My WM still has a lot of these left. WM's are weird with their exclusives as many have pointed out. if these go on clearance I may get two more.

Our local store still has 3-4 of these on the shelf as well.  I've grabbed two already, but I'd be tempted if they hit clearance as well.  I do hope it sells well though, so we see more things like this in the future.

For anyone who happens to be finding cheap AT-ST's, and if you have the means to help out, can you send me a PM?  Locally they're pretty well sold out, or not going on clearance, and I'd really like to have picked a couple of these up for customizing.  Thought I'd have the chance but right now it's not looking good out this way. 

If you can help drop me a PM...  I appreciate it a lot!

I've not been checking my area too religiously as of late, but at least one of my area Wal Marts still has 6-8 of the AT-STs and they have the little green price sticker reading "Was -- Now $43.95."  I didn't scan one, but the tags are probably right.  I'm sure they will actually get discounted in due time ;)

Jesse, I noticed in another thread you had a store with 30ish AT-STs suddenly go missing... I think they all were sent down here to Texas because one of my WMs JUST put out a crapton of AT-STs and Dewbacks. All at full price.

Most of the stores around here that have them left put them in very odd locations - nowhere near the toy section.  Still full price too, even in the clearance aisles.

Yep. All the At-St's around here are clearance isle adjacent. In the same isle, but not on the clearance side.  :P

Our local WM has now moved these from the clearance aisle, back to the regular SW section (and removed the "clearance" tags that were full price), and dropped them to $30 each.  I was tempted to pick up a third, but I'll wait and see if they go lower.

OK, I'm very late to this party, but I just found these locally and grabbed one and tore it open today.  Like has been said repeatedly, it's a fantastic vehicle and will make a very impressive addition to my Hoth display.  (Perhaps I'll add another to my Endor display...)

But I gotta ask, what the hell is up with the driver's foot?

Packaging malformation...

I'm guessing these figures may actually have been pretty warm when put in, for whatever reason, as many have that malformed foot.  Run it under hot water and you can move the foot around and it will start to take its original shape.  My figure's foot reshaped on its own almost instantly but needed just a little coaxing to get it so it'd stand.

Definitely not molded that way originally though Jesse.

Thanks JJ.  When I first saw it like that, I assumed there must be a pedal for his foot to sit on, but obviously that wasn't the case.

I'm off to see if I can fix it up.

I picked up one last night "clearanced" for $35.   :P   Very excited about getting this though.  My collection is largely figures and LEGO, so this fella will definitely stand out.

Question:  The Wally I got this at had about 6-7 on the shelf and it seemed most had had the chin guns fall off.  Was this due to 'Johnny' shaking the box because Mommy wouldn't let him get it, or do the guns fall off pretty easy?

The guns on mine don't fall off at all.  But the heads are a bit loose.

Regarding the foot, I've bought three of these and two of the drivers have the warped foot issue.

Soemtimes when an Imperial officer was cloned too many times, they'd end up with a club foot.  :D

So I bought a 4th today...

I was at 4 Wal-Marts this weekend and only one had any AT-ST's left and there were only 3 at full price.  So I had a $10 card from something and so I decided $10 off is good enough and I bought one more.

One WM I was at had 8 but moved them (finally) out of clearance and to a main aisle, and they started selling so they were out...  Another sold out ages ago, and the other one that had none didn't even have them in the system (I've carried a barcode with me to scan just as I'm walking by, haha).

Anyway that made me cave.  No clearance AT-ST's for me.  The way this sold though, I think it's inevitable it'll be out again.  I just hope the deco is improved on any future version.  I'm hoping I can get maybe some second-hand down the road for less.  $30 would be fine, I just will hold at 4 now.  One WM I visit semi-frequently I know has some left tucked away in a weird part of the store so I hope those go down in price, but at this point it seems less likely.
