Looks like we might be getting the Clone Turbo Tank AND the AT-TE.  I can't imagine why Hasbro might make the AT-TE Gunner and Turbo Tank Driver otherwise.

Not to be a dick, but we have a Cloud Car Pilot and no modern Cloud Car.

Eschewing the EU one, or course.

Word has it that the Cloud Car will be re-released in later 2005 or early 2006.  I know, rumors don't mean crap, but the person who claims this was right on a couple other occassions (I've never seen him be wrong.) - his name is Stan, and he posts here once in a while and at Rebelscum.

Republic Gunship is confirmed to be re-released in a new (and pretty sweet) deco. I'll pick one or two up.

Yeah, the new paint deco on it looks pretty cool... haven't decided if I need/want this 3rd version yet.

Nice to see the Gunship getting re-released.  I always liked the design (OT-ish I think), and it is a nice, big toy (vehicle) that we don't see all that much of in the Star Wars line anymore.  I'll be passing, I have the first version and I'm happy with that, plus, I just don't have the room.  Vehicles on their own are big enough to display, but this sucker is quite large and the wingspan doesn't help any.  Paint redeco is nice too though.

I, too, like the idea of the Gunship being re-released. 

Like you (and a lot of others I'm sure) the re-release of this ship allows me to save a little $$ as I will be passing on buying it.  Thanks for helping me save some $$, Hasbro!   :P

Unless they pack in a new RotS Clone or something to make it new/better, I'll be happy with my AotC Gunship and my CW Gunship to transport my clone army allowing me to pass on this one.

I'm guessing this one will go on clearance somewhere down the road and I'll get one...

...usually I don't wait for clearances, but I already have two of the SAGA version.  If this were an all new vehicle though, you bet I would get it in a heartbeat.

C'mon - let's see an AT-TE..........

Almost looks like the old 70's Kenner Smash Up Derby/SSP Racers that came with a plastic rip cord that you pulled from the veichle & then set it on the floor & it went like a bat out of hell. Hmmm, I wonder.







Yakface.com now has some more pictures of the DISPLAY, including some closer shots of a few items, and some that I don't think could be seen in the RS pics.  A few examples:

BARC Speeder w/Trooper

Ding...ding...ding! I don't believe it, the BARC Speeder has the rip cord!  :o

Heh, the third cell in your cartoon strip has an SSP Black Widow - sold mine on ebay last year for about $35 or something like that.  Wow Dale, you are old. :P

Hmmm... I'm getting a bad feeling that the biggest vehicle will be the Gunship.   :(

Probably not.  Hasbro has always spaced out vehicle releases in the movie years.  I don't see why they wouldn't do the same this year.  I think they held back for a little while before releasing the Naboo Royal Starship in 1999.
