We are talking about the "NU" Class attack shuttle right?

Yes

It's incredible how different the images are of it.  Some show it as pretty huge, but in the cartoon it's fairly small...  Funny how varied it is.

I'm pretty happy they're giving this a go though.  It is aggressive looking.  Lots of guns, moving wings...  There's fun there for sure.

Republic Attack Ship image from UK Toyfair

Csillagok Haboruja!!!

Pretty cool, although they kinda got the front ramp wrong. (no perforations)
and WE HAVE A PACK-IN FIGURE!!!  ;D

Would love to see a close-up of that guy, looks like an all-new sculpt.

Great find, Jayson.

Maybe there will be a sticker sheet to address the ramp detail, if not, it's not a deal breaker. It be easy enough to customize.

Looks cool but kind of small. I like it overall, while I would have prefferred an OTC vehicle this is a neat ship that looks very SW's. I am in for one.

Looks big enough I guess, but definitely not enough for $100.  Could care less for the pilot, but I like what I see so far and I'm looking forward to seeing the guts of the ship + landing gear.

This looks cool, but this is a difficult toy to figure out.  It looks like the back opens up and has some room for playable features, but when the wings go up they are going to cover the openings...

I don't think this is supposed to be in the $100 price range, more like the cancelled deluxe series range. But the way prices go up, who knows?

Cool, looks very Pt stylish, more cuadrangular shape and very simetric
Ita an effort to bring to toy other spaceship, in that task the proportion could remain small (cause sw conception draws set bigger dimensions) but the necessary for fun.

Looks pretty cool...not sure if I'll get it though.

It looks smaller than $100 to me...  It's definitely scaled down as troopers can come down the ramp in 2's, so it's pretty small compared to the figure in the image.  I doubt I buy it, but as a kid I think it'd be a pretty slick toy...  I'm just wondering if it does anything other than "sit there" as it were?  Do the wings deploy slowly ala the ramps on the AT-TE?  Does the ship have any lights or sounds?

I'm curious to see any features it has and what the "play set" concept was, or if it basically ammounts to some removable bits?  Maybe the panels and things come off to form sort of a little fort or some such.

I think as the toon goes, it's a good choice...  Twilight would've been better when the Twilight was featured, but it's significantly larger too so I doubt they'd squeezed it into the $70-ish price range like this may wind up being.

I think Hasbro is starting to look at how anything over a certain price just isn't flying off shelves...  The AT-AT seemed to do alright, but I still see them around.  They hit a certain price, and just can't seem to move things like I think they'd like to move them.

Yep, according to the accompanying text from the site it comes with about 6-8 different sounds/buttons, along with some flashing red LED action.

Looks like the package refers to it as a "Republic Attack Ship"...but you can only just make out the corner. I'm hoping some full-on shots will emerge as this will be a good clue as to the scale and possible price point. I'm guessing $60-$70...anymore would be pushing it.
