It does look cool in that video although a little small but the resolution was well below satisfactory

Yes, you are.

but in the clip does the camera pan over the supposed AT-TE or is it just at a distances.Again,I wasn't able to view the clip on CNN's site.

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.

You know I will. And I'm going to try my best not to let any other sites get a shot with the tape measure in there  ;)

With seeing that small pic in the background of that AT-TE from that toy video, this is just now a matter of time of waiting. In the long run, everyone that has been waiting with excitement will be truly glad when they get it and very thankful that hasbro has made it.

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.

Hasbro has really kicked ass with this thing!!  I was worried, but they really came through for us.

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.

the packaging/box says comes with clone trooper figure, so you get a fig with the AT-TE
