    Homing Spider Droid

    Whatever happenned to this Action Fleet entry? I know I saw pictures of it somewhere, but never saw it on shelves, and I think I only saw a prototype once on eBay.

    I am really dissapointed that this was never released. It would have been nice to have something to set up in opposition to the Action Fleet AT-TE in a diorama...

    I'm afraid it got cancelled just before it was supposed to be released, with what I consider to be a poor explanation of why it was shelved. Honestly, if they had gotten this wave to retail, it might have been the best selling wave of the Ep 2 AF line up till that point.

    IIRC, we did see one or two of these go for auction on eBay. They were either protoypes, or other some manner of pre-release status. Maybe in mock-up packaging?

    Yeah, they were in mock-up packaging, that new stuff that's a big stupid plastic square bubble.

    Any sightings of one recently? They had a prototype on Brian's Toys for $500.00. I passed it up and now am sorely regretting it as I cannot find another one anywhere.

    I'm afraid not, this one seems to be harder to find than the E-wing wave back in the day.

    Any ideas as to where one would look to try to get in touch with those who have these items? I would offer a pretty penny for one...

    Hi Scackmgackm,

    Here are a few pics of the two samples I have. (None of them are for sale). I'm only aware of four units that have been sold to collectors through Ebay : 1 unpainted proto (without trademarks moulded on it), 1 painted proto with trademarks moulded on the lower part of the sphere, 1 painted proto without trademarks in test-shot box (Republic Cruiser) and 1 painted proto with trademarks in test-shot box (Republic Cruiser). There should have been more...
    I got the two without trademarks. I only hope Hasbro will make more AF in the future but I really doubt we could see something new in the near future...
    We will have more MM, better than nothing.

    That's the first time I've ever seen that piece. I'm not big into MM but I bought a ton of em at TRU about 5 years back at a big discount. It's always neat to see prototypes such as these.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!
