How much does it cost? I wouldn't expect too much for such a small ship. That would be a brickmaster exclusive, right? That means if I want it, I'll pay an extortionate price for it on ebay or bricklink. :thumbdown:

The 20006 MINI CLone Turbo Tank is still going for +£20 on eBay.

So if you wanted the CTT and the Venator it'd be wiser to subscribe to Brickmaster.

Or... you could build it. It's not that hard to, except for that one new piece, but it can be substituted! By the way, the two closer engines tend to fall off.  :hmpf_bad:

If you look carefully, see the ship is resting on a magazine with a minifig on it? By the hand, it's sort of camouflaged.

It looks cool to me!
Btw, it's not a new piece, it's just in a new colour. I've got it in white from an old set. :wink: Link

Thanks for the review, even though it's a little too pictorial and not much "review" :tongue:
I like this mini.
Compared to the other minis previously released this is very well done in my opinion.
I am sure it'll look good next to my mini ISD :wub:

I can add some more... like for starters how they switched the two sideways tower thingies (or whatever you call them) with giant gunning turrets!  :tongue:

I was about to say, the build of it reminds of the mini ISD; too bad I'm not a subscriber, I can't justify paying that much for sets I may not even like and a magazine I'll never read. :sceptic:

Or just buy the parts off BL. But I would love to have this. I'm a clone fan.
