New Review: AT-RT Driver


JediDefender.com presents a new review for your reading pleasure. This week we're taking a close look at the AT-RT Driver (Missle Firing Blaster) figure from the Revenge of the Sith line. A figure who was mislabeled as the "Turbo Tank Driver" for quite a while, but it's nice to see what ammounts to a quite worthy replacement to the pre-posed pack-in driver that came with the AT-RT vehicle. But does this figure hold up against his clone brothers in quality? Read the full review to find out!

Of course when you're finished, please feel free to hop on into our Reviews Forum and share your thoughts on this figure or your own review with us.

WalMart Gets Bonus ROTS DVD


November 1st is the big day for the release of Revenge of the Sith on DVD and WalMart has a really good reason to buy it from them. With your purchase you will receive a bonus DVD entitled The Story of Star Wars describing "R2-D2 & C-3PO's chronicles of Luke and Anakin Skywalker"! Check it out at WalMart.com for $25.48. Thanks to forum member Commander Cody for the heads up!

However, it appears that this is not a freebie - when you check out the listing for the ROTS DVD without the bonus, it is listed for only $15.87. Keep in mind though that the non-sale prices for both are $29.98, so there may be a change yet.
