Has anybody got news about the rumored TLC At st and new Luke´s snowspeeder?

Hope these will be very evolved toys, the vehicle and snowspeeder without decals, all sculpted and decent pilot action figures.

The new snowspeeder isn't a rumor.  It got confirmed back in a fall '08 Q&A session.  And my own expectations are kind of high.

As for the AT-ST?  That rumor's been circulating for at least a month if not more.  I'm hoping that it'll fit Chewbacca and 2 ewoks.

At-St (including At-St Driver) will be coming in October and will be a Wal Mart Exclusive and retail around 35-45 dollors.
The Snow Speeder is coming next year along next year.  Their will be three new vechiles that I know of so far.  2nd is the swamp speeder.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info Stan.  Glad to hear further confirmations on the new AT-ST, I hope it really is impressive.  Plus, a sub-$50 pricepoint is always welcome.  I'm not crazy about it possibly being a WM exclusive though, since those have really become hit or miss around here (none of our three stores in town ever got the A-Wing in last year for example).  Hopefully, they'll make it readily available in store and online.  I really hope all these rumors of a new Snowspeeder are true for this year or next.  Next to the Falcon (and maybe the X-Wing), the Snowspeeder was my favorite ship as a kid - and I'd really like to see an all-new scaled version.

Hasbro has kept saying that "wait until you see our fall exclusive program at SDCC", or something to that effect, in regards to "where's the OT stuff?".  I wonder if we're going to see a number of OT exclusives with the rumors we've been hearing.  Isn't Wedge's X-Wing rumored to be set for Target?  If this new AT-ST is headed to WM, maybe each of the "Big 3" will have an exclusive vehicle this fall (although we haven't heard anything about a third/TRU exclusive).

So the swamp speeder news just flew in under the radar, huh?  Thanks for the info Stan!

Okay so going off the post from Brian if the toys are Wedge's X-wing that represents ANH. The AT-ST would be for ROTJ. So I'd guess a new smaller (more accurate) snowspeeder is the ESB ship.

Listening to a special collector-focused Force Cast, and Mr. DePriest confirmed that there is a new Gamorrean Guard on the way next year (yay!).

Hasbro has been hinting at a new Gamorrean in the Q&A sessions.  Nice to get that confirmed at last.

Zuckuss got confirmed in the early May Q&A session.

I'm definitely looking forward to an all-new Zuckuss.  My bounty hunter lineup has looked incomplete, as I've been holding off on picking up the POTF2 version at this point hoping for an all-new one.  They also discussed improving Dengar, noting that while the sculpt on the SAGA version was pretty good - the articulation could be improved.

Cool. Hope he finally comes with a vibro-blade in addition to the axe.

Did one (or both) of the Gam Guards that Luke choked (just before Luke is met by Bib Fortuna) have a pole-arm of some kind?  I think it'd be cool to get that, even if it is the only scene with that weapon.

THey both did, as they crossed them in front of him.  Those weapons were given to one of the skiff guards in the old cinema scene I believe.
