Last time I saw that thing was when I watched Wild Wild West. And yeah I liked that movie, do something about it.:smoker:

I've seen this entry 3 or 4 times now, as I had to report on it yesterday, and I just noticed now that it has a back seat so you can put a second figure in it.

Personally, I don't care for the look of this thing that much, but maybe it'll be cooler in the film.

From the looks of that pic it doesn't appear that the Wookies designed the thing with comfort in mind, and just how are they supposed to steer that thing without a rotor. :confused:

It flaps rather than spins, so they probably slow or speed up the flapping motion and lean to make turns. (Basically, it seems like yet another Prequel impracticality, one of the things I don't like about the prequels in fact.)

It kind of reminds me of those mini-rig sorta vehicles that Kenner came out with, I wish it were based on that too. It's an interesting looking ship, but I'd much rather keep it out of the movie.

I wonder how many people are going to shoot themselves with the rear missile as they "fly" it? :D
