    Parts re-use in this line?!?! When did this start?

    By the way, Scott said these sold very well.

    If they can't produce a full one, and they managed to sneak out the front, it should only be the back to keep cost down - don't need another front - maybe sneak an accessory or figure in with it again.

    I haven't been on the forum much lately. I finally got around to opening my Sky High and Jet Sled. Awesome figures.

    My Sky High has two left feet. I don't mean he's a bad dancer. I mean he really has two left feet. Has anyone else had this problem, or is this an isolated incident?

    My Sky High arrived the other week, it inspired this little comic. It's silly, but fun, enjoy!

    Hey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things aren’t absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I don’t collect toys to be miserable. So I’d rather think about the things that do excite me

    Did anyone else have the two small exhausts on the back glued on wonky? I managed to pry mine off and stick back on straight. There is a groove for it to slide on so the people in the factory must have really just jammed them on to et them to go wonky.

    My two packs arrived last week and I must say I'm superstoked with the sleds. These are vehicles I didn't get to have as a kid but always wanted to, because they were everywhere in the media (especially the Filmation cartoon). Their MotUC version is really big (in fact, I'd say it wouldn't have hurt had they made them some 10% smaller so that the figures would ride more "comfortably"), but at the same time they're relatively light since they're hollow inside (if you hold it with a male figure riding, it's quite noticeable the figure is heavier and denser). The best part about them is that, just like with the Wind Raider, Mattel surprisingly did not cut any corner in terms of detailing and paint apps. So this vehicle goes right up there with the Wind Raider to the top of Best Made MotUC items in my view. The worst part is the lack of a flying stand, though I understand they didn't include it to keep the price point for the pack at $50.

    The black paint covering the yellow plastic of the back clip that holds the wings of one of my Sky Highs peeled off immediately (should I call this "reverse blastic"?). Fortunately, it isn't quite noticeable when the yellow wings are on (since this piece is molded in the same yellow plastic as the wings). But I'm bummed that Mattel Design dropped the ball again and decided to make this clip piece unremovable (it's fixed to the armor with what seems to be a kind of metallic rivet) when there's no reason whatsoever why it should be so and every reason for it to be removable (since this projecting piece is a cumbersome and useless eyesore when the wings aren't on, even without the paint peeling defect).

    The paint app on the front of the armor of each of my Sky Highs were applied differently (on one of them the red paint covers the whole "head and wings" relief detail including the relief sides, while the other only covers the top part of the relief motif, and this difference creates a subtle but noticeably different visual effect). The helmet of one of them also didn't get the gloss finish. These and a few other tell-tale details (such as the notably different width of the sellotape used on the inner cardboard) tell me that each pack I got seems to belong to a different production batch (maybe from different working days or shifts, or from parallel paint and assembly lines). In a way, these little differences make each of my Sky High figures somewhat unique despite looking overall the same.

    I hope to be able to grab at least one more pack when Matty makes the remaining stock available again, and would love it if Mattel released the Filmation blue-paint variant (since the one in this pack is actually molded in a teal or darkish green color) and the "evil" fanged variant (same green color we've got but with a new "snake" head sculpt).

    I hope that's a good sign for getting the other half eventually. Then again, they said the same thing about the Green Goddess selling well until, suddenly, she didn't, so I take anything like that with a grain of salt the size of Granamyr (the dragon, not the toy).

    I'm still waiting on mine; I'm guessing Big Bad is having problems getting them in.

    not sure if this is the right place to post this here but whats a reasonable price to pay for the sled on its own ? I've seen a guy asking for €40 locally for it and thats like $60 so not sure if its worth that. I want to get one as I hope the rest of the battle ram will make an appearance. and I love those sleds .

    I would like to buy the Sky High with Jet Sled but I don't think it's worth it by itself. You have to take into account it's $60 price and then you have to consider Matty's shipping costs, that may be too much to stomach for something that was $50 last year.

    Could someone PLEASE do the inventory check at Mattycollector to see how many Sky High's are actually available. I would like to wait until the SDCC items are up on Matty to order it. It would help me and it would help a lot of others save on shipping. If there's still a lot left, it might even show up again on Black Friday/Cyber Monday this year.

    Please help me out. I'm not sure how to check stock on Matty. Thanks.

    (If this post doesn't belong in this thread, just let me know)

    I'm not sure how to do that, and if no one sees your post here soon, I'd try scanning the threads about people making day-of purchases, as I feel like people who do that post there, and then pm them directly.

    Have anyone found some cool stand for the Sky Sled? (In place of the scarcely available Wind Rider's one)

    I finally hung my WR from the ceiling, freeing up the stand.
    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

    You should check out Flightpose stands if you haven't seen them. I don't own one, but I remember looking at them last year when I was thinking of
    picking up the Jet sled as an alternative to buying another Windraider. They're less than $10 on their website, plus shipping, but it's for a pre-order.
    Who knows when there will be more.

    I imagine they'd be a lot more finnicky and difficult to pose than the WR stand, but they look nice. Lots of people here use them...

    Edit: According to their Facebook, the stands are now in stock!

    How cynical of matty. Following the battle ram reveal, the sky sled has been marked as 'almost gone'. Hurry up guys! Lol.
