    Are we certain his job function is actually to pilot the Wind Raider?

    Lots of characters showed up on box art for vehicles. That's not what defined them. Why's this guy get a bum rap, just 'cause he never got released?

    If I had one, the Upper Torso of the Goddess...
    Seriously though, I'll probably go with MAA.

    The smartest thing would be to put in one of my TRU He-Man figs. But it would bug me that he's not the "real" He-Man.

    I don't really like Man At Arms that much. The Wind Raider is too awesome for him. But I can't get past the fact that it looks like his vehicle more than any other character.

    I kinda am thinking Teela but I don't want to waste one of my Teela's when there's so many cooler ways to pose her.

    If I had one more "real" He-Man, this would be easy.

    Palace Guard is not cool enough either for the awesome-ness of the Wind Raider....

    So I guess TRU He-Man for now.

    Sure wish they'd reissue He-Man. He'd pilot my WR for sure.

    Snake Man At Arms probably, with a Duncan Head. Or perhaps with a Guardsman Head. But that Body. Especially if it has Tech Parts (which I didnt want)

    My plan was to have "Vintage Toy" Man At Arms flying it with "Filmation" Man At Arms (that I would put together with ROyal Guard bits, Man At Arms bits, and/or Snake Man at arms bits) standing with the heroes.

    One way or another a Duncan Variant is going in that thing.

    Haven't given it any thought yet. Probably either a Palace Guard, or maybe BG Teela...hmmm...now I have to think about this LOL.

    I will probably end up putting Teela in there since I'm not a big fan of the lady figures and doing so will free up a spot on my figure shelf for a dude...

    I'll probably put Snake Man-At-Arms (with regular MAA's mustached head) inside of it.

    I really, really want the Wind Raider "pilot" already. I'm bummed that they didn't make him at the same time as the vehicle...

    I just watched that (my friend got it on Bluray) last night! I might have to repaint one of my Snake Man Gurads brown and name him Grig.

    Hello fellows-in-fandom!

    I'm having trouble finding a pilot for my Wind Raider who can sit in it long term and not emerge with a pop-tent. This has happened to both Adam and Adora (which is a bit disturbing).

    I'm giving Man-E-Faces a try right not and just don't have him in a full sitting position, even then I can see one of his legs may reshape his hip cover. I'm thinking Snout Spout might also be a good choice but I'm hesitant to move his trunk at all and his trunk hangs lower than his briefs so it would likely get in the way of his sitting. Tallstar was another option but without twisty thighs I couldn't get her hips in a good position and her crotch already hangs low, don't need it to be low and forward.

    I like Icarius and Sy-Klone with their backpacks too much to let them pilot and Bow...nah.

    So, what does everyone else do. No pilot, pick a pilot and then blow dry them flat again, found a good pilot or sitting position, or something else entirely?

    Thanks!

    I have no one in it long term...for exactly that reason: it warps the figures.

    Heh, I guess I'll have to wait for Rotar and then have him pilot my Wind Raider

    I currently have MAA piloting my Wind Raider. His colors match well and he was prone to fall off my display shelf all too often, so he was an easy pick to pilot the AMAZING vehicle. I truly hope we can get another vehicle next year!!!!!!!

    I understand the limitations on using unique tooling for these things, but if they are priced up a bit to cover that cost, they would still sell very well and Mattel would not take a loss on the project.

    My Wind Raider is actually piloted by the black palace guard that reminds me of Clamp Champ.

    I finally picked mine up today from the friend that ordered for me.

    I opened an extra Man-at-Arms that I've had (and was unable to sell) from the original release. Today, I opened him and HE is piloting the Wind Raider!!!


    Sweet freaking release! I LOVE this, the first vehicle in the line!

    Now, bring on the Battle Ram!

    The loin cloths or crotch pieces tend to take an odd shape after sitting a while.
