    Wind Raider coming back during SDCC 2012!

    In Toyguru's recent collectors night report at New York Toy Fair he said the Wind Raider will be returning. He said during SDCC 2012, they will try to sell another batch of them on Matty Collector. This is everyones chance to convince management that vehicles can sell and can justify one for 2013. I know it's not 100% confirmed yet but it's a start. Should we have a Wind Raider day?

    Go to 32:30 to hear it from Toy Guru

    This sounds like good news , but if they have another batch to sell why didnt the replace all the screwed up units? Im sure this announcement will make some people who ended up with no replacements rather irked

    In the video it sounds like they are going to be producing more, not selling stock that is piled up somewhere. That's how I understood it, anyway.

    I'll buy the crap out of a Wind Raider when it isn't 10 days before Christmas.
    Sadly, you can't divorce emotion from a toyline built on nostalgia.

    Not going on sale right before Christmas is a good thing for sure. In the video Scott mentioned during SDCC, I assume he mean on MattyCollector in July not at the convention itself. I think this could be a double edged sword if it does come out the week of SDCC. SDCC generates a good deal of buzz for MOTUC which will help sales, but its also a time when a good number of collectors are spending money on SDCC/Exclusives. Collectors save in advance for SDCC and the expense that it is with travel, lodging, tickets, and exclusive. So by adding another expensive item to the mix might back fire again. I'm not trying to be negative, I hope the WR does great so we can see more vehicles in MOTUC. This may not be an issue as there is not concrete sale date, just something I thing Mattel needs to think about.

    AWESOME! I'm up for ANYTHING that gets us The Battle Ram!!!!!!!

    I always wanna support the .org and I hope everyone wears their site shirts to the Mattypalooza panel like last year, but mabye they can make up an iron-on of a pic of The Four Horsemen's prototype to put on the back--or even on the front under the .org logo! OH! Or maybe a small one for the sleeve!

    As for people who needed replacements, maybe when they get this stock of Wind Raiders in they'll do like they are now for Green Goddess; even though it's way past 30 days, you could exchange it for a replacement (yeah I know it's not exactly like Green Goddess since those are for refunds).

    I'll definitely buy another Wind Raider come summer to help support the cause. It's an amazing piece!! I agree that the timing of it's release was bad! Everyone's broke a week before Christmas!

    BTW, Toyguru (my lord and savior and/or favorite real life villain, you decide!) is hilarious in this video. I lol'd several times.

    Great! What appeared to be the dismissal of future vehicles because of less profit made my stomach sour. I wanted to buy WR but wiffed. Good idea Toy Guru! Looking forward to a possible He Man with accessories-vintage, Alcala, & Texeira heads.

    I'm very happy for those of you that want vehicles in MOTUC. It sounds like an excellent opportunity. I'm 100% okay with vehicles as long as they are not part of the subscription. I just don't have the space. 1 vehicle per year outside the sub would be great, in my opinion. I would for sure pick up some.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    I also would LOVE a Battle Ram!

    I think it's also cool that the Wind raider will be getting re-released because I wasn't collecting the line at the time and would love to get one How much were they when they were put out the first time?

    If Mattel can have pre-orders for the Hoverboard, then they should do the same with vehicles if they're afraid about their bottom line.
    Proud supporter of the Snake Men.

    Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Eldor, Spinnerella, Mermista, Peekablue, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Battle Ram, Great Black Wizard.
    Most Wanted for Filmation Sub: Madame Razz with Broom, Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder.

    No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!

    A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!

    Why not return* a defective one now for a refund (if that is all DR is doing right now), then buy a new one when they go on sale again? At least that way you're not past the 30 day mark.


    *as long as they're paying the return shipping....

    I already got mine and it took 36 days to arrive, I will not be buying any more of them.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Remember though that Mattel can't do pre-orde...*Waits for damage control by them as to why they can all of a sudden*.

    I would rather see Horde Armor He-Man. Oo-Lar would make a better bonus figure.
