Well this just made my day.  Pretty safe to say that we all figured it was coming out sooner or later in some form, so it's nice to finally see at least some "evidence" that this sucker is on its way.

Awesome!  It's about time.  Yeah, it definately looks like they will wait for the cartoon to launch it.  I am almost certain they will throw in some clonetroopers with it.  Probably from the cartoon as well.  Well we shall see.  It definately is looking better for the AT-TE!

This is certainly good (expensive) news.  At $100 this will have to be gigantic.  It will probably end up being as much a playset as a vehicle, kind of like the Royal Starship from TPM.

I can definately see Hasbro making one of these. They alread made a simular vehicle for gi joe back in '88. It shouldn't be too hard to customize this vehicle into an AT-TE. This sucker was 3 feet long and opened up.

I'm worried to say this since eveyone seems to be so excited but aren't there a lot of other "large" vehicles they could make for $100 that would be better than an ATTE? Give me something OTC!!

I suppose this will be out in the 4th Quarter, when I really can't afford one. I'll see what happens, but I'd sure like to get one.  :)

Not when 2008's going to center around a big 3-D Cartoon called Clone Wars that features this vehicle prominently in it. ;) 

Not to say I wouldn't like to see a new AT-AT, but really when you get into "big" OT vehicles, I think most are fairly boring beyond the AT-AT...  The Tantive IV is dull and more suited to a playset type idea than a vehicle.  The Sandcrawler sort of falls under the same category...

Jabba's Barge comes to mind though, as it's a good action sequence...  But that's about it. 

2008's CW though, and this is something I think people will want.  I just also think that, if it's at every retailer, you will see them sit.  For $100, that's asking a lot of people, and I don't find that collectors put their $$$ up despite their claims.  The AT-AT's have moved quite well here though so you never know.

I'll be putting up my $$$$$ five times.

I love me some AT-TE.

I think I just need to stay out of this conversation from here on because I like the OTC stuff much more than the Prequel stuff and I'm always going to be biased.

Very encouraging news!  The $100 price tag is high, but for something like this I think it's to be expected.  I wonder just how big it's going to be, and what kind of features we can expect.

As for OT large vehicles?  A Tantive IV would be too small to have any kind of diorama that people really want to stage.  The Rebel Transport is kind of boring.  Jabba's Sail Barge is probably the only really interesting thing that could be made with *SOME* level of accuracy and have some play value.  Other than a completely redesigned Millenium Falcon, that is.
