    I am only wrong when I am incorrect.

    I think kids might go for the Turbo Tank. I remember as a kid, anything with wheels, that I could scoot along the floor was awesome in my book. I love the AT-AT, but it the legs were really difficult to work with.

    I would like to see a brand-new, AT-ST. It seems to appear more frequently in the SW Galaxy. That is just my thoughts on it.

    I'll be curious to see how it launches the speeder and if the BARC speeders I already own will be compatible.

    The artistic rendering of this makes it look stubby, shorter (front to back, not top to bottom) than it should be.

    That's weird how the front crows nest isn't extended up, I can't imagine them doing this vehicle without that feature.

    I wonder if they're recycling the flywheel BARC toy for this, seems easier than launching a wheelless speeder and easier than making a new one.

    Looks drastically unscaled too. There is one "reference shot" here - where it looks like the box isn't much bigger than the ARC fighter....

    From what I have been reading the dimensions of the box are about 18" wide by 10" high. That would suggest to me that pegger is right, this baby is gonna way smaller than it probably should be. I would rather the thing be bigger and skip the launching speeder (cause I'm more for scale than gimmicks) and like jt said, where's the crow's nest? I'm pretty disapointed so far since this is one vehicle I was looking forward to. I guess I'll have to wait and see what Toy Fair brings.

    "Smaller than it should be"??? This vehicle dwarfs the AT-AT in the canon, so the toy would have to be the size of a sofa to be the "size it should be". However, as for toy sizes, it looks like it's smaller than the AT-TE, is that unreasonably small? I dunno, it's already way out of scale from necessity, but how much toy do you guys want from this thing? My guess is that launcher gimmick is going to eat up a lot of interior space underneath, and the rest will be a box on wheels. If it's 3/4 the size of the AT-TE, we're talking about something a bit bigger than the Republic Gunship, which makes it kid friendly but not imposing.

    I'm glad to know it's coming for sure, but I'll reserve judgment until seeing actual pics. Who am I kidding - of course I'm gonna get this!

    Here it is in ROTS for scale reference. Also, it looks "stubby" here as well, and the picture on the box reflects that. I didn't expect it to be completely in scale; I'm just glad to have it.

    As for the other stuff - another ARC-170? Hell, I barely have room for the three I have. It looks to be an Imperial variant though, which would be cool. But I'd rather have an Imperial V-wing. I might skip the Anakin with can-cell since I already have the individual parts, but we'll see.

    That would be a cool sofa...if somewhat uncomfortable...
