Transformer of the Day for June 15, 2009

SKY LYNX

-Faction: Autobot
-Era: Generation One (1984-1992)
-Function: Lieutenant Commander
-Motto: “The best achievements are worth repeating”
-Notable Toy: Encore Edition (Takara-Tomy, 2008)

Thus he was free at last to roam the land of Godzilla. And now you know the rest of the story…
