Oh My God.  Check out this pic.  More discussion on it in the customs section... even if Hasbro were to make it 1/2 this size, I'd be all over it.

edit - I had to shrink down that super-size pic a bit, sorry!  Jeff

Our Clones need better ground support, that's all there is to it.

I'd buy one and easily would lay down $60 for it.  Heck, maybe more if it's a good scale.

If they made it to scale, I would pay $150-$200 for it... if not, I think something in the $75-$100 range would be fair.

The biggest problem is, people say they want one, yet wait for it to go on clearance.  That is a huge factor as to why we don't get awesome vehicles like this anymore.   :(

Well there was a rumor there for awhile that the AT_TE MIGHT come out in time for X-Mas as an exclusive.  However, I have not heard any more of it.  Quite frankly it was probably B.S.

That's a pretty cool custom.  It's almost on par with ILM's AT-TE model I saw at the 2003 NAB show at Sony's booth.  This one actually seems a might too big.

I was having a discussion about the AT-TE recently over at another board, and I've come to a realization.  Unless the AT-TE is featured in a plot relevant situation that directly affects the main characters of Revenge Of The Sith, I think it's unlikely that Hasbro will make it.

According to the novel, I think these things directly fire on Obi Wan when the order is given to destroy the Jedi.

I think in the comic adaptation it shows one killing Luminara Unduli.

They should make one - it's the last movie and everybody loves the four legged walkers.

The AT-AT is a killer toy and if they scaled it to roughly the same size as the AT-AT I think they'd have a winner.

Same price point as the AT-AT too - $75.

If they can afford to tool the ARC-170 (killer ship BTW) they can afford to do this one.

Though I think they lost their asses on the royal starship - did anyone pay full price for that thing?   :P

Yep - I paid full price for the Royal Starship... I thought it was money well spent.   :)

The Coeli TE is very cool...  I think it's possibly even a little over-scaled, though I don't have a ref handy to compare, but it's close either way, or dead-on.  I'm anxious to see the interior he tries though. 

I'm still reluctant to "ask" for this from Hasbro though.  Coeli's is just that much more inspiring for me to want one that's to-scale over one that's knocked down some pegs for the action figure line.  To me, that can be done properly if they wanted but I can't see them ever doing it...  I'd be first in line to buy a to-scale one though if it were done...  And if I had the $$$ to afford it.   ;)

I liked the Royal Starship myself.  The maroon/red R2-D2 was nice to.  If they actually made the AT-TE I would get it at some point.
