Anybody think they'll pack in a Speeder Bike ala the AT-ST set?  With news of the Scout Trooper as a pack in I'm kinda hoping it's true, but I'm not holding my breath either.  What does the Scout have to do with the AT-AT anyway??  Wouldn't it make better sence to include Veers?

Veers would make sense for a Hoth AT-AT, but I don't think he was in the Endor AT-AT.

Even though the price is awfully steep, I think I'm going to do my best to save up and pick one of these up.  I don't have an AT-AT in my collection, and have wanted one since I was a kid, and the prices for the POTF2 one on ebay aren't any cheaper.  Hopefully I can grab one at TRU, and the pack ins will make it more worthwhile.  It would be nice if it was the VTSC Scout and the Saga AT-AT Driver, but I'm guessing it'll be the POTJ Scout and maybe POTF2 Driver.  Its possible we'll get the TSC version, but we'll see.

I would be suprised to see a VTSC biker scout, it will most likely be a POTJ scout.  But I do think the pilot will be from TSC as Hasbro currently (atleast recently) had him in production.

I hope they pack the VTSC Scout.

You know what I'd like to see? The POTJ Imperial Officer repainted to look like (or at least similar to) that one Officer from the movie that escorts Luke to the hangar and gives his saber to Vader.

A VOTC Biker Scout would be really nice, but it's Hasbro. It'll be POTJ.

All you guys think it will be the PotJ Scout Trooper?  Seriously?

I don't even put that much faith in Hasbro - I think it'll be this guy instead:



Crappy articulation and he'll barely fit in the AT-AT?  He's perfect! :P

It is going to be (my opinion) Biker Scout (Relash of POTJ with Bendable knees) with Speeder Bike (Retooled with correct handle bars) and At-St Driver (POTJ Imperial Officer). No new figures >:(

How does anybody know he wasn't "behind the wheel" let alone having the ESB AT-AT drivers on Endor??  Surely with all the freaking clones in Ep2 +3 there's a chance there's some new guys on Endor that we haven't seen - until the new new new DVD releases comes out.

A Scout Trooper makes perfect sense in a way, since Scout Troopers were deployed on Endor and this is an Endor AT-AT... that being said though, I'd prefer we get two VOTC Stormies with this... remember they were there when Luke was handed over to Vader which would be a great pack in!  But I don't see them ever doing two of the same figure... maybe a VOTC Stormtrooper and POTJ Imperial Officer... I'd be pretty damn pleased with that, although that's not going to happen.

Considering Hasbro's current love of Vader, I'm shocked he isn't one of the pack-ins.

I'm going to go a step further and think that it's a cardboard cut-out of a scout and AT-AT Driver.  No figures, just cardboard placeholders.

OK, now that we've seen what the Big H can do to a rehashed X-Wing to make it desirable, what do you think we'll see with the AT-AT?

Two brand new figures?  Diorama pack ins?

I'm quite curious what this sku will bring...

If it is anything like the Endor AT-ST re-releaese a few years back, I expect rubberly legs and 1 repack and 1 modified repack

I have high hopes for this... diorama pack-ins would be super cool and make me buy it for sure.

Maybe, just maybe they'll pack in a VOTC Stormtrooper and an Imperial Commander or something... I'd be happy. 

Maybe even a third figure, a VSTC Biker Scout with a Speederbike.
