They would've been more well-received with the people who already wanted them, but to average MOTUC buyers (action figure collectors in general) I don't think they would've won many, if any, converts.
Saying the Star Sisters sold better than the Wind Raider isn't remotely fair, since the SS were in the sub and the WR was not. Also, do we REALLY have to start this Star Sister stuff again? Many people don't like them. Many people don't like Snout Spout (and I really like Snout Spout). Let's move on.
My seller/trader/buyer feedback:
MOTUC Most Wanted: Skeletor's Robot Knights, Two-Bad, Horde Troopers, Modulok, Sssqueeze, Tung Lashor, Stridor, Night Stalker, the Battle Ram, and a true, alternate head for Wun-Dar (since he's a "different" character)!
Just a little over 3 days now Can't wait to see some new MOTU product and hopefully some carded samples of Snake Face, Octavia, King He-man, and Karatti.
Seeing as we're getting the other pilots as "The Fighting Foe Men" three pack, I would still like to see him get made...and I think it makes him more likely to get made. I'm pretty sure he's the only pilot missing, right?
Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

But since the wind rider did not sell as good as they expected IMO I don't think the majority of fans are going to accept a pilot for a vehicle they don't have. Unless it is the coolest figure on earth
Agree on the dead horse. I get irritated when people actually take up for these figures, so I can understand not wanting to hear the reverse.
