2006 Saga Assault Vehicles Line
« on: March 23, 2006, 04:13 PM »
New Rumors from Rebelscum:

Assault Vehicles
Due out around September, the Hailfire Droid and 'Droid Federation Tank' (presumably the AAT) will be back in the new packaging. It's still unknown if they're straight repacks or if they'll be repainted. Also be on the lookout for BOTH Darth Vader's Advanced TIE (shown at Toy Fair) and Darth Vader's Black Starfighter. Presumably a black repaint of the ROTS Jedi Starfighter.

Wonderful, I cannot get enough Trade Federation Tanks to blast gungans and the Hailfire Droid is one of the best vehicles ever done.

Good, good.  The vehicles are good news.  Rehashes, yes - but good choices.

Hmmm... more vehicle repacks.

Hailfire Droid and Droid Federation Tank (AAT) -  I don't have a problem with these being re-released.  It's been 3 years since the last release and that Hailfire Droid is pretty cool.

Darth Vader's Black Jedi Starfighter  - Yellow, Red, Green, Blue, Purple, and now Black?  Seriously?  I guess all we need now are Orange and Indigo and we'll have all the colors of the rainbow!   ::)

Gotta admit, a black starfighter has potential...they sure have beat those molds to death.

I can dig all of these.  The AAT Tank is really cool... I already have more than I need of it, but hell I might get one more. 

Hailfire - definitely a great choice.  I have one and could really use one more.

Vader Starfighter - I love this idea, and am 100% for it.

they need to redo the Target exclussive Tie with corrected wings (preferably with a more reasonable price point).  I totally missed them first time around and did not even see one.  I'd be all for that!

I might get the AAT, but will pass on the others. I'd be nice if the AAT included a pack-in figure, like a battle droid. Or a new ROTS Nute Gunray. That would be cool.

Awesome if true.  Both vehicles rock.  I have 5 ATTs but only one Hallfire.  I love it but those missles are really easy to fire by mistake  :P

More repacks, but I guess I like that they are keeping a "mid-size" vehicle assortment going, even if it is repacks/repaints.  I don't know if I'll pick any up or not...I don't have the AAT or Hailfire Droid, but I don't have a lot of room either, so we'll see.  I usually lean more towards OT vehicles at this point, and I'm saving room for the rumored Snowspeeder and AT-AT this year if we see them.  They might be getting a little crazy with the starfighter repaints, but to be honest, I'm somewhat interested in this black Vader version.  I might pick it up, we'll see.  I'm still on the fence about the Windu version, we'll see.  I just really like the ship itself, but I do have the Anakin (yellow) and Obi-Wan (red) versions, so I don't know how many I need.

Booya! 8)

The Hailfire is one of my top wanted items. I knew it would be rereleased eventually.

The AAT is an excellent rerelease as well, but I already have one and I dont need another.

Darth Vader's TIE: pass. Not saying it isn't a good idea, just that I'm not interested personally.

Darth Vader's black Eta-2: I kind of want this. I actually don't have any of the Eta-2s yet, and this one and Mace purple will probably be the only two I get.

Darth Vader's Black Jedi Starfighter  - Yellow, Red, Green, Blue, Purple, and now Black?  Seriously?  I guess all we need now are Orange and Indigo and we'll have all the colors of the rainbow!   ::)

Hey, there's still the Kit Fisto version. That just leaves one more and we're all set. Agen Kolar? Shaak Ti? Zett Jukassa? ;)

We'll, good for those who don't have the Federation vehicles yet. The Vader fighter is kinda cool. Not bad for an EU idea.

I wonder though, how many people buy the Federation stuff to have the variations, and how many are buying because they never got them the first time around?
