I'm still not sold on Sky-Byte. It's a good looking toy, don't get me wrong, but I have the original. And this just doesn't change enough of his look to justify getting another one.

But Roadbuster...I'm all over that like a...thing...that's all over some other thing. Except for his dorky clown shoes - but I'll hardly see his feet once he's on my shelf.

HasTak actually remembered there are continuities other than G1/Beast Wars! Hooray!

So, uh, Generations Unicron Trilogy figures (besides Armada Starscream) = when?

Depends on your definition of "good".

Until he gets rid of that goddamn lava lamp cannon (and possibly gets a better alt mode than what is basically his torso with said lava lamp cannon sticking out the front) the answer will be "never".

Hmmm. Do I want these?

I already have a Sky Byte and Roadbuster for my Classics shelf (two Roadbusters if you count the FOC version). These look better since they aren't repaints, but I have to allot my funds properly, like for that Scorponok that's coming.


Time for Repaint Theater

Who could these two be retooled into?

Besides Cybershark, of course.

Sharkticon? Seacon colours? Heck, Energon Sharkticon had a nice paint scheme.

For RID, there was also Side Burn and Scourge, though both are exclusives.

And the FOC Ruination was a sort of sideways homage to the RID team.

I would like to see a Generations version of Armada Megatron. The original had lousy articulation.

I'll wait for them to pop up in regular retail. Then again, it seems that Whirl, Rhinox, and Doubledealer haven't even shown up here yet... :-(

This. Oh, this so much.

Still waiting on Demolishor, Cyclonus, and Red Alert (though I'll happily take a redeco of the upcoming BotCon 2014 "Pirates vs. Knights" Cannonball as Red Alert via Club Store/TFSS). Would it be too much to ask for Armada Optimus Prime and Megatron, too?

Here in SE Pennsylvania, Whirl and Doubledealer showed up at TRU about a week ago.

I have the original TM Cybershark, and honestly, like those colours better than Sky Byte's but will probably pick him up. (and now that I think about it, hopefully he'll be on the Lost Light now, taking up a corner of Swerve's)

Happy to get a Roadbuster. He's decent enough for such a minor character.

Not sure on repaint potential. Skybyte could be okay in the green, or Sharkticon/Seacon colours (both of which are pretty similar so it could be a double homage, lets call him Gnawbreaker) or the Energon Sharkticon colours, but they're maybe a bit too similar to this one. Could also go with Pretender Splashdown, whose shell had a similar shark-head chest going on. Agaim this could be close enough to a Cybershark colour palette that one might work fine for the other, if you so choose. Roadbuster could end up being any of a dozen big burly bots, but I don't see any one particular character.

If only Sky Byte was available separately :(

Yeesh, those prices. With BotCon on the horizon, I'm in no situation to be preordering stuff at those prices.

Roadbuster is EPIC.

Posted by dende5416 on April 17th, 2014 @ 6:43pm CDT
UH... is it just me, or is Skybyte only a slightly retooled Transmetal 2 Cybershark? I see practically no differences between the old mold and new mold, at all. Does anyone else see that or am I just nuts?

Hopefully they will show up on Hasbrotoyshop.com soon at regular price. That BBTS price just seems to high with shipping on top of it. :CON:
