Thanks for the heads up!  Now to track down a couple of tank drivers for it!  :D

Just got notice that my Assault Tank has shipped from EE. It's tracking for Friday but maybe Thursday delivery.

Same, from EE. 

This is shaping up to be an expensive month.

I pre-ordered via Amazon.  Gotta love prime shipping!

I was going to, but the tax on Amazon tacked $8 onto the price so I figured Iíd use Jeffís link, save a few bucks, and wait for the slower shipping.

The Assault Tank arrived today and boy was it worth it. It has removable panels, a two person cockpit and working treads. Only one of the cargo containers open with three Kabara crystal containers. I need some tank pilots now. The vintage Kenner packaging is really cool.

I got my Assault Tank today as well (ordered from EE).  This thing is practically a model!  Iíve collected the 21st Century Toys and BBI 1/18 scale armored vehicles for years and those were basically highly detailed preassembled models with a level of detail that far outstripped most Star Wars toys... The Assault Tank is the exception  8)

The vehicle is loaded with working features and (thankfully) sidesteps any gimmicky features like firing missiles, sound effects, etc.  Basically the functional aspects are as follows:

Working treads
Rotating main cannons
Swiveling secondary guns
Removable deck plates for cargo bed
Foot pegs for figures to stand in cargo bed
Two solid kyber crystal transport containers
One container that opens & has two crystal cylinders that open to reveal kyber crystals
Opening drivers hatch
Opening engine cover with detailed engine
Opening commanderís hatch
Removable front cover to access interior
Interior features seats, steering controls (driverís controls move) tons of switches, circuitry, etc.  Even the backside of the removable front panel is detailed with cooling fans and circuitry

Iíve got mine crewed with some of the Black Series Scarif Trooper figures at least until I can find some of the new Assault Tank Driver figures in the next TVC figure wave...  Overall I am very pleased with the Imperial Assault Tank and hope we get more Vintage series vehicles in time.

Sorry for the double post, however, here are some photos of the Imperial Assault Tank.  Enjoy 8)

I don't know what I'm more jealous of.  The fact that you received your tank before me, or that you managed to get three Scarif Shoretroopers!  :D


Thanks for sharing the pics!
