Speaking of AT-ST's...
My son's room is decorated in Star Wars. I purged a bunch of the collection many years ago, but many of my most favorite items are in his room. I am a SUCKER for the neo-vintage look, especially when it is a toy that I had as a kid, so there is a lot of that in there.
I had the K-Mart Endor AT-ST on a shelf in his room. Two mornings ago, he came in and woke me and told me he wanted to open a toy. I told him not to open anything and to go back to sleep. About ten minutes later I heard a bunch of commotion from his room. I went in and he was trying to put the AT-ST together. He DESTROYED the box in the process. All I could do was laugh, and put it together for him. These are his toys now so if he wants to open them I guess the OCD collector in me has to go with the flow.
The thing looks awesome but it is a **** toy compared to what we had when we were little. Lots of futzing to get it to stand. I am surprises no one has released a more properly sized set of feet for this.
