I'm sorely tempted to pick up a MOTUC Wind Raider during the SDCC's Most Wanted sale. Does anybody here have one? If so, do you think it's worth the cost?

There are pretty good reviews of it at AF Times & MWCToys, both of which kinda tempted me to buy one the first time around. But at the end of the day, I just don't have the space for it; and none of my MOTUC figures are screaming for me to buy them one (metaphorically speaking, of course.)

if you are a MOTU fan, you must own this, its amazing!

If you are just a fan of toys, you should really consider it. Its a very nice piece and its huge!

I'm a casual MOTU fan, but am definitely a fan of toys :-) Plus I think it would make an awesome centerpiece to my small MOTUC display. I was mostly wondering how poseable it is on the flight stand. From the MWC review, it looks like it's pretty poseable.

It's a fabulous vehicle. Highly detailed, nice paint, great action feature. Even if you don't have a nostalgic tug, it's worth getting. It's that good.

If this video doesn't sell you on it, then you probably shouldn't order it...

See, now I'm partial to a nostalgic tug every now and then, and when I have one I tend to think of that girl from High School I could never get a date with! :oops: (Sorry, but it made me laugh when I read your post)

But as cool as the Wind Raider looks, I just don't have room to display vehicles with my MOTUC.

Joe, this is coming from someone who has no nostaglic attachment to the Wind Raider as I despised the vintage toys (loved the 'toon, hated the toys... of course I was a bit too old for the target demographic...) -- this is a great toy. I'm not even a "vehicle person" and I think this thing is great. I'd even like to see Mattel and the Horsemen do a few more --emphasis on "few", these things do take up a lot of space.
