my guess would be 3rd or 4th quarter.

Now is the Tank just a repack in a new box or is it going to have some differnt paint job or somehting to make it different? If it is different in some way I will pick one up. If not I will pass since I have an E1 version.

I'm fairly confident that it is exactly the same. The only minor paint differences it MAY have are variation in blast marks, I think.

ATT
« Reply #19 on: May 17, 2003, 09:24 AM »
We all know that we are getting a rerelease of the ATT,my question is why not take out that droid door feature,and have a detailed crew area,kinda like 21st Centuy would do?



What do ya think?

If they just scrapped the old tank mold and made a 21stC styled tank... that'd be the most awesome thing ever.  :o  Unfortunately, Hasbro's not all that creative (whatever creativity it takes to steal an idea, they don't appear to have that, either, considering the GI Joe line...).

I don't like the stupid droid door thing, but I gotta get one... Hopefully I'll find one, that is, I haven't been so lucky with any of the Saga line yet.

I'd be happy with the new design, but I'd be even more happy just being able to get one of these.

Armored Assault Tank (AAT)
« Reply #22 on: July 10, 2003, 07:41 PM »
My wife pulled through again for me today!  First she gets me the new Jedi Starfighter, and today she picked up one of the Armored Assault Tanks (AAT) at a local TRU.  This AAT is sweeeeeeeet!  The details on the box are incredible, and of course this is probably going to stay put in the box.  I wanted to share some pictures with everyone here, so check 'em out.

So is this Tank the exact same one as the Episode 1 Tank? If so I will have to pass.

It's basically the same tank, but the "damaged" Battle Droid is red instead of the beige/brown color from EP1.  The overall paint job appears to be exactly the same as the EP1 version.  But, since I wasn't able to pick one of these up with EP1 toys were dominating shelves, this was a "must have" item.  And hey, my wife bought it for me!  How can I go wrong with that?   8)

I saw this today too, along with the new deco Starfighter.  I thought, "Cool!" but I already have one, so I left it for someone else.

That was very cool of you to leave that for someone else to pick up.  Not too many people would do that.  Kudos to you.

I thought so.   ;D

Now if someone would just leave say, a Helm's Deep 5 pack or something...

Another case of Hasbro not using their noodle. First they put the glove on the wrong hand of the Jedi Luke, now they put out an ATT thats the WRONG COLOR.

How hard would it have been to repaint it, like they did the battle droids, or cast it in another color or whatever it is they do?

And people wonder why collectors are getting fed up with the hobby..

Good scores though, Chris.. 8)
