    Vehicle Pre-Orders, are you interested?

    So apparently (I'm going by anecdotal evidence here) Scott said that if they were to do vehicles they would do it pre-order style a la the Back the the Future hoverboard.

    How do you feel about this? I like the idea a lot myself, maybe even give us a 3 vehicle choice to vote on before doing the pre-order to gauge where people's interests lie?

    It's not a bad idea, probably would be a good way to go.

    Although I find myself wanting a Castle Grayskull more and more these days
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    Space is really starting to become an issue for me. With my Star Wars Vehicles collection almost complete (really only need ESB Slave-1 which I think is coming out around Christmas this year) I am running out of room for larger stuff. That said I would be down for the Battle Ram that was shown and I would definately want a Talon Fighter (with Point Dread). A Roton and an Attack Trak could peak some interest as well just to have the all the FFM vehicles, more interest if they ever do a Wind Raider pilot. And while I have fond memories of getting the like of the Land Shark, Bashasaurus, Road Ripper, and Dragon Walker on my birthday or Christmas I am not sure the nostalia for those would equal a purchase due to space limitations.

    Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. They should have just done it this way from the beginning for high priced items.

    Yep!

    I'm a tradional cherry picker, and I whole heartedly support this idea. If the vehicle is awesome, I want one... If I have no attachment to it, I'd pass.

    Battle Ram or Attack Trak??? I'd be All over that. In a heartbeat. I LOVE those vehicles. Talon Fighter? I've ALWAYS wanted that one... only had the model and it didn't hook to grayskull so a bit of a disappointment... Roton? Meh... Always disliked that one.. Any of the 200x vehicles? easy pass...

    I'm all for presales to guage the interest in expensive things like this..

    MOTU has always been a bit like Star wars and GiJoe for me... the vehicles were half the fun. Without a solid vehicle support in the line... and with no castle... I REALLY can't call this the 'definitive' MOTU line :-/

    I personally love the idea! Let the power of the people decide whether to go into production on (AHEM) Battle Ram, for instance. I know Mattel probably took a huge chance on Wind Raider and it sucks that support wasn't there for that vehicle (as gorgeous as it is), but for future vehicles I'd be more than willing to throw my $50 bones into the kitty if it means we get some at all!

    I will sign up for anything that will get me more Vehicles

    I really think that this is the way to go, I would love a vehicle for the Evil Warriors first like the Roton, But that fact that the FHM have already sculpted the battle-ram that could be the start point. at least this way they would not go into production unless Mattel got enough interest and they would not have to blame us for them not selling

    I'd buy two of each vehicle as long as it's the vintage stuff from the first three waves of 80s MOTU.
    I'd buy a couple more Sky Sleds probably

    edit:
    oh yeah and Castle Grayskull of course (though I'll only be buying one and not two )
    Awesome sticker included!

    I'm only really interested in vehicles the figures can go inside as opposed to just perching on top - That's why I didn't care for any of the 200x stuff.

    A Talon Fighter would be cool though.

    I like this idea. I would probably buy them all. Battle Ram and Talon Fighter are the vehicles I would most like to see.

    For the Battle Ram, Talon Fighter and Roton, yes. Those 4 vehicles, plus the drivers, would make a great display and are *essential* for me.

    Attak-Trak, Dragon Walker, Skeletor's Chariot... would also be welcome, but are not as necessary.

    Extra Battle Ram sleds could be put up for sale after the tooling is paid for, and Mattel could make some decent bank on that.

    I think a preorder idea is great, that way they dont overproduce. Since Im now into the 2013 year sub I say give subscribers the chance for the votes. But that's me being greedy. Castle Grayskull should be a preorder to but I think that would get pricy.

    No interest in vehicles so a preorder would be perfect for me.
