I think it could be done. I'm sure the tooling cost is the main factor but if they broke it down into "ready to assemble" parts like this...coeli said:They could definately pull it off, I think the only thing that would stop this thing from being correctly sized is how it will fit into the box. Sounds stupid, I know, but the packaging and shipping containers are already sized with the rest of the line(V wings, Jedi Starfighters and what not)so they can't upsize the box(at least that is what we have heard in the past, although they have re-sized the BP packaging to suit their needs)
To me, the main body, or sphere is going to be the hardest part to get to 'fit' into the box.
Could this just be a repack of the smaller wind up droid? Or is this an SKU for a larger vehicle?Since1978 said:How about some vehicle love from the WalMart computers:

This corresponds nicely with another rumor on the list!
If I'm not mistaken, the Commerce Guild was part of the CIS.Rune_Haako said:
After a long silence, my source got back to me and quoted that the price in the WalMart computers was $19.76, and that they should be part of the Medium Vehicle assortment. That seems to end any thought that they would be in the Titanium or similar series.jediraven82 said:
Great news, IMO. Pretty much confirmed to be a decent size afterall. Now if only we could get that Tri-Droid enlarged and in the $20 box.Since1978 said:After a long silence, my source got back to me and quoted that the price in the WalMart computers was $19.76, and that they should be part of the Medium Vehicle assortment.

Ugh! That's the droid I heard it might be. Man I hope not. What a waste!! I don't think we need this dwarf version at all, and certainly not before the movie version!Nactous said:With all due respect, we dont know if it is indeed the Homing Spider droid, it could still possibly be this one.
Hasbro did say they wanted to do some Republic Commando droids after all.
Granted, we should probably get the Homing Spider Droid first as it is pretty iconic, but I'd much rather see the HSD done in a larger scale then I think could be given to us, in the medium vehicles line.Mr_Ed said:I'm hoping for the movie version as well. The RC one is fine, but we should get the movie spider first. It is pretty iconic of the CIS.
