Over at entertainmentearth.com thay have pre-order up for this set which is included in wave 5.

Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol Battlepack

I assume that it wil be similar to the Trechery on Saleucami set from 2007 consisting of 2 Hoth flavored bikes and their pilot/drivers.

Ah, thus is born the "white-out" trend. (apparently, the super-stealth Royal Guard put us over the top with "shadow" trend).

Seriously though, these should look fairly decent, I would think. A bit gimmicky, but what isn't recently in the Hasbro Star Wars line?

I saw those titaniums just the other day. I can't believe I didn't think of that. Were probably getting two VOTC snowtroopers on white repainted speederbikes,(without corrected handlebars

Yeah, no doubt.
Still, I like the concept and I'll buy a couple at least. The Titanium version does look cool IMO and I'll be glad to add that to my Imperial army.

Re: 2008 Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol Battlepack

I just saw the Titanium today and though I'm fairly against the trend of mixing and matching colors eith existing products, I will definitely buy this because the thought of a couple scout snowtroopers flying past the Blizzard Force for some advanced recon is pretty cool to me.

Re: 2008 Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol Battlepack

Does anyone remember that picture from the old cross sections book that had a picture of a scout trooper decked out in cold weather gear and flying around on Hoth? I'd like it if the figure were based on that design, but since Hasbro's already pushed out a regular snowtrooper on the bike it seems for certain we'll get that.

Re: 2008 Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol Battlepack

what the heck ?, there is no way they would be able to use speeder bikes on Hoth First of all because as every one knows they had to either use a tawn tawn or snow speeder or AT ST

Well, they DID have trouble adapting them to the cold, ya know?

Also, anyone remember on the Troops short, didn't they have sandies on speeder bikes? And AT-ST's wandering around in the background? Only a matter of time...

Re: 2008 Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol Battlepack

Awesome idea for a BP. I wish they would do something to make the speeder bikes look more adapted to the cold weather, but they'll probably just paint them white like the Titanium.

And what's wrong with that? I just makes sense that they'd use the same equipment. Does it get your panties all bunched up that there was an AT-AT on Endor?

Hey now, the only panties I see bunched are yours, my friend.
My post in no way conveyed support or disdain. In short, I'm ambivalent. Or perhaps just apathetic.

Bah, I don't care, as long as a dissenting opinion has a little thought behind it. Apathy I can respect. It's just plain dumb that I have a problem with.

Not sure of the cross-section book, but there was one shown in the Worlds Of Star Wars (DK Publishing).

Regardless, I agree it should have been the biker scout armor featured instead of the blizzard force costume.

Yeah yeah, but clearly you want to fight.
So let's get into it, heh heh. All I was saying is, if they're gonna start coming up with "just off camera" BP's, then the Tatooine one would be great. AND, it's another way for them to recycle that beloved ATST again.

Re: 2008 Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol Battlepack

If the set comes out looking good especially corrected handlebars I'd just imagine this was a patrol on some other cold icy planet. There weren't even any Imperial troops on the ground during the Battle of Hoth until the battle was won. Those troops stayed in the AT-ATs for most of it.

Ah good. Marquees of Queensbury rules. Should be a smashing good match. Best since John L. Sullivan.

Re: 2008 Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol Battlepack

I don't really see this as gimmicky. At least not as bad as all the "shadow" crap.

Anyway, the Hoth Battle is hands down my favorite moment in the Star Wars films and I have no trouble believing that there were some speeder bikes whizzing about somewhere with Snowtroopers. Either I'll be all over this set when it comes out.

Not so! In the "Incredible Cross-Sections" (OT), there is a picture of a white speeder bike on the same page as the AT-AT. The trooper riding it is basically a Scout Trooper wearing a Snowtrooper backpack and with no black areas between armor plates. I think it looks very cool.

I've been looking for an image of this since RogueWompRat mentioned it above, but with no success. It sounds cool, so if anyone has a pic, I'd appreciate it.

Do you know if there is a pic of this on line? It sounds pretty cool, but I will wait to make my opinions once I see the toy.

Ugh, weak. Work got in the way of this. Weak, weeeeak!

I said my part though.

I hope all you guys make it to the comic con one of these years. Can finally have some P's & Q's together.
