AT-TE Review

It's here and I got it for a bargain price of £80 from Toys R Us.

Opening the box, this thing is a real beast! The legs and gun are separate, but the body is just in one big lump and it's huge. Attaching the legs and guns is easy so within a few minutes you have your AT-TE ready to go.

It does come with some stickers, but only a few. They almost seem like and after thought as they really don't add that much to it. The one thing I am a little surprised about is that it doesn't come with batteries. It requires 3x AA, which they could have easily slipped in the box considering the price tag!

And let's face it, you need to put the batteries in as the sounds are great. It has loads of phrases and a great walking sound. And it's very very loud.

There is also a light on the main gun which lights up the barrel and targeting screen. Again a few more lights inside would have been nice.

The figure that comes with it is just the standard Clone trooper, so nothing special.

Overall I am really pleased with this as I was in two minds about getting it. The detail is great, lots of little bits and bobs all over the shop. All the guns on the front move when you move a single gun which is nice. The sounds when you open the back hatch are really fantastic.

I'm not quite sure where I am going to put this though as it's about the size of a small dog.

Now all Hasbro need to make is a new republic gunship that is in scale with the AT-TE and can be used as the dropship for this. That would be fantastic!!!!
