I am an 80's kid and I picked the YF-23 over the Tomcat.
My love for the Tomcat will never cease however, it has been retired.
The YF-23 is a very sleek tight looking aircraft. it also heavily influenced the design of the YF-21 portrayed in the movie Macross Plus, Guld Goa Bowman's aircraft.

I'll take the VF-22S Sturmvogel II.... er
The Skystriker is the obvious choice because of nostalgia but I think a new mold would be a good idea as the old one although good in it's own right could be improved with current toy technology. Personally I love the design of the Black Widow II and would love to see a Joe one of those as well.

F 14 all the way-- I grew up with this toy and mine was, unfortunately, destroyed since I was only 6-7 years old when I had this plane!!
F 14 Tomcat is still one of my favorite plane of all time!!
Also I wanted to point out the comparision of star wars: How many x wings had they created out of new mold and reissued mold??
Of course Skystriker is the "X wing" for GI Joe.. Why couldnt they do the same for skystriker since they already did couple of X wings??

We have an X-30 and Rattler. Rattler and the Skystriker are both iconic Joe/Cobra aircraft. The logic for going new applied to the Rattler would have resulted in an F-35 or an F-16 style aircraft being released. (that would be cool). A Harrier type aircraft would be cool too.
I would rather see an F-22 Raptor instead of the F-23. Seeing a Skystriker on the shelfs would really round out the 25th/modern vehicle lines. lets not for get the modern line is based on the original line. Also it would be a cheaper way to get a new one than ebay.
I would love to see Skystriker and Night Raven released (not retooled or reinvented)

I have a Skystriker F-14 in great condition so at this point the YF-23 would be cool. If it were the F-14 I get a squadron of em

Gotta go with the original. after all, if the Rattler is still a warthog, then the Skystriker has gotta be a tomcat.

Well, I am old school so I would have to error on the side of the F-14. Modernists would rather have the F-23.
However, if I had it my way, I would like the Stealth x-19 to be made again.
That plain along with the Cobra Night Raven are my favorite planes of all time!
