Anyone seen an unboxing / demo of this to know if you can steer the AT-ACT?  Just curious if you can get it to turn large circles, or if the control is really just forward and shoot.

Will they swap heads and mid-sections someday and make an AT-AT version.

Nerf thing eats up cockpit space. On the other hand I've never been crazy about the gun barrels being missiles thing they did for years (it means that second-hand toys are missing the projectiles most of the time, and look all the worse for it).

It sure didn't look like there was a lot of steering options from the clip of the control buttons shown in the video.  I love all the other features though, even the nerf missle.  I will definitely get one of these when they get down in the $200 range.

Early look on YouTube of the walker (and LOTS of other stuff, stick around for all of it):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwMc7FzLBr4

I'll say the walking feature is pretty cool. The Nerf thing is pretty cool. All that combined with the reviewer's enthusiasm really warmed me up to this thing. I would love to have one just to play with all the stuff and then put it away forever. That said, it's tiny and SO OVERPRICED as to be beyond belief. This is at best a $150 toy. $200 is stretching reason. If I can get it for below $200, I'll definitely consider it.

Yes, $150-$200 is my acceptable range for this thing as well.  I will pay in that ballpark price once it hits that low, which I assume it will.

Hasbro Pulse has posted a new "Designer Desk" video highlighting the AT-ACT.

I still think this looks like a really nice, really fun... undersized, over-priced toy.  :-\

Funny how Steve Evans reacts as if this is the first time he's ever seen the AT-ACT toy.  :)

They always demo this on a table / smooth surface.  I wonder how well the walking feature works with carpeting and if the feet get caught and topple the walker.

We know it can get tripped by a thin cable or even loose logs.

EE put up a pre-order for this today.

They say it's due in October but since it's already November, I'm going to guess that'll change. ;)

BBTS is also listing the AT-ACT, but I think they're being more mindful of the price concerns, because they're offering it for $274.99.

...and I'm still not biting at that price.

If it gets down to half of that... I'd consider it.

If you find something like that at some point and one can be shipped let me know.
