I was able to confirm that one of the TRUs in my area is getting a shipment of these tomorrow.  My problem is that I really can't justify the $90 price point right now.  If they order these in the same quantity as they did the Falcons last year, these will still be here a year from now.  But if they learned their lesson and have only ordered a limited amount, I may miss out.  The last release came out well before I started collecting.  It's just the price that is making this decision so hard right now.

I have a feeling if I see it, I will snag it.  I assume the first wave will get snagged by the guy who works at my TRU who has an Ebay store.   

Just for the ATAT and Scout Trooper...

Well, I saw it and couldn't resist.  I bought it.  I'm proud my friend he resisted the temptation.  I've got 'splaining to do.  I can confirm, two per case (at least that's all we saw).

How do the nose cannon lights come on :-\?
It's my first ATAT and it may be defective :(...or the operator is defective/in error :-[ :-X.

EDIT: NM....I took it apart and found that slide contacts for the nose cannons were not hitting the electrical contacts making the sound and noise impossible...they were not hitting them because whoever built it left the wires routed in the way of the electrical contacts preventing normal operation. Rerouted wires and op checked good! ;D

Wasn't it this way with the CW Gunship as well, then a week or two latter each store received a fleet?

Well ..my store received only 2 each(gunships...then 3 weeks later 10..none since)...they're sold out now.

--THFG pack sent only 1 case to my store..none since

I know that TRU sends more product to what they consider high-volume stores..I guess the 3 or 4 TRU's I know of didn't get large quantities of gunships or THFG's..I guess those stores aren't high volume?

I actually don't want TRU to overload on these ATAT's since they're a huge box on the shelf and at their price will sit like the falcon's saga(what, over a year?).

Overall from my point of view this year it does appear TRU is lessening on their exclusives versus how much overproduction in the past. :-\

In general I love all things AT-AT, but for 90$ you can get one without the dirt/paint. On both my figures and ships I would rather they made them clean, and let people decide for themselves if a sandtrooper or AT-AT needs more detail.  :(

I think we're going to see a lot of POTF2 AT-ATs for sale in a little bit!

Everybody wants that new Biker Scout!
