OK ... so we have our confirmation of who Goldenrod and Snarrrlll are from page 2-3 spread in the mini ... but TG did not clarify who the mushy looking Horde warrior is that is standing behind Dragstor's right shoulder (next to the Horde Troopers). I thought this was Snow Thief but apparently not.
Grayskull needs its Cardboard Spacesuit MOTUCized
Voice your support in the Cardboard Spacesuit/Robot thread:
The smaller vehicles are the Road Ripper and the Laser Bolt, but even they are large and no more complicated than the Battle Ram.

The bottom line here is that - - Mattel are NOT making more vehicles - although they could potentially visit smaller vehicles like you have listed. And yes, maybe they could be classed as accessories, (although if I were more inclinded to be stubborn I would argue that the Jet Sled in particular was for sure a vehicle) but again, we need to stop nitpicking and face facts. We asked them why they wouldn't and they gave us explanations. We can go around in circles about the decision but the decision has been made.
Sure, I for one would love a Battle Ram - but I can accept that we are not getting one (unless he is going to surprise us at SDCC that is)
I'm a FIRM believer that nearly EVERYTHING fits into MOTU. Once you add robot elephents, cowboys and ninjas in a line... everything is fair game.
The names for this line have ALWAYS been ridiculous and simplistic... Fang-or is no less worthy of a name then Rattlor.
However, cheap repaints and charcters that do the same thing as two or three OTHER charcters already in the line? THAT is something worth being annoyed about. I'd rather have a dozen spectors or Laser-lots then YETANOTHER SNAKEMAN... who does the same thing as the REST of the snakemen....
I'd guess we'll see a Sky Sled released at some point.
"and we did not sell enough Windraiders at full price and quickly enough to justify any more vehicles at this time. Even with a preorder."
I agree with the person who posted this question. For the longest time (prior to the sell through of course) Scott's refrain was "if you want to see more vehicles buy those Windraider's" and now that it's finally happened there is no 'gold' at the end of that rainbow. Total disconcerting BS, Scott and you should literally be ashamed of yourself. At least have the cajones to say, once the WR sells out we'll still not be able to make another vehicle, but we really need to sell through what we have so that we can make other stuff. Some measure of hope (that's real) is better than nothing.
