    Battle ram or wind raider?

    If you could go back in time and choose either the BR or the WR what would it be???
    I for one love the WR but man the BR would have been a mind blower.

    I owned both vehicles as a kid so I like them equally.

    Nah, I'm good with the way the Wind Raider came out first.

    I'd be happy with either, but a little happier it's the Wind Raider.

    The Wind Raider. That vehicle is pure awesomeness to me.

    I voted Wind Raider....was my first vehicle when i was little so I have some sentimental feelings about it. Besides, it kicks some major butt.

    I voted Battle Ram. I had it as a kid and my brother had the wingless Wind Raider (he was very rough on all of his toys).

    Had them both as a kid and would like them both now... but as far as tooling and a sku; it should've been the Battle Ram since the Horsemen pretty much already had it done! I mean it's a little more obscure of a vehicle and it actually gave you 2 for 1 in 'play' factor as you can have the sled separate from the "buggie". It would've sold out faster than the Wind Raider as it allowed more characters to function with it and I believe that would've proved to be a good selling point, though I would speculate and say that it probably would've been more than $50...

    Well I guess we'd have a second vehicle, if they released Battle Ram instead of Wind Raider first....

    I mean it's a small cross section, but I'm willing to bet if more people voted, we'd see the ratio be around the same.

    Battle Ram was sculpted, they should have just did that first, I'd have bought a Battle Ram, the WR was an easy pass for me.

    Battle Ram is my choice by far. It is the epitome of the archaic combined with future technology and that's what motu means to me.

    I'd choose the Battle Ram in a heartbeat. It's the vehicle I want most. I have so many fond childhood memories of that vehicle. The Wind Raider is certainly a great update of the vintage vehicle. I guess I just never cared too much for the original. It's a boat with wheels and wings. I bought the Wind Raider mainly because it was prominently featured in the Filmation cartoon and I was hoping we'd get a Battle Ram to display next to it. I'm also hoping for the Talon Fighter with Point Dread as well.

    Battle Ram over every vehicle. That was my favorite as a kid and I had several of them. I never owned a Wind Raider as a kid, but my then best friend and his two brothers each had one.

    Battle Ram would have been the first vehicle for me, since it could have gotten more re-use out of the mold by simply selling the Sky Sled component separately.

    I also never had that much emotional attachment to the Wind Raider, it just wasn't cool enough of a vehicle for my taste when growing up.

    I'm glad the Wind Raider was released first.

    I really don't care much for the Battle Ram. I'm more interested in the Sky Sled it comes with than the Battle Ram itself.

    What I want more than any other vehicle is the Land Shark!!

    I love my Windraider. I'll happily take a BR though!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Battle Ram, no contest! Wind Raider's cute, I own one, but now that this ridiculous Castle thing is moving forward, I can't see a reason to overlook the first vehicle He-Man is given by the Goddess!

    Battle Ram. I remember when I got for my birthday as a kid, and shooting ash trays in Burger King with the missiles.

    Still love the Wind Raider though. I think it's the finest MotUC product yet.
