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'd almost would rather have anything over the Twilight.

Ya I didn't know that the Twighlight would be the "core" good guy vehicle for the Clone Wars after watching the "movie"  Thought it was just some POS ride they needed.  I'd still be happy with one though.

Cool. Too bad there's not a shot of the back of the box. The bike gag is neat.

Cool....  I will definitely be buying one.  :)

Looks like the pack-in figure might be a repaint of the clone gunner from the AT-TE Assault Squad BP?

Yup, I'm getting one...  Maybe two?  Since Juggernaughts seem to come in just various larger/smaller sizes, I can easily BS this thing as being to-scale "from a certain point of view", and so I'll get suckered into it at least once. :)  Looks pretty slick on the box too, I just hope it's quite a hefty sized vehicle is all.

I still haven't picked up the AT-TE, although I'd like to, but this one might be even more tempting to me.  One of my favorite vehicle designs from the PT, and it looks like it could make a really fun toy.  We'll have to see if the budget is there, but I hope to be able to grab one.  So much for me passing on PT/CW vehicles - they're just too tempting it seems.  If its the only "big item" released this year, it will help.  Just a box front so far, but it looks kind of cool.  Nice to pack in a speeder (as well as a clone) with it too.

The ARC-170 box is sitting on top of it for a little size comparison.  Unless the box is a total mock-up.

Kind of.  Neither box is fully in view so it's hard to tell how far off tothe right they go.  Also can't tell how disassembled the tank is - my first thought was that this is smaller than the AT-TE, but can't really tell based on this.  I hope someone comes across a back of box photo shortly...

My guess is that it will be about the same size as the AT-TE.

You can't tell the depth of the box well, can you?  Things at these higher pricepoints don't seem to adhere to the, "box size standard".  I think that's applicable to other sizes like the $20 pricepoint where Hasbro's said they fit the ship to the box more than anything.  The larger price points probably focus more on the toy and less on the packaging...  Unless they're wanting to standardize the $100 pricepoint boxes, but really will they ever do assortments at that price?  I doubt it.

There could be some assembly required here.  Basically this thing is a big box on wheels...with some electronic parts to it.

We'll probably see it at Toy Fare.

Exactly.  I'm assuming the soon to be faulty wheels amongst other things will have to be assembled to the tank.  I saw another pic with the ARC on top of the TT and the box really doesn't look too big.
