Vintage Vehicle Showcase Week 6: Scout Walker (AT-ST)



Released in 1982, the Scout Walker was available in either the ESB or RotJ packaging for $14.99. The AT-ST had walking action legs that moved when you pressed a button on the back (after unlocking it with a slide switch (see 3rd photo below)). It came with 4 moveable guns (one main, two side, one hatch), and a top hatch that that opened in a couple ways (see below photos). The first position was for your figure to peek out of like in the movie where Chewie plucked the driver from, and the second position was so that you could actually get your figure in and out of the cockpit easily. I used to have the box for this one too, but I can't find it at all. It must have gotten lost at some point. Anyway, some photos of the ESB Scout Walker:

Here is mine right here! It's even the one of the few things I still have from my childhood.
There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

Nice Walker, Spice!  ;D

And hey . . . after a recent photo shoot today, I found the box for this one! Woohoo! I knew it was somewhere!

The box art on this one is just fantastic, too. It even depicts the AT-ST with its two top opening positions.

My original is still in that shape as well.

Only missing the very top gun. This was one of my fav star wars toys of all time.
