My love for the AT-TE is far-reaching and magical.

That better be a real Hasbro toy. I want several. Maybe there's a Homing Spider Droid somewhere off-camera (fingers crossed)?

Yeah, that's true.

If RS is trying to pull off another "Surprise! Its a custom!", then my rage will know no bounds!!!

I agree Lando. I agree.

I seriously hope that each are real, and they hit shelves of stores soon! Hasbro's is looking up!

I will wait for Toy Fair before I make any judgements on this.
It it turns out ot be "true" I then would be happy and get one of the Walkers. But I am not happy if there is another Gunship in the works unless it can carry the walker.
For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com

Definitely a cool development, if it pans out...  And what nobody seems to be pointing out, is that there's an accompanying Republic Drop Ship too!  I wonder if it will come with the AT-TE, or be sold separately...

I made a trade with a fella (coeli) several months ago who was making an amazing custom 1/2 scale AT-TE.  He sent me a few pictures of it, and it looked dead-on accurate.  I'll have to see if I can go dig those shots up again and show you guys.

It'll be nice to see Hasbro pump out one of the few remaining "most requested" vehicles out there.  So what other larger scale ships are left from the Prequels, besides the obvious Sith Infiltrator?

hrm...amazing custom :-X

Drew Kremer sends us an image of a custom AT-TE and Dropship originally posted to our Forums some months ago. The work appears to be that of Andrew Sherant, the winner of the America's Best Young Star Wars Collector contest, which would explain why the ships are sitting in a Hasbro both. We’re attempting to contact Andrew for confirmation, but these vehicles are looking more like "amazing customs" than upcoming toys. With all the buzz generated by the appearance of the image, hopefully Hasbro will get the hint.

I'll take at least two of these, very cool indeed. I have been waiting for this one to arrive since I first saw them on the big screen.
