The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: General Vehicle Discussion Thread
« on: July 22, 2010, 09:33 AM »
Wasn't sure where else to stick this, so here goes.

I have seen a couple of pictures of a new SW Vehicle I have never heard of or seen before. I am hoping someone can help identify what this is and what line it will be released under:

Props to GH for the awesome photo, BTW. It looks like a hybrid of an AT-TE and AT-RT. Very cool. It appears to be in the general vehicle section though, with no packaging display, so not sure where/when this would be coming out.

Thanks in advance for any info!

GH had some good shots up of this pack this morning. It looks totally sweet. The Paint Apps on the Red Dude alone are killer. (Sorry, no idea on which colors equate to ranks)

Love the jibba jabba...good points all around.

I'm not a fan of RC stuff at all, but scaling this to the 3.75" line and throwing in a Clone Trooper makes it a mandatory purchase as per the Completist Rulebook Section 23.  ;D

Still cannot figure out if the Clone Trooper is strictly a re-pack of something previously released. He looks a little different somehow...

Thanks a lot, I am psyched to see this as well. It was just in the corner of one of the RS pics, but I could not quite make out the details. Looking forward to some better angles tomorrow...

That Pre-Cyborg Grievous is bad-ass...do not recall that one. Thanks for the head's up!

Thanks, I figured I had it all mixed up in my head. Some of those EPs kinda blur together after awhile...

I still don't get why we're getting 1 less figure and we're paying $4 more in these sets, but I'm sure McMetal and others are happy.   :)

Yeah, I'm digging it. The whole price/value thing does not really play into it for me, but I agree it'd be nice to have more for the $$$.

Were there any pics of the ARC Troopers set that is reportedly part of this BP wave?

I don't even remember Commando Droids from that episode. What about Todo 360? Would have been a perfect home for him.

Hmmm, both are listed as exclusives - wonder with whom?

I like both and will certainly buy them, but I wish we could have gotten something better than 2 commando droids to go with Robonino.

Why does it say they both come with the "Bounty Hunter DVD"? Is that a generic thing or something episode specific?

Anyone blogging/posting photos from here?

I am hoping to follow the live G4 feed, but they probably won't have much on SW.

Yeah, thanks Pete, they do not appear to have him up on their website anywhere yet.

The Haunted was a bit disappointing, though.

Really? How so? Those guys usually destroy live, even with the old singer. You can't beat the Bjorler brothers for modern thrash guitar gymnastics.   :)

Lamb of God is from right here in Richmond. I used to see those guys all over town, when I still socialized. Liked 'em better as Burn the Priest. That split with Zed is epic!

Those were leaked photos I thought, this is direct from Marvel

I definitely like the new costume, but would be nice if they found a way to incorporate the little white wings.  Maybe it would look too hokey outside of a comic.

Then they should have picked someone else whose costume they wouldn't have to screw with. I am SO SICK of these stupid movies with their revisionist history trying to re-write source material which was WAY, WAY better and more imaginative than anything these Hollywood hacks could ever have devised.

Seriously, they're freaking tiny white wings. What's the big deal?

I'm still waiting for a comic book movie that's 100% faithful to the source material. Watchmen came close but he ruined it with that stupid, schlocky made-up ending.  >:(

Rant over, comics rule!

doesn't sw2010 still work?

Not sure, I used that on an order a month or two back, but it's worth a try.

These are also back in stock on TRU.com but I don't trust their ability to get the packages to me in mint condition. The last stuff I got was in pretty poor shape.
