Target "AT-RT Assault Squad" Battle Pack
« on: July 1, 2007, 12:57 PM »
Thanks to 4 inches:

I don't mind getting more AT-RT's, but the camouflage Bacara is a boneheaded choice.  I'd still buy the pack with the wasted figure though, still a good deal.

I am not really feeling it. As it stands, it is a pass for me.

Why would you need cold weather armor on Kashyyyk?

Cool! The Bacara is pretty lame but I missed out on the AT-RTs back in 05, so I'll need a couple of this set(depending on the price).  ;D

True, but you dont need it on Coroscaunt either and that was still a cool figure in that other BP.

I hope Hasbro is smart with this one and changes the body to the Baraca clone with one that has articulation over the quick-draw crap. It looks like they are including the carded version of the AT-RT driver over the non-articulate ones, so there is hope.

I might get one for the AT-RT drivers at least if they don't swap out Baraca's body.

Hopefully a clear photo will show up somewhere soon, as I can't tell enough from the photo to know if it's worth picking up or not.  The Camo Bacara will definitely be gotten rid of, but one can always use more AT-RTs and/or their drivers. 

This is supposed to be part of the 20 dollar price point, correct?  If so, I'd suspect Hasbro will ditch the walking action features on the AT-RTs.  Even if they do wind up doing that, 20 bucks for two walkers, two drivers, and a fifth figure isn't bad at all.  Hell, 30 dollars for all that isn't bad at all.

$30 for 2 AT-RT's is about the going rate, I just hope the drivers aren't the shite pack-in figure...  Can't tell well by that photo. 

Bacara repaint?  Meh...

I'm good for one opener set. Not a bad price at all either.

Who says they only used AT-RT's on Kashyyyk?

I've seen mostly negative responses on this in various forums, so here's to hoping that after my first two sets, I find a few more super cheap on clearance.

Really though, I think this set is cool.  I don't like a Bacara being included unless they give his body the regular SA treatment.  As for his helmet, I love it so I'm glad we're getting another one.

The drives look like the basic AT-RT driver from the ROTS line, at least sculpt wise. 

What I'm really hoping they do is give the walkers a nice paint scheme, on par with the repacks of the Hailfire and AAT.

I never got an AT-RT so I MIGHT buy it.  But more than likely I'll pass on it for something else.

If you were in the extreme Norther or Souther regions?

Is the Bacara helmet specifically intended for only cold weather?
