Yeah I'm shocked (by looking at the size of it in pictures) to hear how small the box is. It goes to show how Hasbro can make "big" things not so big... When you think about it, the Spider Droid is mostly air, and yet as a toy it looks pretty huge... In reality, it's all height on 4 spindly legs, so it makes a great $20 vehicle because there's not much to it.
Same with the V-19... It's the vehicles with bulk to them that become more a problem, like the Sith Infiltrator or whatnot. This is why I wish Hasbro would do more to-scale vehicles... The TE, the V-19... They're great. Ships like the Y-Wing, if it had removable engine nacels, would be insanely less bulky to package. Same goes for the X-Wing... Small ships really when you break them down, and definitely doable to-scale.
