Neat. And here I thought they'd just rerelease the original mold. It looks great; can't wait to pick one up.  :)

I believe Hasbro at one point said the original mold is toast...  One of those things that just didn't survive the years I guess.

It was a solid item but this is much better.

We've got a much larger, and more detailed gallery of the prototypes posted on our front page...  Feel free to check them out:


Clicky to check it out.

The CC looks really fantastic...  I can picture it without the missles in the center, haha.  That item makes me wonder if we'll see an update to the CC pilot as well?

Wow.  Never in a million years did I think this was going to happen. 

No wonder after Hasbro continually stated that the were never going to do it.

AWESOME! I'll be very excited to see the finished product!

My sentiments exactly.  Kudos Hasbro!

It's clear now that when Hasbro says they're never going to do something (Sarlacc Pit - "It's a hole in the ground!" - Cloud Car) - "it doesn't do anything!" - they do it fairly soon after.  Sail Barge..?  I doubt that myself, but man.  This is cool.

This is really the big shocker for me...  I know they always said, "well if we could find a way to make it more aggressive...", which they did, but I didn't think they were even going to try actually. 

It looks very accurate to me...  Lots of detail, so I'm real excited to see two small OT vehicles done, seemingly, exactly right.  This was maybe my 2nd favorite item from the proto images.

This looks cool 8)  I'm not sure I like the pop-out missiles too much, but that is certainly not a deal-breaker and adds a lot of functionality to the model.  I got a vintage Cloud Car last year in an ebay auction with two of the Saga Cloud Car pilot figures.  That is a pretty accurate tooling itself, but this one seems more fun.  I'll be down for it should it come out.

Sign me up, I think it's great that they changed their tune on this.

Yeah this is probably one of the biggest surprises I gotta say...  I was talking with some locals this weekend and we were all sort of shocked that a CC has come about, despite pretty distinct comments to the contrary from Hasbro...  well, for years really.

I haven't bought a vehicle in years.  I will buy one of these.

I'm down for two.  I believe that they're commonly seen in pairs and I figure a pair escort the Falcon so I may hang them beside it for display.

Nice rendition of Bespin Cloud Car, perhaps it will be a $ 40 vehicle.

But at this price it will be a superb addition to our OTC collection.
