By the way, the "Aggressor" name was mine, not an actual Hasbro name  ;).  I called it that due to the number of places weapons have been placed on a relatively weapon-moderate vehicle.  But I should reserve judgment for final pics with everything hidden and removed.  My problem is that they think "kids" will only buy aggressive weapons-heavy vehicles, but I think kids aren't going to be interested in this at all.  This is a vehicle for us, the older collectors.  If they send 2-4 of these to each store, it should sell off pretty well (assuming there are at least that many collectors in a given average city).  But bombard stores with tons, and they're going to sit.

Well, if it was actually a Cloud Car, and not a Cloud Aggressor, I'd absolutely buy one.  I don't remember missiles coming out of every section of the vehicle.  This looks like a Transformer! 

Yeah... Darryl and his "aggressive" mandate  >:(.  The tall cockpit hatches look good though.  I'm peeved that the engine grille has been ruined with missiles and a separating feature.  I think I'll skip this one in favor of my vintage slight custom.

Looks like the blasters have 2 options, much like the recent AT-ST: a film accurate version, and a firing version.  I like the angle of the new pics too.  Still, I'm a little worried about the measurement tape showing about the same ship length though.

I just printed a coupon for the first time, and I don't know if this has been asked, but can it be used on Legacy as well?  Not just Clone Wars?

I think its the same guy.

Dang, that's the same comment over at RS!  This is one continuous shot, panning from right to left to follow Lando.  It can't be the same guy because there's no break in filming!

I was watching TESB DVD today, looking for a particular character, and I happened to notice what appeared to be another ICMG running ahead of Willrow. He appears to be African-American as well, wearing an orange jumpsuit, and apparently carrying an ICM!  Here are 3 pics in succession:

There were so few of this wave out before X-Mas, combined with all the distribution problems, that I think we'll see a good bit more of these showing up soon.  I was lucky to find the one case (minus Snowspeeder Luke) a few weeks back.

Hey guys- just finished my latest diorama, the Cloud City junkroom.  I have a ton of WIP pics over at RS's Diorama Forum; thanks for looking and hope you like them!

I really hope so, but those aforementioned measurements don't look good.  They are within a half inch the same in 2 directions.  But the cockpit looks much better, and I'm sure the deco will be great.

Well, this might be a bit of a downer if accurate, but I did some measuring based on the photos.  The one with the speeder upright against the wall and sheet of paper has a tape measure showing 27.5 cm long (which converts to 10.8 inches).  Another photo shows the width of the vehicle where the laser cannons separate from the body of the vehicle as being about 18 cm (about 7 in).  I went and measured the vintage mold and found it to be about a half inch longer lengthwise and about 3/4 to an inch wider.  So apparently the changes are more functional and cosmetic as opposed to scalewise.

As much as I've loved the Q and A sessions both for their informative value and Hasbro's willingness to communicate with us, I also regret the general doom and gloom answers and their insistence on catering to the supposed kids overwhelmingly compared to the older collectors.  Good character selection and reasonable prices keep the movie lines going, not being able to sell the other line so that this one survives.

Don't you mean smaller?  This appears to be a smaller, more to scale version.  

Whoops, wrong post to edit.

Thanks everyone!  As for dimensions, I can tell you right off without going to see that the width is exactly 4 feet and the depth is exactly 2 feet (it was a specific thin board I bought at Home Depot which measures 4' x 2').  As for height, the "box" bottom I made is 6 inches up, plus the height of the 3 columns would make it about 20-24 inches tall total.  Anton- great idea about the chin guns, and I had been watching a guy on eBay who sells them.  I don't have one of those Y-Wings unfortunately (I have 2 of the POTF2 ones)  :-[
