    Potential Vehicles for Toys from Episode 3 list

    Here it goes:


    RE-RELEASES:

    (confirmed) Speederbike w. Clone, Jedi (Adi Gallia rumored)
    Trade Federation Droid Fighters - possibly
    AAT Tank - likely
    (confirmed) Republic Gunship - same paint as AOTC I think.
    Hailfire Droid - maybe
    Geonosian Fighter - not too likley, but possible
    (confirmed) small spider walker droid

    NEW:

    (confirmed) Anakin's Jedi Starfighter (TIE format)
    Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter (TIE format) - likely a repaint of Anakin's but in red
    Tri-Fighter - the 6 winged (3 per side) "x-wing" is a Clone Trooper fighter (very likely)
    Clone Fighter from Cartoon Network Clone Wars (not likely)
    AT-TE - extremely likely - the best choice for "big vehicle" from ROTS
    General Grievous' Hailfire vehicle - not quite a hailfire, it also has 4 legs it can use (very likley)
    Obi-Wan's kraayt dragon - not really a kraayt, but some kind of fast, large lizard (very likely)
    Wookiee Trimaran - very likely - think Waterworld only with the smell of wet dog fur
    Wookiee dragonfly - not a beast, but a 2-man gyro-copter (very likely)
    Clone Trooper Juggernaut - large one if made to scale, like Dark Empire comics (2006?)
    Bail Organa's air speeder - a good $10-15 toy - very likley
    Clone Trooper AT-PT - pre-Empire scout walker - very likley
    Techno Union or Banking Clan (forget which) large Spider Walker Droid (likely)
    Mustafar version of small spider walker droid (likley)
    Padme's star yacht from ROTS (would be cool - hopefully done, but not likely)


    So how much will we get, and in what year will we get it?


    I'd say the re-releases will be available this year, along with 6 - 8 vehicles from the list, PLUS the AT-TE coming out sometime towards end of summer-fall, with no announcement until Comic Con and Hasbro denying it until June for some reason or another. They just do things that way for whatever reason.

    Oh, this is good. I was just working on "something" and thinking about this. I really think that I get more excited about the vehicles than the figures for some reason. I have no idea why, because I never end up with any room to display these things -- maybe it's just the chance to get so much more plastic all at once. I dunno.

    Hmm, we should try and stick some photos with these names. I'll try and do that after I finish up that other thing.

    I hope Wal-Mart changes its mind and gets vehicles in. I hate paying full price up front for these things. The only one i really want is the AT-TE

    I know what you mean! I think that it all goes back to 1978 - the first year figures were released.

    Hasbro specifically made the 3 3/4" size so that they could do playsets and vehicles.

    Buying those figures and seeing on the original cardbacks that there would be a Millennium Falcon toy and a Death Star Playset (21-backs by then, if I recall right) - I went nuts and knew this would be the coolest toy line I'd never get tired of!

    1978-79:

    X-wing
    TIE Fighter
    Landspeeder
    Millennium Falcon
    Death Star Playset
    Dewback
    Land of the Jawas Playset
    Darth Vader's TIE Fighter
    Mos Eisley Cantina Playset
    Imperial Troop Transport (actually Rebel craft, anyway....)
    ...and more

    1980-82

    Snowspeeder
    Slave-One
    AT-AT Snow Walker
    Rebel Transport
    AT-ST Scout Walker
    Twin Pod Cloud Car
    Cloud City cardboard Playset
    Imperial Attack Base (Hoth trenches)
    Wampa
    TaunTaun
    Turret and Probot Playset (Hoth)
    Dagobah Playset (Yoda's hut and the Tree-cave)
    ....and more


    1983-85

    Desert Skiff Vehicle
    Ewok Catapult
    B-wing Fighter
    The Ewok Village Playset
    TIE Interceptor
    A-wing Fighter
    Endor Speederbike
    Rancor
    Ewok Glider
    Y-Wing Fighter
    Jabba the Hutt's Throne
    Imperial Shuttle Tyderium spaceship
    ....and more

    1999-2001


    Naboo N-1 Starfighter
    Anakin's Podracer
    Sebulba's Podracer
    JarJar Bink's Kaadu
    Trade Federation Droid Fighters
    Theed Hanger Playset
    AAT Tank
    Queen Amidala's Royal Starship
    Opee Sea Killer
    Darth Maul's Sith Speeder
    Theed Generator Duel Playset
    Imperial TIE Bomber
    ....and more

    2002-2004

    Anakin's airspeeder
    Zam Wessel's airspeeder
    Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi Starfighter
    Jango Fett's Slave-One
    Nexu
    Acklay
    Genosis Arena Playset
    Reek
    Old Republic Clone Trooper Gunship
    Inter-Galactic Banking Clan Hailfire Droid
    Sovereign System of Geonosis starfighter
    small Spider Droid
    ....and more


    Dude! This stuff MADE the Star Wars collections! Without vehicles, everyone would have appreciated either the all-self-contained Galactic Heroes type of collectibles, or the Unleashed Scale version (maybe with poseability) - or the 12" line would have had to have upped the ante and have come in stronger than it's ever been able to (14" Vader, Ultimate Jango Fett, and a few others aside).

    Over everything I can remember in collecting, I CLEARLY recall the days I got the Death Star Playset, the Millennium Falcon, definitely the AT-AT, and the Ewok Village and the Y-wing fighter. I can tell you what store or which relative provided the toy, even the time of day it was when I opened it, how many figures I had to put inside of it, and exactly what the weather was like the day the toy came home to me!

    The vehicles make a profound impact on the 3 3/4" line. There's no denying that. Those not collecting them truly miss out! (especially if they aren't opening them and adding loose figures to their new vehicles fresh out of the box!

    Hmm, we should try and stick some photos with these names. I'll try and do that after I finish up that other thing.
    Great idea!

    VERY MINOR SPOILERS

    There's no V-19s in ROTS, that's already been stated; in this one, the clones zip around in those ARC-170s, the ones that look like X-wings, three clones in each. The Tri-Fighter is on the side of the Confederacy, and is usually prefaced with the word Droid. It releases buzz droids that ruin the opposition's ships, as seen in the LEGO set.

    Nothing in the line-up is confirmed until Hasbro says so, or we see pictures, so don't get too excited. This is what I bet we'll see:

    *Anakin's Starfighter (the only confirmed one)
    *Obi-Wan's Starfighter
    *General Grievous's Starfighter
    *ARC-170 Clone Fighter
    *Droid Tri-Fighter
    *Wookiee Dragonfly
    *Speeder Bike
    *Juggernaut (if we're lucky)
    *AT-TE (if it's even in this one)
    *Bail Organa's Speeder
    *Republic Scout Walker

    We sure got a crapload of vehicles in 2002-2003, I'm assuming we'll get as many (and likely more) this and next year, plus many more playsets.

    Looks like a pretty solid list!
    You'll be sorry, Pee-Wee Herman!

    JabbaJohnL, on the figure list, it says AT-TE Gunner for a figure, so I would guess it is in the movie.

    Ok.. I must be missing something.. Dont you guys remeber at CC during the Hasbro Q&A thing someone (Tycho? (cant remeber) )asked the question about the AT-TE and they said no way becuase it would be "to costly to make". Not to mention that they would probaby be super sellers..
    And after thats when I met PF, Steve and Tycho.

    Anyways... Im all for Clone stuff, even though a "Clone Turbo Tank" (Juggernaut) would be nice it would most likely be to expensive, I do like the other AT-PT.

    On another note- I know Tycho will have no problem ( ) but I sure hope hasbro will have a lot more clones released this time around, the new one looks good except for the shoulders, ( http://www.galactichunter.com/absolu...3733&zoneid=12 ) Hasbro did assure us that there would be a lot of clones.. If not im gonna be really ****ed.
    hurray for birthdays!

    Matt, the Clone has an action-feature (squeezing the legs causes a "quick draw") - so that's what's up with the shoulder.

    And when I asked my question at Comic Con, they said it would be costly, but they would reconsider doing it if the vehicle turned up in Episode 3.

    SPOILER - SLIGHTLY

    In the storyboards I read, at Republic bases, the perimeters are secured by surrounding the compounds with something like 20 AT-TE's on patrol. They are mobile gun platforms after all.

    JabbaJohnL: I think you are wrong - that the ARC-170's are the tri-fighters and that the ships that release the buzzsaw droids are different and more stingray shaped - and nothing "tri" about them. The 3 wings on each side of the ARC-170's should be where they get the tri-fighter nickname from.

    But I have no proof. I'm just guessing, OK?

    If you could post a link to the Lego set pictures, JabbaJohn, that will help a lot.

    Legos are a great way to use previews to get spoilers.

    I would really like to see the clone scout walker (http://www.rebelscum.com/photo.asp?i...im/0004994.jpg) I think if made if would be semi cheap and really cool.
    And it might have an exclusive clone!! (Im a sucker for cool exculisve figs)
