Sky-Byte – Transformers: Generations

Sky-Byte was a bit of a letdown for me. I was expecting a lot since we have had so many great Generations figures in the Voyager Scale.  Along comes this very ugly guy, with poor articulation, and a spinning/firing arm gimmick that is pretty poor.

Can shark mode be better?

Not really. The shark looks good, but it is arched, so playability is limited due to his not being able to swim in a straight line. The spinning arm becomes the tail, and detracts from the overall look too.  He is really hard to transform as well, so kids will have a really tough time with this one.  There are some really weird parts that need to fit together.

I am rather unimpressed with this guy.  I had a lot of hope, from the other figures in the wave, as well as seeing some other people’s pictures.   Don’t waste your energy hunting for this guy.  If you are a fan of Predacons, he may be a good one for you to pick up, but I don’t think he is a must-have for any collection.
