Sky Lynx Just Flew In


G1 Transformers continue to rock my face off.

Well, here he is. Sky Lynx! I have to say, this is pretty fricken awesome. A coin collector on eBay had like 3 Transfomers he was unloading. When I got it, it was wrapped in a plastic protective sheet, re-enforced with bubble wrap. The thing looked like brand new. Hell, it looks like it's in better condition that stuff I've seen out at Wal-Mart lately. In his auction, he listed "electronics not tested" which is just a sly way of saying, "this shit don't work." Well, I put batteries in it and it worked like a charm. Everything was is in tact, no rips or cuts on the box, and it's complete.

Pretty damn good coming from a guy who sells nickels.

So, the story with Sky Lynx is that, well, he's the one I never had. I wanted him and I begged and begged, and he never showed. Not even at a rummage sale. He goes in the same group as Trypticon, Transformers that were just a little too expensive. GOD I wanted him.

Well, 24 years later, I got to open him up and it felt pretty damn good.

Stay tuned for my next Transformer!
