I believe that is the Master Replicas AT-AT.

Damn...lol.

More AT-AT Details (rumors) from RS:

Quote
Rebelscum reader Boba Fatt sends in a report on the highly-anticipated BAT-AT: "Damn, it's HUGE!"

According to this eyewitness account, it looks like a Turbo Tank on legs, with an interior similar to the inside of the Turbo Tank, but with 2 levels, opening doors, a gun rack, and an underside hatch for Luke to slice into. There are 2 strings that come out of a side panel like on a rescue helicopter. The neck seal is rubber, and the head holds 6 figures inside, including General Veers. Plus, the rear opens for a Blizzard Force speeder bike. Still no photos yet, but this matches all previous reports.

Sooo... does that mean "the head holds 6 figures inside, including someone tall like General Veers" or is the rumor now being updated to say that a new?/repack?/kitbash? General Veers is coming with the AT-AT?

I know it's strange. I was/am under the impression that it includes the AT-AT Driver per the info I received on it last week. We'll see I guess.

I could personally care less about extra figures and speederbikes with the inclusion of this set.  I just want this BAT-AT (what's the b stand for?) to rock my socks off.

B=big?

I also could care less who the figure is, since I'm buying it anyway.  I'd be surprised if it were Veers.  A Snowtrooper Commander would be nice.

I could be wrong but it sounds like a new General Veers over in Scum's thread.  Unless they were just assuming that?  Eh, we'll find out soon enough it sounds like.  Time to start saving the pennies again it sounds like!

yeah, on the RS main page it says someone that was at the UK TF reported that:

The card game/figure stand concept was on display, but no new figures were shown, except for what looks like an updated new General Veers...thought to be included with the BAT-AT.

The vintage figures look great but I am puzzled how they are remaking figures that were pretty solid when so many others need it more.

From the Q&A at TNI:
Quote
Well, we can confirm that there is indeed a great new AT-AT coming this fall. Set to hit shelves on 8-1, it will be offered at a $99.99 SRP (same as the AT-TE and Turbo Tank) and will be an all-new version, rethought from top to bottom with great new play features, a lot of room for figures, and a huge number of electronic phrases and sounds. It has been designed with both collectors and kids in mind, and we think that it will wow both audiences. As for size, we don't know the exact height off-hand, but it is much bigger than the vintage Kenner version when all three dimensions are considered in person. Look for more details, and photos, at Toy Fair. Bring your tape measure!

Nice to see the $99.99 price tag confirmed.

Awesome!!!
Count me in for 2-4! 2 out of the Gate and maybe two more at clearance/sale time!

I hop that when they say they will have all of the Vintage wave on display they mean it. I am officially really excited, the community needed some new news, fan site traffic has been really slow across the board.

SWEET!

I'm glad that Hasbro confirmed this ahead of time. Now the rumors can be put to rest and we can eagerly anticipate seeing the pics. Oh and PLEASE, take dimensions. Height, width, length. If possible, take an old AT-AT with you if they'll let you in with it, to compare sizes. I know that's asking a bit. Maybe shoot off a message to Hasbro and ask them if they'll have the old mold there to compare against so you don't have to trudge one about.

I'm very happy about this and the price is right on the mark!

I'll gladly get a new one. And maybe 2 more when it clearances...

This is exciting news (not that the lead up rumors/news to the confirmation wasn't), but it's nice to have it confirmed.  The all new design and price tag sounds great.  I'll anxiously wait to own one.

Not sure if this was ever answered, but does Hasbro trash the old molds/tools when we get these updates on these "classic" vehicles?  Not sure why anyone would want the old stuff - perhaps some vintage throwback in the years to come?
