AT-TE
« on: May 27, 2007, 05:10:33 PM »
Didn't Hasbro say if the AT-TE appeared in the clone wars show, they'll make it?  Since it was in the trailer, I would hope so.

They did say if it was featured prominently in the series they would consider it.
Since I can't get pass the first 13 seconds I have no idea how cool this series is or if the AT-TE is seen much only briefly being carried by LAAT dropship.

If they do the AT-TE,Target must get it.I will say that Target has gotten a lot better with thier exclusives in terms of availablitly.I was able to find the shuttle pretty easy last year and at a fair price to boot.Back to the topic at hand,I want this to be about the same size as the AT-AT.Also,make it hold a good number of clones as well.

Obviously it would be better if it werent an exclusive but Hasbro would never make this in their regular line so I think the best we can hope for is for it to be a Target exclusive instead of a TRU or Walmart Exclusive

I always thought if Galoob was ever to release another Action Fleet toys this would have been the next step. Till now only Tomy made the AT-TE Drop Ship (Gunship) but it is so small and fragile alas...

I want to say that this was up for auction at ebay. It was a ridiculous price, but pretty daggone sweet nontheless. I think Master Fett sent me the pic. He also sent me an ebay link for a sweet dropship and another atte too, but I can't remember where I saved the pic. Let us hope hasbro comes up with something half as good and we will be in business.

How ridiculous was it (if you remember)? I can't imagine Hasbro putting the cost into the at-te that it took to make this custom... it would probably exceed the at-at's price. However, I know I would pick one up that looked like this. Probably willing to go up to 150.00 if it looked this good.

I want to say it was in the 5 to 6 hundred dollar range. Where is MFett when you need him. Do you remember Shawn?

At this point, cost means nothing.  Just get it done Hasbro!!!  I do think that they should go the lenth and width of the Falcon and about 1/2 to 3/4 the height of the AT-AT.  That should make it big enough not to suck, but not make it super expensive.

For me, most likely. For now. 90% of mycollection is still boxed if it's bigger than an action figure - I just have no room to display. I usually open the boxes and check it out, but then put it back in and store it in the back room  :'(

Well, well, well..... what a question to get the troops riled up Lt.
IF the said piece was to be in the price range indicated by another fellow trooper, I would in fact buy two of said pieces possibly three, one to get mired in mud by the young padawans, one to be placed into an indoor growing forest in which boxes do not survive and another to hold, cheerish and obey until said piece gets opened.

We have no reason to doubt the JD Target intel as they've been right on the money about the Ultimate BP's ect., but upps to Starfox who was responsible for reporting the news of the AT-TE to us back at the Dallas Fan Days event.

I just hope they make it out a good quality plastic and it does not collapse under its own weight... I have some older atst's that list to the side and become customs... these were a cheap plastic. the walkers.. the legs are great but the flooring in the troop compartment crappy!.

All I need now is a release date and this is one happy collector.  Although Hasbro confirmation would be nice...

Yeah, it's obvious that it's way too small. But I guess Hasbro figured price was more important than accuracy. I mean, honestly, if Hasbro were to make an accurate sized... anything, the cost would probably be way too much for anyone to happily pay for it. I say happily, because we all know that people would buy it, but then spend the next 6 months b*tching about it.

It's definitely not LEGO because I have the LEGO AT-TE. If it is a Hasbro product then it's really, REALLY tiny, but so was the AT-AT and we all love those. All of us minus one at least.  8)

I think the scale looks just fine... of course we won't know for sure until we see figures next to it.  

I wasn't expecting it to be exactly to scale by any means, and realistically, I think this could be about as close to what we could expect from Hasbro.  I'm very pleased with how this looks so far, and I'm glad it's not too big because if it was, I don't think it would even fit on one of my display shelves.

Scale smale, looks great, glad they made it. I still want 3.

As mentioned above, the AT-At is not to scale and people love it, if it was to scale it would be expensive and too large for peoples collections.

Here's some pics and info I found over on potf2








"here is an opinion about the size, coming from a yodasnews member

 
Quote
I took some measurements using Photoshop from those screenshots.

Hulk hands are approximately 10 inches from bottom of wrist to top of fist as shown in the video on the table. Knowing this measurement enabled me to use the tool in photoshop to measure the rest.

In photoshop you can measure things even when they are in perspective like this. Using the table, walls, and the chair as well, I can ascertain that the AT-TE is at least 10 inches to 12 inches tall. Using that mark, and cross-referencing the height of the AT-AT (actual-not toy) (15.5M) against the AT-TE (actual) 5.02M, we ARE getting an AT-TE close to scale.

Also using that mark for the height, can place the length of the toy AT-TE at between 1.5 and 2 ft! As well again using these measurements, it's at least 12 inches wide! That's right on the mark give or take a small margin (within acceptance of true scale). The cannon measures approx 2in "tall" from where it meets the body to the topside of the cannon. Can't get a length of the cannon as there is no picture to give me a reference for the toy. The body section is approx 4-4.5 inches tall, easily fitting clonetroopers! Which leaves us with 3.5-4 inches of space under the body. A close squeeze yes for clones to walk underneath, but the point being it does appear they CAN be place under it, yet fully upright!

Given all of these measurements, it appears we have an AT-TE toy that is 80% (at worst) to 95% (at best) scale with the figures.

I'll believe it when I see it, as far as how "close" to scale it is. Take a look at this pic:



Now, think about how tall the Clones are in toy form (3.75") and look at where the Clones are standing under the AT-TE (NOT the Clone in the foreground - a little more to the right, directly under the AT-TE) it looks as if you should be able to stand a Clone on top of a Clone and NOT reach the bottom  of the AT-TE, which would make that area at least 7" tall. And then the rest of the body appears to be at least 4 "Clones" tall, or another 14" in toy scale, which would bring it to around 21" tall.

In his estimate of 10" - 12" tall, that's only about 50% scale. Which is right around the proper scale for Hasbro.

Someone needs to buy them guys some new rulers.

I'm going to bring a ruler with me to Toy Fair so I can get some accurate measurements, and then we'll see what's up. Can't wait to see the look on their faces when I whip out my tape measure  :P

No mention of it, it's just in the background while the camera swings past.

Since I've been to TF 4 or 5 years now, it's not a question of luck getting in - it'll be a question of luck not getting kicked out.  I think I'll save my tape measure till the end of everything and then whip it out, just in case security doesn't like the idea  :D

If it does, then we can kiss our chances goodbye of them following up with another big item in the future. 

I'm not trying to single you out, but if you want to see large scale items of any sort moving forward, you should hope that this does NOT go on clearance.

And for the sake of the hobby, I hope you only see them at full price and that they sell very well.

What you see in the pictures is what's seen in the video. That's it. No mention of it. Not a word. No other Star Wars items are shown. No features. I don't think the speaker even says the letters A, T, or E in any of his conversations.

I don't see how they could make something like this to scale and sell it for under $200.00... and if they did make it around that price, it wouldn't sell.  This looks like our best bet... and I think it's great news for the hobby.

Sorry guys, no pictures with the tape measure  :-\

While I did have it with me, in my backpack - I swear I did - when we got to Splashdown Studios they had us check our bags/coats... and in the mad dash to be first into the Hasbro showroom, I left the tape measure in my backpack. And while it would have been funny to see a shot with the ruler in there, the AT-TE is actually quite HUGE and impressive, to say the least.

I can't wait to get my hands on a few of these for the collection and battle dioramas!! Now if only they could give it motorized walking action  8)

I know this my be a stupid question but how many figures fit in the main cockpit?Also,for what I saw there doesn't seem to be enough room for 20 figures and it is difficult to see a lot of the troop compartments.I know that it was probably difficult to take pics of the whole thing.

From what I can see it looks like 12 in the back, 4 under the gun, 1 or 2 in the main cockpit, and 1 in the gun. That makes 18 or 19 so im sure there is another spot or 2 that I just cant see from the pics

I'm pretty sure it was 1 in the cockpit, 4 under the guns, 12 in back, and 1 up top. So that makes 18. There may have been some other spots where they could go as well, but the room was buzzing with activity and it was hard to get some pictures or look at stuff while trying to hold back from punching people in the head for pushing and crowding like children.

But those are all so out of scale... whatever though, if you prefer OT stuff, that's your right.  I like the OT too, but this is without a doubt better than the vintage molds that were created 25-30 years ago.

Actually the at-te looks pretty damn good to me, and I like the vintage falcon and the at-at.  Of course I like the OT and the PT.

I'll agree with that assement.
Lights,  sounds and none of the vintage molds have an automated opener. Maybe this is a sign of god things to come, maybe the new falcon will have all new nice features as well.

A better looking AT-AT too would be nice.

It's simply more accurate in terms of what we see in the films - I think what you're saying is that you prefer the vintage designs more.  If they end up making some of the vintage vehicles more accurate with today's standards, then yeah, I'll agree that they might be better than the AT-TE.  For example, the Falcon is supposedly being remade.  If they come up with a more accurate version than the vintage one, then I think the AT-TE will have some serious competition.

Nope it's going to be someone like Chewie, I've heard he's had to replace the drivers side springs on his car 3x's now because that is the side his wallet rides on!  ;D ;)

I'm hoping to get two... ideally one to leave as is, the second to paint Imperial gray and have Imperial AT-ST drivers in it with a few Stormtroopers... but one for sure to leave as is.

I just want to say that all of my previous derogatory comments regarding the AT-TE were "tongue in cheek" as they say.

It's true that I really don't like the prequels much at all, but I may add a boxed AT-TE to my collection just so I can say that I have one. We'll see.

If a new Falcon comes out, I'll spend my cash on that before the AT-TE though.

I read at Jedi Temple Archives they're using the AT-TE to sort of gauge sales for the larger vehicles to see if they do well. They even went as far as to suggest do not wait for clearance but I'll wager these ain't long for the shelves. I kmow I won't wait for a red tag, now for 3, 4, or 5 that's a different story!

I think someone asked in the Hasbro Q&A on another site and they said they had no plans right now. As for making one out of a gunship? No way, that gunship is WAY too small.

Judging from that pic, and from the size of the AT-TE that I saw first hand at Toy Fair, you're going to need a gunship about 4 - 5 feet long. Hey, if you can get a U.S.S. Flagg from the vintage G. I. Joe line that might give you a good starting point.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see one made, and I'm sure that somewhere along the line, some crazy customizer will make one.

We are lucky to get the AT-TE, but a drop ship no way. it would be way to large.
Maybe someday I can say yes way, but I don't see it.

if they did make something large, I'd rather see a Nebluan Frigete. (medical ship)

My closet is shoe-horn status or you couldn't get another piece of cardboard in there if you try. The room is at max capacity and the wife isn't too down with it spilling into the family room, but it is!  :P  The next step next year is going to have to be a rental unit storage or the like, but you hate thinking about leaving ANYTHING in a place like that.

I'm sure someone will do it. You just have to give us a chance for the AT-TE to actually come out before we start building s**t to use with it.

I saw this item listed in a non target store database for $99.99 so that's good news for me maybe then I'll have a shot at getting one!

That looks more like an AT-

It's tiny, probably the original Hasbro prototype.

Same here DarthDan. Have to get at least 1, but then the Falcon is getting in the way of a TF that I am wanting. So I am NOT sure IF I will get it on the 26th as my mind is going back and forth whether to get the falcon or TF.

After coming so close the other night, I finally scored an AT-TE from a different Target last night.    Put it together and played with all the features.   It's cool but the Falcon is better.    Maybe I'm OT biased, but I wasn't too impressed and it's true....the legs pop out VERY easily.    I will be getting a bunch of the Animated Clones to fill this puppy up.    I have a local collector friend who is actually planning on buying three total to army build them.   :o    Nice idea but a bit crazy even for me.   

I was gonna buy two, but with everything being available at once, it is too much for the budget.

I probably will wait on the AT-TE for a month, since it's such a high priced item I'm sure it's safe enough to wait on. My Wally World had a display of Falcons a week or so ago, so I defiantly will be scoring one this week.

Once you get them in place, and alligned in a stable position, it's fine. But then if you want to pick it up and move it, the darn legs want to pop out of place at the joints.

It's still worth it though in my opinion.  It's one hell of a diorama centerpiece.

I think it comes in a variety of colors. I've seen it in red, blue, yellow, etc. It's almost like a clay substance, but very sticky.

no  it's usually colored( mine happens to be off white) but does look like silly puddy, most stores (walmart, etc.) would have this for like a buck or two.  What's nice is that it is completely removable from hard surfaces.

It won't yellow (as far as I know) because it stays soft and sticky, it won't harden. It will, however, get dirty, so if you're using it in an area that gets dusty it may show some black dirt marks after a while.

As for Hasbro paint, that I'm not sure of. I know the stuff I had was yellow, and I used it for a while, and it never harmed the plastic or the paint on the figures that I used it on. But your results may vary.

on paper it leaves an oily residue, but not on plastic from my experience.  This stuff is comonly used to hang posters.

I just got my AT-TE earlier today.  It was just sitting on the shelf at Target.  Didn't need to pull it from the back or anything.  I was ready to pass on it (for just a bit) so that my wallet wouldn't take an extra $100 hit on the 26th, but I was talked into it. ;)

Unfortunately, I'm on vacation.  And I'm an opener.  Unless I can find some way to get it open, admire it, and then perfectly re-box it for the trip home, it's staying sealed.  The suspense is killing me.  I can only imagine what it'll be like for the BMF... :-\

Go to a store buy some ziploc bags for the small parts, so ya don't loose em, and open that sucker..... hell I opened my AT-AT in a hotel in another state and brought home in airplane luggage when it last came out.

I broke down and bought one at Target yesterday.I too haven't taken it out of the box.Hey I get 10% off because I work for the bulleye.I am suprised by the size of the box it comes in.I was expecting it to be a lot bigger then it acually is.Sense it doesn't come with pre installed batteries,it's great to leave in the box.

Opened up my AT-TE yesterday with my 3-yr-old son watching, and I think it was the most excited he's been in his entire life. I really wish I was video-taping it, because it was just freakin' priceless. This vehicle is by far one of the nicest things Hasbro has ever crafted. I absolutely love it and think every Star Wars collector should have one of these. Worth every single dollar!

I can see the little guy's reaction in my mind, he was probably all over you putting it together. It is a pretty cool toy. My one and only gripe is the legs falling off evertime I move this bad boy!

Did you read the instruction manual on how to put those legs on it? You have to put the correct leg in each slot, otherwise they will fall off all the time. On the inside part of each leg is a mark like LR (left rear), RR (right rear), LF (left front) and RF (right front), and you have to make sure they go to where they're supposed to go. I had them in the wrong place, and I was starting to think I had a defective AT-TE. After putting them in the right place, all was good.

For some reason, I found myself more excited about opening this than the BMF last night. And I must say after putting it together and watching my 3 girls play with it, Hasbro really knocked it out of the park with this one. legs are very difficult to manage, even in the correct slots, but the playability of this vehicle is unbelievable. The lights, the different options for the button activation, the missiles, the opening of the hatch with a button. Perfect 10 on the Boz scale for a toy. I honestly cannot see the falcon topping it.

Yeah it really is the middle leg issue!  ???

I just keep thinking about my old POTF At-At. No leg problems there. Maybe Kenner just had it's Sh@t together. JMHO

My one and only gripe is the legs falling off evertime I move this bad boy!

Did you read the instruction manual on how to put those legs on it? You have to put the correct leg in each slot, otherwise they will fall off all the time. On the inside part of each leg is a mark like LR (left rear), RR (right rear), LF (left front) and RF (right front), and you have to make sure they go to where they're supposed to go. I had them in the wrong place, and I was starting to think I had a defective AT-TE. After putting them in the right place, all was good.

 :haha: :roflmao:            amazing how they could build stuff better 30 years ago..... >:D

I have a question as well on the opening of the hatch.

Does ANYONE'S AT-TE have trouble opening all 3 of the hatches when you press the button because mine does? Only 2 or sometimes 1 of the hatches opens when I press it but sometimes all of them open on the 3rd try of opening and closing.

Yes, mine does the exact same thing. Sometimes all three open up, and other times only two of them open up. Weird.

I think the trick is in the order that you close the hatch. I can't remember exactly, but Madison read the directions and you have to close them in the correct order for the ramp to detach...If she wasn't pulling my leg.

no that's right, you have to close the back 1st and then the sides.

My little guy reacted the same way as dustrho's. VERY EXCITED! This morning was the perfect rainy morning, with lots of Clone Wars action.  :D This Clone mover just rocks!

That was a great pic, Sandtrooper Dan!     Those were the days!    You'd lay out all your toys in the living room floor while cartoons were playing in the background and that was your schedule for the day....have a Star Wars battle and think of nothing else!   *sigh*   I wanna go back!!!   :D

 

we all just need to win the lottery, than we could do this as adults...... :P

Used a $10 Target coupon to get mine today, this thing is huge, gotta love it!!!!


The leg thing is a bit of an aggravation.  But, I'll cut Hasbro slack on this.  It's a beautiful diorama piece for collectors.

 ;)

Not such as a biggy as I thought it was gonna be. mine tend to stay on pretty good, they do come off easy with some help.

My 3 kids loved it as muc as i did, lots to do and big enuto share without

i looked at wal-mart again today and the price on the display said $69.90.....when I scanned it though it was the full $99.96.  I couldn't find an employee to give it to me for the 'advertised' price though, but I will try again
Seems someone just flipped the 9 to read as a 6......

well BA, I went back to that same wal-mart to check and see if they fixed the price yet on the display, and low and behold, they did NOT!  The toy manager was there and she asked me what was wrong.  I told her that I came in yesterday and this price is wrong on here and wouldn't sell it to me for the cheaper price.  Today I come in and it's still marked wrong.  She got her scanner and checked it and said, you are right, thank you for finding this.  I reply, no problem.  She then asks if I want it for the cheaper price since I found it....are you kidding me, heck yeah i'll take it for $69.90!  She contacted the other toy manager and he says no, it's $99 but you can talk to a CSM.  Well we strolled to the front of the store and she got a CSM and explained it to them and said something about me being a good guy and coming in everyday, and BAM!  Sold it to me for $69.90.  Another happy day in paradise!  My wife was right yesterday and told me not to make a scene, so I didn't and now good karma has worked for me  :)

As you may know, I've been on vacation and thus unable to open all my stuff.  Well, I got home last night and wasted no time in getting to my recent aquisitions.

The AT-TE does not disappoint.  Based on what I had seen here, I had thought the problem with the legs was going to be irritatingly prevalent.  For me, however, the legs have given me no trouble.  At all.  I've had a foot pop off once or twice, but that's all.

I'm stoked that we've got lights and sounds in our vehicles again.  And they're loud.  My favorite ones are the walking sounds and ramp deployment.  Even with the sound off, the ramp is pure awesome.

So yeah, all in all, I'm very satisfied with this.   ;D

Sounds like everyone is having a blast witht the new ATTE. I also havent had any issues with the legs............probably because its still in the box.....LOL. Speaking of which, I know most of you guys on here dig into this stuff like kids at christmas and couldnt care less of the condition of the boxes, but have you noticed that the ship boxes in this wave are really tough to find in Mint shape(especially the falcon and ATTE). I probably went to 4 dif stores to find em that werent crushed in one way or another.
