LeAwesome1 also has this to say about Sky Lynx, gathered from his time with him so far!

LeAwesome1 wrote:Overall I love this figure. I don't know much about Sky Lynx, but I love the design and this definitely hit the mark better than my now sold CW version. The vehicle modes for both look incredible, and its very easy to connect and separate the two halves (maybe too easy). The bird mode is quite hard to stand up but when you do is glorious, and the lynx also looks great, I think I may prefer the lynx out of the two. The combined mode is obviously what I'll display him in and it looks great, very happy with how it turned out. My only minor complaint is that the transformation really isn't that hard, infact I'd say some of the smaller ER releases are more complex. But, it looks magnificent. Also, the wings are attached via mushroom pegs and one of mine keeps falling off, so may have to make that a bit tighter. Everything else is great! The base mode was also a surprise, I rather enjoyed looking at it. Bit too small to be a proper base, but looks the part. Only problem is the shuttle doesn't seem to peg in very well to the base, so it relies on that little ramp to prop him up. But, again, overall this is fantastic and I recommend to anyone.

I really like the lynx but dislike the bird for some reason...

As for the Seekers, I hope the 2-pack won't be just online but in stores as well.

I don’t really see a difference between Starscream and Thundercracker. Maaaaaaybe a smirk on ‘Sceamer? Skywarp’s shouting face is lowkey annoying, but I can get over it. Definitely need these and the inevitable Coneheads.

yeah that alternate face for the seekers just outright sucks; having had a good time to check out starscream, I can safely say that I don't want any of them, the head just seems so tiny compared to the boxy body

Is he being released across the UK already? Pulse has him listed for September. If so, that's really early.

GIMME!

Amazing figure! Only concern is that bird mode head is big for the body...but that ain't putting me off.

Hasbro finally made a transformer I want to buy. If I can make it work with my masterpiece collection I'll buy it.

We already knew Earthrise would include a new Smokescreen and while it could be assumed that we would get the rest of the Datsuns in this new Earthrise mode, it always helps to get some confirmation. Well, we now know the product code for the upcoming Bluestreak toy. Of course, until we see the images or more listings, it may be something else, but logic points toward this simply being Earthrise Bluestreak, which we all guessed was coming. You can see the item number in the tab for the following link: https://www.ideeundspiel.com/p/tra-wfc- ... ERE74635L0

TRA WFC Bluestreak
Hasbro product number: E74635L0

For those wondering, Siege Bluestreak was E8291.

The same site also had the product numbers for the following two listings:

Ironhide and Prowl 2 pack:E74615L0

Alternate Universe Optimus Prime:E74625L0

This was found by fellow Seibertronian JT Prime.

Interesting, but what I’m curious about is what the Alternative Universe Prime is. I think from some leaked images that it could be a remold of the Siege Ultra Magnus/Galaxy Upgrade Mold, but what Prime fits the mold the best?

Might as well just throw the retools into two-packs. Pair Ratchet with Red Alert, Mirage with Hound, and make Sideswipe solo with his proper equipment. But what really intrigues me is this Alternate Universe Prime. We've gotten the TF Cybertron one. My guess is Armada Prime.

I really don't want this set to be scalped to the max, especially when there's been a frustrating lack of Siege Skywarp but Thundercracker and Starscream are still around.
Re: New In-Hand Photos Of Earthrise Commander Class Sky Lynx (2065882)
Posted by Thunderboltprime on May 30th, 2020 @ 9:58pm CDT
Possibly Armada, but I thought the leaked images didn’t exactly look like the prototype of Armada that was shown with Star Convoy? I could just be remembering it wrong

I think he is still available over Amazon. Got mine shortly after it came out.

The most widespread current theories are either Shattered Glass or RiD 2001/Car Robots.

You know, I could totally see RiD2001 Optimus as a massive retool/shared engineering from Doubledealer, assuming he went from vehicle mode to super mode directly.

Could it be the "sleep mode" Prime? Granted, it would be odd to call it an "alternate universe" Prime, but I guess stranger things have happened.

Man, it would suck but its bad enough to sound plausible.

My prediction is that Sleepy Prime was supposed to be the SDCC exclusive that now has to be released online for obvious reasons. Kind of like how the Reflector 3-pack was supposed to be the Hascon 2019 exclusive, but ended up being offered as a regular online exclusive because of Hascon's cancellation.

I hope so but I'm honestly expecting the worst out of this 'alt universe' Optimus.

I think I actually prefer the CW version to the ER version, based on the pictures. The ER one is more versatile as an individual figure, but the CW version has the combiner gimmick going for it. Plus, I never really liked Sky Lynx' design....

That one is said to be part of Selects rather than Earthrise proper.

Though, if it were the case, there is one semi-obscure precedent for a dead G1 Prime being an alternate universe variant:
