Only one way to find out... somebody take an OTC Cloud Car Pilot to SDCC for us.

Volunteers?

Man, when I was kid it was hard to get me to go anywhere without a star wars figure in my pocket. Not sure it would've been a cloud car pilot though...

After seeing the new CC Pilot with a mustache I am really digging the idea of having a stache pilot in each side of the car protecting Cloud City. They will bring back a lot of memories of G.I.Joe, as most of the pilots back then had Magnum style mustaches. I have to admit though I like the outfit on the OTC one better but the stache trumps all of that hands down.

I still have my original one that's in good condition but I'm glad to see an updated one with new play features and designs.

I wonder how detailed could be the interior cockpits of twin pod cloud car, perhaps the same style as the tac A wing fighter (all sculpted, without decals / stickers)

Check our Toy Fair 2010 Coverage, as I believe we got a cockpit interior image in there somewhere as best we could.

Suffice it to say though that the cockpit interior IS detailed and sculpted rather nice.

I didn't have a cloud car or a snow speeder as a kid, but I remember looking at the pictures in the Kenner pack-in brochure over and over again. When I pick up these vehicles I plan to recreate those set ups with modern figures for a bit of nostalgia.

I put in an order for the Cloud Car and Snowspeeder at TRU.com earlier today using their "Buy One, Get One 50% Off" sale, but, quite frankly, I'd be shocked if I didn't get an email saying that the items are no longer available, OR if TRU sends me something entirely different than what is advertised and I wind up having to return it (which is what happened to a friend with some BSG figures she ordered on TRU.com last fall).  This rash of new stuff showing up as in-stock on TRU.com seems too good to be true to me, and I'll be curious how many orders, if any, actually get fulfilled in the short-term.

I picked this up on friday and I really like it.

The OTC pilots fit in fine. I was surprised by the side missiles, I thought they were going to pull out like the ones on Grievous's fighter, but as it turns out the pods just slide in towards the middle revealing them. The fold out diorama it comes with, is actually very nice as well.

Found this the other day at TRU.  I have an orignal vintage version and now the new one.  Naturally, the new tooling goes well beyond the old one in terms of detail and functions.  The cockpits and opening avionics bays are my favorite features, as is the accurate paintjob.  I do not like the "splitting" feature and the missiles are too toyish for me.  The original version has less obtrusive landing gear as well.  Overall, however, its a great new vehicle :)
