    AT-TE Carrier/Transport Gunship, will we get one?

    What do you guys think the chances of Hasbro giving us a AT-TE Carrier/Transport Gunship? Now that I have the DVD, I paused it and the carrier only has one cockpit, so maybe it would be cheaper. I guess we need a AT-TE 1st. here's a shot of the Transport from the DVD

    Custom AT-TE to scale with Hasbro's 3-3/4 inch action figures in progress

    Some of you might know me as the guy who built the Sandcrawler and the AT-AT Walker or the 35ft Tantive IV. I am currently working on 2 AT-TEs to scale with the 3-3/4 inch line of figures. My estimates put the model at about 6ft in length.

    For those interested in working from my recipe, check out

    for directions.

    If hasbro were to make a scaled down AT-TE which would seem likely should it happen. Then I reckon an AT-TE carrier would be cool to go with it. In fact, given how mch less of the gunship frame there is on the carrier even down to not having those cone shaped top pieces, they could pack the carrier in with the AT-TE. This would push up the price somewhat but if the carrier is pretty much simply wings and cockpit with the grabbing mechanism then it shouldn't push the price too high. If the AT-TE has some small compromises made in the design like only having one interior space for troopers, the scale being smaller, it'll make it easier to produce and cheaper to produce.
    It's all ver y well saying that it should be scaled correctly but none of the vehicles are scaled correctly. Most are half scale and some are scaled down by one third. I think just to have the AT-TE would be something. It's a unique design, the legs are funky and the top cannon is cool. but apart from the legs and the gun it doesn't do much. Adding in the carrier with a single pilot cockpit and the grabbing arms just gives it that edge that would make it a must buy vehicle.

    Michael, it's cool that you make the larger scale vehicles but i suspect for most people they don't have six feet of room to devote to a scale AT-TE. I think for most people they only have space for a Hasbro scale one.

    Michael rocked my world....I am moving and now I have to make sure that the diorama I want to make for the Geonosian battle can include a AT TE that will ROCK the house....

    I had read or heard that the LAAT/c and the LAAT/v versions are slightly larger than the LAAT/i that we currently have.

    Okay... it's in the new INSIDER with Jango on the cover.

    But even so, with a smaller scale they would still go nicely together as one super pack, just like a Jedi starfighter with hyperdrive ring would go nicely together. Achievable but just slightly more expensive.

    Aye, it WILL be expensive... I'll be passing on the larger ships until at least the next film... unless something truly amazing is released.

    One thing I just thought about was, a Carrier might not sell well if it doesn't come with a AT-TE. What would a kid do with a carrier alone? How would it be packaged? The box would have to show the carrier holding or dropping the AT. It may be deceiving. Although Hasbro put all the figures on the Arena box and it didn't even come with one.

    I'd definitely grab one if it were made. The gunship line is awesome. It would be nice to have room to fit troops properly.
