The airspeeders have this molded rubber that simulates their engines. The stuff on the front detailing of Anakin's speeder is not molded plastic engines! It's rubber! Whoa!
You smash the vehicle into something, and it crinkles up and the pannels blow off!
This works just like you'd slide missles into lauching slots before you'd fire them from a spring-loaded toy. Only you are putting them into position when you create the crash damage.
When you hit the button, everything pops back out to normal and you reinsert the blast-off pannels.
Zam's speeder is way cooler - same features, just really interesting shape and a greater effort had to go to simulating her battle damage because of the longer front end shape to her ship.
You're going to like these.
Too bad I don't have a Zam figure that will sit in the speeder. You have to wait for the second Zam figure on the blue card (with bending knee articulation). Her and the pilot Obi-Wan figure should have been out with the vehicles' release time.
Also, you may happily note that Zam's speeder is bigger than you thought it would be. These are nice sized toys!
I was thinking something a little bigger than the EU Speederbike for Zam's craft. No - it's nicely almost larger than the landspeeder (in mass) but definitely longer!
I want to still add that there's another post on this topic page: "Nice Hidden Surprises on the vehicles" or some such topic that's really about Slave One. It is a great thread and an awesome ship! Discuss that vehicle there - you're going to learn about a neat feature on the toy that none of us knew before!
