Ever since I watched Empire Strikes Back back in the early 80’s, I was hooked on the awesomeness of the All Terrain Armored Transport aka AT-AT. I was a huge fan of Dinosaurs. This was just that, but made of metal and equipped with laser guns. My parents were never able to afford an AT-AT toy back in the 80’s. I always used my imagination and became an AT-AT myself crushing my Star Wars figures with my hands. (yes, you gotta use what you have, imagination and creativity when you’re a kid).
Now, 25+ years later as I can afford toys that I always wanted, Hasbro has made a successor to their old 80’s mold that was never to scale. They call it the Mega AT-AT. Mega, yes. AT-AT, sure. It lives up to the name. Capable of holding up to 20 figures, this thing stands over 2 feet tall!!!. Onward to the pics!
No AT-AT is complete without accessories! Damn you George Lucas and Hasbro for not including enough figures. I picked up Luke with grappling hook, extra Snow Trooper, AT-AT commander and battle packs to accompany the included AT-AT driver.
Cockpit view. You can easily fit about 7 figures in there. I would fill it up with more Snowtroopers if I can find anymore. The drivers and the commander will do now. The cool thing is phrases from the movie and lights go off when you hit the little hidden button.
I must say the toy designers did their homework on this redesign. This AT-AT towers over the old design by another half. It is more to scale and has many features that keep you coming back for more. Stay tuned for a detailed comparison and the continual build of this play set. PEW PEW PEW!!!!
