    I know its probably bad to say but im just so tired of the wind raider. this may be the first origins item I skip out on. I just have so many versions at this point. rather they make other vehicles we have received since the original line. I mean we have megaconstrux, hotwheel, classics, original, and now another. just don't think I need it.

    While that may be true for you, but Origins is an all new line, and some people, even collectors don't have any wind raiders, and it's one of the classic vehicles.

    I'm really curious to see what they do with it. While the figures are mostly based on the vintage figures, bigger items have been more interpreted (esp Grayskull, Sky Sled).

    I looked at some pictures of the vintage wind raider and I just hope it's bigger.

    Well it's a small vehicle to begin with, but that picture is a bit deceptive of its size because He-Man isn't sitting properly in it. here is another pic where Mer-Man is sitting a little deeper:

    I preordered it. Im gonna love it. No hate. You cant have too many Wind Raiders. And to be able to have it in so many different lines is simply amazing.

    That 2nd pic with Mer-Man is a better reference.

    I really want to believe Mattel has the sense to improve the design/size for Origins. I love the Skysled and it works. But who am I kidding? This is a corporate toy company.

    Well, if they delivered the goods for the Sky Sled, what makes you so sure they'll drop the ball on the Wind Raider?

    Because Hasbro and Mattel can never be consistent. None of the mega-corps are.

    I don't know, Hasbro has been very consistent with the Transformers lime for the last 6 years or so.

    Let's just hope they keep sculpted details and/or add more of them on the new one...
    As much as I like how the new Sky Sled turned out in the Origins line, I still think the overall shape of the Classics is more menacing which was also based on the vintage Battle-Ram.

    ^^ This. They are also consistent with Star Wars Black.
    Mattel is mickey mouse in comparison.

    The Classics Wind Raider is my favorite MotU vehicle in any MotU line, ever.

    That said, I am curious about this Origins Wind Raider but I doubt I'll get it. I'd rather have the Origins Battle Ram

    I'm probably good for one of these. Even though the Classics version is impressive and could probably work fine, I'm kind of in love with the toyetic, fun aesthetic of this line too. I'm more excited about the Landshark, of course, and I am pumped for other vehicles (even those we saw in MOTUC like the Battle Ram, Talon Fighter, and Roton). I think my most anticipated and hoped for releases are Spydor, Bashasaurus, Dragon Walker, Attak Trak, Road Ripper, Laser Bolt, and (if you want to count them) Battle Bones and Mantisaur.
    MOTUC Most Wanted: Skeleteen, Prince Keldor, Captain Randor, The Great Black Wizard, Lady Slither, Spirit, Tuvar, Baddra, Cursed Marzo, Tug-O-War, Scrollos, Songster, Mini-Comics Spirit of Castle Grayskull, and for the love of the Sorceress and Julie Winston, ODIPHUS!!!
