I've already got a dead mint original Skystriker, so I'd be more interested in a new version.
Please check out http://hmcsgreatadventure.com/ - it's a mix of sci-fi, humour and the friggin' Royal Canadian Navy, eh!
Also looking to sell/trade Joes... Need Lego Futuron Monorail, Land Adventure, etc... http://www.hisstank.com/forum/g-i-jo...-t-thread.html

YF-23 gets my vote, though I'd get whatever fighter they'd make.

That said the F-14 is terribly dated tech wise, and would get eaten up by just about any modern frontline fighter aircraft. Still, if i had to chose between the old and the new, i have to go old, on simple design aesthetics alone, and no fanboying for the Skystriker involved.

GI Joe is supposed to be this most elite unit in Americas military. Elite units don't use out of date equipment. They use new, state of the art stuff. No one in the US military still uses the F-14. Why would the most elite of the elite still use it?
I voted for the XF-23. Call it the Skystriker Mk-II. Bring on the future.
The F-14 is badass. But let it go. Would I buy a F-14/Skystriker? Yes. A couple probably. But give us something new.
And retire the MOBAT too. Give us an Abrams M1 main battle tank.

I dont care what people say about the F-14 it looks cool. And to say that is outdated / inappropriate for a rerelease in 2009 is crazy. Obviously GIJOE / general hawk likes the design and makes sure that the boys in R.D update the technologies to bring the f-14 in line with todays state of the art aircraft.
