The AT-ACT is definitely an interesting toy... Much more "fun" to my eye than the Falcon was last year. I think this is a great idea though. Having it actually walk, interactive with a smart phone... These are definitely good ideas.
It's smaller than the BAT-AT was, so there's bound to be some pissed folks, and NERF or nothing will piss of some people. It's a toy though, meant to be a toy, and played with, and I'm just shocked they didn't incorporate NERF stuff earlier to be honest. It's a huge toy line for them.
I agree on SDCC this year Darby, that it was a generally better one than last year. They touched on SA 3.75" which they basically wouldn't last year. They touched on being aware of distribution issues... That's all you can hope for at a thing like this.
Where they end up with that, who knows, but they have a nice smattering of "everything" and at least they DID touch on 3.75" SA too, so you got a little for everyone there.
Again, the big reveal was clearly (for them anyway) the AT-ACT, but the online community probably poo poo'd it some. To me it's a cool toy idea. Once I see one in action, if it works well I may actually pick that up. A walking AT-AT is cool no matter what.
