The AT-AT includes one speeder bike which is of the same t-bar mold we've been subjected to for years.

I know the product shown looks to be the POTF2/vintage mold, but it would be hilarious if Hasbro decided to tool up a new and accurate bike just for this toy.

True, but I don't expect a new Speeder Bike until the 30th Anniversary of ROTJ.

It doesn't look new to me.  We've asked here about new Speederbikes in the past and Hasbro's seemed receptive to our requests, but I don't think it's happening with the AT-AT, at least not from the looks of that early image from the Euro show.

Additionally, when they do one, it won't be a pack-in... it'll be a featured thing.

Actually the pictures weren't allowed to be snapped...  Whoever did it would've been tossed from the show and not allowed back had they been caught.  Hasbro was pretty strict about that with both shows it's made appearances at thus far.  They were the same way with the AT-TE a couple years ago, as I was able to get hands-on descriptions of all the details and run them as a JD story at the time, but no photography was allowed.

I wouldn't be shocked if you're now not allowed into some of those shows with a cell phone if they're keeping some of the things under wraps for US Toy Fair debuts.

And soon in our Toy Fair Photo Section...the new ATAT with the backside for fellow collector's....

The thing is pretty big really.

The play features are also pretty cool...

rumor has it another site had a tape measure, not sure if they got a picture or not.

Well Hasbro specifically asked us to tell you to make sure you buy one with the correct packaging.  TRU will have one with Vintage-esque packaging while the others will be more in line with the 2010 packaging.

I guess I'll be getting three of these then - one to open, one in the Vintage packaging and one in the 2010 style packaging.

Better start saving up now!

I'm torn. It looks both fantastic and awful at the same time. The head specifically. Body is just about perfect IMO, but the head looks great from some angles but bad from others. I know I'll end up buying one though, but how soon I do depends on my financial situation at the end of the year.
