    Vehicles: Top 3 "most played with as kid" VS. Top 3 "most wanted in MOTUC?"

    (NO BEASTS, CREATURES or MECHANICAL BEASTS/CREATURES – just for the sake of this discussion, I will be using He-Man.Org's Classification system for this, which means NO Stridor/Night Stalker/Battle Bones/Mantisaur/Turbodactyl/Tyrantisaurus Rex/Bionatops/the meteorbs, etc...) [Note: POP had no vehicles, only creatures]

    So first off, I'd like to know...
    What were your top 3 "classic" vehicles that were your favorites to actually "play" with as a kid... (any classic vehicle from either "classic" line: MOTU, [NA]He-Man)

    Vs.

    What are your top 3 "most wanted" vehicles for the MOTUC line. (any vehicle from any line, cartoon, comic, book, or any other media to date: MOTU, [NA]He-Man, 200X, DC/Marvel/200X/mini-comics, etc... that can likely/legally be made.)

    My Top 3 most played with:

    1] For myself, the Laser Bolt was my absolute favorite vehicle to play with as a kid! I loved racing it around and then springing it up into attack mode! Sooo cool!



    2] Bashasaurus would be my second most favorite to play with – I just loved bashing a group of standing figures or building blocks making them all tumble like dominoes!



    3] And while I loved the motorization of the Dragon Walker and Spydor, in the end I think they just moved too slow... So the third place is still kind of a toss up: I loved playing with the Blaster Hawk, shooting down enemies with flying discs from afar; I loved the fast-moving rotating blades of the Roton; and then I also loved the "chomping" action of the Land Shark. Hard to choose between the three, but I think I'm going with the Land Shark for third place!




    Vs.

    My Top 3 most wanted for MOTUC:


    1] Wind Raider. Just so iconic, especially in regards to the Filmation series, it's a must have for me.

    2] Battle Ram. Again very iconic, plus it has the versatility of splitting in two and taking to the skies!

    3] Laser Bolt. With as much fun as I had as a kid with this vehicle, I think it would make just as great of a "compact" vehicle in the MOTUC line, especially if it includes it's classic two-mode action feature!

    I was just curious and thought this could be an interesting discussion to find out what all of your favorite vehicles were to "play" with as a kid, versus what vehicles you are most hoping to see in the current MOTUC line, especially if the main focus will be on the vehicle's sculpt and seating-ability as opposed to it's action-features.

    My favorite 3 to play with were: (in no particular order)

    Talon Fighter
    Wind Raider
    Attack Trak

    My top 3 I'd like to see be made are:

    Talon Fighter
    Battle Ram
    Wind Raider

    I was trying to think of some evil vehicles and the only one I could come up with are Roton, Land Shark and Mantisaur (for Hordak) What other bad guy vehicles were there??

    I had the same problem, I wanted to choose some evil vehicles but the heroic ones won out. There wasn't as many evil vehicles as there were heroic, but then one could argue that at least something like the Battle Ram's front jet could be viewed as neutral since the bad guys were often seen using it in the Filmation toon. As for pure evil vehicles, there was Spydor, Land Shark, Roton, and the Fright Fighter, plus there were some evil NA vehicles as well.

    So are these your most played with as a kid? ...Or are they the ones you look forward to the most in MOTUC? ...Or both?

    2) Night Stalker

    My top 3 I'd like to see made in MOTUC are:
    1) Battle Ram with Sky Sled (I'd hope to see a seperate release of the Sky Sled as well!)
    2) Wind Raider
    3) Talon Fighter (I hope to see Point Dread eventually as well)
    MY MOTUC WANTS: Gwildor, Rotar, Mermista, Angella, Peekablue, Spinerella, Perfuma, Master Sebrian, Sagitar, Tuskador, Darius, Kayo, Vizar, Nocturna, Spinwit, Artilla, Saurod, Ninjor, Evil Seed, Lord Masque, Twistoid, Hunga the Harpy, Dragstor, Vultak, Multi-Bot, Blast-Attak, Tung Lashor, Sssqueeeze, Lizorr, Hoove, Critta, Quakke, Butthead, Staghorn

    Wind Raider, Battle Ram, and Roton, with Talon Fighter followed very closely! But I actually liked them all!

    Well, I only had 2 vehicles as a kid: 1) The Wind Raider and 2) The Battle Ram.

    What I look forward to are: 1) The Wind Raider, 2) The Battle Ram and 3) The Land Shark.

    The Talon Fighter came close though...

    3 Most Played With as a Kid and Most Wanted in the line are the same for me:

    - Windraider
    - Battleram/Sky Sled
    - Fright Fighter


    (My fourth would have been Blaster Hawk) Was hard to leave it off the list.

    3 most played with as a kid

    Battle ram
    Roton
    Road Ripper

    ...Land Shark would have been fourth. outside of that, the others didn't see much play. (I didn't own a wind raider or fright fighter or I would have loved them) Attack Trac, Dragon Walker, and Spydor didn't have much play value imo

    Want to see made!

    Wind Raider
    Land Shark
    Bashasaurus

    (also Battle Ram and Attack trac, & Talon Fighter! but those are my top 3)

    Not counting the beasts (Tyrantisaurus was my favorite), my favorite to play with from what I had were:

    1. Land Shark
    2. Roton
    3. Fright Fighter

    I never realized I pretty much only had the evil vehicles (and Road Ripper).

    My most wanted are:

    1. Battle Ram/Sky Sled
    2. Wind Raider
    3. Talon Fighter w/ Point Dread

    I always wanted those three as a kid, Attack Trak would have been fourth place.

    Most Wanted

    On a side note. I remember have a vehicle that was red which had a grey track looped over the entire vehicle. I can't find it anymore or remember the name or if was even a MOTU but I always used it as a MOTU vehicle. Does anyone remember it???

    Most wanted:
    Battle Ram
    Wind Raider
    Battle Chariot (pre-filmation)

    Those are the ones that are iconic to me. As far as childhood vehicles go, I only had the Roton as a kid, and only remember playing with a friend's Road Ripper in terms of anything else. But, aside from my three most wanted, I don't really like most of the motu vehicles. A couple of them are okay, but they are not the strong point of this frachise, lol.

    1. Point Dread/Talon Fighter
    2. Battle-Ram
    3. Attak-Trak
    4. Spydor
    5. Mantisaurs
    6. Road Ripper

    Got carried away.

    Unless the two mechanical horses count as vehicles & not beasts? In which case, that one (not two because Nightstrider is just a repaint of Stridor) tops the list.

    Would like to see them come with Fisto & Jitsu though.
