Curious which version of the Sky Striker that is.

The re-release they did a few years back was more grey but had black tailfins.

Also, not sure how well the 25th Anniversary figs fit in the old two-seater configuration, unless the person you bought it off of made some modifications.

That's the OG.

The figs were not happy about going in. I trimmed the pins off the seats for room and used Blue Tack to hold them in for swooshing.

Can her arm articulation do a saluting pose?

It's passable. This is the limit of the elbow+shoulder (shoulder can rotate more, but won't go further up). I also don't have the correct hand on.

Personal pet peeve:  I really hate that the stickers were NOT mirror-imaged on the Sky Striker.

Drove me batty, especially after getting spoiled with the Macross and Mospeada birds.

Shameful Moggy plug, I did do a few custom touches to the Sky Striker back in the day:  https://www.hisstank.com/forum/g-i-joe-customs-finished-projects/142652-minor-custom-touches-skystriker-ace.html

Thanks for the pic. :good:

Wonder if the elbow articulation can pose similar to this:

Been waffling back and forth whether to add Misa next to my TV SDF-1 display.

@MogThat panel lined Skystriker looks great! Need to do it on the first OG version tho.  I’m not a fan of the one seater reissue.

Never got the original version as a kid.

But I do prefer the black tailfins on the re-release.  And I do like the extra details in the updated cockpit.

I understand the desire for two-seater, but it’s that whole “give and take” thing with the bird being slightly underscaled.

If I was bonkers enough to get a second Sky Striker, they did have black and yellow stripe stickers.  Wouldn’t require much to make a Sky Striker look like a “certain sempai’s” ride. :spiteful:

This is easily the best Cap Bandai have ever made.  Loki’s face is derpy and terrible and so is his ankle articulation.  Supaidamsn is charming as hell.  Leopardon is actually really irritating to pose.  HUGE thank you to Golden Arms for hooking me up with two Storm/Thunderbird two packs.  Still gotta get the decals going on the Slash Zaku Phantom.

VF-11 showed up. Posed and ready for @valhary's boosters. Man, that was pretty tricky getting that sucker posed up like that. I think the shorter stanchion  will clear the booster on the bottom........I hope.

Wait there was a Radioactive Man Arcade Game?!? I played the $#!T out of The Simpsons arcade game and even beat it once when I was 11 (with the help of my brother and a roll of quarters) but I have never seen a Radioactive Man game. Tell me more!

I'm assuming that's @valhary's. Those are his pics.

Hot Wheels.

Ended up using the Target $25 off toys offer a ridiculous amount of times.  Also returned my spare Marvel Legends Storm and Thunderbird sets and kept 4 sets with best paint apps.  I didn’t realize this before but if you return some of the items that used the offer, the remaining items still get a discount.
