Saw this over at Yakface:



Hasbro must think collectors wipe with hundred dollar bills and need another superb vehicle this year.  ::)

Very nice...  May be the nicest thing I've seen all day actually. :)

I'm sort of pondering how I can heighten a Spider Droid,b ut the V-19 looks perfect. :)

Sweet! Okay so NOW this year for vehicles I'm getting:
3 AT-TEs
3 AT-APs
3-4 Homing Spider droids
1 Greivous Starfighter
1-2 V-wings

Expensive year for vehicles, but I'm looking forward to it.

Glad people are liking this one... for some reason though, it doesn't do anything for me.  Guess that's more money for another Spider Droid.

For the guys attending the event, did you see or ask if the tail swings down into position UNDER the ship? That is how it's supposed to fly.

If it doesn't do that, then I may very well pass on it. That would be one glaring mistake, and enough for me to pass on it.

There is wing movement, but since it was hung up they couldn't take it down to show us...

I think the Torrent may well be my favorite piece of the day...  Great pictures Jeff.

I'm gonna get a flight of those badboys. :)

Good catch Sal - why didn't they hang it up with the tail wing in the lowered position? It makes me wonder if it pivots down at all. (I know they told you it did Jeff, but they could have just been talking about the left and right wings)

Cool looking ship. This is supposed to be in the $20 price range, correct? If it is, then I'm down for two. My Evolutions clone Pilots need something new to fly.

Very happy that Hasbro is finally cranking out new vehicles.  At least three for me please.  :)

I'm just hoping that they're sticking to their "special" $20 price point for these assault vehicles.
