The Sky Hawk is awesome and easily almost worth the 15ish bucks itself. Could have used a better cockpit design as I haven't found anyone that "fits" in it quite right yet. Only other thing I noticed is the VTOL jets on mine don't seem to want to be moved into a vertical position. Is this normal or are the jets just really tight?
Lift Ticket was a nice effort in that he has new sculpt peices but as a whole he is a failure and a 3/10 is generous. Hopefully if they actually ever release a Tomahawk it will come with a good Lift Ticket.

I have to say, I really love this set. I was originally more looking forward to the Sting Raider, just because I love boats and boats are cool. Plus, I never really was crazy about this mold. I have the Sky Hawk still, and it just feels flimsy to me. (Plus, it really IS flimsy - the various panels from the tail are forever falling off....)
But the improvements to the sculpt in this version really turn a mediocre toy into a fantasic one. Making the landing struts thicker and more imposing, plus putting clear plastic into the canopy, really make this feel bulkier and more sturdy. The whole thing feels more SOLID now, and aggressive. Plus, I LIKE Lift Ticket. The colors are great, I am more than happy to have both another pilot and another key original character... I think it's a winner of a set.

Ooooh! A knife! If the Sky Hawk and the Firebat go down at the same time and both pilots live it's going to be quick a fight. More knives... great.

The one thing I dislike about the Skyhawk is the control stick. I haven't found anyone to sit in there and be able to hold the control stick.
