    The Official Wind Raider Thread

    ***I searched and searched, but could not find any threads devoted to the upcoming Wind Raider. So, if one already exists I apologize. I could not find one.

    With that said....What are your thoughts and feelings towards the first vehicle set to go on sale in October? How about that box art? What about the $40.00 price? Please Discuss.....
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    The box art is mind-blowing. I love it.

    $40 seems like a very good deal, especially when you compare the level of detail & function to the giants.

    Looking forward to doing some flying. And crashing!

    I can't find where it has been confirmed that it will be $40...only rumored. Know where I can find it?

    Never do that with me...lol I have seen it discussed in several places, but never seen where ToyGuru confirmed it...so I assume $40 is correct

    YES! Crashing rules! I have always loved acting out crashes with my vehicle toys, and you know I will be crashing my Windraider!

    I'm so very tickled that we Re getting this toy so soon. I would love to get as many vehicles as possible, but I think Mattel nailed it in choosing the first.
    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

    The wind raider was my favorite vehicle as a kid, and still is. I still have the same wind raider I had when I was 5 in my room.

    I can't wait to get the classics version. I'm thinking of buying two.

    The Classics version is soo awesome. I'll be highly disappointed if that is the only vehicle made.

    i wish they had some way of showing the vehicle for MOC collectors; even if the wings are just positioned parallel to the vehicle, it would have been preferable. otherwise it is all great; art is sweet as.

    I am absolutely giddy for the arrival of this, it is such an amazing piece. I am going to have to go in for three of them though, He-Man, MAA and Teela all need their own.

    Wow, I love seeing that picture!

    So: is the flight stand removeable? & does the "anchor" function?

    I have my old one too but the wings are missing - which is really odd! I never mistreated my old toys!

    not sure which way the handle bars on new Wind Raider should go at 4Horsemen website they are inside the cockpit, but at SDCC and box art, they located outside the vechicle.

    Variant again, Mattel ??

    The way they were at SDCC were wrong. Propably they provided a photo to the artist, that also had them the wrong way, so he drew them accordingly.

    I wouldn't mind getting a jpg of that box art. It would make nice wallpaper on my PC.

    One of the major reasons why I was into MOTU when I was a kid is because of the inclusion of vehicles and Playsets, and now it's time for the MOTUC line to gain back that awesome flair.
    The Wind-Raider is absolutely one the most iconic vehicles out there and it's great to see it being released soon, hoping for more vehicles to follow its path. I myself will try to buy at least three...

    Wind Raider Missing pieces?

    What is everyone talking about? Guns? Missiles? My Wind Raider had a stand, wings, tail(wing), and an attached anchor-like projectile. Am I missing something

    There should be two small silver gun barrels sticking out of the Wind Raider's lower prow. If yours are missing there will be two holes instead.
