For those of you who like using the DPCI trick at Target:

Assortment #: 85196
DPCI#: 087-06-1246
* Use this number to help you score the Episode 3 Sneak Preview vehicle!

Now we can all keep tabs on when Target gets in Episode 3 Sneak Preview vehicles!

Around here the Sneak Peek stuff for AOTC didn't show until the rest of it did or didn't show at all.  It will be interesting to see what happens this time.

Rumor has it that the Preview Vehicle is Anakin's New Jedi/TIE Starfighter looking thing...

The yellow looking one that's popped up in a few places, such as the Insider...

Very nice...

I like this ship, and I like that you don't get stuck with a crappy pack-in figure.

Sweeeeeeet, love the weathering job. Hasbro seems to get the prequel vehicles down pretty good ala, Republic Gunship.† Definately picking up one, maybe two. :)

I am assuming R2 is permanently placed in there?  Yes, that does look nice.  I may have to break down and get it sometime.

I'm not sure exactly what it is, but I really like this vehicle.  It just looks...for lack of a better word...cool to me.  Nice to see Hasbro "confirm" the preview wave of figures (and vehicle) as well.  This looks like a good one, hopefully we'll get 2 or 3 different versions of this starfighter in the line as well.

I think that we will see more of these.  I believe that only Anikin's has the yellow paint job.  The others, including Kenobi's, have the traditional Rebiblic red.  It is a cool ship, and I like it a whole bunch.  But I wonder if it has any landing gear, or if it just sits on the ground like that.

From Hasbro's Site:

Anakinís Jedi Starfighter come with these great action features:
Firing missiles
Spring-open wings
Opening canopy
Retractable landing gear

:)

How good is the landing gear?  That remains to be seen I guess...

Maybe that's how it looks [/i]with[/i] the landing gear. Plus, Hasbro's idea of landing gear is a little lever that folds out and props the ship up about 1 centimeter.

Um...Y'know, it just occured to me that when this ship hits retail, there will be no pilot for it.  Anikin won't be due until  a few eeks later.  Only Hasbro could do somthing that careless.
