  1. (Old) Sky Lynx G1 Description:
    “A powerful fighter. Self-centered and boastful. Fearless, daring, believes himself to be superior to many of his fellow Autobots. Shell-resistent and steel-reinforced hull can withstand enemy bombardment and extreme temperature variations. Possesses solar powered auxiliary engines. Acetylene blaster inside cockput shoots 3000 degree flames. As space shuttle, has interplanetary travel capabilities – maximum speed 30,000 mph, range 40,000,000 miles.”

    (Modern) Sky Lynx Combiner Wars Description:
    “Sky Lynx does stuff.”

  2. Descriptions actually tell you who the characters are, and sometimes it works, other times you get a Generations Skullgrin Pussy with guns all over him… makes sense… a lot of sense.

  3. What I find annoying is that TFW2005 has moved most of the club related news to the “conventions and get togethers” sub-forum, where no one reads it. If start any club related news posts in their news section, they move it to the conventions forum!

  4. Flywheels – “Believe in yourself, but only if you both agree.”
    Split personality — fights himself more often than his foes. Each half of him is jealous of the other. Often heard arguing with himself, even when unified in robot Mode. Tank has maximum speed of 75mph, range 350 miles. Jet has maximum speed of 1300mph, range 1800 miles. In robot Mode, carries a laser cannon with infra-red sensors for heat-seeking capabilities.

  5. I’ll tell you this Duron, I would just be happy with one little figure, but $80 for a deluxe repaint is an automatic rejection. I know it’s a convention exclusive and more rare then the basic toys, but for me, it doesn’t justify it. Combine that with scalpers, and you have a mess of expensive toys that I pass on it to and go after the retail version.

  6. In all honesty, with my podcast (not promoting) I’m not too into comics and such, but I’d love to have certain guest to finally do an IDW cast. I have a few comics, but it’s not much.

  7. No, I’m not bipolar, but I’ve always loved the character Flywheels.
