I can add the following to your list of 2017 Sky Busters. These have been found at Toys R Us stores in the US.

DVR34 SB 91 Cirrus Vision - same livery as 2010 with blue and white 90 livery now with landing struts replacing the old open spoke wheel carriages.
DVR18 SB 138 Classic Attack - new casting of biplane circa WWI vintage in dark blue and tan with lion logo. Nice!
DVR31 SB 130 MBX Metal Eagle - new casting of what appears to be a steam punk WW2 bomber on steroids in olive green and grey. Ugly
DVR20 SB 140 Strike Hawk - new casting of non licensed fighter aircraft looks like morphed F22 and drone in brown and olive. Poor color choice.
DVR32 SB 93 Snow Explorer - in similar but not identical 2011 orange and white livery

In addition, Subway sandwich shops in the US are currently running a promotion offering a Matchbox Sky Buster with their kids meal. The models are made by a license under Matchbox name but not by Mattel. So these toys are not identical castings to the Mattel released metal models. The altered models are all plastic and have no wheel or tampa but do include a label sheet. The models are in baggies like McDonald Happy Meal toys. The three models issued are Subsonic Interceptor in yellow and black, Battle Bomber in dark grey and blue, and Strato Saucer in black and white.

Just a quick correction, I mentioned one of the three Subway exclusive promo models was the Strato Saucer. Actually, the model is the Turbo Tornado. Sorry for the mixup.

You"re welcome. I miss the days also when Skybusters were easier to find and you didn't have to make up some number system to figure out what you are missing! Mattel needs to do a little more with this line!
