I had the Conquest and the Drangonfly as a kid and i always enjoyed them both very much plus the pilots Slipstream and Wild Bill became too of my favorite Joes because of these two jets. So naturally when the Conquest was released with the modern era line i immediately ran out and bought it and if the Dragonfly was to be released i would do just the same. Never had the Skystriker but again if it were to be released i would buy it too!

For the longest time I didn't like it. I thought it was just ridiculous w/ it's "backward" wings. I know about the real experimental jet, but still didn't care for it.
Then I got one when I bought the re-released Rattler. Now I think it's really cool. I like it now that it is much smaller to fly ( more maneuvarable w/ hands, yes I play w/ it) I actually like the yellow which offsets the grey. Landing gear is cool too.
One thing I do use it for is a vehicle for my X-Wing Pilot Luke Skywalker. It actually looks believable in that universe.

I like the Conquest, but I actually prefer the Python Patrol version. The plane just seems more CObra to me then Joe, and Cobra never really had an air superiority fighter, so it works well for that.

Being based of the x29, I always thought it was more appropriate for the Joe team since I always figured the joes would have access to the latest, most advanced tech. The yellow was lame looking though. Right now I'm working on a X-30 custom with a more realistic color scheme.

I didn't like the Conquest as a kid, so I didn't have much interest in it as an adult.
I always loved the Tomcat F-14, (top gun) If they released a new Skystriker I'd love to see a F-22 or modern equivalent.

I love the X-30. I had one as a kid, because my parents couldn't afford or find a Skystriker. It was always one of my favorites. It doesn't really play second fiddle to my skystriker now, but that plane is just dang awesome.
