    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.

    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!

    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!!

    While I do like obscure characters this one does not look very appealing to me. Worse his colors work very bad with colors of the windraider imho. He looks more like a horde characters. Nice custom though.

    I'd third that! I'm not so sure a character as obscure of this should get a monthly or even quarterly slot.. but I'd much prefer a character like this over another He-Man variant.

    If they make the Wind Raider, package him with it and we'd have a winner! I'd buy that.

    I would LOVE to get all the art work pilots/drivers I'm all over it.

    I doubt they will package them with vehicles though, but it's a fun idea!

    Count me in; this mystery dude is perfect for MOTUC!!!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I'd like it if he came with the Wind Raider.

    I like the name too... I have a feeling that whatever name Mattel comes up with, if any, it won't be as good or take the place of "Sky-High."

    Although, it would be cool if he had more of a suit of armor, and it ended up being Marlena... kind of an homage to "The Rainbow Warrior."

    I'd like him if he was an exclusive or a bonus figure.

    That being said...he looks too much like Cobra Commander.

    No thanks- we have soooo many existing characters to trawl through. I don't need background cameo characters taking up a slot.
    Most-wanted MOTUC: Granita - Hunga the Harpy - Spinnerella - Melaktha - Vultak - Dylamug - Crita - Mermista Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina

    Yes, I'd like this one and those other unnamed drivers/pilots.

    No connection to the Unnamed One, I'm sure, but they're still not named as far as I know.

    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.
