I read on a website (don't have the link, sorry) that TRU will be running a Christmas in July sale, and the AT-TE will be one of the advertised items. The sale takes place not this week but next, and the AT-TE will be 50% off at all TRU stores. If I find the link again, I'll post it here.

I noticed that TRU.com already has this marked down to $49.99 this morning.  Not a bad deal at all.

Couldn't make it out to the stores this morning so I ordered one on-line.  Can't beat that price.  I plan on giving it to my kids at Christmas, so it's only appropriate that it was the Christmas in July sale.

I bought two of those this weekend. Great price for this. I originally thought I wanted 5, but determined 4 would suffice for my needs. I already had 2 prior to this purchase, so now I'm up to my wanted amount.

I'm going to use 2 for my Geonosis diorama, 1 for Utapau and 1 for Coruscant or maybe Felucia.

$49.99 is really a great price for this sucker.  I was tempted to pick up a few more, but I'm good with two.

I finally broke down and bought one as well.  I couldn't really budget it in at the $100 price it seems (alongside the Falcon last year), but always thought "if I find it on clearance, I'll consider it" - for $50, I ordered one online as well.  Our local stores don't have any of these in stock, otherwise I would have grabbed it locally.  I was actually sort of surprised to see these still in stock at TRU.com this morning, with the $50 price.  I figured they would be sold out instantly, but maybe people have already picked up their fill a year later.

From the video game right?

This is what CostCo should have released as their exclusive last year, a slightly re-tooled version worth the attention of collectors.

Let's hope they get it right with the Turbo Tank this year...NO RE-PACK!

I wouldn't count on Cost Co or bulk retail "clubs" like that to get anything that is newly tooled...  First I think Hasbro knows it would annoy some, but second they generally do get and sell their items on somewhat of a lower price scale/discount.  "New tooling" usually doesn't jive with that.  The big club stores tend to also get less product in it seems, though that's the case with many exclusives in general.  But still that's also a third strike against "new tooling".

Maybe a repaint...  But new tooling usually comes at a fair cost too.

VEry good points, you are almost certainly right about this. I am just hoping against hope. CostCo's AT-TE re-packaged release last year is still the only CW toy I have never been able to find. I'm not really sure I even want it, but it sort of bugs me knowing it's out there, even if all the xtra figs were straight repacks.

I'm definitely going to be combing the aisles for their exclusive this year though. Just to decide with it in my hands...

This is of course super-late to the AT-TE "party", but I finally got a chance to open this up and put it together this week - and it really is spiffy.  I couldn't afford to get it last year, but finally bit the bullet when it was on sale for $50 at TRU earlier this year.  I've been re-arranging the office/collection room, so finally got around to opening it up, and I'm glad I ended up getting this.  I haven't had any issues with the legs (at least not yet), and it really is not only a nice collectible, but a fun toy too.  Very cool.  I am usually more interested in the OT vehicles, but this really is nicely done.

I didn't have any issues until the second or third week - legs just started falling off due to the body's own weight.  Perhaps they fixed that with the latter releases?  Tubing worked great.

I've seen it routinely marked down by 50% at the Toys R Us Holiday Express outlets.
