Sky-High With Two Supreme Additions To The Collection!

Been a while since I've talked about Transformers here. Yeah, sure, that little Ultimate Toy Battle I did had some Transformers in them, but I didn't TALK about them, did I? They talked about themselves! Oh wait. I also talked about that new cartoon series. Oh well...

(Yes, that's the cue for all ye' non-Transformer fans to roll your eyes and go to another blog. Click on an ad before yer go, ok? I need the money to buy new Transformers, hehe)

Anyway, there's been a whole new wave of interest in Transformers ever since some movie came out last year and created a whole new wave of newbie Transformers fans who have been buying every single Transformers movie toy in sight and not leaving any for us long-suffering fans who are now deprived of their moment of happiness when they find that ONE RARE TRANSFORMER TOY in Toys R' Us, because all the Transformer toys in Toys R' Us are usually gone by the time we get there (the good ones, at least).

Sigh...

Anyway, if there's one thing that these new Transformers fans won't be able to appreciate, is the blocky shapes and sculpts of the Yer Old G1 Transformers that have almost zero articulation and do nothing but stand straight and transform into cars.

Takara (Or rather,, what's left of it after Tomy merged with it) has been comign up with NEW Old G1 toys in their Encore series, and after the usual Optimus/Megatron/Starscream ones that came out in the first wave, and then the Ironhide and Ratchett toys recently, they're moving on to bigger stuff. Bigger stuff like this dude here, who is the most AWESOME TRANSFORMER EVER MADE!

Presenting.... SKY LYNX!!!



Ok, maybe he doens't look so awesome in this picture (he looks like a chicken with teeth); but take a look at the OTHER half of this AWESOME toy!:

Oh dear. I don't remember Sky Lynx being THIS weird looking. Oh wait, there's more. First his alternate mode...



......

A shuttle with a box underneath it. Somehow, this Sky Lynx toy isn't looking as hot as I used to think it was.

Oh, but wait. there's this LAST pictures that makes it all worthwhile...



AWRIGHT!!! Now THAT'S what I'm talking about. Woohoo, Sky Lynx! Now at least ONE of my Transformers will have a British accent.

Er... never mind.

Oh, and since we're on the suject of BIG Transformers, here's the OTHER one I'm looking forward to...

Presenting... OMEGA SUPREME!!!!



Transforms from Giant Robot to er... some rollercoaster battle station thingy. Don't ask. Just buy.

No, on second thought, DON'T buy. Or else there'd be no more left for me...
