It's ok.  But if u need any help just ask happy to try.  It's fairly straight forward.

I was just looking at this new AT-ST and realized that they put the "cheek" guns on backwards.

Wish WM clearances were easier to gauge because man these are piling up around here.  A store near me is starting to stack them up top now.

So my oldest got to open the one I purchased for him for his Kindergarten graduation and it stands just fine.  This version of the AT-ST seems to stand better than the K-mart one.

My usual concern... I'm tempted at that price, but I'm trying to figure out if it would be redundant to me.  I re-read this thread and I'm wondering if anyone has comparison photos of this one with the TLC version?   I.E., is it any different really than the one I already have in this photo:



Also, what's the verdict on the driver, is he a repack?

The TLC one not terribly as far as deco goes.  The difference is that this one is more sturdy than that one, which is known to have issues where the joints become brittle and break over time.

I got a few of the new one on clearance for $15, which I had on my radar.  I had to drive cross country to EBF but got them super cheap and I'm always fairly happy to add AT-ST's to my arsenal.  The deco is bland and non-specific, and pretty much just like the Legacy walker.  The best deco is K-Mart's IMHO since it's specific to a very particular walker in ROTJ.  The problem then of course is it standing up.  If you feel like putting a lock washer into some joints, it stands just fine then.

The new one is all around superior for standing and staying that way, but goes back to a more generic deco...  I'm fine with that since I pretty much don't mind hoarding a pile of these to customize, and since I'm customizing I don't mind fixing their standing issues, but yeah, this is probably the best version of the walker they've done for standing so far.  Beyond that, it was more of the same at a higher price...  At $25 it's fantastically priced really though, for what it is.  Below what I consider even fair for it.

What about the driver?  Anything different / new about him?  I put in a pre-order at BBTS and they only asked $4 to ship, so the price is definitely right.  I don't particularly need another AT-ST, but if that driver is different at all I'd want one of those and it would probably be worth it.

I missed the K-Mart one and I'm kicking myself for it.  Auctions seem to range from $35 to hundreds of dollars depending on what the seller is looking for and whether or not it's open.  So I'm watching those hoping to find one on the low end eventually.

Drive is the same as the K-Mart 2-pack one that looks like Malkin.

$24.99? Shoot I'm putting in an order now. These vanished when TLJ merch came out and I never saw them discounted

Really?  My stores have literally stacks of these things.  Some on the bottom some on the top shelf and some have them on the bottom shelf and top shelf.  Only two stores blew them out here, but they did no goofing off and really just bottomed out the price and got rid of them.

The walker is a great toy but the whole price plus this not really having a place or purpose hurt it plus it wasn’t long ago it was out for less.  If they’d released it as a Rogue One vehicle around time the movie came out it might’ve done better.

Yeah I swear my area has become some sort of toy void recently. Only WM stocked the 6" speeders, only Target has the 6" centerpiece line. The most AT-STs I ever saw at a single store was 5.
