I have to admit I am dreading the price on this one.  They already had the AT-ATs jacked up pretty high the last time they were out.  I think that was the Endor painted version correct?  Now they are talking about it being 3 ft tall and can hold 6 figs in the head along with a speeder bike packed in the back somewhere.  Yowzers!  But in the end if it floors me I will probably get it someway.  Just like the Falcon and AT-TE.  I will break down and get it.  I may get it just soley for a chance to reinact Luke taking down the AT-TE.  That was one of my fav scenes from ESB when I was a kid.  My kid likes that part as well.  Even though sadly from time to time he asks me who that "guy" is  :(

Looks about he same size as the old one, and on a kitchen floor. Head looks awful.

Looks an awful lot like the old one.  Are we sure this is the real thing?

I don't know, doesn't seem that impressive.  Not like the first time I saw a photo of the AT-TE, anyway.

What I find to be really funny is the size comparisson charts being made on some of the otheR Sites, with absolutely no frame of reference other than the floor tiles.  I'm trying to remember when was the last time I saw a 24"x24" floor tile...I'm drawing a blank.

24 x 24s do exist, but aren't common...anyway.  I hate the clear plastic guns...rest looks so simlar and is hard to make a judgement at this point.

Kinda on the fence with this pic (meaning whether or not I like how the AT-AT looks and not so much if it's legit).

My guess is this IS Hasbro's AT-AT... could be dead wrong though obviously.  From this image, it doesn't look great, or terrible.  I think I need to see it in comparison to a figure.

Regarding the tiles, who knows... 24x24... it's been a while since I made a trip to Asia to check what most tile dimensions are over there.   :P

There are definitely some differences between this AT-AT and the original. 

-The neck joint is different
-The cockpit hatch is different.  I don't see the side windows that are on the vintage one.
-The main hold hatch is noticeably different

Also the cannons on the side of the head are noticeably different and you can see the open "ass hatch".

While "booby hatch" might be more fitting (since some of our obsessions over toys could land us there), I guess "ass hatch" is more anatomically correct.

It's just speculation that this is the "new" AT-AT.  I don't think it is.  But if it turns out that this is the new one, you're right Rob, it looks just like the old, bad one.

If this is the new one, Hasbro can keep the 2-3 I was going to buy because the proportions (not just the total size) is still a complete disaster.



Hey Hasbro - smallish head, LARGE body, big tall legs.  Get it right.

The more I look at the POS in the new photo, the more convinced I am that it's the old mold.

This is not the new AT-AT that's coming out.
