Fellow Malaysian Seibertronian albnok got some nice hunting trophies from his Transformers hunt deep in the Malaysian wild. Not only did he find Generations G2 Menasor in stock but also every single deluxe from the Sky Reign wave. Here is what albnok had to say:

Transformers News: Combiner Wars G2 Menasor and Sky Reign (Lynx King) limbs found at retail in Malaysia

I could have also bought Scattorshot but chose not to, in hopes of the Computron release. No Legends figures in stock yet.

In other news, G2 Silverbolt is tighter where it comes to putting his gun in, and G2 Blackjack doesn't stay on G2 Motormaster (though, G2 Motormaster has the gear fix.)

The comics with Hound/Smokescreen/Trailbreaker/Wheeljack are Combiner Wars #17-20.


albnok then gave a more detailed breakdown of the comics included with the figures:

albnok wrote:
Trailbreaker CW #17 The TF 40 : The Possible Light
Wheeljack CW #18 Windblade 2: Mistakes And Mayhem
Hound CW #19 The TF 41: You, Me, And The Universe
Smokescreen CW #20 Windblade 3: (no title?)


An other interesting tidbit is the name Lynx King found in the specs on Trailbreaker, as you can see near the "subgroup" heading. This name only appears on that character's bio where it is marked "sky reign" for the others.

The subgroup for Trailbreaker is Lynx King, though his text does say he forms an arm or leg of Sky Reign. Hound/Smokescreen/Wheeljack have Sky Reign as a subgroup. Sounds like Lynx King was the original name for Sky Reign, and they forgot to correct it!

China has better stock but I can't read Chinese and dare not take the plunge using Google Translate. It's funny how hard it is to get stocked considering the toys are made nearby, in Vietnam!

I should also mention that the culture is a bit different in the city - the toy collector shops are easy to get to by train, and our courier services aren't that dependable (I've had to go to the post office because they say nobody was in, when there was...) That, and there generally isn't a culture of returning items or accepting returns. Thus the only time I'd get something shipped is if I cannot physically buy it in the country!


Thanks for letting us in on your cultural toy habits!

Hey albnok, if it isnt too much trouble, could you take pictures of the back of the comics, which shows the bios. Those are bios we have never seen before. If its clear enough to read from your photo, we will news it for all to see!

"Lynx King" sounds way cooler than "Sky Reign", IMO. >:oP

The Lynx King's Sky Reign?


Sky Reign of the Lynx King?



Sounds like a bad ass book.

Malaysia can!

These "trophies" have definitely found themselves in more places than one over here. Same can't be said about our actual wildlife...

Thanks! But having them all on one image makes the writing a bit small. Could you make it one picture per comic, like that it would be bigger?

I know Sabreblade tried something above to make the picture bigger but I get a broken image and a non working link.

albnok's image is actually huge, it's just this website that's shrinking it. Click this link to view the full size.

I was interested in buying all of Sky Reign until I saw the light bars on Smokescreen. Geez, Hasbro, he's a race car. You couldn't even spring to get rid of the police lights? I just . . . I can't do it. It's too high on the lameness meter.

All I really wanted was Sky Lynx, so I'll get Liokaiser instead (or whatever English name they give him).

Neat! I like the gear detailing near the balljoint.

I liked the nod to Trailbreaker's previous change of name.

That was nice, especially considering they had a Trailcutter toy only 2 years ago :BOT:

Boy, Hound's and Wheeljack's bios sure aren't IDW-based (even despite Wheeljack's mentioning IDW's Ultirex University).
