Clone Wars AT-TE

He even verified that the AT-TE will be coming next year, late fall, just in time for Christmas. According to him, this is going to be a huge piece, larger than the AT-AT and will be priced above $100, no set price yet.

Count the Wookiee in.  Best news since... since... anything Star Wars toy related in the modern era.

I'm sure it will happen but I'm waiting for an official confirmation.

Although I do want a toy based on the AT-TE I don't think i can justify more then $100 on it, it better come with some troopers or something to come close to changing my mind.

Y.E.S.

 :D

And I'm encouraged about the scale being "bigger than the AT-AT" because our clones have a good shot of not looking silly next to the vehicle like they do next to the AT-AT.

Hopefully Hasbro will go the full nine and sculpt everything in proportion. Not like the AT-AT which has the over exaggerated head and short legs.

Imagine an AT-TE the size of those Power Wheels things the kids drive around  ;D

Nah, that would be a correct size AT-AT.  :o
I'm hoping they choose AOTC clones over ROTS for the pack-in. Hopefully will the cannon will be big like all of the ships that aren't supposed to have big-ass cannons.  :P

I don'y want any money spent on pack ins...5 figures in this thing would boost the price 25 dollars, and the vehicle would only be 75.00 worth of plastic.  I want 100.00 worth of plastic spent on the vehicle.  I've ALREADY got some clones! =)

I'll say that, for $100 and the boasting of a "larger than the AT-AT" tag, I expect a lot...  Waiting for confirmation because, well, we pretty much were expecting an AT-TE to come out next year weren't we?  So I'm not shocked at the news at all...  I just am a little surprised at the price and boasting about size and all.  Larger than the AT-AT could very well put it to-scale though, depending on how you define "larger than the AT-AT" though.   :-\

Yep, I see this just like you do.  For a hundred or more clams, I want to shell it out on the actual vehicle.  Or whatever price it is, I want it to go towards the vehicle itself.  I wouldn't be surprised to see a couple clones with it, but I don't need 4 or 5 figures packed in.  Though I am sure that would be a selling point to some folks.

This is probably one of the more credible reports I've seen on this vehicle.  If Derryl DePriest is saying this, it's got some merit.  And in the past Hasbro has talked about the fact that they've mocked up the AT-TE.  I'm definitely looking forward to this vehicle.

I'm not surprised by the news, but the price tag is higher than I thought it would be.  I wonder how big this thing is going to be.  It doesn't make sense for the AT-TE to be an exclusive, right?  I'd figure Hasbro would want to sell as many as they could and anywhere they could.

Sounds like it should be awesome, and I'm glad it's coming out.

But I probably won't get it just for the simple fact that I can't stomach waltzing into TRU and dropping $100+ that fast. Like any collector worth his Freeze Frames I can rationalize spending that same amount on 15 basic figures ... but it's spread out over weeks/months instead of blowing a C-note on a single purchase and therefore doesn't seem as painful. Kind of the "boiling the frog by dialing up the heat gradually" approach.
