Were these supposed to be hitting soon or are they for sometime in the spring? I thought I would have seen these by now.

The boxed Hailfire looks cool with the more muted colors, but the loose photo is too Crayola-ey.

The oldschool AOTC/CW brown version is still my favorite; that hasn't been rereleased yet has it?

I forgot about these. They can wait as far as I'm concerned.

I have the original CW version still in its box in storage somewhere, never opened. I think this newer version is an easy pass, at least for me.

I might actually buy the Hailfire Droid if I see it, since I really like that color scheme on the AAT from the Christophsis battle pack I bought a couple weeks ago and they'd probably look nice together. And I don't have the Grievous yet, so that's a plus.

Did you notice how much they were asking for these?

I looked, but they didn't post the sticker, and truth be told, I wasn't interested enough to take one to a scanner.  :P Sorry.

Thanks for the price update Jayson. Now I don't need to waste any time looking.

Here's how it adds up: $20 vehicle + $7.50 fig + $12.50 "Only at TRU" sticker made from diamonds.
