It would be hard to make a case against the remake of the skystriker. The best part about it would be that the originals on ebay would come down to a more affordable price like the rattlers did. I myself would invest heavily in the remake of the classic and the aforementioned 25th improved skystriker.

Do 25th joes fit in the vintage Skystriker? If so I may just invest in one in the future.

I have 8 skystrikers. I wouldn't buy a new one unless it came close to the size and coolness of the original.

There were some iconic Joe items that didn't get a 25th/Modern representation, and the Sky Striker is at the top of the list along with the Dragonfly.
All things considered, though, the 25th/Modern series was a great run. I still miss it. I see no reason why Hasbro couldn't have continued it during the ROC onslaught even if it were online only.

I would think the Skystryker looks too much like the Boeing F-22 Raptor and therefore Hasbro might have to pay royalties to Boeing to produce the Skystryker. This wasn't the case in the early 1980's but it might be the case now.
