    Sky-High & Sky Sled Discussion Thread

    I don't know if ToyGuru ever mentioned if he is possible to be made, but I have always wanted a figure of the Windraider Pilot from the classic 80's poster. I made a quick mockup figure for him, and a bio to give the character some life. So post here to show your support for him.


    Sky-High

    This "Unknown Pilot" made his first appearance during the Great Unrest. During the battle, Tri-Klops was ready to attack Man-at-arms from behind, but Sky-High came swooping in on his Air Stryker vehicle and took out Tri-Klops with a blaster shot to save the day. To show his gratitude for saving his life, Duncan upgraded the heroic pilots Air Stryker vehicle with new weapons and it is now known as The Wind Raider. Duncan also gave the unknown pilot the nickname Sky-High, for his ability to manuever through the skies at incredible speeds and heights with ease. He now serves the Eternian Royal guard as the greatest pilot in Eternias history, and waits to aid the Masters of the Universe at any time he is needed.

    Pass.

    I can think of over 100 other figures I would want before this guy.

    It's not that I hate this character but if I had the choice between this pilot and say someone important like Ram Man...I'll take Ram Man.

    No need to waste a figure slot on a character like this.

    Great potential for 2-packs here. One of pilots - Wind Raider and Talon Fighter. The other for drivers - Attak Trak and Roton. I'd buy 'em!!

    Just as I'd be interested to buy the un-named pilots/drivers from the Monogram Roton, Attak Trak and Talon Fighter, I'd also be happy to have this guy produced.

    In fact, I don't think I'd ever heard of him before!

    Does anyone have pics of those other pilots/drivers? I wouldn't mind Mattel getting to some of these eventually, just not in the next year or two.

    Can someone post some pics of the other pilots? I'm interested in these "G.I. Joe' kind of stuff...

    I'd love one. I remember just staring at that poster, wondering who that guy was, and if he was going to be in my toybox someday.

    That guy would be a welcome "novelty" to the line ! It would be cool if he could come with the Wind Raider !

    The Monogram pilots are definitely a dream that could come true, since Toyguru said they could be produced.

    I'm not too sure about this guy, though...

    I want one. I agree that he would make a great exclusive.

    To be Honest I find him much more appealing than than Preternia Heman exclusive they have coming out for next year.

    A very cool piece. I only vaguely remember the original box art and this looks great!

    Just to be clear, I do NOT have a problem with the price. As many have said, there are plenty of us who would not have been surprised if it were more, and I think the Sky Sled is pretty perfect, so I'm happy to pay $25 for the front half of the item I want more than ANY other figure, vehicle, beast, playset or accessory in this line. I actually got to hold it briefly at SDCC and it truly is all that it should be! I'm also quite stoked about Sky High! But I've been so vocal in this thread because the posts (here, anyway) sure make it seem like pairing these two together is going to result in much lower sales, meaning we won't get the back half of the item I want more than ANY other figure, vehicle, beast, playset or accessory in this line, and then lack of fan-demand will be blamed. TRUST me, I PRAY that I am wrong and that it sells out during early-access and Scott can EASILY get the green-light for the rest of The Battle Ram!

    Is it just me or are the colors different on the Jet Sled and the Battle Ram?
