I'm terribly lazy, so can someone post a photo of the upcoming SF assortment AAT alongside this one so I can see just how different they are from one another, and compare them both to how they actually looked in the film?  I'd rather buy the one that is animation-accurate, and for the life of me I can't find a photo of the individually-boxed tank right now.

Thanks for the links, Jayson.  It looks like the version that's coming out individually is the more accurate of the two (the detailing on the where the cockpit viewport would be is different and the one in the BP may or may not have the triangular lines under the CIS logo on the "shovel" section of the tank), but the one in the BP actually looks quite a bit more detailed and realistic.  The blue is a lot deeper and crisper on the BP version as well, at least from the photos.

If the UBPs are as easy to obtain as they were last year (being that Target actually has a lot of them for at least one week and has a set launch date for them), I'll probably just end up springing for the UBP.  I can always stick the extra BDs inside the tank.  The fact that the Clones are the version from the AT-TE with the little shoulder logo makes that a little more tolerable as well.

It's a great set but I just can't stand the tank design.  We cannot keep that thing together....

Is it a different design from the EPI version?  I've had no problems with it.

This is a great set. Glad I'll get two more of the Clonetrooper that is packed in with the AT-TE, that is definitely a nice bonus.

For me, the only change I would have loved to see is instead of us getting the Wave 1 Anakin figure again, we get the version of Anakin that's coming in the STAP battle pack - the one with the soft goods skirt. It would have been nice to have a second way to pick up another Anakin that could sit - something I'm going to want one of once we've gotten his new yellow Delta-2.

I'll get this set, but not for the figures. I'll sell/trade those. I just want the ships.

In the last 24 hours, I've gone from not wanting this set, to reconsidering it for the new paint aps, to now wanting two full sets.   ::)  I need to check into collector's rehab.

Uhm,

How come the name of the BP on Target's website is "Star Wars CHLD SWCW ULT BP AT-OT "?

Are we getting an AT-OT at some point?  I'm pretty sure that's an AT-AP, right?

P is next to O on the keyboard. It was probably just a typo and the person who entered it didn't know any better.

Annoying that no price is listed. According to 'Scums resident Target employee's, these are going to be $60.  :(
