This showed up over at RS

If your standing or drinking, sit down and put that drink down because this vehicle looks really impressive!

That looks very nice.  About time they got around to doing this.  Kind of dissapointed they had to tweak it, but I still dig it.  Two for me please - if it pans out.   :)

I half wonder if it's going to show up in the Clone Wars with all the weaponry on it.  Just kidding but I am happy they found a creative way to get it out to those that wanted it.  It looks like the guns and stuff will be hidden if you don't want them out.  I am looking forward to the break apart feature even though of course it did not blow up in the film.  Anyway, it's a nice surprise.

This would be a nice surprise if it pans out, and it does fit in with the 30th Anniversary of ESB.  Hasbro keeps saying they have "big things" in store for collectors, and maybe this plays a part in that.  This is one of the only made OT vehicles (vintage or modern) that I'm still missing some version of, so I'd be quite happy if this sees release.  I saw these pics on Yakface this morning, along with a possible new Snowspeeder (which has been rumored/confirmed) that I'm really looking forward to as well.

I knew there was a good reason I bought 4 of them back in the day.  Yes I'm aware the vintage cloud car is cheap on eBay, but I've just been lazy waiting for H to get around to this.

New CC?  I'm very happy to see it considering they always said "no" to this.  Interesting looking for sure how they beefed it up, and that all appears to "hide" nicely.  the original CC's decently scaled but a snivvit oversized.  This looks to be pretty well perfectly scaled though, just eyeballing it.

I'm VERY happy about this. At least 2 for me!

Good on ya Hasbro. Now please don't make us wait for freakin' ever to get it. Or worse, find it amongst 4 figure waves at the same time like this and last year.

Hasbro actually addressed the Cloud Car recently in the Q&A sessions.  Almost to the point of shooting down a modern version with this response to Raving Toy Maniacs.  It almost seems like they might have been trying to throw collectors off the scent.

I actually like the hidden weapons features.  I think it makes the Cloud Car a more interesting vehicle.  And the seperating pods seem like a cool play feature for the kiddies.  Provided they buy the thing!

Wow.  Never in a million years did I think this was going to happen.  Good for Hasbro, and a neat way to make this 'cool.'
