It's the only missin' pilot... we need him!
Releasing this figure would help the sales of the Wind Raider vehicle orders of magnitude more than that awfully silly idea Mattel Design had with the "parking spot" inside Castle Grayskull that only helps to ruin the playset.

Traveling exclusive would be ideal.
Still supportin...We need this cat right away.
That's great news! Con exclusive or being offered outside the sub would be perfect for this guy, because I think he's a bit too obscure to take up a regular slot.
And according to the Mattel list of characters that can be included on the Castle Grayskull box-art, he even has an official name now: SKY HIGH!
Any mods want to change the thread title to reflect this new reality?
I don't think I've chimed in on this thread before (I've somehow missed this one and Goat Man's!)... but yes. Indeed. I want this pilot. Even though he doesn't actually match the Wind Raider very much in theme or colors, I still would like to have this guy in my collection as a stand-alone-from-the-vehicle character on my shelf
I've never been really fussed about this guy, but now were getting the FFM I would like him just to complete the set.
MOTUC NA Most Wanted: Darius, Kayo, Vizar, Hoove, Lizorr

Not that I don't want the wind raider pilot (wasn't he called Sky High btw?) nor want to sound unpleasant to other fans, but I think that there are many important characters to get to in MOTUC right now.
Some of the core characters of the Great Rebellion, the Snake Men, the Horde or the Galactic Guardians are still missing (see wish list). Plus 3 of the FFM are planned for release this year while none of the 3 Rock People has already made it to MOTUC.
While I'm open to the idea of expanding the line to some extent, I must admit that I don't want anymore FFM until the other factions look more "complete" to me...
20 Most needed characters before MOTUC ends...
Heroic: Lizard Man / King Miro / Hawke / Dakon
POP: Angella / King Micah / General Sunder/ Twiggets 3 pack
Horde: Imp / Vultak / Hunga
SnakeMen: Tung Lashor / Sssqueeze
Rock People: Granita
NA: Darius / Sebrian
SkyHigh is just under Goatman on m wishlist of non-toy characters. As the 4th random pilot character created in the vintage era, he deserves to be immortalized and legitimized as part of the fighting foe men alongside the Monogram pilots.
And I completely agree that if Mattel wants to create any interest in the Wind Raider, they would be better served releasing this guy than trying to show-horn the nearly Universally panned and reviled Castle Grayskull port. I had no interest in the Attak Trak being released in this line, but now that we have Sherrilyn coming out, I'm more than willing to get one to add to my "FFM" collection.
My MOTU Classics Wishlist:
Filmation - LIZARD MAN, Kittrina, Vultak, Zilora, Ileena, Masque
Space Mutants - CRITA, Staghorn, Quakke, Butthead, Lizzor, Hoove
MYP - VEENA, Evilseed, Prahvus
Concept - RED BEAST, 4H alien 'Zodaq', Tony Guerrero Prototype
Now regarding his accessories, I would be cool to see him come with an Anchor type Weapon, as well as maybe a shield created from the Head thing you use to crank up the Anchor, similar to the way they created the weapons for the FFM.

Definitely want this guy.
Yep, I want him.
I want him as a regular release figure, I don't want to chase him like a con exclusive like I'm gonna have to do with strobo.
Love obscure and new characters. I support this character. Could be the leader of the Eternos Sky Guard.
I would really like to see Sky High made at some point, as he is now the only remaining unmade vehicle pilot!
...an since Matty wants to move the wind raiders.. making this figure seems like a win/win situation for both fans and Mattel!

I like to see more FFM!!!
Wish List: Eldor, Skeleton Warriors, King Argho, Horde Wraiths, Kobolds, Prahvus, Lord Masque, Rock Monster, Gen. Tartaran, Evil Seed, Carnivorous Plant, Lizard-Man, Hawke, Crimson Fury, Melaktha, Spinwit, Ra-Jarr, Kelclar, King Miro, Dare, Missile-Toe, Sh'gora, Vizar, Harpy, ABC Giants, Lodar, Dragoon, Darius, Negator, Masks of Power Demons, Slob-Boar, Bubblor, Three-Beast, Nocturna
I support the Wind Raider Pilot.
Hopefully he comes with some kind of interchangeable Wind Raider chest logo so I can give it to the Talon Fighter Pilot.
Most definately. When I saw the Fighting Foe Men lineup, I KNEW that Skyhigh had to be slated in the main line. I mean he is the most easily identified one. How could they not make him?
I could be wrong but if I was, or if Matty wasnt already planning him, I'd be the most upset of the entire line.
Had they not made FFM, I'd be fine. But it has to be a monthly figure or already fit in somewhere (SDCC or something)
and personally what's great is that in my display the Fighting Foe Men are on the top shelf, with the Windraider above them resting on the Mo Larr box. So putting Sky High in there would be serendipity
Sky-High is the only pilot that actually has a vehicle and that makes him the most likely to be sold separately and be successful. I bet he was already made and they are just hanging on to him. He might end up being a sub exclusive or traveling convention figure in 2014.
After getting the FFM, I would love to see this guy added to the ranks, although "Sky-High" is a Transformer name throughout the ages, so I am not too bothered if that does not get used.
