Yeah, this is definitely a tough find... my TRU had 4 of them last week, I bought two of them.

I like it a lot.

I don't know if this helps anyone or not - but WalMart has these listed on their site as in stock (as of 10:18 AM EST, 4/6/05) - here's a link:

I found a good number of them at Midnight Madness, and got 4 of them. They're pretty cool.

Yeah - the TRU I went to for MM had gotten two cases of them in so there were a total of 12 to be had - they went VERY quick - and for good reason, it's the best small vehicle so far.

I think ultimately the Wookie Helicopter will be, but for now, the AT-RT is the best of the first three...

I put batteries in mine and it walks pretty well, it wants to pull a little to the left some times, but for the most part it works pretty good.

I got one at MM at TRU. I'm pretty pleased with it. It does a pretty good approximation of a walker's lurching gait, although it does pull to the left as others mentioned.

Ah, crap.  I found several of these at Walmart today - and they are $20 each.  The Boga and BARC Speeder are only $15 each.  This is in the same assortment - small vehicles... I wonder why it costs more there?  I passed on them because of the price.

I noticed this too.  I finally found a bunch of them on Saturday at WM.  When I got to the checkout I was hit with the $20 pricetag.  I said forget it.  I found them later in the day at another WM and the price was $15 ???

Glad to hear these are starting to hit Wal-Marts around the country.  The only place here that I have seen them is TRU on April 2, and they had 3 at the time.  I had one in my hand, but decided to wait since I had already spent too much.  Hopefully they'll continue to show up more now, and not be so tough to come by.  Sounds like it is a nifty little walker from those who have picked it up.

Yep, it's pretty cool.  I got two of them at TRU on April 2.  Today was the first time I've seen them since.

To me, this is well worth $15, but not $20.  Funny how $5 can make or break a sale.   ;)

At least I know why I can't find them anywhere if everyone is troop building them.  I'm going to shot for 4 of them.

Yeah, and I don't think they've really shipped much yet like the Boga and BARC Speeder.  Should start showing up though in better quantities.

Get 'em while you can.   :)

The TRU I went to on MM only had one case of the AT-RT.  They're actually shipping 6 x per case.  I think Hasbro anticipated a high level of demand for these.
