I posted a bunch of pics of the Vintage box on our facebook page. I bet even smells like 1980.  :)

Man, that looks so great.  I doubt I'll be able to spring for another for that spiffy packaging, but I wish that I could.  I wonder if we'll see Hasbro continue this (in exclusive form) next year and beyond if these sell well.  It would probably be relatively inexpensive for them to slap together boxes for something like the Falcon, X-Wing, Landspeeder, etc....and probably be tempting to a number of collectors - not that we need more to spend money on.

I received one of these from TRU.com (when they had the free shipping thing going on), and it really is amazing.  I know we've all talked about how big it is, but man, it really is a monster of a toy.  We didn't have any batteries in the house, so I haven't gotten to try the "lights and sounds" features, but aside from that, it really is fantastic.  Fun toy, and it looks great too.

Saw one at TRU today, behind the customer service desk on hold for someone. Looks cool.

I'm so torn on whether or not to snap one of these up as soon as I see them or wait until the inevitable pre Christmas sale to knock a few bucks off. It's gonna be hard to resist, the more I see of it the more excited I am about it.

For now, I'm looking to score a Shadows of the Dark Side packaged one for my MIB collection.

Then I'll hold off until the Vintage Packaged version comes out and score one of those.

After that, I'm gonna hold off until there is a sale or similar right before the holidays and finally score one to open.

Where did you hear that? $20 for a cardboard box?

As we've learned over the years: TRU exclusive stickers cost between $5 and $20 to make  ;)

I now have two big AT-AT's in my Imperial fleet but I am not sure if I will buy anymore. They take up a lot of space but it is such a great toy. I really wanted to get four but space is becoming a real issue. I may buy the TRU Vintage one and keep it boxed but not sure if that will be enough to bite.

If anyone is on the fence with this it way better that the AT-TE and Turbo Tank. This is a must have in book.

Well it's way better than the turbo tank which was awful.

The AT-TE is very very good.

I got the AT-AT today, and love it on par with my AT-TE.

BTW - this fulfills my promise to CHEWIE.  The body isn't as big as I'd like, but I got the AT-AT so I kept my word after my initial protest/hissy fit/temper tantrum.

Glad you guys are giving it good reviews. Not sure WHEN I will get one but I will for sure - it'll be the BIG christmas gift for my son this year.
He also wants the target Hoth sets but I can't get both, I think I'll get the rebel set mostly for the rebel hoth troopers and the cannon.
