Are you talking about the links I posted? I can send you the files direct if you want.

or better yet (Again, sorry they aren't hi-res. Haven't found a hi-res image yet):

Cool to see another Tie Crawler in another line other than LEGO....I'm so hoping this gets made by Hasbro...Oh - that Rancor looks okayish - just not diggin the bright stripes.

Thanks! The first time I clicked, Geocities said the page had exceeded its bandwidth quota.

The critter looks alright, I guess, but the fluorescent stripes seem garish.

EDIT: Really nice pix of some new vehicles/droids from TFU.

Wow there's a lot of goodies on that poster image.  I wish we'd see a few more items from it made into the regular 3-3/4 scale, like the Rebel troop carrier and a couple of those weird walkers... and that nasty spider looking creature (is that from Dagobah?). Interesting we see Luke with Yoda on his back there so that's why I assume that's a Dagobah spider. 

It seems mostly like the Force Unleashed stuff might be near the bottom of the page though so I'm probably just wishful thinking.

Wouldn't the Rancor have to be a new sculpt to accomodate the rider? At the very least won't the back have to be redone to accomodate a saddle accessories ect??

If so, looking forward to it and the game cetainly!

Yep. It's actually the baby form of the Dagobah gnarltree.

Cool, thanks for the clarification on the spider.  I was pretty sure that it was this thing -

Good points... and it would definitely be very nice to see something all new for this!

This would have made a great Mcquarrie concept set.

That thing is creepy.

Strangely enough, my fiancee will love it as she's a spider enthusiast.

Thanks for posting the pic, I'll have to send it to her.

Watch Habro give us that AT-ST in the FU line and we'll have to wait another 3-4 years to modify it and release it as the Endor version.  ::)  Or they might be nice enough and just give it interchangable guns  :D

I love how they create video games and movies with the toys in mind.

A majority of that stuff Hasbro can create with minimal investment. 

The TIE crawler, Rancor, Snowspeeder, Hoth Turret - the list can go on.
