Gyre Viper launches onslaught of Skystriker Images!

Without a doubt one of the most hotly anticipated releases in recent memory is the upcoming Skystriker.  And, as we should come to expect, Gyre-Viper got his hands on one and has posted a plethora of images over on

Being the kind of guy he is, he’s also let me mirror them here on GeneralsJoes.  And let me just say…  ROCK.

Yeah, this thing looks impressive.  It’s got the size and the scale of the original, but with a healthy dose of retooled parts.  That cockpit looks freaking awesome with all of the updated controls, and I love the fact that we’re getting the black tailfins like the Sunbow model.

And maybe I’m in the minority, but I’m in love with that Ace, too!  I’m a big fan of the Skydive tooling, and with that vest and awesome helmet?  Great looking figure.  This will be a set to get your hands on.  Check out the JoeDeclassified thread here, and the images hosted below.

Sideshow Collectibles Desert Sniper up for pre-order

Somehow this floated under the radar…at least I haven’t seen anyone mention it (with the exception of Mysterious Stranger, who tossed me a reminder).  The latest Sideshow Collectible 12″ figure, the Desert Sniper is now up for pre-order.
