A quick look on Hasbro's new Snowpeeder!



It has been ages of anticipation and decades of waiting and we've finally got a Snowpeeder that is truely in scale with the 3.75" figures. Of course I won't even try to compare these to the new Big AT-AT....everybody knows that it is technically impossible to do a 3.75" scale AT-AT! Anyway, the Snowspeeder looks excellent compared to its past versions. Those were touted as being too big for the 3.75" figures so I guess this new one is exactly the size the fans wanted it to be.....


The front of the packaging....

The back of the packaging....

Fully assembled....with its flaps up!

Hmmm, never realised that including Luke, I already have 3 Snowspeeder pilots thus far! I guess there's no use for VOTC Dack Ralter to leave his plastic prison now! Hehehe....

Everybody's fightin' to be Luke's gunner/harpoon-man!

The gunner even has his own control lever!

I like the fact that Luke can insert his harpoon gun in an allocated slot next to him....

To cut it short, if ya' ask me on my verdict: This Snowspeeder is a NO-BRAINER MUST GET! Word around town is (I live in KL, Malaysia by the way!) that the Snowspeeder's kinda scarce nowadays with most of the collectors going for this one first before deciding on the AT-AT. So there you have it!

Agree with the size. With the figure, it actually look to scale.

I've yet to find Luke & Dack figure.
Can't have the Snowspeeder without the pilot.

Thks cowboy75!

>>Rafys....the Snowspeeder Luke is shortpacked by Hasblow (as usual)...so it's gonna be quite a hunt to find him around KL. A friend of mine was lucky to have found him (only ONE unit!) amongst a freshly-stacked aisle! Imagine that! And I think Dack is pretty abundant (for now) at most TRUs...
