Looks like a clean V-wing with a clone pilot and a blue/gray deco Hailfire with a Grevious.

This is something of a surprise.  But an easy pass as well.

I never did like the cheetah spots and the TAC V-Wing, but what happend to the Imperial repaint that was rumored?  I actually kinda like the paint scheme on the Hailfire Droid though, but not sure I'll pick up either - even though I caved on the dome.  I'm guessing $45 exclusives because they come with figures.

That's my guess.  Hasbro did an Indy Jungle Cutter with 3 bonus figures, and TRU's asking $40 (!!) for that.  Given vehicles are what, $25 there now?  $30 seems about right.  Too bad the Hailfire includes a Grievous instead of a Battle Droid or something I'd not mind having another of... I've already got a Grievous on my desk at work AND on the shelves at home...

Yeah, the Grievous doesn't make much sense, I'd rather have seen a BD commander repaint myself.

Decent, but probably a pass for me.

Could care less about the Grievous, but the Vwing with Pilot looks nicer than the plane Vwing.  Not sure if I'll get this or not...

Yes, this would have made much more sense than the Grievous figure pack-in.

I'm also surprised that they didn't save the V-Wing as a Legacy Collection exclusive and pack a Black & Gray version of the Evolutions ROTS Clone Pilot. If they wanted it to be a Clone Wars exclusive then it should have been a "dirty" version of the V-19 Torrent fighter instead. Have the V-Wings even appeared yet in the cartoon?

Interesting. I could go either way on these. The figures are definitely a deterrent, but I was hoping for a different kind of re-paint for my second V-Wing - like the afore mentioned Imperial variant.
