  • Woud anyone like to see a Road Ripper for MOTUC?

    I almost forgot about this little vehicle. I had it when I was a kid and kinda liked it.

    I'd love a Road Ripper, especially if it were to come with a rip cord and the a working action feature.
    It may not be my number one fave as far as what I'd like to see next, but it's definitely on my short list!

      The Road Ripper is awesome. Was my favorite as a kid.

        Road Ripper would be cool. Most Road Rippers were green, but it was released in a few countries in blue too. Might be good to release it in both colors.

          Top Toys paid Mattel for the rights to make the toys, and also to use the "Masters of the Universe" name on their toy packaging. So it isn't a bootleg as they did have the rights to make it. There would be no issue with Mattel ever making blue road rippers.

          Well it only makes sense that they make it then because it is really easy to sell double the volume by simply making 2 colors.

          That is what I was thinking. Especially when they don't have any vehicles for the bad guys. At least that would give people an option if it came in more than one colour. As well, looking at that Road Ripper, it would be easy to give it a snap-on "second head" to alter its appearance for the bad guys. Like a dragon head, or something. Certainly another way to boost sales.

        I like the RR, but I'd prefer to see Talon Fighter and Roton first.

          If they did it, I would want them to add some kind of handlebars to it.

            YES I want a Road Ripper. And put me down for at least 2 of them. In fact give me a damn MOTU vehicle subscription. Even if it's only like 3-4 vehicles a year. Make it & we'll buy it. I just think the WR & Jet Sled are some of the best pieces in the Classics line.

                From the small vehicles, the Road Ripper is my favorite. A MOTUC version however should have a few updates. A handle or steering wheel, for starters. And weapons.

                    I'll take it, but I think there is a bunch of vehicles that have a little more importance to be made first.

                      AWESOME PIC, first time I have seen a blue one. I know that there was green and a different shade of green in another country in South America. Was there ever a red one made?

                      Road Ripper is cool - still have my original MOTY one. I prefer more aircraft at this point or Dinosaurs (techno-Virus infected of course).

                        The purple Road Ripper that that guy made and auctioned at the Con looked great.

                          Looks like a classics figure fits just fine in it too... now I'm thinking about getting a vintage one and painting it up.

                          That Road Ripper is a custom that was modelled in a CAD program and 3D printed. It has a slightly longer front than the classic toy. The artist made some green versions of this Road Ripper as well.

                          this guy still making it? How much for it - at least $100 I assume.

                        Duh! Yes, I want a Road Ripper!! It's small enough that it should be one of the cheaper vehicles to produce, and it won't take up much real estate on our toy shelves. I doubt they'd make them in different colors, but if they did, I might get one of each (not excited enough to buy multiples and paint them, but I'd take any variants they'll give us).

                        Yes, it would be nice to have one that He-Man doesn't have to steer with his penis.

                          Not sure how they would give it handles or a steering wheel without it looking awkward, unless they moved the bird head back slightly towards the figure. Maybe they could give it side handle bars, similar to the old school James Bond jet back

                          If prefer nearly all the other vehicles but looking at it now it is small enough and basic enough that it may be one of the more likely to be made.

                              I'm not sure I'd want a Road Ripper. It's not as iconic as the Wind Raider, or as fun as the Land Shark. We do need to get the Land Shark and the back half of the Battle Ram first before we even think about the Road Ripper.

                                Each vehicle is a highlight for the line, but first I'd like to see some evil ride.

                                  I'd love to see a Road Ripper for sure! Only if it works like the original though.

                                    Nice thing about the road ripper is the design of its face recalls the Battle Ram, including some of the stickers

                                      Mattel can always reuse the molds of most of the vehicles and reintroduce them with different color schemes and paint applications for different factions and characters. That purple Road-Ripper for example could be easily used for Skeletor's faction, the same goes for the Battle-Ram, the Wind-Raider and even the Talon-Fighter.

                                        They could, and some fans will call it a cheap reprint don't give them too many ideas... This could end up as the chase figure... In Mattel's system, of course
