Sirt is in Asia right now, so I don't think he'll be on the tank but i'll give him a rattle on facebook and get you pics. I think the only difference s it has the different logo on the tail and a different parachute. Not aware of any other difference(minus paperwork and box)

The rattler though uses a more clear red for the sigils and it is standard sigils instead of cobra air force sigils http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7245/7097498917_d833c82347.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/71498619@N07/7097498917/)

I'm actually about to sell mine if anyone is interested.

Here's a crappy cell phone picture.

The only differences are the Takara logos and on the passenger side the GI Joe logo is white instead of black.

Yeah it's different too. It has a giant Takara logo on it opposed to the domestic emblem. I have the box too. The paperwork and pamphlets included are amazing.

The paperwork is badass. I love the filecards on the boxes too!

Wow, that's nice! Very clean and bright. Excellent piece.

I owe you money also. :D I'll take care of that soon.

Sounds good. I actually bought the Skystriker in a sealed box last year from Sirt8669. The box was beat to hell so he cracked it open and we built it. So it's super white as it's only been opened less than a year.

Thanks everyone, wondering if the Cobrastickers.com logos for the tailfins are big enough. Anyone try them? They're listed under their factions section for Action Force.

I ordered the stickers to see, I am also curious about this. I have had many Takara Skystrikers but the most recent one was in dire need of restoration so the stickers had to be removed. I will post pics once its finished in a few days or so.

Sorry man, those were your stickers of course. I suggest the original repros, but your skystriker looks awesome now. I just have to get Around to taking my after photos before I give it back to you.

What original repros are you talking about? Those were the repros lol I think you mean the originals. That is the only way to go. I was hoping those other stickers would work but guess they didn't so now we know not to waste the $25 on them, over priced if you ask me.

25$ for Original Skystriker labels $6 for faction Symbols of Takara symbols. It would be nice if Cobra Stickers made a specific Takara Skystriker set as the faction symbols are too small.
