#74: Star Wars Imperial AT-AT

Meet Max! At long last, Hasbro's newest AT-AT is here. It's huge! You kind of have to see it in person to get a true grasp of its scale. It's over two feet tall, standing higher than my knees. Not only does it look really cool, it's filled with neat little play features including an extra vehicle (and it makes more sense than the Millennium Falcon toy's). Starting at the head, there are two missile firing launchers, and the chin cannons move back and forth with a switch. Inside the head there are seats for both pilots, and room for four more figures to stand around, as well as a display. The main body has several opening hatches. Inside there are a couple platforms, a couple rappelling cables, some view screens, and the bottom opens up and there's a retractable cable so Luke can climb up and throw a thermal detonator inside. The rear of the body opens up and a platform slides out which can hold the included vehicle a speeder bike. There are also a couple more view screens in there. On top of all that, it lights up, plays sounds, and plays clips of dialogue. Batteries not included, unfortunately. Also included is an AT-AT drive figure, different from the one recently released during the Legacy Collection. I think that about covers everything. Also, on the sticker sheet, there are some stickers for extra battle damage.

I think this AT-AT may be Hasbro's masterpiece as far as large Star Wars vehicles go. It is seriously epic. If you can find a spot for it in your home, it is definitely worth picking up.

Oh, and why Max? Why, after General Veers, of course.
