Maybe the extras are on clearance now. That is if you can still find one.

Oooooohhh... I'll have to keep a lookout. I didn't want to spend $30 since I have both my vintage one and the '96 POTF one - but I'll spend $20 to add another!! :)

Hmm....The only reason I'd want it was for Paploo.....but, I'm not too big on it myself....I already have Speeders, and my lil' bro has a POTF AT-ST

Whick Ewok was Paploo? I remember in the cartoon that the two main guy Ewoks were Wicket and another... was that Paploo or Teebo?

Yeah, I saw the AT-STs at TRU last night. They had 5 of them in
great condition. I had to go back today and pick one of them up.
All 5 were still there.

Then when I was about to leave, I saw an employee busting open a new case of figures to help someone else. He did the same for me and I got 2 Dookus. He made my day. I've been looking for Dooku for almost 2 weeks.

$19.99 is a good deal for the AT-ST. I bought one for 29.99 and the girl at TRU said "Oh there is a 20% off coupon today. "I didn't ask any questions and just said "cool". I didn't have a coupon and never heard or saw of any coupon. But she did it anyway and the total for it was about $26.00 w/ tax. She was a cool chick.

Also did you guys notice the three guns on the AT-ST on almost everyone are pointed down. I took a thin piece of wire, made a hook on it and shoved it down the tab where you would open the box and pulled the guns up so they point sraight w/o unsealing the box. It worked good.

$19.99 or $29.99 I haven't even seen one in the stores. Distribution sucks. Clones are rare here and pegwarmers in Sacramento, What gives?

Paploo is that little pesky Ewok that steals the Speederbike at the Endor Bunker to lure away those Imperial bucket heads.

PS: is it true that the AT-ST doesn't come with stickers?

Yes, it's true....

I Just got one, opened it up, shucked Paploo out of it, and took it back (Ain't I a stinker?)

I woulda kept it, but the lack of stickers turned me off......there's not even a 'hatch sticker' to cover up that bare spot on the bottom of the top hatch.....

I'm sure someone will really appreciate that.

Well, since every other one I saw had Paploo pulled, I figured what the heck.....

So what if that labels me an ***......

it'll end up on clearance, and I'll get it for a pittance......

Hey thanx. You know it's for that very reason that stores stop carrying some things.

:mad:

Wow, so now you're a thief. Why didn't you just swipe him from the box while you were still in the store? Then you wouldn't have to have carried that huge package home!

That was a pretty dispicable thing to do Taichi. I'm getting sick of people coming onto these boards to brag about how they are 'outsmarting' the system because "everybody else does it." Grow up, you ignorant little child!:mad: It's people like you that give SW collectors, SW fans and the human race in general a bad name!

I too got the AT-ST for 20 bucks and I must say I like it. My only gripe is the speeder bike. The back flaps are VERY fragile, the ones that pop up as the speeder lifts. I finally got frustrated with mine and removed them. Still for 20 bucks you can't beat the set!

I believe I'd take that Paploo back to TRU. Having an extra toy for yourself sure isn't worth the shame of being branded a thief.

you sir are a thief. SHAME on you! stay away from my collection! You might walk away with my sandcrawler or something! Have you ever watched these movies seriously? I mean, did all the light side, dark side stuff go right over your head? If you are a young person..ok kids do dumb things. If you are over 18 it's just a matter of time before you do something really lame! Good luck

You know brentfett, I have the same problem with the flaps. So I compared it to the POTF2 speeder and its constucted the same. Must be that gummy plastic they are using now:(

Yep, the flaps are weaker this time round, and the AT-ST can't stand straight for long. That's one thing I don't like about the new stuff...cutting corners with this cheap soft plastic/rubber. Grr... :frus: I don't know if I'd even pay $20 for the thing, although I'd sure pay it for the POTF version if they threw in a POTF speederbike... :)

Please don't bend the Wookie!
