I grabbed both the AT-TE and BMF on the 26th, and it was like Christmas in July (literally) around my place that afternoon. Both of them are without a doubt the best ships Hasbro/Kenner has EVER produced for the SW line since its inception. I opened/assembled the AT-TE first and was in awe, and then opened the BMF and was even more in awe.
Around my area, the distribution has been extremely weird. One Wal-Mart hasn't sold very many of either, while Target never even got the BMF to sell, and TRU is selling more AT-TEs than BMFs, although the BMFs aren't selling badly by any stretch of the imagination. I think that overall both of these are going to be huge successes.
