Reminds me of what my dad did for me on my 8th birthday.Yep, its the only thing we bought on Force Friday, we let the boy pick out a vehicle and its the one he wanted. I think he did well.
Dude, your dad ROCKS!Reminds me of what my dad did for me on my 8th birthday.
We pulled up to a Toys R Us, he turned around to me in the back seat, and pulled out a $100 bill.
He said, "You can pick out anything you want in here as long as it stays within $100."
Of course, I bolted to the Star Wars aisle. I honestly think that's when I got the majority of my POTF2 figures.

I think my dad's pretty ******.
This isn't the only time he's done cool stuff for his kids.
He loved Star Wars as a kid, but had gotten rid of his toys long before I was born.
He seems pretty excited for TFA so I'm taking him for my second showing.
Maybe if the scenes have a little bit of footage from the film bookending the scenes (showing us where the placement is), someone can do an edit and put them back into the film.I hope they do a Director's Cut. I'm sure I'll appreciate the scenes alone reguardless, but Id rather have them integrated into the film.
That vehicle with Finn was actually in the background of the film too. Not to mention it was in that promotional YouTube 360 video with Unkar's thugs driving it.It was nice to see this vehicle in the movie, if only for a few seconds. Unlike the walker and the vehicle that came with Finn.
I did not see it after my second viewing, maybe a third is needed, lol. I was trying to looking around everywhere at all the figures and faces, I think I spotted constable Zuvio but not entirely sure.That vehicle with Finn was actually in the background of the film too.

You've got all of one sec to see him, now try again:grin:. And for some reason he's slightly blurred with dim lighting around him if i remember correctly.I think I spotted constable Zuvio but not entirely sure.
Hah, seriously, there's so much empty space in the box. The box art is great, though.I'd never seen one of these in person until mine came in the mail; I was a bit surprised at how large the box was, I was expecting something smaller. I love the artwork on it.
Really enjoying this guy! Couple more pics:Picked one up off of Amazon's Warehouse Deals for $17 and change. Condition was listed as "Very Good," so if other folks opt to pick one up here's about what you can expect to receive:
So the box clearly got crushed on one side, but the toy itself was brand-new, unopened, and in great shape. As for my thoughts on the speeder, I really dig it! The sculpt is really accurate to how it appears in the design works, and the size seems pretty accurate too (maybe just a smidge smaller than the "real" thing). This speeder would have been perfect if Hasbro had included a more accurately scaled megablaster that you could swap out the firing-missile one for, like how they did with the Vintage Collection/SOTDS Snowspeeder. I'll don't think I'll ever use the megablaster, but since that's still an accurate look I'm pretty satisfied with that. What I did find useful though, was to install the base of the gun into the speeder. That way when you put a figure into the second seat, the gun base acts as a stopper and helps keep them from sliding out of their seat.
Really cool vehicle; I think 30 bucks is way too much for what you get, but for 18 bucks I'd definitely recommend it to people who like the design.
