While it's a nice presentation and a neat figure (for a head swap) I can't justify paying $30 for a ship I acquired loose for $10.

To me it's a $15 ship packed with a $7 figure.

Big pass for me unless I find it on clearance for $20 or less.

You should have no problem finding this one Ben!

I'm actually pretty excited about this release, especially with a pretty new-ish figure included now.  The snowspeeder was one of my favorite vehicles as a kid, and still today.  It was one of the few vintage ships I had (and still have), so it has that extra bit of nostalgia as well.  I have yet to pick up a modern one, and was kind of holding off since one was rumored for this year - and I'm glad I did.  It looks pretty nice to me, and I would have never imagined we would get a Zev figure in the line.  For some reason I've always liked that character, from when I was a kid, just because he "found" Han and Luke - and seemed pretty happy about it :P.  Anyways, it looks good to me.  Even though it is a repaint, its one of the items I'm looking forward to the most this year.  Hopefully it will be easy to find.

I am getting it, because I don't have a snowspeeder vehicle.

Zev is awesome, which makes me wonder of two things.

1. Where's is our SA Snowspeeder Luke?

2. Where's is our SA Snowspeeder Wedge?

I am sure they will give us the Snowspeeder Luke at some point now that they bothered with Zev.  Not sure about Wedge though? They are funny about him, but I think they will eventually release him.

Did the Rebellion gain control of cloning technology, travel to this galaxy, kidnap and clone John Kerry, and then fly back to the Battle of Hoth?  I mean, Riekkan was pretty similar to Kerry, and Zev looks like Kerry after putting on a bit of weight around the chin and cheeks.  :)

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thought they made a John Kerry Rebel Pilot. Political affiliations aside, I'm all over this when it comes out. Total sucker for snowspeeders.

I'm in too.  I love the kitbashed figure; it is one of the best ones yet!  You know, the rebel pilots had their black boots on when they had the briefing with princess Leia just before the attack; it has me wondering if Luke is the only one with the snowboots since in filming they knew he would have to run in the snow.

Huh?  So you're saying it's worth 22.00, but you want it for under 20.00?  No wonder Hasbro is reluctant to make ships.

Now that I look at Zev some more a VTSC Luke re-hash would be more suitable for Snowspeeder Luke.Hasbro has many in for ALL of the vehicles this year. :-\

Yes.  That's what I'm saying it will take for me to buy a ship I already have.

Hasbro's reluctant to make ships?  Where have I been?

Here's the schedule for this year:


*CW Gunship
*Swamp X-Wing
*Endor AT-AT
*Windu Starfighter
*Vader Starfighter
*Obi Wan Starfighter
*Anakin Starfighter
*Greivous' Wheelbike
*Zev Snowspeeder

Sure they're going all out this year, Ruiner, but they haven't been so keen on giving us ships in the past.

I think this set looks great. I haven't picked up a snowspeeder yet (for some weird reason), so I'm really excited about this. I'll also have a rebel pilot body to use for new echo base rebel pilots.

If I can be sneaky about it, I might get 2 of these... mainly interested in the pilot.  It looks so awesome.

"Sneaky" as in sneaking it in past the woman?
