Toy News: New photos of "Unite Warriors" Lynx Master

Takara Tomy Mall has updated their listing for Lynx Master, the "Unite Warriors" release of "Combiner Wars" Sky Lynx and several Autobots including Ratchet and Hound. These photos show off the decos on the figures and in some cases, more dynamic poses. I'm loving the way these guys look, especially Hound and Ratchet who have really gorgeous G1 based decos!
