    Would You Buy The Hoth Echo Base Ice Laser Drill?

    I am continuing my 3 3/4" vehicle thread series.

    This will discuss ONLY the vehicle in the title of the thread (in this case The Hoth Echo Base Ice Laser Drill from ESB).

    I will cover several unmade vehicles for the action figures per week, choosing them from a rotating schedule through the movies and the Expanded Universe.

    I'll order it TPM, AOTC, ROTS, ANH, ESB, ROTJ, EU, and then keep going back through the order in that manner.

    So here I'm only asking you if you'd buy The Hoth Echo Base Ice Laser Drill?

    This vehicle is only noticed on the edge of the first scene I'm displaying a picture of below. I never noticed it in 30 years but JediTricks pointed it out to me when I was looking for the Hoth Echo Base Personnel Carrier.

    This drill was never used by Luke Skywalker in a cut scene that I'm aware of - I think the picture on the right (below) was made for a publicity shot.

    It could go in a battle pack with perhaps a pilot like Wedge or Hobbie in Hoth Pilot gear and an astromech or Hoth Gonk Droid.

    I don't think this vehicle would be deployed as a weapon at all, but is rather more like a construction tool.

    Do you want this made?

    How do you think it would sell if produced, at each price point ($15 or $24)?

    Seems like your running out of ship options.

    The only way I would pick this up is if it was a pack-in with something. Snowspeeder, battle pack, etc. I woud not buy this if it was sold seperately. So I guess the answer is no. I don't think suggesting they put it in a battle pack is a good way to determine if a vehicle is wanted. If the figures with it sucks, then it will sit on the shelf.
    Nowhere in your incoherent ramblings did you come anywhere close to the answer. Thanks to you, everyone in this room is now stupider having heard you. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul. -Billy Madison-

    I'd buy it. But I like transports/accessories because of their utility.

    I don't see the pic either. Must be the dillusions of grandeur again.

    I like this thing, so yes, I want it. If Hasbro expands the figure and vehicle line beyond just Clone Wars and the one TRU Legacy exclusive, then I think this would be a good fit for that line with a Luke figure without the head wrap.
    Got a question for Hasbro? Ask it here!

    Wow, we really are scraping the bottom of the barrel here. I don't recall ever seeing this thing. I need to see some photos, but I'm pretty sure that my vote will be no.

    i'd buy it if in a battlepack but not on it's own....doesn't have enough play value or for that matter even screen time to warrant dropping the $$ on.
    Looking for CW 2010 Sidious and TX-20...if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    It would have to come with a pack in. Then, I would say YES.
    One way to out think people is to make them think you think they'll think what you are not really trying to get them to think what you think.

    The Hoth Echo Base Laser Ice Drill won. 10-4.

    So here's a small one for Hasbro to make.

    The new ESB vehicle poll will be in the new vintage forum.
