Hasbro's Star Wars Bespin Cloud Car

Here are a few photos of the new Bespin Cloud Car toy from Hasbro's Star Wars range. Whereas the Snowspeeder was perhaps my favourite Star Wars vehicle as a kid the twin Pod Cloud Car... was not. This was not the most exciting toy in the line and it's taken a while for Hasbro to get around to doing it again.

First here's the box art. The third photo shows the diorama.

here it is with the new Cloud Car Pilot figure in one of the "pods".

The underside.

The hatches open. I like that the gray bit is part of the hatch.

The pods separate and missile launchers extend.

There are also some equipment bays.

Here the pods are reattached but with the missile launchers visible.

This is a good attempt to make a "boring" toy more exciting and also provides a nostalgic fix for fans of The Empire Strikes Back.
