    Dragon Walker in MOTUC

    Who wants to see a Dragon Walker in MOTUC? Despite being totally impractical, I always thought this was one of the coolest looking vehicles in the vintage line. I'd want to to function just like the vintage toy, but of course bigger with Classicized details

    Would be extremely cool but full motorized action would be an absolute requirement. This vehicle would be awful without it.

    Still, I think we need a Roton first.

    Agreed on both points

    Would they do a vehicle with an action feature?

    I think they would. Battle Ram got the working launcher. Wind Raider got an action feature too. With vehicles you don't need to compromise the sculpt to give them action features/motorization.

    I NEVER had the vintage Dragon Walker, which is one of my biggest regrets, concerning the vintage line!
    I see the Dragon Walker as the main Heroic vehicle, just as Spydor is the main Evil vehicle.

    An updated working Classics version of the Dragon Walker would be too awesome for words..!
    Leech sucks..!

    No, they would not add amotor to it, look at something as simple as Webstor, Dragstor, Rio Blast.

    All vehicles and playsets so far have retained vintage action features, or even added new ones

    The 4H can even re-sculpt the Dragon Walker in order to be more a mechanic dragon like in the 200X era, but keeping the colors and design from the vintage one.

    No thanks. I don't need any Mattel Designed 200x vehicles, even re-imagined by the Horsemen.

    Maybe I have not explained it well. I want the vintage Dragon Walker, but more in a dragon form that in a weird vehicle...

    My favorite vehicle as a kid. I really want a dragon walker in classics.

    I'd love it! As long as it was motorized. A dragon walker that couldn't walk doesn't bear thinking about!

    Add me to the list of those that want a MOTUC Dragon Walker! Never had one as a young kid but got one packaged from a Figures Inc. catalog in the mid-90's. It's a cool but oddly shaped vehicle. I would love to see how the Four Horsemen could make the design true to the vintage but add some practicability to it.

    Had it as a kid but never really liked it. It was noisy and never really worked right. I ended up using the top part as the bad guys' Sky Sled.

    So no, I do not want this.

    I also had the Dragon Walker as a kid. It looked cool and was fun to play with. Of course, the motor didn't last long.

    I always thought is was funny that the most practical variant of He-Man (Battle Armor) was riding the most impractical of vehicles in the box art.

    A Classics version of the Dragon Walker would be great, but there are some other vehicles I would rather see Classics versions of first, like the Bashasaurus and the Land Shark.

    I'm all for the Dragon Walker, I'd just like to see a few more evil vehicles first to even the odds!
    Hey Matty, Snake Mountain rocks! Please don't downsize it!

    The Dragon Walker is one of the few vehicles I could live without.

    I had it as a child and never really liked it even back then. It just made no sense to even have a vehicle like that. The whole concept IMO was rather stupid.

    There are so many better vehicles in this line that I would rather have first.

    Yeah, that's the one strike against it here. What made the vehicle so cool was the completely new way in which it operated; never seen anything before or since that moves the same way. It would have to be motorized, and that would likely price it out of what most folks would be willing to pay.

    One of my final vintage toys I had bought for me as a kid, Dragon Walker was a great toy. He looks terrific and the colours and Dragon's head always stood out to me (as well as the awesome boxart). So yes, definitely down for a Dragon Walker in MOTUC-CC

    The coolest point with vehicles to me, whether they be evil or good, is the
    animal pattern of them all without exception (yeah Wind Raider included if one
    look closely).Which in a sense, keep filling the all-inclusive field of
    organic/mechanical creatures yet to be done (Mantisaur, Spydor, Stridor etc..)
    a detail of course, but this is what Motu is about for me; the
    widest variety of many things per square meter.

    The vintage vehicle head was very cool at least. I feel like it makes more sense as a primitive and ancient vehicle from King Grayskull's time rather than something alongside the wind raider and battle ram. It reminds me of the Dungeons and Dragons Fortress of Fangs playset which I didn't own either but always wanted from the toy section of my parents' catalogs.

    I'll take one, right after a MOTUC Land Shark.
