    New Snowspeeder!

    Well, is this supposed to be the FINAL version?

    It sure looks like it.

    Where is Luke?

    It looks like Dack is just another weak Hasbro pack-in. I guess they are having some trouble getting away from the BUFF look.

    Yep, that Dack sure is buff. HEHEHEHE

    Overall, the speeder looks pretty good. I will be buying at least 1 maybe more if they ever go on sale!!!

    I like the way Hasbro has been packing ships with this new line, a trend I'd like to see continue thru EP2 at least.

    Don't ask my why, since I open all of my ships.

    But it has to be great for all those MIMB collectors. Now they can have their toy and see it too.
    May the force be with you.

    Where is Luke anyway? Is that him leaning over the ship? If that's Luke, where's Dack? And the front of the box doesn't mention Luke (other than Luke Skywalker's snowspeeder), it just says it comes with a Dack figure.

    The Dack body seems to be a Biggs' body, with a new head on it. The Snowspeeder looked as if it had less color than the 96' version. Can the broken laser cannon be positioned so the speeder doesn't look "crashed."

    I also don't like the packaged Luke (I guess) leaning over the snowspeeder. It doesn' look ver good IMO. I think it would have been better if the figures were packaged standing in the front (no goofy action pose) or packaged in the speeder with the canopy up.

    I guess I'll really have to see the final product in my hands to make a final judgement.

    I also noticed that there was no mention of Luke, I am going to say that he will not be included, only Dack.

    I think it look good but I really don't need another one.Would like to get the Dack figure.

    Yes, that would be Luke laying on the wing. Dack is packed in the back end... dead. Just like in the film. Yeah... there's nothing special about the Dack figure, but you really saw little of him in the film anyhow. I think that was Hasbro's take on this. At least they didn't just stick an X-Wing pilot's body on him... note the collar on his flight suit.

    I don't really see too much of a problem on this... other than, as Wolfwood so kindly asked, can the cannon be positioned so it's not eternally in "crashed position".

    Actaully, on the bottom of the box, there is a picture of both the Luke and Dack figures, as well as the Snowspeeder in the correcto position, not crashed.

    I just found this, I still don't know why the front and sides only say Dack figure.

    1) Luke is leaning over the ship, if you squint (or enhance the images), you can see Dack "sleeping" in the gunner's seat in the Boxed Front and Boxed Left pics.

    2) Dack appears to be a new body, though it may be cobbled together from pieces of other X-wing and Snowspeeder pilot figures from POTJ and POTF2. The collar and the weird fat piping on the sleeves (as well as some other, smaller cosmetic changes) make this a snowspeeder pilot outfit as opposed to the x-wing outfit.

    3) The laser cannons on the POTF2 snowspeeder pop easily in and out of the energizer where this POTJ one is "smashed". I am pretty sure it's meant to be totally fixable.

    4) Luke is supposed to be digging in the snowspeeder for his grappling gun and thermal grenade, so the posed Luke may not be fantastic, but it's trying to be accurate.

    5) I can't wait for this set, the POTF2 one is pretty nifty, but the giant cannon on the back of that made it disappointing, while this new one has the normal cannon - no spring-loaded mega-cannon.

    If you look on the bottom of the box as mentioned in the above quote...you will see the words "Includes 2 Rebel Alliance Pilots". I like the new speeder...and I plan on getting 3 of them! I love the Dack figure pack-in....who cares if he's buff...how do we know that he wasn't...afterall we only saw him in the gunner station in Luke's snowpeeder! Anyway...I like both figures so far...especially since Hasbro didn't include that goofy POTJ Luke X-wing Pilot figure....YUK!!! I love it that the speeder can be crashed or displayed undamaged! EXCELLENT!!!!

    Yes...I would agree that the new speeder looks better than the POTF2 one...especially the harpoon gun. I think that the smaller one on the POTJ is very nice and looks accurate. That was one thing on the POTF2 speeder that I thought was way too big. Nice change HASBRO!

    I think the set looks totally cool! I can't wait for this to come out. Hopefully it'll come with both Luke and Dack, but just Dack would be just fine with me.

    Bring it on Hasbro!
