These items were released nearly a year ago - in case you had not noticed, Walmart and Target no longer have them in their planograms.  I don't think that TRU does either - the AT-TE simply sold through and was very popular (not to mention $50 less than the Falcon).

The Falcon sold through in most areas as well, but can be found on clearance in some areas still.  However, TRU still has shelf space for it at full price.

That's why you don't see AT-TE's at retail anymore.  It's actually really simple.

That was kind of a short window, what six months on these?  I'm glad I got my two when I did, but this thing will have to retail for more than $100 if/when it comes back out - not to mention if it's a TRU exclusive.

Yeah, you'd think that something that requires this much tooling and design work would be available all of the time.  I can't believe it dissapeared.  I did, however, see a BMF tonight at TRU.

It made it's money, that's all that matters to Hasbro. Next time it get re-release, as long as it sells a certain percent of it's run, it'll all be gravy.

Has anyone seen the Costco repack version at retail?  I have only seen one on Ebay and it was a seller in Canada.

A friend call me from Costco asking if I wanted one. Never saw one there myself.

I've seen these at two TRUs, both with old packaging. I imagine the packages for this and the BMF won't change as it seems cheaper to keep the same boxes.

Yeah, I've seen both the BMF and AT-TE back on the shelves at the local TRU.  The packaging was the same as before.

Is TRU gearing up for the holidays then?  I assume we're not going to see case assortments with the AT-TE & TT at WM and Target then?  Not that I care, but would be nice to know.

Still haven't found time to apply tubing to the legs on my loose AT-TE, but it's fine as long as I don't fiddle with it.

I'm pretty sure the packaging are different sizes, so them being in the same case seems unlikely.
