    WOW ! This vehicle is BEAUTIFUL !

    Plus, it seems to be sturdy ? Awesome !

    I thought I'd be disappointed with the Wind Raider... Actually, I'm more enthused than what thought I'd be ! I'm strangely more excited about the WIndraider than about Swiftwind (and I thought it would have been the contrary). Total surprise on this one !

    Just ONE very important question, Pixel Dan : THE WINGS.

    The vintage Windraider was SO fragile that it is very hard to find one that still has both wings intact...

    What do you have to say about the new Windraider's wings ? Do they seem as fragile as the vintage Windraider's wings ?

    I REALLY need an answer to this question.


    Other than this, the vehicle is splendid, and the box is a real piece of art ! MOC collectors will be delighted with this one !

    Could it be that the next vehicle could be the Roton ?

    And does the look of Castle Grayskull on the box match what Mattel plans for the Grayskull playset ? Hmmmmm...

    By the way : can you have Leech inside the Windraider too ? I just had to ask, because he's bigger and his feet (discs) take a lot of room...

    Great preview ! I'd like to buy the Windraider (the display base is absolutely wonderful, I must say !). I hope to be able to save enough money to get it in December...

    I'm jealous. She's a beauty Dan, I can't wait to get my hands on one.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    Going to make a prediction and say the wings are not as fragile as Vintage Wind Raider's.

    Swift Wind + Wind Raider = 4 Horsemen perfection...in back to back months!

    I never had a vintage Wind Raider for some reason. Dunno why exactly. But I absolutely love this thing. The details are so amazing. Much better than lousy stickers that peel off and fade.

    I wish I could afford like 10 of them. I'd glue all their flight stands to a rotating wheel and make a MOTU-themed amusement park for my figures. TAKE A RIDE ON THE WIND RAIDER TILT A WHIRLLLLL!!

    Oh man this thing is so amazing. Just jaw-dropping. December seems so far away! But it's going to be amazing to have. I just can't believe what it looks like compared to the old one. I don't own any vintage MOTU toys... so this looks very much like what I imagined the Wind Raider to look like in my head (versus the reality of it... I never even owned one as a kid though I always wanted to!)

    Hot Damn the Wind Raider looks awesome, thanks for the review Dan. December on Matty could be crazy, with Wind Raider and BG Evil Lyn. I'll cry if I can't get these two.

    The Wind Raider amazing. I saw it in person at SDCC and can't wait for it to be out.

    Thanks for the review Dan. Your video convinced me that I should get 2 of these.

    I should get a second one.I would like to add some nice burn marks for a nice used look.
    The skull could use some shading too.

    The Windraider will cost $45,00 (+ shipping costs) on Matty. This has been said officially a while ago.

    Okay. That is officially the most awesome hunk of plastic on the freaking planet.

    I'm probably gonna wind up getting four of them.

    I absolutely cannot freaking WAIT to see more classic vehicles done like this.

    You can't tell me Mattel's gonna let that awesome 4H Battle Ram sculpt go to waste, and I don't think they put Roton on the box for the heck of it... BRING EM ON!!
