    Sweeet custom there, SnakeEyes!! I collected 200X, and am slowly starting to build a MOTU Classics collection having started with Zodac and Man At Arms. My plan was to focus on just the Mineternia cast of characters, the 1982 lineup as it was the pre-Filmation stuff that hooked me into MOTU as well.

    But I think I'm probably getting a mixed bag of stuff from family for Christmas because of the Better Than Black Friday sale...told them to get while the gettin' was good
    I haven't looked at those DC comics in several years -- when I go home for the holidays I'm definitely rummaging through my brother's long boxes to find them and give them another read.

    Thanks, WW. Happy to see another Joe fan on board. I too collected 200X and only planned to collect the characters from the first four mini-comics in Classics. But I also had a buddy who gave me figures that broke my rule...and then the floodgates just flew open. I have to say, I do have some rules that I haven't broken...no 200X style characters. As much as I loved the 200X line, I'm not a fan of those elements in Classics.

    Definitely - Xmas '82 for me and my brother was a mindscrambler: Skeletor and He-man + my first straight arm Joes, Scarlett, Cobra Enemy, Flash & Short Fuze! Chicago Horde? I grew up in Wheaton by where Jimmy Hayes used to work that Graham Crackers. Toys by Rizzi forever

    Curious to see if Jon Chu will dig deep into the source material like he did with Joe and put some Mineternia elements in the MOTU movie.

    Man, if only. Of course, there always has to be a happy medium, I'd hate to lose at least a few of the later elements entirely, for example Prince Adam would be nice to have in part, or far more importantly, Man-At-Arm's mustache.

    I would really love to have these elements in a film, but let's be honest, those who take time to look into the minicomics are far outnumbered by the Filmation fans. Oh well. I suppose I can dream!

    So...now we can re-enact that dogfight between the Wind Raider and the Battle Ram sled in Battle of the Clouds! Getting the Sky Sled gave me great memories of Pre-Filmation He-Man's ride of choice. Back in the day, when vehicles were unique creations and devices, instead of having whole fleets of them.

    ^^^ I had that one (still have it!)

    I'm okay with fleets of them, depending on the canon. Moreso the Wind Raider. But the Battle Ram is mostly going to belong to He-Man only on my shelf. I can see an evolution though...He-Man has a unique Battle Ram, and over time he lends the sky sled to Eternos to make a fleet of them.

    I'll definitely be doing Battle in the Clouds photos with the Battle Ram. In fact I already tried with the Wind Raider, but it's difficult b/c the toy doesn't match up to the vehicle's proportions in the comic. He-Man can't stand on the side of it like he did in the minicomic. I tried a couple of different things but they didn't look good.

    But back to the topic...I don't imagine there are "fleets" of these vehicles but there are several of them. They are the "found" relics of another era; the era of the ancient Eternian scientists.

    Since the Battle Ram did very well, I wonder what's the next vehicle that fans want besides that back of the Battle Ram?

    I'd like to get the Attack Trak in all brown like the mini-comics! I thought it looked so much more rugged. It's like the Tumbler of Pre-Filmation!

    Seems like another Idol thread is approaching...

    Besides the back half of the Battle Ram, I think the Roton is the next logical choice. Followed maybe by the Talon Fighter

    I'm with you regarding the brown Attak Trak (He-Man Meets Ram Man! and The Magic Stealer! for those who haven't seen the relevant minicomics). I did a poll on this ages ago though, and I think that sadly most fans would prefer the toy red. Not that that looks bad (it doesn't), but the rugged brown version is so much better.

    It is already sort of more cartoony vehicle, even if I did enjoy it a lot as a kid. I am not sure if there really is other released vehicles other than Windraider and Battleram that fit to the pre-filmation style. I am not sure if there is any fitting vehicle for the early style? Maybe the steeds, if you count them?

    I like this idea except switch them. Maybe Talon Fighter next since we are getting a Classics Castle Grayskull.

    I would buy that in a heartbeat. I do like how the 4H proto for the back half of the Battle Ram incorporates the battle chariot design element of those super huge back wheels.

    YES! I've wanted this since I was 8. However since it was never made, I just don't see it in the cards...at least without a billion fans crying foul.

    My most wanted vehicle list remains intact...until we get the back of the Battle Ram...

    1) Battle Ram (whole or back half)
    2) Attack Track
    3) Point Dread and Talon Fighter
    4) Roton
    5) Stridor

    Savage Masters Group on FB

    Hey Pre-Filmationites! Just thought I'd share the link to a new FB Group I started that will definitely be of interest to Pre-Filmation era fans called "Savage Masters of the Universe." In addition to chatting about current topics through a pre-Filmation lens, I will be celebrating and analyzing the first four mini-comics in detail over the next few weeks. Check it out! https://www.facebook.com/groups/savagemasters/
