So, I suppose I could read through this whole thread but I decided against it.  I've got a question for you guys.  My mother in law got an AT-TE for my son for one of his Christmas gifts.  He got to open it today and he totally loves it.  However, when we put the batteries in it, I was quite disappointed.  The sounds seem very muffled and I can barely hear them (brand new batteries).  Is this common or did I get a defective sound system?  The lights seem to work just fine, its just the sounds.  We can barely hear them.  Thoughts?

I think you have a defective one.  My AT-TE's sound effects are quite loud.

Well, thats good and bad I suppose.  Good in that its designed better than I thought.  Bad in that I need to return it now, and, of course TRU is sold out.  Hopefully they come back in stock after the holidays.

Try to even-exchange at WM maybe...  They generally take everything back, and they'd get credited for the defective product anyway.  Shouldn't need a receipt to do that.

Of course though, if your area is like mine, AT-TE's are long gone...  I'm only seeing Falcons this past weekend.

My wife found another AT-TE when she was out shopping yesterday.  The electronics on this one works like a charm - the voices and sounds are very loud indeed.  I'm going to return the defective one now.  So far the legs seem reasonably stable as well.

Buy 1.  That's what I did at the $64 price.  Figured I have too much extra tubing left from my first one so this was a cost saving measure for me.   :D

I was sort of waiting for our tax refund to hopefully, finally pick one of these up since they were still in stock at HTS.  Well, of course our return is due this week, and I see now it has sold out at HTS (and other online sources) and has been removed from their site as well.  Does anyone know if these are going to continue to ship (to online I guess, as its not likely at retail now)?  I guess its not the end of the world if I'm not able to get one, I could keep the $100 - but I was just curious.  Maybe this is a sign that I should have stuck to my original plan of sticking to only OT vehicles for budget/display reasons.  It just seems like there is so much neat stuff from the PT/CW era on the way in the various price assortments this year.

Brian, both the AT-TE and Millennium Falcon are open stock items meaning that any store can re-order at anytime.  Wal-Mart/Target may have clearanced them out, but apparently TRU is still ordering them.

At Toy Fair, Hasbro said that you will most likely see both the AT-TE and the BMF back at retail in the new Red/White style packaging (I know TRU was mentioned as ordering the repackaged versions for sure).

Thanks Jeff, good to hear.  I'm still a little bit on the fence until I'm able to rearrange/re-do the collection room to see what kind of space I have, but hopefully I'm able to grab one at some point.  I was just hoping I could do it this spring, so I could start saving for the Turbo Tank in the fall.
