Does look REALLY good.  Early shots of it with figures nearby made me think it's actually made to-scale too, which is all I ever ask for with vehicles (Though this is a droid, not a vehicle I guess, sorta kinda).

The accuracy looks pretty spot on so I'm happy as a clam.  Count me in for a few if they're easy enough to get...  Which seems unlikely by my recent trips out to retail.  Hopefully I'll nab what I want though. :)

It looks AWESOME, and I will definitely be buying one of them when I get the chance to (and again, if I find it in a store).

I'll pick one up, even though I don't know what to do with my new AAT as it is.  :o

I really like this vehicle.  The only bad thing I foresee is missiles...EVERYWHERE!

Hopefully this one will sell well, and maybe they'll decide to make the Tank Droid.  Wish I could find an image of that.  Drat!

Yep, this is going to be a must-have for my collection, I will get at least 2 of them.

Question though, should the missiles really be red?

 :P

I think they should be black tipped, personally, but I think it looks great!  This and the geonosian fighter are two of the best SW vehicles in a looong time.

I picked this toy up at Target today here in Indy along with the Geo Starfighter. Check out my reviews in the review section.
