am ok with it since this combiner will be displayed separated. And if they had at least painted the faux windshield on Jackie he would look soooo much better :BOT:

The choices don't bother me that much. I'm still getting them anyway. It just seems a little random.

The other concept they seem to be going for is getting the whole first line of cars out there as limbs. Again, there's probably a better choice than Smokescreen. Ratchet from First Aid may have seemed better since it would only be the second use of that mold (re-mold).

Best way to handle this is for all of us to start posting in this topic. Not sure why it doesn't get used.
Because there's a more active thread in Toy Discussion: transformer-toys-available-for-pre-order-instock-online-thread-t104499.php

That's a more active section of the forums as well, which is probably why this thread concept has better adoption over there.

Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Downshift, we have our first North American listing for the Combienr Wars G2 sets with a listing of G2 Superion found on Walmart.ca. It has the same price previously found on the Toysrus computer database, 149.92$ Canadian. This listing tells us that the initial G2 box sets will not be retailer exclusive and that they are indeed meant to start selling this holiday season. This should be available in the states sometime soon, either a Walmart or Toysrus (or Target since I here they still exist over there).

The listing also offered new stock images which are less touched up than usual as well as Walmart's own brand of bio:

Superion is driven by one thing and one thing only: a desire to obliterate the enemy. He attacks Decepticons – on the ground or in the air – with all-out force.
Convert, attack and destroy with this incredible 7-in-1 Superion Collection Pack!

For me, that's a good thing considering I won't get anymore money until after Christmas. Although, I'm not sure how I can get this, Sky Reign, Grand Galvatron, and PC-08-9 in one swing, so I might have to wait on G2 Superion and the upgrade kits.
