Well, hmmm...

I'm gonna need like 5 of those, just as they are.  Then a winter camo, and a desert camo.  Then I'll need 3 to convert to hovering models.  Then I'll need one to convert to a non-combat recovery vehicle.  Then I'll need an up-armored urban one.  Then I'll need a....

Technically yes, however I will only be selling one, and that will be out of guilt.  You can fight it out hunger games style.

Thanks Rob, I'm proud to have partnered with Hasbro on this exclusive I don't plan to give to anyone but one person...  OH you mean the tank itself.  Oh yes, it's cool.

Scockery may win simply because he's going to do this in costume.

Glad to see this!  I had dialed back my expectations for any significant SDCC reveals, but this blew it out of the water.  I like what they've shown of the interior in those initial CAD drawings, and I hope they can also incorporate the kyber crystal crates.

Nice.

Steve Evans talks about the Imp Assault Tank in our Q&A

"it was an affordable size - going to probably be around the $80mark - that price still to be determined"

$80.  Thoughts?

Wait, what?  This is 3.75" scale, right?  This thing looks awesome, but unless its RC or comes with a $40 rebate, I'm not buying one for $80.  I think I paid around $80 for the U-Wing and the Tie Striker combined.

I would never want pricing to discourage them from making a quality toy, but on the surface that seems high. Maybe that's the new norm though. At the end of the day I'm willing to pay for something done properly. Like a $100+ Ghost.

A little shocked at the price to be honest. I thought $50. This is a small vehicle comparatively. I know they're going all out, but for me personally, it's not something I'd run out and buy. A scale U-Wing, you bet, but apparently that would be $$$. Cost, space, competition for my money from other lines, most of them Hasbro - those are all considerations when it comes to stuff like this.

The detail is amazing.  I would think this would still be the $50-$60 price point like the Walmart exclusive AT-ST.

If this thing comes with two SA Tank drivers, I'd pay $80 for it.
