For those curious...

In other news, the new Falcon's got a supposed length measurement of 80cm, while the new AT-TE has a length measurement of 70cm...  Either could be completely bogus or inaccurate, so take that with a grain of salt...  What's interesting is this though;

The AT-TE length makes it almost 100% 1:18 scale.  It's 1:17.71, which is by far and away 1:18 scale...  You get that small and the fudge room is not noticeable.

If that's the case, I'm down for two.  More if possible.

Again, take it with a grain of salt...  It could be inaccurate.

Electronic sounds and motorized doorway system have got me sold on this.  This was the best part of the vintage ships IMO.  I'll defintiely get one now, maybe two as well.

Check out the front page for some Rumors & Rumblings that includes some details on the AT-TE you won't want to miss. ;)  Boy I hope that thing's rumored size holds up because I'm up for 2 if that's the case!

Hmmm...where to put this ginat toy?  I've got it!  I'm going to hang it as if it's walking up the wall with a cable like in the CW3D tralier!  That'll save some floor space.

Damn, with the rumor of it being scale accurate I'm almost tempted to get 3 of them.
I remember my dream now.

Wow. I really wanted it to be so-so, so I would only need one. It's starting to sound like I'm gonna need two... :-[

I'm really curious about how a ship this expensive and large yet with so much demand is gonna do at retail. That'll be interesting to see.

I hope you have sturdy ceiling beams. ;)  Actually it probably won't weigh a ton...  I have an Avenger Torpedoe bomber on my ceiling and I thought this was testing the limits of hanging crap from the ceiling, but it's up there AOK.  I used some pretty decent wire to hang it though opposed to using clear heavy fishing line and such to avoid visible lines...  Worked for me though.  Hanging one walking up the wall is a really interesting concept and one I might try myself someday.  Better way to display something without it taking up too much space when it's this big.

My problem is I'm seriously entertaining the thought of two, if they're to-scale...  70cm would  seem to put it there though, if that length holds true.  Wowza...   :o

Speaking of this walking up the wall schtick, did you see in the CW video that the new Jedi girl is standing on the cockpit fighting as it's climbing?  Very cool.

I hate to say it, but it's sounding more and more like we're getting more than our money's worth. :D

Hard to believe that this is going to be very close to scale and come with lights and sounds for around $100ish, but I'm not complaining.

Two for me please!  :)

This is continuing to sound quite cool, and I'm looking forward to seeing it (hopefully) this weekend at Toy Fair.  I would think that would be one of Hasbro's big "reveals".  I really hope to be able to pick one up, but it will probably take some convincing with the Mrs. to make it happen.  As much as I'm looking forward to the rumored Falcon, I almost hope these two things are spaced out a bit or its going to be a bit much for me to afford.

If it's between $100-120, then I'll take at least three. I'm considering 5 total.
The first three would be one each for Geonosis, Utapau, Felucia. If I get the other two they would be one each for Coruscant and Kashyyyk.

Thanks Mr. Bush for the tax rebate! (That's the first time I've thanks him for anything in the last 7 years....lol)
