Thought you all would want to see this. I guess it is now official. This was reported on rebelscum.com.

I'm all for the big vehicles, but the turbo tank is just bland. The AT-TE was fracking amazing, the BMF was amazing, the Turbo Tank is just whatever.

I'll wait till I see one out of the box to decide, on my money's fate.

As will I wait to see one out of the box, but we shouldn't have to wait long what with Toy Fair coming in the next month. Smile Yeah.

Can't wait.

It certainly has a plethora of special features, but it still looks a bit bland. Basically, it's a giant shoebox with wheels. I'm not sure this will have the same kind of selling power that the AT-TE and BMF had--especially since those vehicles had a long history of demand behind them.

Of course, the economy will hopefully be well on the mend by the holidays, so people may be more inclined to buy the tank.

Well the tank has been on many people's wish lists since Attack of the Clones, so hopefully it sells well enough to keep the large vehicle line going.

I have to agree, it does look a bit bland, but I still think that I will be "forced" to help keep the line going by purchasing it.

No, but seriously, it could have been better, but I think that it will still look nice next to my AT-TE or within my Kashyyk diorama. Smile

Went and ordered one from Big Bad Toy Store, yes it's about $20 more depending on where you get it, but without a firm release date these might be tough to find.
