    Top Gun 2 (In my opinion the better 5 pack, so I'll show all the cars)

      I was just going to post about these when you did . My WM just received them yesterday as well! I got a good haul!! Sorry for not the best picture as the lighting wasn't the best...

      I just love that Raptor! Looks sharp in black and with all the detailing (headlights, etc).

          I'd have to agree with you - the Top Gun 2 pack looks to be much nicer. Thanks for the closeups!

              The aircraft announced alongside this line were what really got my interest, but the cars in those packs are just plain gorgeous! I am NOT a completionist by any means, but looks like I'm gonna have to get both packs, the Skybusters, and the aircraft carrier playset. Just, at the time, Walmart is a store that is off-limits by my standards due to COVID; and the fact that it is the busiest store in my town.

                I saw that video last week too, but then forgot to ask about them, well neato, now I see they are out there. Think I'll probably get both, the first one does meet my criteria of having 3, considering the Jeep, Bronco, and Swing Wing, and the second pack is an easy yes with 4 I like to collect.

                The Swing Wing isn't my favorite airplane casting, but it's got two things going for it, first, moving parts, but then it is also an old Lesney model, so that is even better, only drawback it almost looks like it might be all plastic now. The Raptor is the star of this pack for me, although I really like that old racer, kind of wish they could have done the tanker in appropriate military colors, even if they had to leave the US Navy markings off.

                    Haven't reached my neighborhood yet, just checked this afternoon. Now that my governor has ended the "essential travel only" restrictions, planning on making a run to all area Walmarts and Targets tomorrow, all the way to the border (about 60 miles each way). Haven't done that in years...that's what "cabin fever" will get ya. (Not sure what Oregon thinks about interstate travel yet, but the last WM on the list is just across the Snake River, which is also the border there; for Idahoans in that area, that's the biggest and pretty much only general merchandise retailer available, so I can't imagine it would be off-limits to us.) Of course, the mail still comes, and I posted some pics of what I got this week from overseas in the Apparatus and Other bays.

                    These 5-packs look like they'll come home with me, mostly for the 'novelty' of the aircraft in each one. I haven't collected jet/fighter aircraft from SkyBusters, just the emergency ones. But I like the looks of those jets. And the theaters just reopened last weekend after two months closed, so maybe we'll see Top Gun's latest installment before too long, not to mention whatever else might have been in movies without the virus issues.

                      I hope the Aston gets released as a single.

                        The models look great, and like Douglas I think the fuel truck should have been done in military colors. I feel these sets where targeted at the adult collector, as if they where for kids it would have made more sense to include a few military or airfield vehicles in each set.

                        Also due to Clovis, I hear the release of “Top Gun Maverick” is being pushed off to the holidays.

                              I found mine today at WM and it was in a shipper display along the end cap. So be sure to look at the end, I almost missed it. Still no sky busters.
