Hi Charliep.Just went through a brand new case of these today and NO Skyclone. Must be not out yet eventhough its listed.
However, I did find a new Green & Black Aero Blast in the batch which has the DKG92 number.
The Skyclone maybe DKG95??

Hi Tom,
Thanks for the update. There isn't much activity this year in the skybuster department. I thought SBs were doing well for Mattel. The following is my 2016 list according to my notes and I have yet to find DKG92 & DKG95. There is also a number gap between DKG79 Batwing and DKG84 Eurofighter Typhoon. Thanks for posting the picture.

Usually we have about 36 planes each year. I was also wondering what's going on with this series.

Hi Tom,
Just found DKG92 Aero Blast. I thought Mattel Rep stated that skybusters have been doing well for them. It is strange as this year there seem to be lack of planning and we are well below the usual annual number of releases. Besides the dozen that I found plus the named "Skyclone" there was only the Disney model. This will make 2016 the least amount of skybusters issued since 1999. I do not think any 4 packs were released either.
2016 List
DKG 79 BatWing
DKG 84 Eurofighter Typhoon
DKG 85 Sky Safari
DKG 86 Stealth Launch
DKG 87 Biplane
DKG 88 Fang Fighter
DKG 89 Boeing 747-400
DKG 90 Battle Bomber
DKG 91 Rescue Helicopter
DGG 92 Aero Blast (lt green w/graphics)
DKG 93 Boeing AH-94 Apache (lt blue w/purple cockpit)
DKG 94 Flameflight (red & white) New model
DKG95? Skyclone (New model) (have yet to find)

Hi Speters999,

Thank you for posting the pictures of the latest skybusters releases. I found the same six at the local Walmart this morning. According to my notes, this is what I found this year. If anyone has more info please let me know. I am assuming that the blister pack starting with codes DVR are 2017 releases unless someone out there knows better. Thanks.
