New pic from SDCC. The tank looks a bit funky to me, but it looks to be pretty decent sized. Some Battle Droids would look killer on the side platforms.

I've always thought that bug-eyed thing looked silly, but looks pretty accurate.  At least it's something new instead of a repaint.

I'm thinking it's decently sized as well.  Nice sculpting, very sharp.  The Seps "numbers" are everything that make them formidable, so I like seeing Hasbro making the effort to get to their other bigger hardware.  Especially with the Clones having the AT-TE and now a light tank as well.

I scored the Tank Droid at my local Target this morning. The side swing open to carry a droid pilot of your choosing.

Nice find Jay!  Is this the first time where it's only one new vehicle in a new assortment?

Too bad Hasbro didn't put foot pegs on the running boards...so battle droids could ride on it, like in the movies.  I swear, sometimes I think that Hasbro forgets that people actaully want to play with these things...

Yeah, that's my only complaint so far for the vehicle.

My son likes anything that is a tank it seems.  Undoubtedly it will enter the home at somepoint whether it's for his birthday or whatever.  I actually like this thing.  A bit funky looking but fun I think.  I am glad the tread actually moves.

This does look kind of cool, and I like that it has "real" treads.

I opened this up the other night and I have to say that I like this better than I thought I would. Hasbro did a bang up job on this one. I highly recommended picking this up, it actually has two separate canopys to seat figures, they only show one of them on the box.

Actually the back of the box has a call out saying "gunner door opens!"  ;)

I got this last week. I love the toy, but unfortunately one of the missiles was missing. I'm a stickler for complete toys, so I plan on sending it back to Hasbro for another one. (More likely Darth Vader's TIE Fighter, but whatever.) It is a great toy and pretty hefty at that. I'm looking forward to getting another complete one down the road.

I was referring to the front canopy that opens as well. That door is located on the left canon. There is no mention of it on the box, they only mention the gunner one. Sorry if I was not clear.

You should call customer service I am sure they would send you a replacement. I have always had good experiences with them.
