If the height is anywhere near accurate to what they reported, I'm disappointed. "bigger than 13 inches" is a little vague about the possible height, but unless it's about 18.5 inches or so, it's still too short I think. Hasbro's mentioned wanting to do this in the past in Q&A's I believe (possibly from us IIRC), so I'm not surprised it's rumored, but at the moment I'm also not holding my breath. So many rumors these days are unreliable... This one seems a little more valid I guess, but still I'm reluctant to believe a lot that's posted anymore.
The two-packs for Clone Wars were also mentioned. I'm wondering if they're replacing the ones with the droid if they come true?
Anyway, I'd love a scaled AT-ST, and the rumored price I'm ultimately ok with if it's as nice as I could imagine it being, but unless it's to-scale I'm not picking it up for $50. It has to be pretty perfect for that.
