The problem with the Skystriker (for me) is that, even though it's a lovely toy in itself, it has little practical 'play' value and, for all the space it takes up, it still only holds two figures.
Gimme a Dragonfly instead. That baby can land anywhere!

I'm happy they re-made the Sky Hawk... I never had one as a kid.

I loved the Skystriker as a kid especially after "Top Gun". But it still had a few flaws.
1) Seat became loose after a couple "ejections".
2) Seat pegs were too small to hold many of the figures.
3) Had to modify landing gear mechanism, so I could have full
wing spread in flight mode.
Better off with a new jet. Maybe hire some of the PTE designers to work on it. After the A-10 and F/A-18, I'd be interested in seeing PTE's versions of F-22, F-16, F-35 or F-15. I'd probably even buy some older aircraft like A-4, A-6, OV-10 or AV-8B

this might be the wrong thread to ask this in, but is anybody else NOT collecting the vehicles? My shelf space & budget reasons, my 25th is figures-only...
What I love about the figs is that they are so well articulated and detailed- the vehicles (even the new molds) don't update the originals in the same way as the figs.

This is the Jet they will most likly re-produce. It's small, cheap, and they should still have the molds... It's close to a F-22
