Hah, that's funny...  Interesting pic of the ship though.  A bit better detail there, as far as the size of it.  Thanks for the heads up Jayson.

Like the cockpit. Looks underscaled but still decent, but not $130 or whatever decent.

It sad there's like a $1000 worth of toys in that picture.

Go here, scroll down to the 3D image gallery, after you get the pop-out, click the up arrow on the left hand side 8 times or so and the image thumbnail should show up. Click it for the larger image.

Nice find Jay!  Looks similiar LEGO MTT, but that's good I guess. 

Seems kinda smallish compared to the the size of the tanks.  Oh Toyfair...hurry up and get here.

ah found it now. 

ps - I posted in the CW section but WM has the RC Clone tank thingy for $15 with free shipping.  Just mentioning it here since the only reason I found that price was because I was looking for this MTT picture.

It is small compared to the AAT's...  The "3 feet long" thing was all about it with the troop compartment opened/deployed.  That's a little deceptive IMO.  It's closer to 2 feet I'd guess.  I find it a bit too small even for $100, but that's me.  I'm certainly going to wait on it...  If I get one later great, but if I miss it I won't be shedding any tears either.

I was thinking maybe the final product will still come with folded droids too, and those are just there for the picture.  Just a guess.

Looking at that photo makes me wish I had a set of those 3D glasses.

Honestly, it looks pretty crappy. The deployment rack just kind of slides out, and they're standing there. It's definitely not a revolutionary bit of toy engineering. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't expecting Hasbro to perfectly copy the deployment mechanism featured in the movie, but this is really phoning it in.

I really feel like the attention to detail they put into the AT-AT and Millennium Falcon has been lost with this.

And with the price going up on Vintage figures, who wants to spend $400 to fill one of these with posable battledroids?

I took some video of it, so maybe you'll see it here (I'm sure other sites have done the same) soon.

When you retract the rack, you don't push a button. You have to first manipulate the top and adjust things before you do it.  :-\

This is pretty neat, but I think I can pass on it.

I am very pleased after checking out the video. I will get one initially at full price and another when I see a sale of some sort. The AT-TE and Turbo Tank need worthy adversaries to slug it out with.

After looking at some of the pics and videos of this from Toy Fair, it does look kind of neat.  After seeing TPM this weekend, it sort of makes me want to pick up this and some of the other vehicles I missed, so we'll see.  I'd like to get one of these, but honestly, this is one that's going to have to hit a discount/clearance I think.  I just can't justify $140 for this, and it would have to get under $100 for me to start thinking about it.  If it got to some "super sale" like some of the other big vehicles have, I'd jump at it though.  It is getting difficult to find a good place to display these big vehicles though, my AT-TE is still just sitting on the floor next to display cases.
