Also, the live action show hasn't even really started production. So who knows if that will ever even really get off the ground. I think the success of the cartoon AND toys for the cartoon are going to play into the live show being done or not and for how long.

So I chose to actively omit the live show as a reference point to a midnight madness. heh heh

Fair points and fair enough.  ;D
As long as we get some cool toys and keep SW alive is all I care about. I have invested too much to see this end. I need new figures now!!!! I already have 2008 wave 1 & 2 and my SW figure crack-whore shakes are kicking in.

This drought is going to be difficult.....

Ha, you're lucky you even got any of the 2008 stuff. I've been "sober" for a few weeks now, but my crack is delivering from HTS next week, so I'll try to stick it out. The methodone Transformers figures just aren't cutting it anymore and I don't want to up that dosage...lol

Maybe this has been seen before, but I just noticed some pics over at SSG showing what looks like some shots of the unpainted proto of the AT-TE.  The interesting thing to me was some pics of a kid playing with the vehicle, which really gives some perspective as to the size of the AT-TE.  Wow.

I did see those before, looks pretty cool in the dominant gray scheme... makes me want to get one to repaint all gray for the OT era.

Yeah, but those blue balls got me all kinds of scared!

Though, if my fiancee bought one of these for me, it would be the first time I'd be happy to have blue balls, lol.

The unpainted grey AT-TE with the blue color on those gun turrets was actually the model our sources spotted prior to Toy Fair in our report.  The vehicle is a pretty early prototype, and had all the features and such, however no paint applications and some seemingly miscolored pieces for whatever reason. 

I wouldn't doubt an Imperial redecoration of the AT-TE though, in a more simple grey, should this sell really well...  All signs point to Hasbro really using this as a test to see how big ticket items move. 

The AT-TE really could open doors for a lot of different things if it's a good seller.  More than people may even realize. ;)

Thanks Mike that's interesting seeing them compared to the SA AOTC Clone.  Very cool...  It actually doesn't look terribly different.  I'd classify it as "different enough", but still well done.  The blasters look surprisingly detailed.

The funny thing is that I prefer that outward-sloping "bucket" look to what we actually got in AOTC.

Not a problem!
Yes, the blasters are really well detailed:



That really surprised me as did the removeable belt!

The Clone Wars animated style does look good. My favorite armor has alwasy been the Phase 1, and I think they've done a great job keeping it's likeness. The legs are a little thinner and the helmet is a little larger, but this is common in many animations: big heads and upper bodies with smaller legs. In an art class in college (human composition) we learned that this is usually the proportions that we have until we reach the end of our growth cycles. It's most easily detected in babies, they usually have big heads compared to the rest of their bodies. Yoda is proportionally similiar, his head is almost a fourth of his body.
