    Battle Ram Chariot

    Has it been discussed on why the mailer box for Wind Raider says Battle Ram Chariot?
    Good Journey

    Trademark purposes. They do that all the time with the white mailers.
    If you have a Queen Marlena cardback to sell, please let me know.

    Really? I don't have a lot of MOTUC, so I haven't seen weirdness of this type. What are some other examples of this type of thing?

    We've already seen the 4H sculpt, so we know it's coming at some point down the line. (I hope!)

    All of my white mailers either have no name or the name only of the product inside, for instance my Battle Cat mailer doesn't say Swift Wind underneath...so I don't see what you're saying

    They have to use the name in print to contuine the TM or rsik losing it ala the Fisto sitution; lso they can print the name on the mailier instead of producing it to keep the TM.
    Good Journey!

    Yes, this. We did see stuff like this once or twice before...I forget the specific examples though.

    Offhand, I also can't remember which ones - but there have been at least two white mailers with extra names/info printed on them.

    Instead of the phrase "all the time", perhaps I should have said "sometimes". But, anyway.....yeah, it's a way for them to keep trademarks active.

    This makes me happy; I'm glad Mattel's thinking ahead (though this particular move does seem weird to the casual observer), but now I'm very curious to hear what other TM saves like this they pulled. If anyone can remember them, please post!

    Oh you must be referring to the battle ram..

    There are a few. Leech's box says Despondos for example.

    My Battle Cat mailer reads "Battle for Eternia® Battle Cat™". So does the one in the .org's toy photo gallery. http://www.he-man.org/collecting/pac...265&image=8508
    Still remembers we paid excessive shipping on Battleground Teela. Is confident Matty will resolve the issue and make it right for us.

    I'd guess that the Battle for Eternia tag line might be something they'd use for a movie or a video game perhaps?

    Battle Ram Chariot...A very dark & mysterious vehicle. One of the best if not the best of the 20X vehicles. Ummm, yes I'll take one please.

    Oh, you're right - my apologies. I had forgotten about them being totally separate vehicles. It would have been nice if Mattel came up with a more distinctive name for the chariot.
