Tank Droid Comparison, Front Page Poll

Post by Clonecommando007 on Wed Jul 08, 2009 4:36 pm

The Lego Company has re-released, in a way, the Corporate Alliance Armored Tank droid in its Summer 2009 wave of Star Wars sets. The new tank droid is modeled after the stubbier tank droids shown in Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie that premiered in 2008. The 2005 release of the tank droid included a Wookiee Flier and Dwarf Spider Droid, and was modeled after the vehicle shown attacking the Wookiee Beach in Star Wars Episode III.

7748: Corporate Alliance Tank Droid


7258: Wookiee Attack


Please vote in the poll so we can see which tank droid the general public prefers.

Eh, either one really, but the poll was really designed to contrast the tanks themselves.

It's complicated, I like the newer Tank Droid's color, but I like the old Tank Droid's design.

I'd go with the old one, as I'd probably just change the color.

In my opinion TLG put more effort into the old one, then the new one.

Yeah I like the design of the newer tank and overall the older set. Wookies > then jetpacks.

I was a bit stuck on choosing between them...

I like the shape of the older tank droid - I like the Ep 3 version over the Clone Wars version - but I hate the colours used for it.

The newer one has better colours (a bit boring but more accurate and appropriate) but I dislike the new model. But it's still a Tank Droid, so I'll say the 7748 one is better.

I have both, and think that an combination of these is the best. The new one has all the detail and colors and the front part of the thread angled right, but the old one is the right length. Still I prefer the new one.

I voted for the old one.

The pro about the new one is the jetpacks.

I hate the 2009 clone wars design with a vengence, but the colour is lovely, I voted for the 2005 one, a lovely design, but the colour is weird, I think i might get the new set and try and make the old design but with the new coulour, since I have got the old one.

Although TLC got the coloration right in the new CW tank, I really liked the old one better. It's fairly ironic how they're making all the Separatist vehicles dark blue (Hyena bomber, AAT, ect), which is how they should be because they are separatist vehicles and in the CW they're blue, and they get the colors right in the 2005 set, but then go to grey to make up for the old set. Razz Anyways, I think the clones with jetpacks are the best part of the set, so I'll be getting a few. The tank is crap in my opinion. Looks nothing like the vehicle. I liked the older set much better.

The old one is better, definitely. They should make a brown one, though, then that one would be the best... Wink

If it's just about the tank, I like the CW one better. The older one comes in a better set, but the new one just looks much more apealling without the orange and blue, It just needs to be longer.

I honestly do like my two 2005 Tank droids the most. The 2009 sets, while better in terms of color, is aweful when it comes to to proportion. They are simply too short, and the disks are too large. The 2005 droids also gave you a DSD, battle droids and some Wookiee figs. It's got better figures, better pieces, and it had a better price.

The only positive I can see for the new tank droid are those smexy jetpacks Wink .

The new one is way better to me. The colors actually go together, and the eyes are better designed. But I could go without the catapult. Wink
