MOTUC Attak Trak speculation and discussion
Come now how many of us always wanted one of the most popular vehicles to show up in this cartoon, and when we finally got it, it was actually the small trak. This is now our chance to get those vehicles that we never got throughout the line (Collector, Basher, Doombuster,etc) and this one is by far one of those Iconic vehicles from that era. It always reminded me a bit of the turtle van from TMNT when that came out, but now that we have a voice to talk about what fans want lets put some backing behind this. Heres a pic for those of you who dont know what it looks like. http://www.cartoonscrapbook.com/01pics-L/he-man_L04.jpg
Is a Filmation version of AttakTrak wanted?/ How Much would you be willing to pay?
Hi everyone, I grew-up playing with AttakTrak, which was designed by Mattel before He-Man existed as a Cartoon via FIlmation. (The Cartoon changed it so it would be easier to draw and animate.)
The Red one that held one character, had awesome tread wheels, that let the toy change directions if it hit something, and ran on batteries. I played with it for hours upon hours as a kid.
One thing I would love to see from MOTUC is a filmation (Blue-clear van-like) version of attack-Trak, even if it was a version without batteries. Just because it would match the filmation cartoon. I have 2 of the original 80's version, but I would love a "Filmation version". OF course if the Filmation version also had batteries and was mobile, that would be icing on the cake.
I know Mattel does not want to do any future vehicles at all, given sales of WInd-Raider; but from what I remember as a kid. Wind-Raider was a boring toy; and AttackTrack was Awesome!!! I played with it for hours at a time, ... for months. I would put a figure on it, and chase it accross the room, almost unceasingly. Facinated by how if it hit a wall, or an object, it would just change direction. (An original roomba I guess.) I always wondered what angle it would change to next.
Attack-Trak in Filmation was more van-like and held at least 3 characters. At a minimum Adam and Man-at-arms up front and at least Cringer, if not Cringer and OrKo both in back. I'm guessing that a Filmation version would have clear sides that would open to insert/remove figures. Probably the same tread wheels.
I do not know if having AttackTrak say anything would be possible, as Mattel is avaoiding any electronic components, or even if attack track, would potentially be able to move like the original, because I do not think Mattel wants batteries in anything either. However, I would still want one, even if it had to be moved by hand, simply because I've always wished that a Cartoon accurate version of AttakTrak existed.
I was just wondering how many people on this site would want one also. I guess this is a survey question thread;
A) Would you want a Filmation Version of AttakTrak?
B), also If you want one, How much would you be willing to pay?
C) What features would you want?
D) Would the cost you want to pay, change via features present?
For myself, I want one Period. (I'd even pay as much, or higher as they wanted for the failed ecto-1 regardless) I just want one.
I would at a minimum: I hope for the following Features:
a Filmation Accurate shape,
an ability to hold at least 3 characters (2 characters in front and at least enough space for MOTUC Cringer in back);
opening clear or top sides,
maybe a back opening with possible ramp, and
at least the filmation tread wheels that do actually move, like the wheels from the original toy.
Ideally I'd also like a Filmation AttakTrak to be able to move on its own via batteries,
or even have a few "Talking Phases" as AttackTrak could speak. I do realize those 2 ideal features would probably be "pie in the sky" features, since Mattel is avoiding all electronics in MOTUC.
What about everyone else here on this site?
This is meant to be a survey, (Even if unrealistic) Just curious.
Would you want a Filmation AttakTrak?
Moderators, Please remove duplicate of this thread in motuc 2008 marketplace, I clicked on wrong location, and didn't realize until after I had posted. I believe this belongs here.
FYI my Original post has AttackTrak in title, but actual toy is AttakTrak no "c" my appollogies for my typo, and incorrect location. Please help. I was not sure how to fix it, so I tried just putting a new thread here. I hope I followed the correct way to correct this.
