New images from the Deluxe Figure & Vehicle line...

The ARF Trooper with AT-RT looks pretty slick and that's one I'm definitely into now.  I'll pick that up x2 perhaps if the AT-RT is indeed improved.


Clicky to check it out!

I like Cody's BARC too, it may be worth picking up to slap a 212th Clone on it I think.

For anyone curious, if my Aurabesh chart's right, I think the AT-RT's front markings read BEA and the smaller ones on the rear read EO.  Which seems to mean absolutely nothing. :)

Oh man, that AT-RT looks even better than expected. I was wondering about those markings too...odd.

Great photos, it's awesome to know these are on the way.


Eventually.  ::)

Meh.  Can't really get excited about any of these.  They're all pretty much just repaints and reissues.   :P  The forthcoming $20 price tag doesn't help either.

I'd like to see that AT-RT loose next to an old mold AT-RT, for a size comparison...

I'm not very impressed with the above-shown products. I'd much rather see some new characters that make stronger sets. And I'm surprised Hasbro's crossing over the realistic line to the deluxe figures w/ the Endor scouter and speederbike.

I'm quite excited by the AT-RT. I'll be happy to add at least 4 to my collection. It looks like it has more articulation than the old mold, plus a more accurate cannon.

Cody and the speeder bike is a bit dull. The paint apps on the bike do look cool... sorta like a hot rod BARC. Though I have four Codys, I might pick up this set if there isn't anything else to buy.

The STAP set has fantastic paint apps, and I'd be happy to get 4. However, I'm expecting a $20 price tag if not higher, so I'll definitely try to find them on sale. Same with the Scout Trooper set, though I'd only like a couple of those.

I'm very glad about the ATRT. All the other versions came out during the window of time I was able to show some self control with my purchases so when I get this one it will be my first.

I might have been suckered into the STAP and AT-RT, but I'm going to have to pass on them. The other two are easy passes for me. I'm extremely bored of the Speederbike mold. Never really liked the sleeker PT Speederbikes.

We just got our second shipment, and I got mine-- I have to say the AT-RT is a nice little vehicle.  The best thing, which I assume is an undocumented feature, is that there's a couple of tiny slots on the back of it.  They're perfectly sized to put the clip from a Clone blaster, so the ship actually has storage for weapons, which is something I've been complaining about to myself for a while.  Kudos to Hasbro for reading my thoughts, but I'm going to have to start wearing the foil hat again.

It's pretty stable too-- jointed at the "hips" and "ankles".  It is "fun."  The little cannon in the front moves around too, so I'd say this one is slightly better than the Freeco Bike in terms of user-friendliness/fun but still doesn't feel as solid as, say, pretty much most of the original Mini-Rigs.

The AT-RT wave has hit the St. Louis area the past couple days (Wal-Marts only so far).

What is in this wave besides the ATRT and Sport Skiff?

To quote the great movie "Used Cars": "You gotta be jacking me!"  ;D

That's super mega-awesome. I hit a couple up at lunch today but no signs around here yet. Reason to keep looking though!

Save some time and gas. As a fellow east coaster, and being one state below you, I usually start looking about 5 or 6 days after sightings begin on the west coast. It's a system that rarely fails. I'm not sure how your area is, though. You might need to tweak that plan depending on how soon you get toys. Saving gas means more money for toys.
