For those on the fence about another snowspeeder...this one is very movie-accurate out of the box-I'm very impressed with the detail Hasbro put into this one. Modeller's question, for anyone with moderate to excellent skills...how do I go about adding the small rectangular grill at the front of the cockpit? There's actually a small recessed area. Is there some type I could buy somewhere & cut, a decal sheet or some other idea? Anyone?

Good question about that grille, I had forgotten but it is just a flat panel on this one. I would think a dremel with a simple line jig would do the trick, they would only have to be shallow cuts anyway.

Hasbro has some wiggle room there, this prop doesn't have that grille either: http://celestiasws.free.fr/images/snowspeeder.jpg

but the Master Replicas one that they said was studio accurate does:

Finally, after hitting a total of eight Targets, found one with a lone Cloud Car.

Originally, when I saw they were releasing another snowspeeder this year, I thought it was an easy pass. For the last 5 or so weeks, I've been reading one positive review after another about this ship on the forums. So with the sale, I picked one up today. I must say, I am very impressed. The last snowspeeder I purchased was in 1980. This new one is very much improved! The attention to detail + the ability to choose between play features and movie-accurate features is a great win from the design team at Hasbro. You know, every once in a while they do an excellent job and we should let them know.

If I can find another at Target this week, I think I'll pick it up for Wedge to ride around in. I too have been in love with this thing since I took it out of the box. The Cloud car is very nice, but the snowspeeder is close to perfect.

which wedge snowspeeder pilot will you be using? I've made the ultimate wedge snowspeeder pilot

thinking about getting both the Snowspeeder and the Cloud Car just having a hard time finding them at retail at the moment.... hoping that within a few weeks they will be plentiful and I'll be able to snag one of each

Ditto to all that. I had the original as a kid and it always bugged me that it was so freaking huge. The firing guns on this one had me worried, especially since every picture I saw had them in place instead of the movie versions. I got it on sale at Target last week, and I would have gladly paid full price at TRU after seeing the wonderful job the've done on it.

I too am considering buying a second for Wedge and Janson. Now I've just got to get a Hoth Wedge...

HOth wedge is soooooo easy to build....new luke snowspeeder pilot with the head from the bwing pilot from evolutions, and finally wedge's helmet from the target xwing.....PERFECT!!!!!!:thumbsup:

Too much expense in that for me and since I don't have spares of any of those so I'd be sacrificing three figures for the sake of one. I'll probably just wait for the inevitable repaint of the snowspeeder with orange stripes with the included Hoth Wedge that will be a Walmart/Target/TRU exclusive in the next couple of years.
