It's probably going to be released in the Fall if anything when the line relaunches for the new season of Clone Wars.  That way Hasbro can get sales going through some of Q3 and all of Q4.

Good point Nick...probably what we'll see as far as release date.  I think Hasbro is learning from their minor mistake by only releasing one large item.  How many people only bought one or the other concerning the BMF Falcon and AT-TE.  (Raises Hand)

If they had only released one last year and one this year I would probably have both.

Check the front page to see a new list of Target numbers.  Turbo Tank, $99.99 made the list, among other things.

I have to go the front page for news?  The hell is up with that  ???  I'm just happy the AT-TE replacement legs seem to be shipping.

Nice score on DPCIs. But I wonder what the Deluxe Vehicle will be. The Y-Wing? Seems that should be more in the $50 range like the B-Wing. Maybe it's The Twilight or a Republic Attack Shuttle?

A good question for sure.  The low $15.99 price was interesting too...  It could be Transformer stuff too, no?

I'd say the $15.99 item is the Transformers line. I have no guesses for the $65 item... maybe it's the Y-Wing as well as the BMF Slave 1 everyone wants. (I have no clue why, Boba was a weak character that got eaten by a giant *****)

So doing some calculations, a "scale" A5 Juggernaught would be about 4 feet long by 3 feet high.  Seriously...  And that's the small one. :)

Actually it seems like Juggernaughts are one of those SW vehicles that could come in a wide variety of sizes, and thus there's A5, A6 listings...  If this toy comes in small, and I'm sure it will at this point, I suppose I could BS it as a smaller more mobile version...  An A2 maybe.  ;)

Seriously though, the A5 is the "small" Juggernaught, smaller than the A6 which is what was in ROTS on the Kashyyyk beaches, and that thing by comparison is comically massive.  The A5's not far off from an AT-AT's length and about 5 to 7 meters more squat.

I'll start setting $10 a month aside to pay for it.  ;)

I think the Deluxe Vehicle will be the Twilight. They just can't ignore this ship. It still won't be the correct size, which is fine by me, but it will still be a good size, which is nice. I wish they had done something like this for the Sith Infiltrator.

Hmmmm.  Deluxe vehicle at a $65 price point?  The vehicles that come to mind are the Twilight and the Nu class shuttle.

While the Twilight is the more known ship, I'd MUCH rather prefer the Nu class shuttle.

I think the Deluxe Vehicle will be the Twilight.

I thought this too initially, but I just don't see it happening.  If it has any decent size to it at all, it should be a $100 item.  I bet we end up getting a rereleased shuttle or something much less cool.
