AT-AT



AT-AT (All Terrain Armored Transport)
w/ AT-AT Driver and Speeder Bike
Theme : Legacy Collection
Make : Hasbro
Year : 2010
Batteries : 3 "AA" batteries (Not included)



I went to the OG Star Wars Morning Madness - Countdown to Star Wars Shadows of the Dark Side promotion on the 24 July 2010.
It was held only at OG Orchard Point, 8.00am.
Heard it was a big crowd in the morning and the queue started at 7am!
I wasn't among the Star Wars fans in the morning crowd.
Was there in the evening and there were still quite many collectors getting the Star Wars action figures and stuffs.
They launched the reproduction of Star Wars Vintage card.
Buy 6 Vintage figures and get a Boba Fett redemption figure free.
I'm suprised to see this AT-AT has arrived in Singapore.
It's something that I've been waiting for, so I brought it immediately.
There is also a display of this AT-AT on that day but I'm not sure if it's still there now.

This AT-AT also includes a speeder bike!

Head part is well made. The flexible rubber connecting to the cockpit makes this AT-AT more realistic.












4 legs done up!


When I took out all the parts from the box, I was shocked to find the manual missing.
Then I looked through the parts, look at the box again... couldn't find it.
I was a little worried then but anyway, good that I've found it now.
Instruction manual is at the BACK of the inner packaging box (mine's stuck on a little tape.)


AT-AT's belly!


Battery compartment under the AT-AT's belly.
Phillips/cross head screwdriver required over here!


3 1.5v AA batteries required (Batteries not included)


All legs attached!














Almost done!


Ta-da!!


Boarding Hatch.
Can be open on both sides.
Each with a lift access.






Does this resembles "Scout Trooper?"


AT-AT head control.
Pull back the handle can lift the AT-AT's head.
Rotate the handle left or right, rotates the head too. But not much.







Vehicle bay.
Rear of AT-AT can fit in the Speeder bike.

Astro, great score on this vehicle. I believe it's much taller and bigger than the earlier version. This is really an awesome vehicle. Go and fill up the vehicle with all your troopers :P

Thank you desmond,
I'm not sure about the previous version but it's good if this is a bigger version than it's earlier version. Heehee...
