    Who will pilot your Wind Raider?

    So, now that we know this year's vehicle is the Wind Raider, I'm wondering who other fans will be putting in the pilot seat.

    Personally, I'm torn between TRU He-Man (who has no other home on the shelf right now) and one of the Palace Guards to make space in the "throne room shelf", where I have 6 guards, the King, the Queen, the Prince, the Princess and Orko. My "younger" MAA without mustache is another possibility, but I kind of like having all my "recent history" (Kronis, Keldor, young MAA, Captain Glenn when she arrives) figures on equal ground, so to speak.

    How about the rest of you out there?

    Icarius is a pilot, and he comes out the same month as the Wind Raider, so I plan on using him.

    I was thinking a Palace Guard, but since i've only got the 2 I'd rather have them together.

    I'm thinking TRU He-Man now that you mention it, with regular or BA on Battle Cat. I assume I'll eventually have 12 He-Men for every beast/vehicle released I may start putting them on G.I.Joe vehicles and packing them in the kids' lunches.

    If a Windraider Pilot ever arrives, my OCD will force him into the pilot seat, of course.

    Definately one of my palace guards.
    To me it would feel like a waste using any "real" characters just to display a vehicle (Fisto and Stridor being one exeption). They look a lot better being posed on their own.
    So I think using one of the "faceless" guards is a good way to display the Wind Raider.

    Hopefully you are flexible on this because it looks like Icarius might not be able to fully sit down to fit in the wind raider.

    Probably one of the extra Palace Guards to make room on that shelf. My bigger question is where am I going to put the Wind Raider!

    More than likely, Man-At-Arms, but I'll switch him out with a palace guard or He-man once in a while.

    I'm leaning toward Prince Adam for display purposes. That is subject to change, however.

    Well, Lt. Spector was piloting him at SDCC. Works for me.

    Wait... he'll do it until the Wind Raider Pilot gets made.
    I love an all inclusive canon!

    No-one as I'm not getting it for budgetary reasons (November items), but if I was to get it, then it would probably be piloted by Battleground Teela.

    That's a great idea! I wasn't sure who I was going to throw in there, but that would work perfectly - particularly as I was going to display him without his jetpack and arm launcher anyway.

    Why do you say that? I hadn't noticed anything that would hinder articulation. Am I missing something?
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    Man-At-Arms.

    I liked that in Pre-Filmation, Man-At-Arms had a little competition with He-Man in Battle in the Clouds. Man-At-Arms pitted his Wind Raider against He-Man and his Battle Ram.

    I am working on a custom Wind Raider pilot. I hope to have it done by the time the Wind Raider is available.

    I have 10 palace guards so I can spare two from the throne room for the wind raiders. Since they match the colors it just seems like they are made for them. And as for the actual pilot, is there a difference in appearance between them and the palace guards? Where is this shown?
