I got bored so hear are four pictures of the new Ace and the old Ace next to the Sky Striker. As you can tell from the photos the new Ace will fit in the Sky Striker eve with the back peg on his set. He would fit a lot better if it wasn't for the peg on his set. Over all I do like this figure, I just wish he would have some of the detail of the original. I like how the original has a knife and a gun on his upper torso. The new version lacks such details. The new looks works for him, it has touches of the original. Also the bonus detail of the eagle on his arm is a very nice touch.

I wish they'd make Ace look like he does in the cartoon, so much better in the white and blue jumpsuit, plus he has a cool helmet.

(Please Hasbro)

Awesome pics man! Skystriker is amazing :)

Looking at the comparison pics, it's obvious that the new version of Ace was really an after-thought once Hasbro made Wild Bill.

The new Ace design looks nothing like the old one-- other than the colors.

But, he's not a horrible looking figure, by any means. I'm still glad they made him. (Even if we'll never see a 25th Skystriker...)

After opening the Ace and Wild Weasel two-pack, I went looking to see if the former would fit into a Skystriker. Now that I see he will, I'm torn between buying one and waiting to see what kind of fighter jets may be released as part of the 25th Anniversary, or maybe even from the movie line. Now I'm really anxious for SDCC, in the hopes that we'll see something.

yeah, i definately cut Ace a little slack because he is essentially a repaint of Wild Bill, and as such they did an admirable job of pulling off a decent look towards the original. (i'm in the camp that would have preferred a more standard helmet/flight mask too)

and he'd look a lot less tweaked if they hadn't forgotten his upper eyelashes :)

I gave my Ace the VVV Ace helmet, and problem solved. Still looks deranged though, with those eyes of his.

I pray for an F-15.

I tried to give mine a holster with a.45 (Chuckless) but his body is too bulky and the harness/vest,hell no.

My dad tought it was an astronaut. This was hasbro worst designed figure for the 25th ann. collection

It took me forever to find an Ace that had paint apps and a head that I could live with. When I finally thought that I had the "Holy Grail" of the best looking Ace, he turned out to be a traitor. Ace was packaged with a Cobra stand which had his name on it. I didn't need descension in the ranks, so I left him there with his new buddy in arms Wild Weasel. (Before you guys scream variant and how much money I could have sold it for, I call it a factory error and I collect for fun.)

Today I found an Ace to my liking at a K-Mart. They are a bit pricey at $11.49 for a comic 2-pack, but I plan on returning the original one I bought a few months back that I was never happy with. I got it at Walmart for $9.88, so that's the one that is being returned to K-Mart instead.

This Ace had the new stands with the 2 foot pegs. I origianlly thought they were a good idea, but after trying to pose a figure on both of them you are somewhat limited. I like the first stands better with only 1 foot peg. I think I'm going to post a thread about it to see how everyone else feels about them.
