From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

A skyhopper was any airspeeder designed to operate within a planet's atmosphere. Skyhoppers were commonly used as pleasure or utility craft, and were often piloted as racers by bush-pilots in the Outer Rim Territories.

Incom Corporation's T-16 skyhopper was perhaps the most famous model. Luke Skywalker owned one during his youth on Tatooine, and Owen Lars was known to have kept an earlier model at his father's homestead during the era of the Clone Wars.

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Skyhopper is an Decepticon Micromaster from the Generation One continuity family.
"Where are my legs?"

Skyhopper thinks a lot about the symbolism and philosophy of fire. How it purifies, and transmutes. How it symbolizes both the destruction in a conflagration, and the creation one finds in a forge. How in the wild it can destroy a forest, only to leave fertile land for new growth.

Unfortunately, he's not too bright, so he mostly expresses this as, "Haw! That burned up real pretty. Let's burn something else."[1]

  • Skyhopper (Micromaster Base, 1989)
He's that small grey spot in the middle of the chopper...
A redeco of Storm Cloud, Skyhopper transforms into a gray and green Dassault Rafale fighter jet. He was sold with a military helicopter, which could transform into a battle base, and connect with other Micromaster stations via modular ramps.
This mold was also used to make Starcloud. His helicopter's mold was later used to make Skyhyper.
