OK, I'm starting to feel like just a pusher for Ghengis Ska right now, but I found the latest Hasbro mini playset today, and it's really great for use with SWminis.

As a toy, I have to say, this is pretty awful. The tank unfolds to become a playset, and it's terrible. It's boring, and the mechanism to open it is poorly designed. Oh, for the playsets of my youth....

But I think it works well with SW minis. It may or may not be to scale, I couldn't tell from the 2 seconds of screen time it had. But since the ROTS set includes tons of clones, battle droids, and several wookies, not to mention the AT-RT, I thought it was somewhat of a no-brainer to pick this up. Hailfire droids, speeders, and an AT-ST are on the way in a few weeks, this guy seemed like a must-have.

That does work well with the minis. Thanks for the pics, I'm gonna have to pic that up. I think a repaint and some drybrushing would do wonders for this thing.

I saw it the other day, and put it back, it looks woefully underscale for a Star Wars purist like myself.
The HAVw A6 Juggernaut is suppossed to be 49.4 m long or 24 inchs if you go by 1 inch = 2 meters which is the "RPG" scale, but if you go by mini scale (which oddly seems to keep D&D scale) is 162 ft (love the cross section books, tell you everything) it should be 32 inchs long.

Between the just punny scale, DoE and Universe comming out in two weeks, I put it back, may pick it up on mark down but for now didn't have the money and is just the wrong size :( ...

Law,

Seems Like it Could Work well for a "Generic" Sci-Fi Vehicle in any Event...

Ghengis Ska,


Universe coming out in Two Weeks? What is That?

So will Universe have Other Smaller Minis as well or are these Going to be Just the Large Vehicles? Random?

It's going to be like the other SWM expansions -- packs of randomly distributed, pre-painted plastic minis. Each pack will have 1 rare or very rare, 2 uncommons, and 4 commons -- and 1 will be huge. Most of the huges are uncommon-level, but some are rare. The Rancor, for example, is rare (or very rare)

I may be off by a bit, I haven't kept up, but that's basically how it will work. You will always get a huge, you will always get a R/VR. Sometimes they will be the same fig, sometimes you'll have one of each.

50 of the figs in the set are small/medium/large (small being like ewok-sized, though I can't recall if any Universe figs are small, medium being normal, large being things like Luke on his Tauntaun) and 10 are huge.

The huges, the ones I can remember, are:

AT-ST
Bantha with Tusken Raider
Rancor
Flash speeder
BARC Speeder
Hailfire droid
Reek
Acklay
Viper droid (some EU thing)

I seem to be missing one.

Anyhoo, it looks like a fun set... Check the WOTC site for more info if you're curious -- in a few weeks a gallery will probably be online showing all the minis.

You can also, of course, check Ghengis Ska's swminiinfoworld for tons more info

Law,

Thank You, that was a very Informative response, I appreciate it... Currently We do Not Have Internet at Home (Converted Home Phone to Cell)... And For Some Reason the WotC Site is Blocked From My Work Computer, so I Have Been out of the WotC loop for a While... I Remember Talking to Ghengis Ska about the Huge Sets like a year ago, but had not Heard any New Info until VERY recently from you guys... So Thanks...

L, the one you're missing is Obi-Wan on a Boga.

I can't wait to get my six cases. Neither can my credit card company.

Bloody Hell Man...! :shock: Wow... Six Cases, I am Impressed... Does this Mean You Will Be Offering Discount Rates to Your DF Compatriots on Some of the Multiples (Commons) that you End up with in Dizzying Abundance? :D :D :D :?:

Six, wow, i thought i was bad with 4... but then i plan to trade a heck of a lot of my older VR and R from the first three sets to fill in gaps in some of the smaller ones.

(there are only 6 boosters in a case)

Yeah, there's no getting around the fact that this is going to be a pricey set. I only have two cases ordered (only!) but I want to see how much I like the non-OT stuff before I go nuts. It may in the long run be cheaper to pick up the OT singles than to get whole cases.

Of course, if I'm REALLY unlucky and get no OT Huges, that ends that. If the Rancor is selling for $75 or something, I'll just buy boosters until I pull him -- worst case scenario, I can sell the singles off to get some of the money back.
