That is sooo funny and so true.  When I got the CW gunship my wife asked me why I bought another one, since I already had about 8 or 9 of them (different styles and duplicates).  Since I customized some AOTC myself, the paint job excuse was no good.  What can I say. :-X

That's a hell of a lot of Gunships... I remember back at the original Yak forums about 6 years ago, didn't you have several AAT tanks Gatillo?

"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."

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.

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
You also forgot:
AAT
Hailfire Droid
Vader's Tie Advanced Fighter
Droid Trifighter
White Tiefighter

Unless you meant what your buyingg.

Um...you do notice that NONE of them are new molds.  They're all just repaints that Hasbro is gaurenteed to make money on.   

Diego-Bah...maybe those pilots that Leia was talking to were the guys who flew the x-wings?

Yeah, where are the new molds?  It really is ridiculous.

With all of the hype that has come from fans wanting the AT-TE, I can't imagine any of the others to get a significant amount of votes compared to it by the end of the poll.

I voted for the AT-Te, but mainly because I think making a custom Sail Barge might be easier than an AT-TE.

That does make sense since they were talking about 2 fighter against a Star Destroyer and such..

I was thinking, I really have to get this ship for the pilot.  I wish they included a rear gunner too.

Good point Chewie. Two pilots is best.

The only improvement I would like to see to the speeder, beyond the awesome flaps, is a corrected seat. The seat backs can, and should, certainly be moves cab forward. This would make it more accurate.

It's so huge though that moving the seats wouldn't be a huge improvement...  not to me anyway.  The Snowspeeder is like 1.5 times the size it should be!  It's massive compared to even some starfighters that are to-scale...  It's a ship I loved as a kid and features some spiffy details but man I just wish they'd crank out a new one of this to be honest, ala the Landspeeder.  A to-scale Snowspeeder would actually have to be closer to the EU Airspeeder than the current sculpt it has...  That's a big differences. :)

That's my gripe though...  I'm going to nab one but either sell the snowspeeder on its own for a discount or I'm going to give it to someone.  I want the figure though. :)

The boot issue is right, there's pilots w/out the Hoth boots on for whatever reason...  THey are the fighter escort though that Leia is talking to while Luke and other pilots that flew the air cover mission are seen with the Hoth boots on (Wedge I believe you can see has the snowboots on as he says farewell to Luke, while a couple others loading gear up have them on).  I'd assume this guy should've had them on too however it's easily debateable since we don't see his feet too.  I like the figure, it's a lot better than some half-assed pack-ins we've gotten.  I maybe just am used to garbage from them but this one seems decent.  Too bad about the arms is all.  You take just a hair more effort to put say the forearms and gloves from the AT-AT Driver on there and new shoulders, and you have a really great basic figure you'd probably get few complaints on if it were re-released at some point in the basic line.

Yeah I'm going to pass on this vehicle.  Hasbro has done such a horrible job with scale that the snowspeeder is about 1/3rd the size of the AT-AT, when in reality is should be more the scale of a 10 year old kid (AT AT) swatting a bumble bee (snowspeeder).

A snowspeeder looks okay displayed separately, but when put into a scene with an AT AT, it looks idiotic.

Just another run of the mill of the ancient sculpt, and poor scale.
