I understand what you mean Nick, but if you take the Legacy AT-AT and put it next to the AT-ACT, the AT-ACT is horribly underscaled.  It was my understanding, that the AT-ACT should be the same size, or larger that the AT-AT.  Looking at the AT-M6, it is much larger than the AT-ATs in the picture from TLJ....there's no way we'd get one on the scale with the Legacy AT-AT.
This is the way.

Totally.  If Hasbro was to try making an AT-M6 to scale with the BAT-AT, it would be the size of a Rotweiler!

ATACTs are significantly taller than ATATs but Iím not sure if theyíre broader.  I think so, but not sure.  The ACT didnt make a ton of sense to me in the film except maybe itís ability to Ford deeper water without submerging itself comes into play somehow?  Larger walkers were always a part of the EU and that was fine by me but I just never really saw a good explanation why the ACT was so.

It also was odd that they almost seemed to surprise the Rebels...  I mean thatís pretty hard to miss but yet they did sort of appear out of nowhere.  Rogue One still kicks ass.🤷‍♂️

Jesse,  I believe some of the ideas they had about Scarif was, originally it's where they were building the Death Star....so the AT-ACTs were used to move cargo about.  I'm also not too sure about the width, but I agree that they were a bit taller.

I'm sure someone's done a size comparison somewhere.....TO THE INTERNET!   ;D

I predict the next Haslab item will be either:
Rebel Blockade Runner...not to scale, but good enough.
or
Y-Wing (movie scale).

The YWing done to scale, would have me ordering a minimum of 3.  Maybe a 4th to custom.

I can't see them doing a Blockade Runner... it's just too large a ship to make sense in anything even remotely resembling 3.75" scale.

Agreed. I think it would just be kind of dumb.

I think the next BIG thing will be a DS of some sort. There will be an incentive for Hasbro to try and 'outdo' the Barge, I suspect.
