And the geeks, nerd, boyfriends, fiancees, brothers, cousins etc.

Man, I wish I could get my hands on one of these AT-TEs today!

I can see it now
     Yes Hun I know he is only one years old but I think he really wants an AT-TE for Christmas,  But since it is very expensive and I won't want it to break on him I'll keep it in my room for safe keeping  ;D.    Oh and I think he said a big screen TV too.    ;D ;D

I will be able to justify either the Falcon or the AT-TE but probably not both of them.  Especially if they are released close together.  Unless I want to buy nothing the rest of the year.  I doubt that will happen.  Anyway the AT-TE is sounding awesome!

Indeed...  By all accounts we've heard/read, this isn't going to be a downer of a toy.  I hate to get all amped up for anything in life really, but this is something I keep getting psyched about the more they talk about it. 

I wonder if there's going to be repaints then down the road?  Imperial grey would be welcome IMO, but I might be in the minority on that.  They're in the "Empire" series of comics though, so I'd be down for one of those.  Maybe market it as a Force Unleashed thing or something.

...And to think - you're going to be amongst the first who gets to finally see it in person.   :)  I'm sure you're already making room for it on your Geonosian table.

This is pleasant news. I guess the AT-TE will hit on day one with all of the rest of the Clone Wars product.

So it's looking like July will be a VERY expensive month indeed.

Hasbro just sent us word though...

Even what they say is rumor, and you really shouldn't expect this to be confirmed till you physically pick one up in your hands, and are allowed to purchase it at a retail counter...  The statement from Hasbro read that there's rampant rumor and speculation to the point that they believe even holographic projections are being put out there editing AT-TE's into background images to imply one exists.  Hasbro will not confirm/deny it...  even if they say it's real, so only believe it when you actually get one.

Much like Target's Ultimate Battlepacks, trust noone, and believe it only when you see it yourself first-hand...

Even then, make sure it's not a trick by some prankster putting a full sized custom on your local store shelves.

We dont' want this getting out of hand guys.

(sarcasm above, enjoy)

Isn't this just Hasbro trying to "control" the flow of information about product like they always do?  Between published reports and the CNN video, I think its pretty fair to say that at some point this year, we will see an AT-TE for $100 on shelves somewhere.  Not sure why they have this need to stick to an official announcement when the cat is already out of the bag.  :-\
