I like these, and seeing as I missed them the first two times, I'm geeked.

Some updates from EE - looks like both the Hailfire Droid and AAT have spiffy new paintjobs!

Star Wars Hailfire Droid Vehicle

I've always thought the Hailfire Droid was a great looking vehicle - it would look great in amongst a Battle Droid vs Clone Trooper diorama.



They also have the Star Wars Darth Vader's Sith Starfighter Vehicle listed, but no pictures yet...

EE has put up a photoshop-ed image of the Sith Starfighter.

Damn.  If the real things looks as good as this, I'll be all over it.  Amazing how effective black and some grey tinting looks.  8)

I wonder if it will actually include the psudo-Astromech Droid ... it would be cool is they gave us different shape head droid in there like R5 or R4.

Holt Sweetness!
The Trade Tank actually looks menacing.  The Hailfire Droid smoke the CW release. and the Vader Starfigher looks slick.

Count me in for  2 - 2 -1! Bring them on! :D

A different R2 unit head would be cool.....

I just hope I can find these at retail - they look to be $10 more at EE.com.

Very nice repaints. 

How many ROTS starfighter releases off of the same mold will I have now?

Too many.

Vader's would make 6 - Anakin's yellow, Obi Wan's red, Anakin's green (that he took to Mustafar), Obi Wan's blue (that he took to Utapau), Mace's purple and Vader's black.

I think the Kit Fisto fighter will be based from the EIII fighter as well

(Anakin's Mustafar fighter was green)

Don't let Hasbro hear this, but I'd like to eventually get all 6/7 of them.  So far I only have 3, I still gotta get Anakin's green one (the exclusive one from TRU).   They'd look cool all displayed side by side.

There's also the matter of a rumored Saesee Tiin one as well.  Uggghhh.  I'm unwittingly building a fleet.

I'll definitly pick up the AAT. That new paint job looks snaa-zay. I wonder if it will include pack-in figures? A Battle Droid would be cool, but my dream pack-in would be a new Daultay Dofine:

I can dream, right?

Not each and everyone.  The top two rows of each battery fire.  The bottom two rows are deco.  The firing is spring loaded, touch me and see me fire.  I enjoy it.  You can sorta wave your hand over it like a jedi mind trick and suddenly you have 16 (I think) missles all over the place.

You are never alone when there's a clone.

I'm pretty pleased with these vehicle choices...  I'll pick them mostly all up as well...  The Hailfire's scale isn't exact but it's pretty close actually.  The AAT's the same way but it's much closer actually.  The Jedi Fighter looks fantastic in black though, I can't wait to see the final one...  I like the way the Droid vehicles look battle worn too and as if they've been on the front lines for years.

I wish Hasbro would've put a better foot forward and given us NEW $20 pricepoint vehicles though...  Like in particular I'd have liked to see the Corp. Alliance Droid Tank from the Kashyyyk Landings...  :(  Pack-in a poseable battledroid to ride it and it's a smash hit I think.  I'm surprised we didn't see more of the $15 line though myself...  BARCS, RT's, and Wookiee Copters sold really well this past year.

I think though, Hasbro's seeing that $20 or less = sales...  $30 = some sales, but some stagnation on the shelves...  $40+ = exclusives turf, and risky.

I'm really wishing I'd gotten the two TRU exclusive JSF's for Obi and Ani now. :(  I passed at the time, and now I want them both desperately.
