Re: Trade Federation MTT - 2012 Hint?!

Having it show up in two major mediums in late 2011/ early 2012 does sound like the perfect opportunity to release this.

And to all the people who say this doesn't offer enough playability, come on, you know Hasbro will come up with neat concepts that will make this not only a vehicle, but a Trade Federation Battle Outpost, or something to that effect.

Re: Trade Federation MTT - 2012 Hint?!

I'd certainly like to see a MTT in the 3 and 3/4 inch line, and yes I'd buy one (maybe two if it was also release in TPM and CW colours).

The MTT is to the Trade Federation/Separatists what the AT-AT is to the Empire. Remember the AT-AT is basically a transport/carrier for the stormtroopers, it's not actually a tank or dedicated fighting vehicle otherwise it would be bristling with weapons.

The MTT would fill a much needed slot in the Separatist ****nal as at the mo the Clones have the AT-TE and Turbo Tank as big vehicles while the poor old droids lack such a big vehicle.

Besides the MTT plays a VERY important part in the SW saga, remember but for Qui Gon saving Jar Jar from being run down and killed by a MTT, the whole story would have ended there and then.

Without the MTT, the Jedi dont met Jar Jar, without Jar Jar the Jedi don't get the gungan sub to get them to the Queen in time to rescue her, and without the Queen the Jedi never have to repair her ship and so never meet Anakin, who then never becomes Darth Vader or fathers Luke and Leia.

BAM the MTT is THAT important!

Also if it did transform into a Separatist/Trade Federation Outpost/fort/base then all the better. An enemy base for the clones to attack and take over, brilliant kids would love it

If it's turned into a playset/vehicle then so be it. Long as it has a cockpit, droid rack, and ball socket cannons. It's a must buy for me!

So all you Prequel bashers out there: stop hatin' on Jar Jar and instead hate the MTT for being the whole reason behind Jar Jar showing up in the first place!

But without Jar Jar nothing would have gone according to plan in Star Wars!

Anyone think we'll get an escort STAP with the MTT?

yeah! If it does the rack can fit in the MTT and then you put it on transport. Genius!

Seems like a good idea. Maybe 2?

Re: Trade Federation MTT - 2012 Hint?!

Think it would work better in the 30-50 dollar line. That way it can deploy 8-10 battle droids. As said above,a bmf style MTT would just require far too many battle droids for kids. MAYBE if they put out some battle packs to go along with it that had 10 battle droids in them but even then a $100 toy basically becomes a $140 toy just for the deployment feature to be any fun.

Well, if you remember we got Buzz droids already sculpted in ball mode for the Tri-Droid Starfuighter.

So, maybe Hasbro can sculpt and make multiple mold/casts of a folded BDs. That are already in the rack for cost issues. Though the non-moveable ones can be taken out of the rack and you can place your new moveable ones in the rack.

In the recent Q&A Hasbro said that Episode 1 has some good candidates for the next big vehicle. Maybe this could be it?

Probably the easiest pass for me put of all the BMF styled vehicles.

Great minds think alike.

I would be on board with the MTT even in a scaled down version that could hold say, 10, droids in the back, have a space for 1 or 2 pilots, etc. That would be very cool.

I don't care if it held 6. I want one badly. Enough that I'll buy styrene and build one.

It would make me so happy if they made this! Makes me all nostalgic thinking about it. They should include the blue Battle Droid driver with it.

I can honestly say, if this is the big vehicle...I'll be let down. So much more iconic left to do. As stated it's basically just a glorified carrying case. I'd much rather Jabba's Sail Barge.

Agreed man, but I really think they'll be saving that for the ROTJ 3D release, I see them making a BMF style vehicle for each of the big movie releases. So since Phantom Menace is first, and they've already done those Dinosaur/Shield Generator animals, plus they already mentioned they won't be doing the Queen's ship, so it's gotta be this as a big vehicle. It makes sense for the marketing which I get, but I'd say screw prequels and give me all the OT I can stomach if I got to make the rules! Here's to hoping we get a redone Rebel Transport when ESB hits AND Slave I

Well, as much I want the Sail Barge. This will make me
if they make this first.

You'd think by now with how the BD can fold down, that they'd have Destroyer Droid that could roll up into a ball.
The MTT I'll have to pass on.

I'm not really looking forward to a Sail Barge. I like things on scale and the Barge is WAY to big to be on scale, Never really been into the play sets. If Hasbro made the MTT it would be close to scale.

I would buy a MTT. The separatists need a large land based vehicle. I would prefer a sail barge

Hmm..., anyone know if the MTT had a cargo space from cross-sections? It'd be a nice feature to have a STAP holder.

It doesn't matter. The thing is a big brown box. If they can put a stupid EU speeder bike in the AT-AT they can do what they like potentially.

I, of course, am quite looking forward to seeing the way Maul's blade bike fits snugly into his new large-scale Infiltrator!;)

you're absolutely right. I never understood that either, with all the figure and sculpt technology now it would be SOO simple to create a fold-up Destroyer, still can't believe that hasn't been done. All they have to do is take note of how the Transformers line works and I'm sure they could make something easily. Hasbro really misses good opportunities to do cool things constantly it seems. Maybe they are holding out for the 3D release.

^It would look good anywhere. Got to remember this thing was used during the Clone Wars. If they made it, my Republic Commandos dio would be overwhelmingly awesome.

Boss: What's that!?

Sev: It's a MTT!

Scorch: First a Spider, now a MTT???

Boss: Deltas find cover, we've got company.

*facepalm* Chancellor's Shuttle? Ya really think a war based toy company will give us a shuttle? I mean I love vehicles, but stuff like that is considered to me background fodder. I mean what is it gonna have? A Chancellor quick attack blaster cannon.

I'd bet if the MTT was coming out, it be the "big" vehicle of 2012, like the Falcon and Turbo tank before it.

Well it is the foundation of the Trade Federation and the C.I.S., being that it has been more than 10 years since we've seen it on the big screen. It needs a spotlight. Just think, I came up with more features. On both sides it could have 2 rolled up Droidekas and when ya push the button on top the panels opens up hits the ground and pushes the Droidekas out and watch them roll! Now that would be awesome.
