    The Basher: Skeletor's Wind Raider

    Similar size to the Wind Raider, but with a pair of seats at the front and a great retractable battering ram in the front.



    Also, surprisingly enough, it apparently appeared in more episodes than the Collector, while being a more plausible size for Mattel to make:
    • "The Cosmic Comet"
    • "Disappearing Act"
    • "Evil-Lyn's Plot"
    • "Daimar the Demon"
    • "The Royal Cousin"
    • "Song of Celice"
    • "Ordeal in the Darklands"
    • "Prince Adam No More"
    • "Double Edged Sword"
    • "Teela's Trial"
    • "Dree Elle's Return"
    • "The Huntsman"
    • "The Rainbow Warrior"
    • "A Trip to Morainia"
    • "Three on a Dare"
    • "The Littlest Giant"
    • "A Bird in the Hand"
    • "No Job too Small"


    Vote Basher - you know it makes sense

    I much rather prefer to see the other Skeletor's ship from Filmation; the one that had a sort of skeleton face and 2 claws at the side.

    Nice!!!! Really has potential to convert in a toy (more than the Collector due to it's size and closed frame). It should be slightly bigger than the Wind Rider because is a two passenger vehicle. It could have a functional trunk with space for 1 Sky Sled.

    That's the Collector.

    Don't you mean Doom Buggy? [The silver good guys' version was the Sky Sled!]

    Good idea though, if it would fit.

    That's the Collector.
    Yeap, that one.



    I think It can be design for 1 figure only, covered with a sort of cockpit in the same way the new Voltron Lions can contain 1 figure inside.

    There's a thread for the Collector (which is a LOT bigger than the Basher, let alone a single-figure craft! It should be big enough for six, at least) already.

    Astro Train should be a lot bigger as well. As for making a Collector toy, I don't think it needs to be filmation spatially accurate. It could just be like the Talon Fighter. Which should probably be made first considering all of the great Alcala art.

    I think they could make relatively simple new vehicle with Skeletor's ram instead of the bird on the front. It could work with some extra work and good colour choices.

    I see no reason why not get some extra use out of the new mold, if people are interested.

    The Basher is my vote for the first evil warrior vehicle (followed closely by the Collector)!

    I loved the Basher! I loved the Collector too, but I agree it'd have to be incredibly large to be even close to scale. The Basher might have to shrink to seat only a pilot, but I think it'd still be awesome. I think I'd like it sooner than more complicated vehicles like the Frightfighter, or goofier vehicles like the Bashosaurus.

    Not interested in a flying shoebox, sorry. I'd rather see the Collector. Maybe the Collector could be made like the asteroid ship was made in NA.
