    Heh, probably not any more vulnerable than other speeder bikes. This is from TLJ btw. Or at least it's for the Canto Bight planet. Who knows if it will actually be used in an action scene or not. Might just end up like the First Order Snowspeedre or the Jakku Speeder thing and be scene briefly in the background.

    LOL, I can even picture the pikes on the speeder rotating upward in landing mode like typical Mandorian vehicles, but it doesn't seem to be that way...oh well, too bad.

    I'd be interested to see what the (upcoming) Cross-Sections book has to offer on what practical use the pikes on the speeder are for other than sirens.

    Not feeling the design of this thing. Looks....over-designed, for lack of a better term. I'm ok with the portion that looks like a fusion between a speeder bike and a STAP, but then the design loses me completely with the stripped down TIE Interceptor wings. Oh, well. Canto is looking to be the cliched, obligatory cantina-esque sequence anyways, so I'll probably pass on anything having to do with that whole part of the movie. Well, maybe not the giant cat-horse, heh.

    Canto is supposed to be this upper society class planet so maybe there's either little crime there and/or the police aren't as intimidating looking. I suppose their role there is to maintain a certain level of peace/security on that world and to make sure it stays that way.

    Reminds me of the Lothal Imperial Speeder crossed with the wing connectors or pylons or whatever they're called of Mining Guild Tie fighter(which was something like the old McQ concept Tie concept with the same skinny wing connectors) but with Interceptor-like shaped wings. Maybe a lil bit of Maul's Bloodfin speeder thrown in as well.

    At least it is something different for those that like to complain that every thing is a rehash.

    I like the look of this!

    Its a reaonably unique looking speeder, and a welcome one for SW (imo).

    I'm seriously considering picking this one up!

    Saw better pics on Force.net. Those upper pikes look really wicked. I'm probably expecting some parents to call out some potential safety issues with those. We'll see as I'm certain it's passed safety QA, but in that case scenario, we may be staring at something that's not going to hang around that shelf long.

    That's my question as well. I skipped the walker thing and the speeder bike from TFA and I'll be skipping this as well. Even if it is in the film, I don't really like the looks of it.

    I'd like to exercise my right to free speech, but I really don't have anything to say at the moment.

    You came in that thing?! You're braver than I thought!
    Luke, at that speed will we be able to pull out in time?
    Back door huh? Good idea.
