Hailfire Droid & General Grievous - TRU

New pictures have emerged of the new TRU exclusive Hailfire Droid with General Grievous, pictures are up here.

General Grievous why? Why not a Battle Droid or a Super Battle Droid?

Thoughts on this pack?

I like the blue deco on the Hailfire vehicle. Will match the AAT that's coming out soon.

Another definite maybe. I've needed a Hailfire for awhile (I keep passing on them and when I go back they aren't there). Grievous, well at least he looks cool.

I have the TAC one and don't really care for it. But I really like this blue version but I don't need another Grievous. What should I do?

Oh boy oh boy, so this is Hasbro 'new' marketing strategy this year...recombination exclusives? What's next, a landspeeder reissue with Cantina Han Solo?

Re: Hailfire Droid & General Grievous - TRU

Grievous is a poor choice for this. He makes the Hailfire Droid look too small standing next to it. Any other droid would have been better.

From the package it looks like they only put two lightsabers in despite the loose picture showing 4. I wonder if they will even include Grievous' alternate arms and gun or this is another hasbro cheap out like the cantina tables. If this is $30 it wouldnt be worth it for a $20 vehicle and incomplete $6.99-7.99 figure. But then again this is TRU and they charge $25 for $20 vehicles.

Re: Hailfire Droid & General Grievous - TRU

Wow, you're right! It does loo puny next to him.

Like with the V-Wing and clone pilot, I have no interest in this.

BTW, I like how they say oversized wheels...it almost makes it sound like they're inaccurate

Wow! I love the hailfire repaint!
Although I would have liked a Battle Droid repaint to come with this instead of Grievous.
But It's ok, you can never have enough grievous'!

Why Grievous, this is an easy pass for me. The Hailfire is not big on my list and I allready have one.

I like the Hailfire Droid but not the paint job. Did not care for the blue tank either. The V-Wing is tempting since I never bought one. But I just know TRU will charge $45 for it.

Re: Hailfire Droid & General Grievous - TRU

The Hailfire Droid looks great. I'm glad that the blue with match with the existing color scheme of the other CIS vehicles. Not sure why it comes with Grievous though. It should have come with a Super Battle Droid or Battle Droid repaint of some sort.

Re: Hailfire Droid & General Grievous - TRU

what everybody seems to be forgetting is that the hailfire DROID was a droid and therefore did not need a droid pilot. Same thing with the vulture droid and droid tri-fighters.

I guess Grievous is just there to lead the ship into battle, or follow, being the coward he is.

Maybe in 2009 you wish might come true


If it's reasonably priced here I might consider it but a Battle Droid would've been nicer.

Re: Hailfire Droid & General Grievous - TRU

Glad I held off on purchasing the previous Hailfire Droids, because I do like this paint scheme, but am not sure about Grievous as a pack-in figure.

I got the last release of this droid but I'm glad people will have a chance to get it again, because let me tell you this things is awesome! It really evens the battle field, did you see this thing take out a AT-TE on Attack of the Clones? Just totally destroyed it!

I'll be passing on this. It looks waaay to cartoony to fit in with the one from last year. That, and I don't need that figure.

Re: Hailfire Droid & General Grievous - TRU

From HansHideout

A few weeks ago, you sent out pictures of a pair of upcoming TRU exclusive Clone Wars vehicles with pack-in figures (Hailfire Droid and V-Wing). Any update on when these are scheduled to appear on the shelves?

** They are scheduled to appear on-shelf around April next year. It's possible they could be out in March but April should be the latest.
