Here is an overlay from a map discovered on the construction site and a overhead view of what has currently been done. The green is the Battle Escape building. The purple is the Falcon ride. The orange are restraunts, shops and jedi training theater. The yellow is where the train will go and the boarder of the land including the Fantasmic boat/prop storage off the river.

I've confirmed with a friend of mine that works construction there. Those are indeed two AT-ATs.

Star Wars-Themed Lands Come To Life as Construction Progresses at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts @ Disney Blog

Neat little video shot of the in-progress AT-ATs they have there.

Yeah, there was not a whole lot of variety when I was at the store in Disney Springs last week. I came away with two droids total, both different from anything I'd seen there on previous stops. They had lots of parts, but mostly the same ones.

I still find it pretty fun though, when it's not all crazy hectic at the station.
I promise you I will not entertain you in the hallway, and do not attempt to walk with me

I've managed to get every part, most in multiples, thanks to friends who go frequently enough to do that for me.  I've mixed/matched some parts with the multi-pack parts too, to make a pretty seemingly endless variety.  Throw in some Hasbro BAD parts too and it's even better.  Add to that some minor "customizing" to parts I had plenty of and it can get even more absurd.

It sounds like this recent trip has me 100% caught up on parts at this point I think.  That's a good feeling...  It'll end as soon as that R5 pack comes out. ::)  I'd love to have some extra parts to swap onto those too.  I already have a slight plan there.

I wish they had more "generic" domes readily available all the time, regardless of wave.  A solid white, solid silver, and perfectly clear R2-R3 dome would be neat things to have, from a customizing perspective.  I could see buying many of the bodies and just slapping those "generic" domes on.  I'd probably rebuy MANY of what I already have, actually.

The Star Wars land model is on display at D23. I think the UGP crew could have done a better job.  ;)

I think Disney/Hasbro needs to make one of these. Imagine having it full of Stormtroopers for a diorama.
