35ft long - the pics are at his site.  That is incredible.  :o

There's about 1 minute of footage of the new AT-AT on Today's website.

Starts at about 6:00

That's about the best I've seen the AT-AT look, although the head still aggravates me.  I already told CHEWIE I'd buy it and I'll likely keep the promise.

I am disappointed Al Roker did not try to ride this though.

Cool, thanks for the link Dresssel.

That helped give an idea of the size, but I hope the ass-hatch closes better than that- it was too visible. That video actually had me more concerned about the feet than the head. I think they were sculpting this thing to have 4 more inches of leg when the feet were developed. It sort of looks like it is wearing slippers.

Ya I had that video on pause/rewind for about 20 minutes or so yesterday to check it out.  Was nice to see the size compared to folks standing behind it.  Didn't have the audio turned on, but they just kinda looked at it and walked by to the RC Falcon and lightsabers.  Looks nice though.

So does anyone know why there's a Sith Speeder Bike Scout coming out in the Hoth BP to help "support" the AT-AT?  I don't get it.

I think that was just a typo.  The Speeder Bike in the set is the same as the previous Hoth Speeder Bike -

I'm surprised that the Empire Hoth BP includes 3 figures, a vehicle, and a gun! Hasbro usually finds a way to skimp on BPs, but we sure did get lucky with this one!

I don't want this set - but you're completely right.  This one should be a good seller - nice value here.

This set would have made a little more sense to include another AT-At driver in place of the Scouttrooper. But I agree, it's a good value. I am not buying but if they are going to reuse existing stuff I would hope they stuff as much as they can in there like this.

Back to the AT-AT as time goes on the more excited I am getting about this. July cannot get here fast enough.......I am without a doubt buying two off the bat. I may get sucked into more including that sweet vintage package.

It's not new, it's a repaint of the Saga version. We'll see if that's the one we actually get though as the one shown as TF was the old mold.

It's about freaking time!!! That sculpt is great and I am surprised it took this long to rerelease it.

I have the Saga Red and CW White version stored in all 6 of my gunships in the Speeder cargo bay. I see Plo Koon is getting the CW one in the deluxe line as well.

Only reason I haven't used the Saga version is because of the republic emblem. Love it otherwise and would be happy to have it in this set.
