30AC Sith Infiltrator
« on: February 5, 2007, 12:36 AM »
Well, this looks like the ship we're all going to bitch about.   :-\

It doesn't look as bad as I thought, but Hasbro has to milk the SW license for another 10 years so...........there will be another.  I'm sure of it.

Out of all the pics, there's only one that really gives a sense of scale:



So either that guy has some seriously huge mitts, or the ship's really underscaled.

There will never be another Infiltrator besides this one.

I knew it's be under-scaled, but that's ridiculous. Though, I don't know what else I could have expected. :-\

I'm just guessing, but that thing might be like 1:50 scale or something close to that...  1:32 seems still off substantially.  That's funny.  It might be a good SW Miniatures set piece though.  Some Kenner/Hasbro stuff makes great tabletop gaming set pieces.

This is an easy pass for me upon seeing the pictures...  I didn't have high hopes anyway though for $20.

The guy doesn't have huge mitts.  The ship is small.  I think I'd pass, but I'm not 100% until I see a figure next to it.

Come on, guys....we KNEW this ship was going to be small (to fit into the $20 "starfighter" price range) and Hasbro ships are never, ever, ever to scale.

I don't see this as being any worse than the Falcon, the TIE's, the AT AT, Slave I....yeah, it's small, but it looks cool.  It looks like the real ship, it'll hold a Maul figure.....I'm very happy and can't wait to pick it up.

It seems like if you're complaining about scale, you're in the wrong hobby.  :)

I am not surprised by the size at all.  We knew it would be small for $20 and it is.   I don't really care.  His ship was in the film for about 2 scenes and did zilch.  It will be nice for a backdrop in a diorama I guess?

I think Maul will fit in there fine.  I figured it would have to be the size of the Jedi starfighters.  On one hand it's a shame it's so out of scale, and on the other, it's cool they're even doing it at all.

I tend to agree with Quazar on this one. Aside from all that, it's a neat toy... and to be perfectly honest, I'm thrilled to even be getting a new vehicle from Episode I.

I'll probably pick it up online.

You're not surprised, are you?  Surely, (being you handle every single QNA from Hasbro) you knew that it'd small enough to fit in the $20 starfighter box...

You're right on that.  Outside of the Titanium version of course!

Sure, I knew it was gonna be tiny, but I didn't think it'd be that tiny.

No complaints, though--I'm in the camp that thinks it's better to have a small Infiltrator for $20, than none at all, ever. . .

The kid in me really likes how they designed the ship to open to reveal missiles for shooting the good guys (at least, I think that's what it's supposed to be for).  ;)

I was wondering when images like this were going to surface.  Well, we had to expect something like this when Hasbro said in the Q&A's that they were scaling this ship for the Assault Vehicles line.

I've always thought that to even get this toy in the ballpark, it would have to be sized like the B-Wing.  But that would probably doom it to being an exclusive and limit it's potential profitability.

I recall seeing an image that shows the cockpit.  It looks like it's going to be a tight fit, even for the Saga Legends Darth Maul that's on the way.
