Uh-oh! 2 Heavyweights have just entered the Arena!
What's going to happen next?
In tonight's exciting Battle of the Machines we have a terrible fight lined up for you tonight! The safeties on all the guns come unlocked and the heavy artillery is brought out!
Because tonight, it's the AT-AT versus the Millennium Falcon!
All things get a little crazy in war! And there's nothing crazier than the captain of the Millennium Falcon.
In one of the closer matches in the Battle of the Machines, Han Solo's freighter outran the Naboo Queen's Royal Starship, 41-29, speeding ahead of it with 58% of the votes. The Millennium Falcon sports a totally updated features list for its release in the modern line. The electronic effect is now electronic effects, plural: as the ship makes a cruise control sound, an incoming radar alert noise (from "A New Hope"), and let's you jump to light speed! And speed into battle the fastest ship in the galaxy does, with the Falcon's front dorsal and ventral blasters lighting up and featuring the sound effects from The Empire Strikes Back that were added to the movie for the hidden anti-personnel cannon on the ship's underbelly. More formidable for attack or defense, is the Millennium Falcon's turret cannon that boasts quad-lasers that an action figure can control while seated in the gunner chair. Speaking of seating, the Falcon seats 2 in the cockpit (if you can find a scrawny Chewie sculpt) and the ship can carry probably up to 10 more figures in the main hold. 3 can be positioned around the Dejerik Chess gameboard, while at least 3 others can smuggle themselves below deck in the Falcon's hidden contraband compartment. A boarding ramp raises and lowers, as do 3 manually and independently operated landing gear skids. The center one can be used as a "flight handle" to allow you to maneuver the Falcon in battle against other Star Wars vehicles.
And tonight this Rebel ship IS going to do battle! The Falcon takes on the Imperial Army's All-Terrain-Armored-Transport, or AT-AT!
This juggernaught crushed the Rebel Snowspeeder 100-25 or with 80% of the vote! With armor too strong for blasters, the towering Imperial Walker could probably carry over a half-dozen snowtrooper action figures into combat in its troop carrier section, while under the command of the exclusive packed-in AT-AT Driver and AT-AT Commander (as close as we've come to General Veers' proper figure) seated in the cockpit. From there they can command the fully poseable behemoth machine's 4 giant legs, jointed in three points of articulation on each. Covering them, are the remote operated chin guns that fire with the air-piercing sound effects and red "laser" flashes one would come to expect from the firepower of this war machine. But that's not all: side-mounted anti-aircraft cannons feature missle tubes with launching projectiles capable of descimating any Rebel defenses! A remote lever in the transport section controls the aiming and directional tracking of the metal beasts head, and a electronic, backlit communications and tactical station replays dialog from the movie, and features the bone-crunching thunder a walker's legs make in action, as well as the terror-striking sound of many needle-like barrages of the walker's smaller artillery cannons.
Well we've brought out to you some of the best of the best as we fight on to determine which Hasbro Star Wars vehicle IS the best?
Now, you're going to vote and then I'm sure you'll all post - because there's going to be a lot to talk about between the fans of each of these two giants!
So what do YOU think?
