Sky Reign Early Unused Name Revealed In Combiner Wars Trailbreaker Extended Bio

Albert Ng made a lucky find at a store in Malaysia recently, and thanks to that we have a little bit of info from the second wave of 2016 Combiner Wars Deluxes, featuring the second batch of Autobot car retools. But as he called attention to in a photo on his Instagram account, there's a slight discrepancy. Trailbreaker's team affiliation is not listed as "Sky Reign" like the other three toys are. Keep reading to see more!

It seems that Trailbreaker alone serves the Lynx King. Clearly this still refers to a combination made with Sky Lynx at the core. But it's curious if this was a planned name that was scrapped relatively late in the process, or even if it was just a placeholder never intended to be officially connected with this combiner to facilitate writing the info for the extended bios. Plus with the revelation of a Lio Kaiser-based box set, it does beg the question if the name was reworked when the Victory homage set was put in motion to avoid the names of the similarly structured combiners resembling each other too much. Sadly we'll probably never know exactly the real story behind Lynx King, but it's fun to see once in a while little signs of the lengthy development process for Transformers slip out - especially when it comes to elements not specifically relating to the design of the toys!

Thanks again to Albert Ng for the photo.
