    So who is NOT buying the Wind Raider?

    TheFwoosh have just put up their First Look for the Wind Raider and I want to know who is not buying it.

    I am hoping there is quite a few of you who can't afford it or don't have the room for it because I want two and it sucks that I have to face the WSOD to get it

    Damn it looks so good but I thank you all who don't want one or can't afford one.

    It will be taken for the ass if I miss out in December

    Count me in for one of them. I don't know how or why anyone who collects the figures and beasts would not want that thing. It is AWESOME. Twenty times better than many figures.

    Only vehicle I'd consider is the purple shark thing. That was always my favorite one. I'm pretty sure I have the Wind Raider, but I don't have much memories of it.

    I'll be skipping the wind raider. Too many other things I want more. Gotta make cuts somewhere.

    When the possibility of vehicles was first raised I promised myself no vehicles unless they are "living" or "intelligent". So the cats I'm all for, Horses, Turbodactyl, etc. I'd also get Stridor and a Filmation Attack Trak because they have a sort of robotic intelligence.

    For me it's all about the characters. Vehicles and buildings and such I don't have really enough room to display. So unless the vehicle is also sort of a character it's an easy no for me.

    It saves me quite a bit of cash and space making that decision, but lord help me if they make a Battle Bones.

    I would really like to get the Wind Raider. I always wanted one for the vintage line. However because of cost and space, and especially it being at Christmas time, I PROBABLY will not be getting it. It is not a decision I will be making for sure until the last minute and knowing what my financial situation is at the time, butI will most likely have to unfortionately pass up.

    Don't get me wrong, I like vehicles and I even like the original Wind Raider. But I just don't feel the need to buy this one. With some of the things that were said by some of the people behind MOTUC in the last week or two, I decided to be really, really picky about what I purchase from this line from now on. If it doesn't absolutely knock my socks off, I'm not going to bother going through the unnecessary nightmare of trying to purchase it the day it goes on sale or waiting for it to show up on the secondary market.

    Actually the only figure I want that has been announced is Demo-Man. I'm sort of on the fence about Shadow Weaver.

    Display space is an issue,
    especially with vehicles and playsets
    but the Wind Raider is a must have for me!

    I'm pretty much making exceptions all the
    time for all of the most iconic large items.
    They are too cool to skip!

    The Wind Raider is totally awesome,
    I love the all the details and how everything is sculpted and painted
    vs decals.
    I couldn't understand why anyone would honestly want to skip the Wind Raider.

    So in six months we go from no vehicles to 3 flying things that I need to hang from the roof... Can't wait.
    We don't need no education...

    I love the Wind Raider - it looks awesome.

    But it arrives in December (bad timing) and I'm running out of space. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to pass.

    I can't wait for the wind raider, my only beef is that the handles are on the inside, covering a lot of the dials and buttons. Even the art shows them on the outside. I think it waisted most of the sculpting the 4H did for it. Don't get me wrong, still gonna buy, it looks amazing.

    It's the Wind Raider, people!!!!!

    I'm Definitely buying one. I might have bought two but with the price increase, even though it's only $5, I will just be buying one.

    I'm very excited for it because it wasn't released as part of the 200X line. So this remake is something for which I'm excited.

    And thanks for showering such great wishes upon fellow MOTU fans. Even Skeletor from A Christmas Special would have something better to say.

    OK seriously with the "taken for the ass" stuff it sounds stupid......don't we already have enough crap sayings floating around everywhere without making up new ones? It don't even make sense.

    I don't plan on buying one because I never had one, and I can't spend $45 on one thing right now...But I would love to have one, but chances are I never will because they will go for way too much later on Ebay, it won't be something I'll miss in my collection though if I can't eventually get one. I want the Attack Track more, because I actually had that.

    I don't think it was ever included in the sub
