    VT, that is super bad, that's one I *hope* I'll be able to find when it comes out... wait, that's a 2002 car! I guess now that it's 2003, I need to look into the new line of HW to see if there are any other lovelies worth purchasing as well as trying to pick up the ones I've missed from last year.

    I have the Japanese Hot Wheels BTTF Delorean as well as the Johnny Lightning one, each has its charms though they're fairly different from each other. However, neither can hold a candle to the 1/18th one I got for x-mas last month, that thing kicks monster bootay - opening hood, working gullwing doors, fold-down wheels, Mr Fusion, and tons of interior and underside details. I immediately ran out the next day and bought it a plastid display case.

    BTW, after saving that pic to my HD in my Hot Wheels folder, I found this 2002 pic that I liberated from the Mattel site last year (April 20th).

    I like my transportation like I like my women: hairy, grumpy, and horny.

    Put me down for a Bantha.

    Way to much info there, Glitch . The way the weather is up in the north-eastern states, give me a Snowspeeder. Any other time I'd like to go around in Zam's ride, with that, nearly all glass cockpit. The veiw would be aewsome. Not to mention the SPEED.

    Well, in the wake of the new SW film and accompanying AFs - I think I would have to chose the Jedi Starfighter for the moment. Although its colour scheme would go better with the Christmas palette the cockpit pop-ability would be ideal for the unseasonably clement and bright weather we've been having here in the microclimate of Bournemouth, and I could still get to disparage the poor and styleless from the comfort of my cockpit.

    Furthermore, I could modify the headband thing to include a radio mic and record my new songs as inspiration strikes me.

    And as for traffic jams, i would just deploy the ol hyperdrive ring and BOOOOOOM

    Of course for my usual transport I would be using the Senatorial G-type bomber wing from the opening of the film, except my one would have much more astromechs and anti Zam measures I would also fly it illegally low so people could hear the wonderful purr for miles, and an unlimited supply of sonic charges to give it that wow factor. I would deploy them over radio stations that weren't playing Soul or Hip Hop

    I still live in Theed darlings

    I don't think the AT-TE's legs are big enough to stomp a car, the AT-TE is much smaller than an AT-AT and I think the feet are only around 3 feet tall or so.

    That scan was on their site showing off the entire 2002 HW line, it was this crazy Javascript/Style Sheets dealy that I had to analyze for a few minutes before I could extract the source image cleanly.

    The Japanese Hot Wheels Delorean is the better of the 2 mainly based on the wheels and coloring issues on the rear deck, though it's not "perfect" like the 1/18th is. If I see another of these, I'll pick it up for you if I can afford it, I got 2 of the KITT ones but only 1 of the Delorean when I bought these.

    I figured it had to be out now, it's from the 2002 line. This probably means it's rare now but won't be by spring. What's weird is that even if Mead OKed the current paint job, Mattel will repaint it like 5 times over the next 7 years.
