After thirty long years, it’s here. The big one. No, the BIGGEST one. The one for which we’ve all been waiting: Hasbro’s massive reimagining of the AT-AT. This iconic vehicle (much like our first glimpse of a Star Destroyer) immediately imprinted itself into our memories and imaginations. As opposed to the Star Destroyer’s explosive “guns blazing” arrival, the AT-AT’s deadliness showed with its slow and deliberate steps, the march of a relentless and nearly unstoppable titan.

Oh, the Empire strikes back indeed!

Before we continue with our in-depth review of this gargantuan behemoth, we here at Yodasnews would like to offer our sincerest thanks to Hasbro and their representatives at Hunter Public Relations for providing us with this most generous gift. It is a positive sign when a large international company such as Hasbro takes the time to acknowledge the hard work of collecting sites like ours and others including Yakface, Jedi Temple Archives, and Rebelscum. We may regard their Star Wars line as the highest priority, but the reality is that Star Wars is only one small cog in their vast catalog of merchandise. For them to work so closely with us shows they recognize and appreciate our contributions and support as well as those of our readers.

Plus, offering such an expensive sample demonstrates Hasbro’s confidence in this vehicle. Actually, can we even consider this a vehicle? This new AT-AT is more like a massive playset—a collector’s centerpiece and a rallying point for an army of Imperial and Rebel action figures. You know what…let’s keep it simple and just say “vehicle” for the purposes of this article.

I saw this vehicle for the first time at my local TRU yesterday. Man, the box is heavier than I thought it would be. Anyway, I don't collect vehicles (and I really don't collect vehicles which are $100!!!!), so I put this one back on the shelf.

Nice vehicle....for the next collector to come along. Wink
