    I agree. I can't see it selling out during early access either. When it was first revealed I thought I would want two of them. The more I think about it the less appeal the set has to me for the price. I'll probably order one during early access but I am still questioning whether it's actually worth it considering with shipping it will cost me between $60-65. It just doesn't seem cool enough for the price and I rarely pass on anything in this line.

    Well, I plan to offset the shipping by maybe getting a second He-Man for MOSC, or a King Hiss, or maybe both....hopefully the "essentials" stay on the EA page, and is not a glitch, it's about time they make that possible.
    Recent....Flutterina, NA Skeletor
    Coming....Rio Blast (sold already)
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    There just isn't anything else extra I want this month so the shipping is a bitter pill to swallow. I hate getting two shipping charges in one month too. I wish there was a way to add it to my Filmation sub order. I know a lot of fans will disagree but I wish the set was being released in October or December when there are other extra items I'll be ordering.

    Was reading an interesting excerpt last night from "Mastering the Universe", by the ever-lovin and infamous Roger Sweet. In it he talks about the origins of both the Battle Ram and Wind Raider, stating that the Wind Raider in particular was (in his opinion) one of the worst designed vehicles of the early line and a poor seller when it hit retail. I chuckled when he called it a dinghy with wings and its only poorly designed and lazy action feature an anchor that launched off its hood. In his estimation its sales equaled its design and although it showed up quite often in the cartoon and has since joined the ranks of many a beloved toy in fans hearts, I find it incredibly ironic that it sold similarly poorly when Matty attempted to relaunch it. Perhaps we children of the 80's remembered it more fondly than we ever had any real desire to own it? After all, if it didn't sell well to our arguably much more highly influenced younger selves why would it sell to us as adults? And a quick apology to the Horsemen. I do not speak to the quality of the W.R. here as I consider that beyond compare a work of art.

    Funny then that Matty considered this the iconic vehicle that should launch their foray into selling them. You know what they say about history. Anyway, according to Roger the Battle Ram- the other vehicle he described at length- made little sense, being essentially two different vehicles mashed together one half of which was essentially useless. But he did mention that it sold much better than poor old Wind Raider. So, much like Wind Raider's then and now sales essentially mirroring each other it will be interesting to see how the more useful half of B.R. does come sale day. Will history repeat itself, as it often does?
    I had the Battle Ram and not the Wind Raider as a kid. I had a friend who had the WR, and the wings snapped off pretty early on that thing. I thought it was kind of cool, but I definitely preferred my Battle Ram, as it had a lot more play value.
    By the ancients!!!

    BATTLE-RAM!
    That scenario playing out (and the pre-order going through) would pretty much make my toy-life complete.

    Newbie question so forgive me: I was thinking that the Sky Sled was part of the subscription and I'd automatically get one, but since my September renewal didn't show it I'm assuming that I'll have to be ready on the Early Access to order one...amirite?

    That would rock...and then for 2015 they could announce a pre-sale for the Roton with a subscription incentive. If you purchase a subscription AND pre-order the Roton, you get a discount.

    Going to order one Early Access. Bring it to Power Con. Sell it for twice the price. Buy another one on Monday.

    I say why buy 1 if you can buy two at EA and make twice the profit at PC.
    Jii Dee regarding Matty's view on MOTUC Collectors: "Here be whiny surrender monkey dragons".

    MOTUC NEEDS: Sssqueeze, Dragstor, Saurod, Blast Attack, & Lord Masque.

    I settled on 2 sets(plus Poison Ivy). I know they wanted to get Sky High made, but man, 2 sleds for $50 would have been a lot better than 1 for $50. Now where's that horse I'm supposed to beat...

    I hope the sled is still up for sale on the day of and I get it. If the whole early access thing has it selling out that will be that final middle finger to me. I will drop the line entirely. Sky sled/Battle ram was my favorite back in the day and i look deeply forward to the modern version even if they don't put out the back of the vehicle. But..if it goes away I am done.

    It is showing up correctly as $50 for me.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    That is awful. Hope they get it worked out for you before you order. It is still correct for me...thankfully.
