I'm loving that AT-DP! Looks to be a good size.

Yup, I was impressed.  I'll take less leg articulation for a sizable walker like that.  Looks like it might have 3 points of leg articulation at most.  That's sufficient. 

I'm anxious now to see the cockpit interior.  It's a smaller walker than the AT-ST in design.  A cut-away of the actual 3D model from the show showed a tandem seating style, but not much room for it.  Basically legs under seats kind of a dealio.  I think 2 could fit the toy well.

The thing is, if they give us the vehicles, we're going to need the pilots to drive 'em.  :)

Especially for that more generic TIE that is sure to come one day...

Rebelscum heavily hinted that, during their preview of Hasbro's booth at SDCC this evening, they saw the Imperial Troop Transport...

Sooooooooo, yeah I'm officially now giddy to see what they saw.

That was the least discreet hint I think I've ever seen.  The only person who couldn't figure that out would be that guy who horrendously failed at Wheel of Fortune a few months back.

I'm looking forward to how the Imperial Troop Transport might get integrated into the series.  And I hope the tool for the vehicle has been at least slightly updated.   That's one vintage vehicle I was never able to get for myself, so the opportunity to finally get one is pretty nice.

Heck yes! As soon as I heard this would be featured on the show I wanted one. Great news, would be cool if it came with some electronics as a nod to the vintage version but I'm not holding my breath.

Honestly given the images I've seen of it, I really pray the vintage mold is non-existant because the redesigned elements of the cartoon's ship are so much cooler and in line with some past precedent too (the little ball turret guns up front ala the AT-TE, etc.).

It's also a little more angular, less "rounded" at the front...  I'd dig seeing something new really.  Vintage stormie transports are a dime a dozen too.  :-\
