BMF-Yes

ATTE -Yes

Turbo Tank-Yes

And keep in mind I don't even like Clone Wars stuff.

I'm glad my yearly dues to this web site are being well spent.

Clearly we have made a bookkeeping error somewhere then...

BMF...  Yes, on clearance at WM for about $50.  I did this because it's very off-scale, but very iconic.  I intend, quite insanely, to figure a way to hang it from the ceiling.  Anchored properly, it'll hang, but my concerns on how well it'll "display", and so I'm hoping to have it tipped downward so the top/nose are very visible.  It's the Falcon...  I was prepared NOT to get one, but when I could for so cheap, I caved.

Turbo Tard Tank...  Hell no.  The scale's so wildly off that I could not justify it.  It's a great toy, but it's a bad representation of a Turbo Tank.  I would've been more inclined had Hasbro tried less to make it "big" and instead made a small scout version of it that was more designd proportionately around that concept.

AT-TE...  Yes...  The AT-TE's a very well-scaled little vehicle, and I was quite shocked to be honest.  I got two, first one I got at a discount from Hasbro perks that year, and the second I got at a steep discount from Hasbro Toy Shop for free shipping as well.  I would like a 3rd, maybe even a 4th.  I'd love to do an Imperial deco with an accurate interior to the ICS books, and I'd like to muddy up one in a CW deco with an equally accurate interior.  I'll keep one "stock" most likely though as well.  That's kinda why I'd enjoy 4 of them.  :-\

I have supported them and will continue to.

BMF yes, my favorite SW vehicle ever made, hands down.
I want to get another but I want to keep it boxed and get it on clearance. I missed it when it hit $50 at WM, I even watched some beardo walk away with the last eight of them. >:(

AT-TE x2
I really like it and I bought two at $90 when it was on sale when it was first released. I never did get those replacement legs.

Turbo Tank - I have it but I never opened it yet because I am packing getting ready to move. I did buy this with much less enthusiasm because I was not really yearning for it. I am sure it's nice but I am only buying one.

I have supported every one hoping to get a Big Slave One, AT-AT or Sail Barge one day. I am really hoping the Big Slave One is next in line, I think the Turbo Tank will do well just not as well as last years big boys. It seems to be selling slower than the previous ones as many members pointed out. All that may chnge in October when the Christmas shopping season starts.

The Turbo Tank is also going to actually be in the CW season 2.

BMF-Yes.  Full Price

AT-TE-Yes.  Full Price

Turbo Tank-Yes.  Full price, just today.  It's a fun toy, but my 5 year old got frustrated that he couldn't push the speederbike in.  In really does take some strength.

I like the big vehicles, but at this point I'd rather have a good playset than another vehicle.

I've picked up the big 3 (Falcon, AT-TE, Turbo Tank), but have only opened the Falcon so far.   :-\

When I bought the BMF I realised this toy was a must in my collection, because I have never bought any version of the Falcon (They always have been expensive), other reason was the BMF is itself a playset (Dejarik table, gunner station, medic bay, smuggler compartments, etc).

Im satisfied with the paintjob and decals inside, also with the scale.

When thinking in big vehicles I wonder if Hasbro would make the new Slave I near the BMF size (potf2 and Otc Slave Is feature a small cockpit for only Boba)

Perhaps an interesting toy would be a Sote Outrider (big size)

More, do you think The current X wing fighter got its definitive size.... or Hasbro will launch a newer, bigger and more complex Incom 65 Xwing?

Finally in a wishlist I want a big ATAT and a big Rebel transport.

I bought an AT-TE and expect to buy a Turbo Tank at some point.  The BMF... I just don't have anywhere to put one of those.

Maybe next years List to Hasbro at SDCC will include Vehicles...all of those are on my list.

I bought the AT-TE and the BMF, and I love both of them.

I'm passing on the Turbo Tank. It looks like a lot of fun, but I'd rather save my limited space for the next OT large vehicle offering. I will be buying the Clone Wars Y-Wing though.

I will pick up the Turbo Tank at some point.  I do think it's a bit overpriced but what Star Wars item is not right now?  Yeah, I have 1 AT-TE and 1 BMF.  I won't ever be able to buy multiples of each.  Unless we are talking 20 years from now.  LOL.

The Turbo Tank looks like a fun toy, but not a good collectable.

The BMF Falcon is both, and so is the AT-TE I think (I don't have that one).

I really would love to have them all, because this is a line that I see worthwhile in the future, and in my defense I've not really supported any of the Clone Wars era figures or vehicles. Unfortunately the BMF was just too expensive to justify especially with the price of a basic figure skyrocketing past what I termed my limit in the last year or two.

I picked up the AT-TE today as it was on sale at my local TRU, and because I had a $10 off coupon.

I probably will pass on the Turbo-Tank unless it has a similar sale.

The Falcon and AT-TE still seem like a sure bet for another 50% sale at TRU. I was at one this morning before bringing my mom in for a pre-biopsy and they must have got another 4 of each in on top of what they have already.

I don't care what H claims but these large vehicles were either produced in far too lrage of numbers, or sales really weren't there.

I know myself, I bought both of these on clearance after XMas last year and am still holding out on the Turbo Tank. One WalMart here is just about done finishing up a remodel and has the Tank on clearance for $85, but I definitely see it going even lower soon.

Just not the right time or economy for such substantial vehicles with such substantial prices.

Hell yes, I'll buy anything with a Clone Wars logo on it. (Except for that educational junk)

I want to see them roll out The Twilight next year at this price point. It would be awesome!
