You would see that thing coming from a mile away in the white snow. It would stick out like a turd in a punchbowl. Instead of Snow Cat they should call it Rainbow Sherbet Cat.

Cool protoype. Can't wait to see it released in its real paintjob. Sadly it looks like its going to be a straight rerelease of the old mold and not a remold. I was hoping to see new details like the Ghosthawk. :(
Still definitely going to buy this though. Snow Job needs a ride.

This thing looks like Mario Cantone designed it. I'll have to agree that the foot pegs look larger. Hopefully this is an old mold and they have others somewhere. Quit holding out Hasbro!

This was one of my favorite toys as a kid.
I spent many hours with the Snowcat.
Forget it Jake, it's Hisstank.

OH! Eco-Force Sludge Cat! That's the one that was retooled for TRU a few years back. You can see the difference on that missile stanchion on the side that was done to accomodate the sound attack module.
Also, for those who are going insane over the colors, the reason for them is simple. This item would be called a "test shot". This is a few copies that are run off from the assembled molds in whatever colors are already available to make sure that there are no problems with the steel molds before cranking up for a full production run. If you check some of the past "Con items" you'll see things called VSP's or Vendor Supplied Prototype which are exactly the same thing handed out by Hasbro as bonus items or prizes for contests and drawings. They also are usually wildly colored.

Finally a vehicle that I truly wanted them to revisit! I have passed on many Ebay auctions due to price or the fact that many of them were incomplete and I didn't want to hunt down parts. This would be great if they get the colors similar to the original or just like it. I truly hope (as one of you stated) that they don't f*** this up by putting a spring loaded launcher on it! That would make it completely unable to be purchased because there would be no getting around the gigantic launcher.

Thanks Alyosha, you beat me to the punch (but I'm sure everyone knew that it was a test shot).
But if it was in this color .....my worse fear would be realized.....Rainbow brite and strawberry shortcake would be the drivers....LOL!!!
