I could not agree more.  I picked up an ATT yesterday and ran back today to get another.  Sweet.  I have several TPM ones but this was is much better.  Makes me wish I coudl exchnages the old ones for the new ones.

The only difference is the paint job, right? The paint job is that good?

The paint job does look better, however, IMO I don't think it makes it look that much better.

Here's my recommendation for repaint of the year:



I can't believe this one is packed one per case...even in the revisional assortments.

Getting one for X-Mas, and I gotta agree that out of that wave the Vader Jedi Fighter is just outstanding looking... 

Though the AAT and Hailfire really are nice updated paintjobs and the kids have to love those.  I know a 9 year old getting both and he doesn't know it yet, but saw the pics online of them and went nuts asking for them...  A little lie to him that they weren't out yet will keep his surprise safe.

I totally missed your post but yes the paint job is that good.  The thing look like a real vehicle from the movie and not a toy.

I think all three - Vader's Starfighter, Hailfire Droid and the AAT have really good paint jobs.  Some of Hasbro's best!

Without a doubt.  I love them and I really hope this is a mark of future things to come.  Hasbro keeps dissapointing me with figure but kudos on vehicles.  Even that shuttle for $60 was nice even if I pay too much at FAO.com years ago.

If it wasn't for the space issues I'm having, I'm sure I would have bought a second set of all three by now.

Combine the sharp design of the Jedi Starfighter with the sexy Sith black?  Oh yeah, I need this.  8)

Now if they would just finally show up, I'd be happy.  [/Canadian rant]

Just curious, but has anyone been seeing the "new" (30 AC boxed) vehicles at Target stores?  I've seen the newly packaged ships at both TRU and Wal-Mart, but our Target doesn't even seem to have a spot for vehicles currently.  On the lower shelves, there are tin sets, battle packs, and lots of spring-loaded lightsabers.  I was just wondering if anyone has been seeing vehicles (new or old) at their Target stores, at least since the reset.  I'm sure they are coming back (exclusives and all), but it is just an observation.

TRU seems to have had the newer wave a couple of times (picked up a Vader Starfighter there - for $5 more), and I saw the AAT at Wal-Mart once so they must have been there at some point as well (shelf sticker is still there).

Nothing at Target or WM around here.  I have seen these at TRU only.

The only place that has carried vehicles in the last year is Toys R Us (in my city), and even they have removed the Vehicle section since the new year.  :'(
