    Has it been confirmed that the vehicle that we're getting is NOT the Battle Ram?

    I was wondering if Toy Guru was pulling a red herring on us and that maybe the 4 Horsemen showed off the Battle Ram before it was announced. Now, assuming we are getting an all new vehicle, I would expect we would see a Battle Ram as a next vehicle since the prototype has been crafted. However, since it was crafted so long ago, and it just so happens that the 4H make a Battle Ram at the time that Toy Guru announced we're getting vehicles, it seems too much of a coincidence. Granted, you could say the same with Toy Guru & co wanting to bring back MOTU again & the 4H crafting a MOTUC He-Man proto, but I find that one more believable than the coincidence with the vehicle. So, with that said, are we truly getting a new vehicle, or did we find Battle Ram as are Christmas present too early & Mattel is trying to play it off. Mind you, I'm not complaining, because I love the Battle Ram, and sadly, it's one of the vintage vehicles I never owned. And with the Wind Raider being as iconic a vehicle as BR & a good candidate for 1st vehicle, I know in my heart I'd rather a mobile missle launcher with sky sled over a plane with a grappling hook.

    Totally agree with you there. For me the WR is the first thing that comes to my mind when I think about a Motu vehicle. BUT: it is Battle Ram that I'd like to see first.

    To the best of my knowledge, he has neither confirmed or denied exactly what vehicle it is going to be. I think(without using my weak search-fu) he has stated it is going to be a midsize vehicle though.

    I'll be happy with either the Battle Ram(never had it) or the Wind Raider(was my 1st motu vehicle).

    I never knew about the prototype Battle Ram until this thread, so my thought was that the first vehicle was sure to be the Wind Raider. Now I'm leaning a little more toward the Battle Ram. But I am looking forward to either.

    I hope it is Battle Ram now we've already seen it.

    If we were to only get one vehicle in this line, I'd like it to be that Battle Ram. As iconic as the Wind Raider is, I actually want the Talon Fighter more, especially if they give us a really cool Point Dread.

    I want that Battle Ram, but I will be happy with anything. I'm particularly hoping for the Wind Raider. I want 'em all!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    It's going to be the Battle Ram.

    As cheap as Mattel is, I find it very hard to believe they'd commission the 4H to sculpt a new vehicle when they've already done one just for the hell of it.

    I personally think that it was all a ploy to gauge opinion about a Vehicle in the line.

    I think the BR reveal at SDCC was 'Blood in the water' to see the feeding frenzy! so I feel pretty confident we will see BR this year!

    It is a bit too early to tell, but a mid-sized vehicle like the one planned for fall 2011 will likely run between $30 to $50 dollars depending on how complex it is.

    It is actually still in the air. We are reviewing costs and features. We hope to have this to announce at SDCC 2011.
    Depends whether you consider the Battle Ram small enough to be "mid-sized" on that sort of scale. It ain't the Sky Sled alone, though.

    Oh, it wasn't for the hell of it. It was a spec script in three-dimensional form, an unprompted audition for the vehicle-sculpting gig.

    And Mattel would have to pay the same to use the Battle Ram the 4H already sculpted as to have a whole new BR done as a result.

    That Battle Ram looks fantastic! I can't imagine Mattel sitting on that design for too long, as that would be just mean.

    I would like to know, how most figures should sit in the vehicles, when the loincloths are so sturdy...
