    Yep, the head can go forward more. I didn't think to try it until I saw the vulture droid's picture in the Complete SW Encyclopedia, then I tried it and it worked. When you push the button to pop up the head, it goes into the configuration seen in my pictures, but you can move it forward manually; it kind of snaps into place, so it's not a huge range of poses, but it more or less does what's seen in the films so I'm fine with it.

    Thanks for the info. Think you could take another pic with the head all the way forward?

    Part of me wants to grab it, part of me feels like it's not complete enough what with the wings not sliding closed.

    Sure, I grabbed two more shots: one with the head almost all the way forward, and then one completely forward.

    Where are the wings closed in the film? I thought they were like how they are on this version.

    Thanks for the shots.

    In Ep 1, the wings are seen to slide completely closed so that they hide the lasers and other greebles in the very middle. The Action Fleet and Titanium Series both represent this.

    I ended up picking up the vehicle at Target for $20. IMO, it's not quite delivering on the pricepoint, but close. Lightweight, good sculpting, fully transforms (almost, as I previously mentioned, the wings don't slide down to create an oval shape a la Ep 1). Decent paint but no wear, no red engines. Wings/legs don't want to stay in place in either mode too well, and no stand so it wobbles a lot in flier mode, spreads out in walker mode. Head springs up and looks around, very nifty, and can click forward for full walker pose. Missiles are well-concealed and nicely sculpted for once. If the wings fully closed like in Ep 1, and the joints were tighter, and there was wear paint, it'd be a good deal, but as is it's only ok.

    The head spring is a funny thing, it springs to the flight-height properly so the head is still parallel to the body, and you have to manually click both sides of the neck forward 1 click to get the walker-mode pose, but if you hit the spring button with the ship facing down instead of horizontal, it springs into that lower position on the neck joint but not the head joint, smacking the head into your fingers.

    Well I spotted one of these at Walmart earlier this evening, but it looked like someone used the box as a punching bag...the box was torn to bits, crushed on one end, and looked like it had been opened. I asked an associate if there were anymore in the back, but they said no. The toy itself may have been ok inside, but I just don't feel comfortable buying a product that someone has completely assaulted.

    That's funny, the first day I saw these in person, I bought one at Target and then hit WM, the WM had one and someone had ripped the inner tray out of the box to inspect it, left it sitting twist-tied to the tray on the shelf.
