"TIGER FORCE - a special unit within the GI JOE team - is called up for a secret and highly dangerous mission in the remote jungle!"

I've always liked Tiger Force. I can't really explain why but that subgroup has always appealed to me. Regardless, there are things about it that don't make much sense from a practical view of what is supposed to be a covert jungle assault team. Most of the figures from the original release in the vintage line followed that theme pretty well. International and later releases? Not so much. Same goes with the vehicles. My goal here was to recreate the original team but try to stay closer to the spirit of it's purpose. That means no bright colors. I've also cherry picked figures from later releases as well and added two new members, one of which is a new character. Instead of doing strait repaints of existing figures I wanted to try to go a different direction and tie in some of the other versions of these characters as well.

Skystriker here involved the least amount of thought. He's only had one figure so there wasn't much to choose from as far as inspiration goes. However, since I had the body from the RoC Ace that I didn't really need, I decided to use that instead of just repainting Wild Weasel. This way he wouldn't look exactly the same and would have some differences to help him stand out on his own while still looking like his original figure.
