Has any one noticed that they just don't seem to display things correctly eg the back legs
when the turbo tank came out they thought the back was the front

Actually, I think the Turbo Tank can be driven forward or packwards - there are control sections in both in the cross section references.  I do think the AT-AT pose looks a little weird though.  I don't get why they don't display them in a "walking" pose.

I like the fact this At at shows an interior with two levels and something like a veranda. Also the details of the guns in its rear, shows a most devasting war vehicle. Only I wonder about how exact will be the paintjob, I would prefer they include different shades of gray and of course the interior should come without decals, all sculpted.

I assume it comes with features like launching missiles, and interior / exterior lights.

I kind of wonder if it will show up in the cartoon as well.    I hope at Toy Fair they have ESB figures displayed with it.  That just does not look right with Commander Cody and Clonetrooper General Kenobi.  I like the Clone Wars but get those away from the AT-AT Hasbro.  LOL!

The AT-AT actually showed up in Dark Horse comics' REPUBLIC title during the Clone Wars.  But only in one or two issues.

So for comparison, I took a shot of my vintage AT-AT to see how it will compare to the new BAT-AT.  18" vs 24".  That's a huge increase in size.  OK, nowhere near the 3', but still impressive!  :P

The funky angle of that pic Jayson linked to makes it a little tricky to appreciate the new version, but it still looks great.  Perhaps the head is still overscaled relative to the body, but honestly, I'm not too bothered by that.

Apparently that previously leaked photo of the At-At on the kitchen floor is the real deal. It looks a lot better on it's feet, and as for the head, I guess we'll just have to see it with the hatch closed and from better angles.

I found this online.  I think it represents an ideal model.  We'll wait for a head shot of the AT-AT with the hatch down, but from what I've seen so far the head doesn't look so good on Hasbro's new version.

It's definitely looking better.  I have a feeling Dressel and Jesse going to be permanently disappointed with vehicles.  There will always be scale and size issues.  Just part of the toy/collectable balance Hasbro is always going to have to weigh.

I'm not sure I'm going to buy it with space issues in the collection room plus other things going on in my life right now....but it's looking like a nice addition to the line and a nice hoage to the 30th anniversary of Empire Strikes Back.

I love the AT-TE and AT-ST.  There's hope!!

EDIT: Also the new TIE w/ huge wings and the dewback and the corporate alliance tank droid and homing spider droid even though those two are a little small.

EDIT: Oh also the hailfire droid and new rancor.
