Does yours have the hair

Does yours have the hair trigger for the launching jet? You so much as look at mine the wrong way and it goes flying off.

One of the orange Lego Galaxy Force jets has the same "rear cockpit becomes forward cockpit" transformation. I wonder if it's an homage to Sky Arrow, or just parallel designing.

Yeah.... I'm pretty sure mine has the hair trigger cockpit syndrome also.

So do we know for certain that Mattel actually released Sky Arrows with regular missiles and not the "safety" missiles? Every one I've seen, even when they were on the toy shelves back in the day had that redesigned rockets sticker and the stupid star missiles...

And thanks for the review - a long time coming! Everyone may have a "case" of these things in their collection but that doesn't take away that it's a pretty cool toy.

I only opened the one I reviewed and while I wouldn't say it launched from looking at it, it was pretty sensitive, now that you mention it. And yeah, I don't recall seeing any with the standard missiles, but again, I've only been paying attention for a relatively short time. Someone with a longer track record than myself would probably have to answer that one.
