Heh...

I guess in ROTS they ride choppers into combat and in ROTJ they ride crotch rockets? :)

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.

Eh?  Sorta...  They're really close in an ambiguous way! :)

Oh, yeah, I dig that scout too...  I even like the bike, sorta, I guess...  I think the ROTJ design is more "military" looking though.

If the scout's nicely articulated, I'm ALL about htat figure seeing a ROTJ repaint.  He'll at least be good fodder to start off with.

I hope that Scout is removable.

I'd assume so, but you never know with Hasbro.
don't you know there ain't no devil, there's just God when he's drunk

So going back and looking at the line list, the speeder is surely the "BARC Speeder" but does anyone have a guess at the price for these guys? Or has it been listed somewhere?

Quote
Small Vehicles
#01 GRIEVOUS WHEEL BIKE
#02 BOGA W/ OBI-WAN
#05 BARC SPEEDER W/BARC TROOPER

And also looking at the list, the Starfighters are listed as "large" which is pretty tiny, me thinks. I hope we don't get shafted out of a nice big scale toy this year. I really want a frickin' AT-TE.  >:(

I really want an AT-TE too... seems like almost everyone out there wants one to be made. 

Remember Stan, the collector who used to post here a while back?  He was right about the Sandcrawler and the Kmart Cantina sets way before any official confirmation or fan sites said anything about them coming out, and he claimed recently that the AT-TE would be released in the Fall or right before Christmas.  Let's hope so.

Then I suppose that the swamp speeder thing will be the Medium Vehicle?

I don't know... Hasbro's really confusing me here... and how could they possibly consider Obi Wan's starfighter to be a "big vehicle?"

A new list from a French site isn't listing the AT-TE in the '05 lineup.............. :-\

But there's 2 ships in a "Gunship" assortment on that list. So a repaint gunship obviously... but could we be getting an underscaled AT-TE as the second ship in that asst?

Ooooh - I think we still might be getting an AT-TE - even if it is underscaled, it would be cool.  The AT-AT is underscaled, and it's still awesome.
