"alot of fans aren't emotionally tied to getting everything redone, so having a picture of the Skystriker is in no way rubbing their nose in anything. do you honestly believe you are a victim in a scenario like this, because that is the only way you could feel that Hasbro is rubbing your nose in anything. that is such a ludicrous statement to make."
Maybe not the best choice of words, I like Hasbro and I think there is a reason/reasons behind said artwork.
Im not calling myself a victim at all, Im just a fan, not anyone other than a consumer to Hasbro. I think Hasbro wouldnt have put the skystriker on there unless they wanted to stir interest-that's all. Is it commemorative..sure, does it make any sense to ME? No, I dont understand why someone at Hasbro would put artwork of a jet that clearly is not available. Commemorative or not, it doesnt make sense to me, clearly any other vehicle that is currently being redone could have gone on that background. The point of this thread was to point out the skystriker is on the new packaging for both jets. I had yet to read anyone else stating this, hence I thought it would be an interesting thread.
For $14.95, your mom sure got her money's worth Rolando. Talk about finding someone's motivation.
I aint here to argue, Im here to have some fun and enjoy the threads.

If I was to guess a price if they released a skystriker I would say around 50-60 bucks,but what do I know.

Has anyone ever seen hasbro make an artwork of g.i.joe with something in it and it never came out? I mean all my life starting as a child playing with toys to an adult collecting moc/misb rah and 25th line have personally never seen hasbro make an artwork with figures or vehicles in it that has never been released. I remember seeing something on artwork and it always has been released. Not trying to imply something or anything but expressing my opinion and personal experiences.

The Skystriker isn't as big as people think, and I don't think they'll add shooting missiles or anything like that (so far they haven't with other vehicles, thank goodness!). I say $40-50 range is quite possible. We might not get a figure with it but frankly who cares?
Please check out http://hmcsgreatadventure.com/ - it's a mix of sci-fi, humour and the friggin' Royal Canadian Navy, eh!

Im almost certain that the skystriker being released or not has absolutely NOTHING to do with its image being in the artwork. Just look at all the artwork and images that appeared on the back of the 5 packs... is hasbro going to have comic 2 packs for all the comics they showed on it? the flagg and terrordrome are also on that box, as well as the space shuttle... by ur logic hasbro IS going to release those. No, not at all, its just a picture, homage, nothing more. If these items get released it is completely unrelated. Besides, hasbro hired an artist to draw this backdrop. most artists when commisioned to do this kind of work have very little to go off from the people hiring them, and show what they know about the line skystriker being one of the more famous and recognized joe planes, it makes sense that itd be drawn

I feel obligated to chime in on a few issues.
I thought I read somewhere that it was stated that since the F-14 was retired, theywould not be making a Skystriker.
By looking at those boxes, they backround reminded me of the old four connecting puzzles from 1985?
I had a Skystriker body not too long ago, and I do not think professional toy engineers couldn't retrocast it.
Despite it being about 50% underscaled, I think it would still allow 2 seated figures.
I agree shooting missiles suck mostly because the missiles were too damn long.
I also agree that some of the mechanics could be do without. I always hated how the wheels were down in extended/flight mode, yet were up in afterburner/parked mode.

I think Hasbro knows this as much as we do how highly souht after and iconic the Skystriker is. That said, I have no reason to believe that Hasbro would not mkae one.
My prediction, maybe summer of '09 or depending on how well the movie line do as well!?
