TRU Clone Wars ARC-170 (Wampa's Head)

I'll pass (I don't have room for the ARC-170 I have let alone more of them), but I like the little Wampa Head on there.  :)

Boy, that does look pretty nifty.  I really like the ARC-170 ship too, and have the earlier ROTS one, but like Jeff, I just don't think I have the room for this.  Especially with the Falcon, and now things like the Sarlacc, Homestead, etc. coming in the battle packs line.  Its going to be tough to find room for all of this stuff - let alone afford it.  Nice ship though, wish I could grab one.

This ship's deco is too clean, like the new Gunship. I would have like to see some battle wear on both, it would make them both more appealing. I may have bought in and got rid of one of my other ones. I have yet to open the Target Space Whale version and I also have two ROTS ones (one is also in the box)

Outside of the Wampa sticker there is nothing to it, nice for those who missed the original ROTS. At least the Twi'lek chic on the gunship looks like a cool graphic. Do you guys remember when great vehicles like this were not reissued for awhile to space out the line, looks like those days are gone

No room & no desire for this one - PASS.

I actually like this a lot, and since I don't have an ARC yet (passed on the Target ones at 7.50 - yup, I did) I may get it.  Space is a huge issue for me though.

Another easy pass.  I own 3 of these already and the Wampa paint just isn't enough for me.  This is the fist time in seven years where I'm finally not compelled to buy everything Star Wars...  There's simply way too much stuff this year - especially with the Joes and Transformers.  I'm going to have to bow out of one of these three lines pretty quick here.

Looking at the price tag though - how in the hell is this thing only $34.99 at TRU, but  the "new" Gunship is $49.99 at WM?  Same amount of plastic, yet a $15 increase in price?  Meh...

The thing that bothers me is the #1 thing that bugs the absolute hell out of me about EU

Hoth is a backwater planet with no civilizations and should not be well known throughout the galaxy, let alone one of the few wildlife creatures that exist. Hell, the Alliance doesn't even know that Wampas are on Hoth.  And yet...here is a wampa showing up on a starship.  LamEU ::)

There could be wampas on other planets...

I seem to remember there being a Wampa on a planet (Gall?) on the Shadows of the Empire game.  I think it had a more tan wool color... I do recall that sucker taking about a hundred blasts before it finally dies.

Yup!  If you played Shadows of the Empire on the Nintendo 64, you might recall some brown Cliff Wampas on the planet of Gall.  Of course, with a name like Cliff Wampa, I'd expect it to be telling me obscure trivia at some bar. 

Asajj Ventress also fought a Wampa in the original Clone Wars series in that arena on Rattatak.  They get around.

There's also the Swamp Wampa in Jedi Outcast.
