    BINGO! I was just going to say that.

    About the size, I think they should make it big enough to fit THREE characters inside it! Sorry to all you guys that want accurate sizes, but I do not want a 7 foot tall Megator or Tytus either.

    I want them ALLL...but it with 99% certainty be the Roton.
    It's on the wind raider box art, and will be easy to produce for "cheap"

    The Collector is an easy pass for me.

    Just because the Roton is on the WR box art doesn't necessarily mean that it'll be the next vehicle - if at all. But each to their own i guess.

    If and when there is a next vehicle, i hope the Roton isn't it.

    I would want Roton and Spydor first but YES bring on the Collector anytime. I'd buy it in a heartbeat!

    The Wind Raider was the perfect choice for the 1st vehicle. But, I'm ready for The Collector. Hopefully WR does well & they soon will add vehicles in the subscription.

    Okay, trying to figure out just how big the Collector would be, if it were the minimum size to be in-scale (bearing in mind Filmation were never entirely consistent about this - notably, the exterior door on the side changed size from shot-to-shot.

    That leaves you with something like this:
    1) One deck (some of the exterior shots make it look like two, but I file that under "inconsistency" - there's no sign of that inside)
    2) MotUC figures would need to be able to stand up inside
    3) Skeletor's throne would need to be able to move back and forth to a certain extent on the track (not only is it visibly not always in the same place, but you can see the track itself on the grab with Man-E-Monster in the tube).
    4) The yellow piece on the front isn't a window and so doesn't need to dictate any heights - the ship uses a viewscreen, Star Trek (pre-2009 movie)-style.
    5) Needs to be wide enough for at least four figures to stand side-by-side inside, so that their wrists touch, in it (sometimes we see more, but MotUC figures' posture would limit that).
    6) Between 1.5-2x as long as wide (sometimes shown longer, but, again, minimising).

    How big would all that make it, allowing for exterior features such as the domed roof, the base and the claws which protrude from the side/to the front? 10"×18"x30"?

    The Collector would be an awesome addition for sure, however there are many other vehicles that are more budget friendly to be made first...

    My wishlist:

    1. Roton
    2. Attack Track (or however it's spelled); and
    3. that chariot Skelly had in 200X. Not (a big fan of 200X vehicles except that and Terrordactyl.)


    Psyched for Wind Raider, of course.

    PS: Anyone have/know where there's a scan of a Collector model sheet like the AT one above? Surely there was one...

    Yeah! Now that Filmation rights are obtained, the Collector would be FREAKING GREAT to add to our MOTUC's collection!! This was the most iconic vehicle that Skeletor used in the series and look so cool. It would be pretty big, but they would not have to make it to scale. Maybe just big enough to fit a couple of the evil warriors

    Another interior shot I found on Busta Toons' Blog, facing rearward, featuring a slightly tweaked interior with four smaller seats in front of Skeletor's (on-tracks, as I noted) big throne:

    That would be the first ever purely Filmation inspired vehicle in toy form, wouldn't it?

    And it wouldn't have to be any bigger than the Wind Radier; a single seater with the Filmation design and an opening cockpit would be fine by me.

    I support a collector, used to hope to see it every year in the vintage line.

    I don't need it to be bigger than a one person craft though. well not true, it's design would make for a very small one person craft you can easily fit 3 figures in a windraider sized collector.

    It wouldn't be purely Filmation-inspired then, would it? If you want a Wind Raider-sized vehicle, the Basher's your craft.

    The Collector, OTOH, is a playset waiting to happen - and more plausible than Grayskull at between a third and a quarter of the size - you even have yer gimmicks (clear tube to hold Man-E-Faces, sliding throne, etc) built in!

    The collector would be awesome - but man I would need to put an addition on the house to hold vehicles if they scale them up like that. I would suggest they make the Collector to the scale of the new Wind Raider. Maybe a two-seater, I mean you can't have the Collector without Beast-man and Skeletor sitting side-by-side!
