    The SSG BATTLE OF THE MACHINES Round 1 - Fight 16!!!

    It's Zam Wessel's Speeder versus Anakin Skywalker's in the final Preliminary Round of SSG's Battle of the Machines!

    And it starts now!

    Zam Wessel's flashy green and yellow speeder holds one action figure in its opening cockpit, and features a detailed interior with adjustable steering controls and foot pedals. But the craft's most ingenious play feature is its crash 'n bash action that lets you smash the front end of the speeder in, with engine panels flying off, simulating a crash just like in the movie! Each side operates independently, so you decide the amount of damage that is done during the dangerous work of that of a bounty hunter! At the press of a button, the vehicle repairs itself!

    Anakin Skywalker can't be faulted for picking just as easily an impressive craft. His yellow, open-top sportster features a detailed interior that seats two Jedi on a mission! But Jedi missions are rather dangerous and this craft shows some indication of occupational hazards with its own crash 'n bash feature that lets you crumple in the front end, causing pieces of the bodywork to go flying in two directions! A touch of a button and your air speeder is almost restored "fully new" and you're ready to race and chase through Coruscant's skylanes again!

    Which vehicle will win to go on to the Quarterfinal challenges to determine what Star Wars craft will be the Ultimate Best Hasbro Star Wars ship of all time?

    You decide now!

    I think Zam's speeder is the better of the two. Anakins reminds me of something you scrap for the parts. I think Anakins speeder would be more of a match for Luke's landspeeder. Of cours thats just my opinion.

    From the looks of the poll so far, this one's a runaway.

    The Zam speeder is so much better than Ani's. It's sleeker, has a better color scheme, and has a enclosed cockpit. While I don't have either of them, I am planning on getting the Zam speeder today at the KMart sale. The Ani one can wait until it goes on clearance. I've heard from several people that it's very difficult to fit two figures easily, while the Zam fits much better in hers.

    I give Kudos to Hasbro on both of these, though. I'm glad they tried to keep the cost down while still providing a good basic vehicle for collectors.

    , You're runnin' out of toys to participate, aren't you, Celchu

    As much as a minority it seems, I like Anakin's a lot. The open cockpit, the right speed, and the really gonzo colour just jump out at me more than Wesell's. I don't like her anyway.

    Another vote between two vehicles I have never seen. In any case I pick Anakin's Speeder since of the two that is the one I plan to buy.

    I don't have either, but I really liked Ani's speeder. I had good speed capabilities, and is such a gonzo color. Seriously though, I didn't like Zam's for some reason. It just didn't look right to me

    Ha!!!!!! With judgment like that what could look normal?

    Lightbulb Zam's Speeder Takes It!!!

    I have to give it to Zam's Speeder. If you look at sheer pity, you have to give it to her because she looses an arm. Plus, it's just cooler looking and seems to handle better. The toys do fit easier into the Zam speeder as well. Four reasons to vote for Zam.

    I bought "Annie's" Speeder yesterday,i was plesantley surprised with the "crash & burn" feature and more than miffed at the seateing arrangements.How the hell do you get a figure in there?Let alone two!!!!!!!!!!.I think Hasbro is setting us up for an Anakin and Obi-wan speeder figures(MAN! thats cheap).
    I've yet to get Zam's speeder but Double damage,enclosed cockpit,adjustable controls and a foxy owner sounds better to me.
    My vote is for Zam.Anakins speeder is nothing but an ode to American Graffiti.Zam's has that Tie/Droid Fighter-esque shape!

    I like zam's the best.Anakins looks more like an air taxi or something.
