:wink:

SA Two-packs...If they were Walmart exclusives they would be about $25.66....Ouch.

Price is right about $60...

For what you get, that's probably fair in today's market. Problem is, many of us already have this vehicle (some have multiples)... it's been available now several times, so Walmart could have trouble pushing this for the full price.

It seems to have slightly new paint deco to match Jedha... and hopefully the driver has a new head (at least it's the awesome SA body).

Thoughts? Who plans on picking this up at full price?

:wink:


I want this. But I'm gonna wait because:
1) If this came out on, or near, Dec 10 both Christmas + RO release would have supported it . Luckily this is hitting shelves in January.
2) the product was a surprise.
3) several chicken walkers recently released.
4) i don't think $60 is a great price point for an existing mold. I think $49.95 would have been the sweet spot.

Saw 3 AT-ST's w/driver at WalMart this morning...don't think they're going anywhere anytime soon.

All three looked smashed to bits, though---amazingly---each box appeared unopened and in immaculate condition. I looked more closely at one of the vehicles and the joints were snapped and the entire body was heaped in a pile at the bottom of the package. The plastic didn't appear to very thick where it had snapped, so that worries me in terms of quality control.

Not that I was looking to get one of these anyway, but sheesh... :roll: Not convinced that the joints on these are really much better than the last incarnation. Ugh.

JTA did a review and the legs on their sample were very sturdy, also your sig is one of my favorite quotes ever, hilarious!

Already on clearance? Wow. That is crazy. Must be a store that didn't have room for them in their reset?




no, that was the regular price. whoever marked them up as the same priced as the u-wings and strikers.

Yep, their review was spot on. I also have the new AT-ST and the legs are great.

Ah, I see. Odd! But that happens sometimes.

I'd buy another at $40 (as long as it wasn't all crushed in the box).
