Late 2015 iussue of Eurofighter Typhoon in 4 pack

Postby Chuck Wiersma » Sun Jan 31, 2016 10:38 pm

In late 2015 a four pack of Sky Busters marked Dog Fight Pack was released. I found mine at a Meijer store in Ohio (USA). One model in the pack appears to be unique and not previously issued - the Eurofighter Typhoon in white with black wings with green, white and silver livery. A photo of this model was shown in an ambassador report at one time. I have never seen this model in single. I have also seen the four pack on Amazon.com if you are looking for it. The set also includes the F-15 Eagle in grey, Flight Strike in metallic silver with red wings, and the Lockheed Martin F-35 B in green and camou. All three of these other models in the pack were previously released although the wheels on some of them may have changed.

Thanks for posting this. Always look over these thinking they are just regular issue models. I just got one.

I believe that the Flight Strike in silver and red is also an exclusive color to this set. It was discussed in an Ambassador's report.

I could't find a reference to the Euro typhoon in black and white anywhere.

These decos look so familiar I did not notice - and I have not cataloged that set in my records so did not note the difference. Then this means these are the last two issues for 2015. Issued in a four pack but apparently not as singles.

Chuck, this seems to be the case. By the way, both of these also come with the older type wheels and the new non-metal type.
