LEGO Imperial All Terrain Scout Transport (AT-ST)
LEGO Imperial All Terrain Scout Transport (AT-ST)
Offered by Bricks & Allsorts
Price: £599.00

5.0 out of 5 stars "Pursue the Rebels into the forest!", 4 Aug. 2008
Lego continue their Ultimate Collector Series with the Imperial All Terrain Scout Transport. The model is a very accurate representation of the walker and the detailing across the whole kit is excellent. Like the UCS X-Wing and TIE Interceptor, this kit is actually scaled closest to the standard 3 ¾ inch Star Wars figures.
The AT-ST has lots of features; the main twin blaster cannon on the chin can move up and down, the light blaster cannon on the left side of the head can rotate a full 360 degrees, the concussion grenade launcher on the right side of the head can rotate 360 degrees, the head can turn from side to side covering the front 70 degree arc, the front window plates move up and down, opening top hatch, the knee guards can move, the upper hull can lean forwards from the centre point, the primary upper leg joint can be set in two positions and the toes can move up and down - great for trampling on Ewok catapults.
There is also a nice little tech spec stand to go with it.
The kit comprises 1067 pieces and takes about 2 hours to build. It measures 40 cm tall, 22 cm across (at the feet) and is 25 cm long from chin gun barrel to aft hull. There are two decals to apply and the AT-ST is ready for action.
A great kit and a must have for the discerning Star Wars Lego collector.


Star Wars Clone Wars AT-TE (All Terrain Tactical Enforcer) Vehicle
Star Wars Clone Wars AT-TE (All Terrain Tactical Enforcer) Vehicle

5.0 out of 5 stars "Approaching Droid perimeter!", 4 Aug. 2008
Hasbro release their first vehicle from the new Clone Wars movie with the very impressive All Terrain Tactical Enforcer - the AT-TE. Although these were seen in Attack Of The Clones it's taken 6 years for this amazing combat walker to finally be released.
The AT-TE is massive, loaded with play features as well as electronic lights and sounds. The electronics require 3 AA batteries but it is still impressive without the effects as a model in its own right. The battery compartment is in the underside with a screw in plate.
Standing a massive 27 inches long (from upper mortar tip to aft cannon tip), 16.5 inches wide (across central feet) and 12.5 inches high, the AT-TE is an imposing addition to any Republic Army.
The front cockpit canopy opens upwards and there is room for one figure - a Clone Trooper with red insignia on his shoulders is included. The cannons on either side of the cockpit move in unison but can be set at any position and each fires a missile by pressing the button on the top of each gun. The large upper mortar cannon has a firing missile and with a press of the switch on the back parts of the gun light up and there are sounds for the cannon firing.
The sides to the front body open on either side to allow access to the four seats which are tucked away in a row inside, each one with its own computer display.
With a press of the button on the top of the back (with accompanying deployment sound effects and a Clone saying "Move out! Let's go!") the aft body opens right out to allow access to the troop compartment. The sides and roof deploy themselves and the roof goes right back down to ground level with steps on the inside so the troops can deploy quickly.
There is room for up to 14 Clone Troopers inside and there are storage racks for their DC-15Bs and a couple of compartments for electro-grenades. Twelve stand in the crew racks and two man the aft guns. Like the forward guns, these can be set in almost any position and each has a firing missile.
The six legs on the AT-TE are all poseable and allow for maximum range of movement, vehicle permitting, for playability. For kids, there are wheels that can be put in the bottom of each foot so they can simply roll it across the floor.
Apart from the lights on the upper mortar cannon there are three buttons in the middle at the top which have a variety of sound effects.
The left button has walking sound effects.
The middle button (which cycles through the following) has a Clone Trooper saying: "All forward positions are advancing.", "Approaching droid perimeter, we are undetected.", "All units fire at will!", "All units attack!" and "The Droid Army is in full retreat."
The right button (when pressed quickly) has blaster cannon sound effects. The right button (when pressed for a bit longer) has a Clone Trooper saying "All units fire at will!" followed by rapid fire blaster sounds.
There are nine decals to apply and away you go. The AT-TE is great without the sounds but kids will get a big kick out of all the effects.
An absolute must have for any Republic Army or any discerning Star Wars collection!

Hasbro Star Wars 2010 Legacy Collection Millennium Falcon Huge Ship w/Han and Chewbacca Figures, 30 inch
Hasbro Star Wars 2010 Legacy Collection Millennium Falcon Huge Ship w/Han and Chewbacca Figures, 30 inch

5.0 out of 5 stars "She may not look like much but she's got it where it counts kid!", 4 Aug. 2008
Hasbro release their first vehicle from the new Legacy Collection with an updated version of one of the most loved ships in the Star Wars saga - the Millennium Falcon. The original mould for the Falcon which has been used since the first one was made back in 1977 finally broke after producing Falcons for the original collections and then for the Power Of The Force and OTC range.
With a new mould required, modellers took it upon themselves to improve on the original and have given us one of the most impressive Star Wars vehicles ever created with a larger scale, more detailing, a vastly improved interior and loads of light and sound effects.
The Falcon comes partially assembled in the box (yes, it's bigger than that huge box!) But be warned, once assembled the pieces will NOT come undone - this is a one time assembly people!
The electronics require 3 AA batteries. The compartment is under the top of the aft hull which clips off and there is a screw plate underneath.
As an added bonus you get two figures Han Solo (2007's 30th Anniversary Collection #11) and Chewbacca (2004's Vintage Original Trilogy Collection #9) who come armed with a DL-44 and bowcaster respectively.
Now, onto the Falcon itself. A massive 10 inches high (when on landing feet), 24 inches across and 32 inches long, the ship is an impressive display piece.
For the lower hull there are 7 landing feet which plug into holes in the hull, the lower quad cannon and in the front hull there is the machine gun cannon (used against Snowtroopers in Echo Base) which can deploy out from the hull and has a firing missile in it.
On the upper hull there is the radar dish which rotates and angles, three firing missiles in the front section (the middle button makes a missile firing sound when pressed), illuminating lights in the forward docking claw, upper quad cannon (with two firing missiles) and glowing engine effects at the back. There is a button lever on the starboard side which moves the quad cannons (upper and lower and makes the gunner's seat move too) from side to side. When it does so you get cannon sounds and the lower two barrels in the upper cannon are actually missiles which fire out.
The cockpit canopy opens up and there are two forward seats for Han and Chewie and two aft seats. While it's nice to have the larger cockpit, figures can't really sit in the aft seats, they sort of perch on the edge very carefully. There are lights inside as well.
On the starboard side there is a button which allows the boarding ramp to deploy by itself, with accompanying sound and a light on either side underneath if the electronics are on.
On the port side the hatch opens right up and you can deploy the escape fighter, with sounds for the hatch and the ship when it is removed. The fighter itself has an opening cockpit, sliding cannons on both sides and a missile in the bottom which fires at the press of a button.
The interior of the ship is just as impressive as the exterior. You gain access by removing the port forward upper hull and the starboard side upper hull as two separate plates.
In the forward port side you have the Jedi training remote (which moves from side to side), Dejarik table (which lights up and has three figures to put on it), hyperdrive navicomputer, seating and an opening floor plate to access the hyperdrive circuitry.
In the forward starboard side you have a passageway aft and to the cockpit, a storage area in the side and a removable floor plate where you can hide figures.
In the aft starboard section you have the exit ramp, medical bay and two doors which open up to reveal a storage cupboard. The medical bay also has a slot to attach the bacta tourniquet which came with 2002's Saga Collection #29: Luke Skywalker: Bespin Duel. Talk about great design!
The ship is packed with electronic sound effects and there are six buttons on the upper hull to activate them. The ones for the ramp, quad cannons and missile are automatic.
The button on the back of the cockpit, when pressed quickly, makes the interior lights come on and the engine flashes along with a malfunctioning hyperdrive sound. If you press the button for longer it cycles through: Han saying "She may not look like much but she's got it where it counts kid.", Han shouting "Chewie get us out of here!" followed by a Wookie roar, Luke saying "What's that flashing?" with the sound of the perimeter sensor, Han saying "We're losing the deflector shield.", Han saying "Go strap yourselves in, I'm going to make the jump to lightspeed.", Han saying "You're all clear kid!", Han saying "Let's blow this thing and go home.", Han saying "Great shot kid, that was one in a million!" and Han saying "Come on! Come on! Switch over, let's hope we don't have a burn out."
There are three buttons on the starboard aft hull. The first, when pressed quickly has the quad cannon blaster sounds. When pressed longer it cycles through: Han saying "Hold them off, angle the deflector shield while I charge up the main guns.", Han saying "Okay, stay sharp.", Han saying "Don't worry, she'll hold together.", Luke saying "Got him, I got him!", Han saying "Great kid - don't get cocky!" and Luke saying "That's it, we did it!"
The middle button when pressed makes the engine start-up noise and take off with the aft lights coming on and the cockpit lights as well.
The last button when pressed makes the same engine noise but makes the flight sound for fractionally longer.
The other two buttons are on the port forward hull. The forward one, when pressed cycles though the following while making the Dejarik table light up: a Wookie roar, R2 talking, R2 talking, Chewie roaring, Han saying "It's not wise to upset a Wookie.", C-3PO saying "I suggest a new strategy Artoo.", C-3PO saying "Let the Wookie win." and Chewie growling. If you hold your finger down it plays the whole conversation.
The aft button, when pressed quickly cycles through the following: Luke saying "With the blast shield down I can't even see, how am I supposed to fight" a lightsabre noise and blasts followed by Ben saying "You see, you can do it." and Ben saying "You've taken your first step into a larger world." If you press it for a few seconds you get C-3PO saying "Artoo come back at once, you don't know how to fix the hyperdrive!" R2 bleeps, the engines start up, R2 screams, C-3PO shouts "You did it!" and the engines run. The lights in the cockpit and engines light up as well.
There are 29 decals to apply and she's ready to go. It's hard to express just how cool this toy is but if you're a Star Wars collector then this is an absolute must! It may have a hefty £150 price tag but at the end of the day it is 100% worth it! I can't stop playing with mine - and I'm 34 years old :)

Star Wars The Legacy Collection #8 - Darth Vader (Droid Piece May Vary)

4.0 out of 5 stars "Nothing can stop that now.", 4 Aug. 2008
Hasbro start their new Legacy Collection for 2008 with wave one consisting of figures from Return Of The Jedi.
As an added bonus, much like 2006's hologram figures in The Saga Collection or 2007's collector coins in the 30th Anniversary Collection, this year they've done something better - the Build-A-Droid `Droid Factory'. Each figure comes with a component of a small Astromech droid and when you get 4 figures in numerical sequence (in 4's starting with 1!) you get the whole droid.
The next figure in the series is #08: Darth Vader.
He has head (rotational), shoulder (rotational and abductional), elbow (vertical and rotational), forearm (rotational), torso (rotational), hips (vertical), knee (rotational and vertical) and ankle (rotational and vertical) articulation which gives her a very poseable 22 ranges of movement.
He comes equipped with his trademark red lightsabre and a helmet the separates into two pieces, the dome and the front face plate. While this is a nice idea it also means that the helmet does not go on his head nice and tightly and has a tendency to lift up and the dome falls off.
The droid for figures #5 - #8 is R7-Z0 and Malar comes with the head and middle leg of the droid.
Not a bad Vader figure, especially with all the detailing on the head but definitely better to leave the helmet off.

The next figure in the series is #07: Bane Malar, one of the Bounty Hunters that frequents Jabba's Palace.
He has head (rotational and vertical), shoulder (rotational and abductional), elbow (vertical and rotational), forearm (rotational), torso (rotational), hips (vertical), knee (rotational and vertical) and ankle (rotational and vertical) articulation which gives her a very poseable 23 ranges of movement.
He comes equipped with a brown stocked strapped blaster rifle and a small gunmetal Skiff Guard blaster pistol which fits into the holster on his left hip. Unlike a lot of previous figures, you cannot remove Malar's helmet, it is a solid piece - which is a shame.
The droid for figures #5 - #8 is R7-Z0 and Malar comes with the main body of the droid.
A nice figure for all those Jabba's Palace dioramas and a great figure for kids and collectors alike.

The next figure in the series is #06: Yarna D'Al'Gargan, the dancer who has, how shall we say, an abundance of cleavage.
She has head (rotational), shoulder (rotational and abductional), elbow (vertical and rotational), wrist (rotational), torso (rotational), hips (vertical), knee (rotational and vertical) and ankle (rotational and vertical) articulation which gives her a very poseable 22 ranges of movement.
She comes equipped with a glass and a small silver dagger.
The droid for figures #5 - #8 is R7-Z0 and Yarna comes with the right leg and the right leg thruster of the droid.
A nice figure for all those Jabba's Palace dioramas but one for collector's and completists only as the playability this figure will not really appeal to kids.

The next figure in the series is #05: Ak-Rev, the other drummer in Jabba's palace band. This figure is designed to accompany 2007's #27 Umpass Stay.
Like Umpass Stay, the poseability on this figure is quite limited and he has head (rotational and vertical), shoulder (rotational and abductional), elbow (vertical and rotational), wrist (rotational), torso (rotational), hips (vertical), and ankle (rotational and vertical) articulation which gives him a solid 19 ranges of movement. However, due to the set position of his legs he cannot sit or stand in any other position than the one he comes displayed in the packet.
He comes equipped with the other half of the giant drum which clips together with the one with Umpass Stay.
The droid for figures #5 - #8 is R7-Z0 and Ak-Rev comes with the left leg and the left leg thruster of the droid.
A nice figure for all those Jabba's Palace dioramas.

The next figure in the series is a twin pack #04: Leektar and Nippet - an Ewok warrior and child. I'm sure female collectors will love this one but male collectors will probably use them for target practice :)
The Wokling Nippet is a single figure with no articulation at all and comes with a basket to sit in.
Leektar however has head (rotational and vertical), shoulder (rotational and abductional), wrist (rotational), torso (rotational), hips (vertical), and ankle (rotational and vertical) articulation which, despite the size, still give a good 15 ranges of movement.
Leektar comes equipped with a brown, animal skull topped hard plastic hat, a knife (which fits into the pouch on the belt), flint topped hammer weapon and a belt.
The droid for figures #1 - #4 is R4-D6 and the Ewoks come with the main body of the droid.
Great for dioramas but without the Ewok Village Playset, these figures really are for completists only.

Each figure comes with a component of a small Astromech droid and when you get 4 figures in numerical sequence (in 4's starting with 1!) you get the whole droid.
The next figure in the series is #03: Chewbacca. This Chewie is actually based on one of remaining deleted scenes from Return Of The Jedi. After the escape from Jabba in the dune sea, the group return to their ships and run into trouble when they encounter a sandstorm. Those of you who have the Star Wars: Behind The Magic disc will be familiar with the scene.
Based more on the frame of the 2004 VOTC Chewbacca and sporting a bandage on his left leg, Chewie has head (rotational and vertical), shoulder (rotational and abductional), elbow (vertical and rotational), wrist (rotational), upper torso (rotational and vertical), lower torso (rotational and vertical), hips (vertical), knee (rotational and vertical) and ankle (rotational and vertical) articulation which gives him an amazing 26 ranges of movement.
He comes equipped with his trusty bowcaster.
The droid for figures #1 - #4 is R4-D6 and Chewie comes with the middle leg and head of the droid.
A somewhat obscure and windswept Chewbacca but definitely one of the most poseable to date.

He comes equipped with a tan hard hood scarf, a pair of goggles, his green lightsabre and a lightsabre handle which connects to the right side of his belt.
The droid for figures #1 - #4 is R4-D6 and Luke comes with the right leg of the droid.
A somewhat obscure figure and several versions of Luke in this costume have already been released so this is really for collectors and completists.
