    For comparison:

    Actually it's just the Battle Ram! The 200X line had the Battle Ram Chariot. I made the same mistake!



    In any case, it's beautiful. I asked on the WTFWTK thread about this... but I hope after the initial sell-through that they'll offer up the front part as a separate vehicle so I can buy multiples. One for Teela and the palace guards for sure... maybe Adam too...

    Oh, thank God that they followed the vintage one. When you said "chariot" I thought you meant they did one like 200x.

    This is much better, and very iconic. I'm saddened that it isn't part of the subscription, but for this I'll wrestle with the website.

    Yeah sorry about the 'Chariot' I regretted that as soon as I posted (can a mod take the that word off?).

    It's exciting that this line seems to be progressing rapidly. I was not expecting this at all. Maybe 2012 will bring us our first playset!

    Battle Ram is definitely the highlight for me. Too bad it is not part of the subscription

    Did they confirm if it is for 2010 or 2011? and it looks beautiful....
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    wait... there was a picture of the Battle Ram!??!

    They Trademarked "Battle Ram Chariot" (or renewed it, as it had been trademarked for the 200X line).

    I think they are using the full name because in the early mini-comics, it's called a "Chariot" too

    Very nice looking but undoubtedly going to cost a bundle good thing I've got a whole year before it comes out. I like it but I don't mind the wait.

    Kinda of a surprise too I was really expecting the Wind Raider for the first vehicle. More famous plus probably smaller and easier to do.

    Wanna hear the sad part. I never owned a Battle Ram as a kid and in fact still do not have one to this day. In all fairness I've put more effort into getting the figures and not much into getting vehicles but still...

    Looking forward to it. Hope they have the next vehicle waiting when this one is released but also hope they cherry pick the vehicles since there were some less than desirable ones. Kind of glad it is not in the sub since it might have taken up a beast spot. . .but I'll be thinking differently when it sells out before I get one.

    I hope they do something similar for the packaging as the vintage one. I wouldn't even mind if they used the same artwork and just updated the package for MOTUC.

    I really hope they don't put it in a window box or something like that. I don't want to buy 2 of each vehicle to keep one in the package like I am with the figures, and it would be nice if the box that it comes in could be displayed next to my MOC collection without looking like it's empty.

    Window boxes are mandatory nowadays for the MISB folks.

    My dear lord! This is the best MOTUC news for me since this line has started! This really made my day!
    They actually brought back the old Battle-Ram from it's ashes, only to look better. YES.
    Now I can't wait for the other super cool vehicles like the Wind-Raider, Talon-Fighter, Attack-Track and so on...

    The Battle Ram is awesome. I like it alot. My town used to have this church carnival style fair when I was a kid and they would have a tag sale. Well, one year I found this thing missing the sky sled. I knew what it was, and bought it even though it was incomplete. The following year at the same fair, I found the sky sled being sold by the same lady! haha. So I completed it (ish.. don't know where the missle is) over the course of a year and the Battle Ram cost me 50 cents in all!

    Which brings me to my next point.. the vehicle is awesome, but I hope Mattel doesn't overcharge for this. I think this should be priced at maybe $35.

    Great pick for first vehicle though!

    Oh, I didn't know about this! I just went to check out the pics of the new figures on my dinner break. We're getting a Battle Ram too!? Awesome! My son Ram will get his own Battle Ram. Sweet! I was expecting only the sled, too.

    I think it will be more expensive than that for sure. Otherwise they would have included vehicles in the 'oversized figure' category (i.e. max $40). This will be 50 or 60 bucks I think (closer to 60 probably). It looks awesome, but with the price it will inevitably be, I don't know if I'll be able to afford it.

    Has anyone bigger and better pics of this beauty?
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    Pretty dang sweet. I can't believe this almost went unnoticed!
