I hate to say it, but I'm going to pass on this.  Too much for too little.  Had it been a Sail Barge or Sandcrawler, a blockade Runner or even a Rebel Transport, I would have bought it the first day.  I just...can't do this anymore...

I like it a little bit, but not $150 good. Snag it on clearance.

I wasn't ever interested in this enough to care, so I'm really not interested now after basically half a year of not really caring much about toys anyway.

Or caring too much depending on your POV I guess.

But yeah, f it.  I'll wait for clearance...  and if clearances don't happen, can't say I care.  I don't know off-hand any vehicle I would've gotten up and boogied about.  Maybe a scale Y-Wing or X-Wing...  definitely those actually.  Not much else.

Wacky Prediction: This thing ends up not even making it to retail and is an online exclusive

Seriously, my stores have zero TVC or Clone Wars figures and are jam packed with Movie Heroes, Class I vehicles and the lame Class II repacks. And then whatever other stupid Pog/Jelly Bean type merchandise they are trying to get over this year. Absolutely no room for this one, and the Star Wars section is already really small and I highly doubt it's going to be expanded.

Personally I'm passing and spending the money on the repacked BAT-AT since I never got the original release

Four far more worthy choices for this line than the MTT.  Unfortunately, this may make the rest of those all a pipe dream.

I'm willing to pay full price to get a pristine MIB one for my packaged collection. But unlike what I did with the Attack Shuttle last year, I'm definitely waiting for clearance/sale for my opener. No way is this half-assed effort worth $150. To me, the Attack Shuttle was a far better toy/offering and that was $80 out of the gate - that's the same price this turd should have been.

For this price, the 20 battle droids it brags about having should have been all the Vintage Battle Droids. Maybe then it would be justified.

Super lame.  Saw the video on JTA.  This is about the lamest, most un-fun thing I've seen Hasbro release in a long time.  I think my kids would play with this for about 10 minutes before moving on and never touching it again.

Its hard to see how I would pay more than $50 for this, and that is almost solely because I'm still somewhat of a completist.

I can see someone wanting this if they really like TPM and want to set up the ground battle. I don't have room for it on that shelf, and the price is too high.

I'm waiting for a re-release of the AT-TE.  I chose the BMF Falcon over that and although I have no regrets over that choice...I do want an AT-TE full of AOTC Clones in my collection.

Exactly. When these things come out, everyone will be excited they found one. A few will even buy several for their armies. We hate the price but we will still buy.

I'm thinking I'll set mine up in some sort of Clone Wars battle scene rather than squaring off against a Gungan army.

I was just rewarded with 600 award points at my work (big surprise), which is like $600 in gift cards - the only place that I know of that carries new Star Wars stuff that accepts these award points is Kmart, so that's where I'll probably try and get my MTT.

Cool diggs Chewie!  I remember getting a BATAT, PIT, and TF Devy for cheap at the Kmart so will just wait it out and see if I can get one there.
