It's sexy as hell. The price isn't super awesome, but the paint apps are impressive. Anyone know if there are multiples on the show?

At least at Best Buy I'll see it on the shelf!

I have a severe allergy to the price, but that is awesome. The logo is far more Kenner ish than the PT or ST vintage logos have been for the most part. I'm really looking forward to the Mandalorian line up (and show).

Yeah, price is ridiculous. But, this is neat.

It was not that long ago at all I was seeing these at Ollie’s and ROSS for $10, so hard to get excited about the same thing for an exponentially higher price. The raider looks cool though.

That’s pretty gnarly. The price is nuts, but I would wait to buy it until I see the show and/or have a 4” Mandalorian. Much more interested in Poe’s X-Wing myself.

The paint apps on this put the Imperial (clean) one to shame though, so there's a value add there. Plus, aside from the figure, there are some newly tooled details on the hinge area and above the foot. And that little net thing, but that's not a tooled detail. Could you customize one of the $10 AT-ST's into this? Sure, but how much is your time worth?

Looks really nice, and man I never get tired of these vintage boxes. Like others, the prices on the vehicles are kind of steep. I want all of these, but will have to pass and/or wait to spread out the spending on nearly $300 worth of vehicles. Still though, the actual vehicle (and figure), look really nice. Like Ben said, I want a 3 3/4” Mandalorian though first before I’d grab this too.

I'm more interested in it for the figure.  I'll be interested to see if a similar figure is released later individually or as part of a pack.

This gives me hope that we'll see TVC versions of the cast of The Mandalorian!

There are at least three TVC figures coming, but most likely not until early 2020 (The Mandalorian, "Code Name Duck", and "Code Name Berry")

I like the paint scheme on that AT-ST Raider ;D Hopefully they will use a harder plastic than the last Vintage Collection AT-ST...  But this will be something to hunt down for sure!

This is a great way to start things off for The Mandalorian.  Seeing the AT-ST in the trailer was very cool, and knowing that it's not in Imperial hands makes things interesting on the story front.  Plus the figure looks really cool.
