I find it funny that Hasbro thinks, after the slam dunk of a VTSC scout sculpt, they should put the new helmet on a POTJ scout, which is inferior on every level.

They should just throw the mold in the garbage, don't rehash an old inferior sculpt when you have a superior one.

Still passing on this. For one, I have two AT-ATs, and those are a pain to store as it is. Two, I don't like the Endor paint job on this one. And thirdly, that pack-in Scout- wouldn't all the accelerated-aged Clones have been dead by the time of the Battle of Endor?

Eeeexxxactly.

Had it been the VTSC sculpt, I honestly would've probably bought this for the figures and given the walker to the kids as a bday gift this year.  The toy's solid no doubt, but $90's not gonna get me to buy unless there's something in there I want badly enough.  Someone will cast the head I'm sure, and I'll buy a cast, and that'll go on a VTSC body...  Screw Hasbro's pack-in attempt to make collectors want this more than they otherwise would've.

I'm with you Jesse, and I don't see many of these zooming off the shelves at $90 anyhow.  Looking at the CW gunships piling up at $45, the AT AT should sit twice as long.

With $40-ish Gunships sitting, I'm not expecting the AT-AT to shatter records either, but stranger things have happened of course.  I'm not gonna expect it to move well either though..  The big ticket items never have, even when the "extremely limited" ploy has been applied to them (*cough*Shuttle*cough*).

NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so happy that i didnt need to buy this thing. Now i have to reconsider for a figure.  :-[

If you do, you'll just be encouraging more of these dirty tactics to sell you the same vehicle twice.

I'm passing unless it can be had for less than half the price at some point. 


And I really, really hope that's not supposed to be a Jango-face under there.

I hear what you are saying and totally agre with it. I hate when they add pack-in figures that probably won't be released elsewhere. I am honestly on the fence with this one.

Chewie, I think that to have made this better, they could have done the following:

1.  Pack in 2 AT-AT Drivers AND a VTSC Biker Scout WITH a Speeder Bike.
2.  Lower the price to about 60 bucks, tops.
3.  Rerelease the VOTC Stormtrooper, clean, on a card already and continue releasing it until the cows come home.

Or, in my ideal world, they could have scrapped it altogether and use the resources to make an AT-TE.  ;D


Agreed, agreed and agreed.   ;D

In my ideal world, they would've packed in 2 VTSC Biker Scouts (Both w/ flip-up visor), 8 VOTC Stormtroopers, and lowered the price from $90 to $5.

I like the way you think. ;)

Now there's an AT-AT I can justify buying two of! ;D

A little late to be posting this but I'm loving that flip up mask on the Scout. Hasbro sure knows how sucker us out of our money.

I have a question for the barbeque chef...

Anyone notice that we're getting the Scout we should have gotten with this with the tins? ???
