Anton, what are you going to do if Hasbro makes a new version, with articulate knees/etc?  I'm thinking somewhere down the road we'll see a new sculpt of the AT-ST driver.  I like the one they've made, but do think he could be a lot better.

Absolutely, I think they could do better and I'd bet good money that a more articulated one will be made. When they do, I'd buy a platoon. Until then, I'm just tryin' to fillin' in the ranks with an adequate place-holder. :P

If/when that day comes, for those old AT-ST drivers, I think you could still find a great use for them - just pop on some different heads and you have generic Imperials, techs, etc. -

That's exactly what I need 14 of them for.

Cool stuff. More Scout Troopers, more speeder bikes, more Ewoks and LOGS!

I guess big H is getting their money's worth from that AT-ST sculpt.

Hmmm... I wonder when the factory errors will show with the Hoth AT-ST in the Endor Set and vice versa  ;)

The Ewoks are appealing but what's with the use of the AT-ST again?  That tooling (along with the speeder bike) really have seen better days and now it's in two Battle Packs at the same time.

I really don't see the collector or parent plunking down the cash for both...

That being said, I might not get it as I do have a lot of AT-ST's already, along with just about everything else in this set.  For the logs, I can use real branches from my back yard...

To get me to really want this set, they would have needed to include something else... perhaps some Endor Rebels with new head sculpts instead of Han and Chewbacca.

I seem to remember there being some sort of small structures to the side of the bunker in the film that one of the Endor rebels jumps behind when the battle starts.  Something like that would have been cool I think, or I guess even the bunker itself with a new paint scheme.

I think that this is a nice set though, and would be a great gift for the kiddos.  The Hoth set is definitely the superior set though I think.

The Hoth set is WAY better than this. I really have no need for this set, but I will probably end up getting it for the Ewok and the army builders.

I want two Hoth packs and one Endor. That makes three new AT-STs!

Pretty excited on this...  I like most of it as I'll take the scouts, stormtrooper, Ewoks, logs, and AT-ST Pilot.

I'm sure I can find a buyer for the AT-ST somewhere.

I like this one too.  I'll admit its not quite as exciting as the Hoth one (at least to me), but still pretty nice.  I hope to pick it up too, and maybe I'll have to pass along one of these AT-STs to the nephews or something.  I don't know that I need three of them.  If these are both hitting for the Black Friday weekend (or around there), its not the best time to be dropping $100. :)
