Sky High.....Sky High.....little does he realize his "sky sled" is a futuristic version of the Coin Operated Rocking Horse.....it doesn't fly on it's own, its just that he's so heavily "medicated", he believes he can fly..Posted Image..just like R Kelly...but I do need a sky sled in my life....I wonder how much he'll cost.....

I just may skip this. I don't like the idea of buying two or more of these and being stuck with multiple Sky High figures. Extremely poor planning Mattel. :(

And I look at it like this... they are giving us half of a Battle Ram when they should have just gave us the whole thing... ouch, my face is starting to hurt from all the slapping from these guys.

Yeah, this rates highly as one of Mattel's more dumbass moves. They literally halved potential sales by adding Sky High.

Not that he's a bad figure, but just imagine how many more they would have sold if they included say, a Skeletor Skeleton warrior army builder.

It doesn't make sense to me to sell the sky sled... then later on sell the Battle Ram.

I could easly see this as a vintage version and battle ram could easly be repainted in green like the art on the box.

This is a prime example of Mattel pushing a figure that they know most fans might not even give a crap about. Just like they push subs with figures no one wants. They know EVERYONE wants a Sky Sled, so they package the good with the bad. This time, I'm not going to give in to their greed. Easy pass! They should have made the Battle Ram, I doubt it would cost that much. 4 halves, 4 wheels, and 2 metal axles. It doesn't need a functioning rocket launcher. No... Instead we get half a vehicle. WTF? This line needs to hurry up and get finished already.

Oh and am I the only one who thinks that there were SO MANY other options for Sky High's legs?... but they go with the overly used Trap Jaw type. UFB!

They look good on him i think. The rock warriors were to much for me with the trap-jaw boots. It doesnt bother me that much that they together. Star wars does this all the time. Sky high looks awesome. I would have taken at least 4 sky sleds but i just take 2. i doubt we will see much vehicules in this line anymore so i am happy with what we get. Battle ram is uninteresting to me anyway. Just need the sky sled. Maybe they could bring something for the villains before it ends.

I guess check eBay and see completed listings. I think it's a great figure, and looks real good with Beast Man.

You know I picked the Griffin up @ that price as well....I was looking forward to posing him w/Beastmin...but never found a BM (why are all my abbrev's BM's lately??) for a price that wasn't just as costly as a Titan Metroplex....so I gave up on BM's (haha again for the 40th time) Griffin is gonna be best friends w/Mossman.....but its an awesome Toy...Glad I picked him up.....
