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

 :P

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.

I sure hope you're right.... I sure hope you're right.   :-\

Yeah, historically (especially in the Modern Era) the large ticket items such as the '95 Falcon, '97 AT-AT and '99 Naboo Royal Starship debuted in August/September so that they would be in stores for the back to School shopping AND more specifically the Holiday shopping.

A $80-100 toy sells MUCH better in November as opposed to June.  If Hasbro does give us a large vehicle like a Turbo Tank or AT-TE, I wouldn't expect to see it in the stores until Late Fall/Early Winter...

I agree - the Gunship and Arena were late 2002 additions, so it makes sense that they would do something similar for 2005... if we get both of these made it will be a blessing.

I thought the ARC Wing thingy was on some lists isn't it?  I haven't seen that in any of the pics

I haven't heard of the ARC 170 discussed as a launch vehicle. The sooner they crank it out, the better, though. It's an army building ship.  :)

There's no sign of Obi-Wan's Starfighter repaint or the Greivous wheely thing, either.

Probably a mistake (at least on the dates), but Amazon has the following vehicle listings (supposedly shipping Feb 8):

Anakin Skywalker's Starfighter
Obi-Wan Kenobi's Starfighter
Grievous Wheel Bike
Tri Droid Fighter

Oh, and on the other subject, I really hope that we see that ARC fighter, looks like a cool design and could make a great toy.

Thanks for the Amazon links. Interesting that they have the same ship date on the vehicles as sws.com lists for the Anankin fighter -- Feb 8. Might as well do a preorder just to see if they let slip some April goodies early.

You were right - it's on the 4-inches list that GH linked to today:

Quote
85414 Gunship (large Vehicle) Assortment
Wave 1 - April 2005
2x Republic Gunship
2x ARC 170 Clone Starfighter

I imagine the ship will get proper treatment at the higher pricepoint.
