    Glimpse of GH AT-AT package mockup

    Steve just pointed this out to me. In the Canadian Toy & Hobby Fair coverage over on ActionFigureNews.ca: http://www.actionfigurenews.ca/board...read.php?t=265

    The second row, far right, is the bottom of the Galactic Heroes AT-AT box mockup. You can just barely make it out in the upper right area, there's not much to see but you can see the artist drawing of a snowtrooper on white speeder bike, and the drawing of the vehicle legs.

    wasn't it just a few short years ago that Hasbro told us that GH vehicles didn't sell, so they wouldn't make more? I'm sure it's in one of the earliest Q&A's or from a panel at a show. What did they base it on? Continual re-releases of the falcon & x-wings (and those crappy well, not EU, not concept but weird vehicles) that didn't sell. Finally they make new vehicles... and guess what? They sell! (wonder if the same would apply to making quality playsets/diorams?)

    This looks amazing... as much as I wanted one, didn't think they would do it in the GH line.
    Ex-wife to me in the toy aisle: "Why do I sense we've picked up another plastic lifeform?"

    Thanks to sebillba for the trade!

    Those Kota spinoff toys look cooler than all the SW stuff on that page combined and multipled to the Nth power. Kota rocks, and stuff.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Oh c'mon, how can you not love that GH AT-AT? If I only buy one Star Wars toy this year, it's going to be that.

    Unless of course Hasbro decides to give the BMF treatment to a new "realistic" AT-AT. Then I'll buy two things this year.

    So, would a BMF AT-AT be called a BAT-AT?

    Excellent work! I hadn't seen that. I am guessing that's still somewhat unfinished, the art looks somewhat more CGI than usual. A friend just asked me if I thought it was cute, the answer is kinda "not as much as most GH", it's really quite bold for this line. In some ways, it's better than the 3.75" line's AT-AT.

    The vehicles aren't selling all that great in my neck of the woods, they sell ok but Hasbro's got too many out at once. Their original answer I think was apt for the time, they didn't sell then. It's only now that they're less frequent and are exclusives so there's no worry about moving more product to more retailers is it working.
