Paul’s Peg > More Big AT-AT Rumors!

Remember when I whipped you all up into a frenzy about the big AT-AT (especially you Mr. Topless Robot? hehe)? Well, there’s more rumors spreading across the net on what this thing might look like and if true, we could be looking at one of the coolest toys ever:

From Rebelscum:

According to this eyewitness account, it looks like a Turbo Tank on legs, with an interior similar to the inside of the Turbo Tank, but with 2 levels, opening doors, a gun rack, and an underside hatch for Luke to slice into. There are 2 strings that come out of a side panel like on a rescue helicopter. The neck seal is rubber, and the head holds 6 figures inside, including General Veers. Plus, the rear opens for a Blizzard Force speeder bike.

If it’s as big as rumored it’s not just big, it’s friggen HUGE! Here’s a picture that should give you some sort of idea on size:

Imagine that with a head and some legs and you’ve got one huge toy. You can also check out a rumored picture of the thing here, but it doesn’t give any sense of scale. It is also not painted and there’s some pretty bad lighting, so it looks completely unimpressive, even if it is the real deal.

Now remember, this is all speculation at this point. Many of the rumors that hit about the big Millennium Falcon before its premiere were proved false, but many were also true. Somehow I doubt the head would fit six figures, considering you only see three in the cockpit in the movie. Still, even if half the rumors of this thing are true then we are still dealing with one hell of an amazing toy.

    I'm glad I don't collect SW, because I'd never find room for something like this. I've still never really displayed the NECA Balrog.

  2. Six figures in the head?! That is frakking ridiculous if it's true. I don't know if I could find room for something that huge.

    @Newton Gimmick: This one can be your AT-AT king. Fearless leader of the robot camels.

  4. I want it, but I don't know if I'll pay $200 for it. I've already been army building AT-ATs.

    I just want the main rumour to be true – I want a BMFAT-AT. And that didn't stand for Big Mill Falcon either……

    I often wonder how dumb companies have to be about Toy-Shows – no kids allowed and then no free publicity by allowing anyone to take photos of your hard-work….because then people might, like…..see it.

    Idiots.

  6. @Mysterious Stranger: Yeah, I've only seen ONE leaked photo and supposedly it was from a guy who took it through a window.

    so… it poops a speeder bike? that's pooptacular!!

    This was apparently on display at Toy Fair UK this week. But based on the report I read Hasbro wasn't allowing ANY photos, most likely wanting to save the big reveals for Toy Fair here in the States in a couple weeks.

  9. Now even I would be interested in it. That would be so damn cool.

    But when are we oing to get a BIG BIG Star Destroyer or Deathstar Playset.

  10. I'm in the market for a new bedside table…

    Also… gun racks FTW!

    NO SPACE! GAH!

    I don't really need a bed, right? Can I use this as my desk? The Falcon makes an acceptable coffee table ><
