Okay, here's my review of the AT TE Walker, bear with me, because this is my first review. (Really the first chance i've had to be the first reviewer). You've probably already seen my thread in LEGO Star Wars, but if not, this set was at my Target this morning, and as it was not supposed to be released yet, I had to grab it. Very Happy

THE BUILD
(sorry, no pics.)

The build is relatively straight-forward, with the whole walker being centered around a frame very similiar to that of the MTT. The legs and side panels were rather monotonous, but not any moreso than any of the other walkers. There really isn't much more to comment on for the build, pretty much just more of the same for walkers. I would give a comparison to the original AT TE, but unfortunately I never had it. The STAP is pretty basic, with only a slight update on the battle-pack design.

THE PICTURES


Here's an overall shot with everything included except the Huttlet.


Here's all the minifigs, except for the battle droid....and the Huttlet.


The
clone upgrades, they come in a small bag, so it seems they will be standard in all CW sets.




Ratings (on a scale of 1 to 10):

Parts: 8/10-With 799 pieces, I was slightly dissapointed, and thought LEGO could have kept the $89.99 price tag with a few more pieces.

Minifigs: 7/10-While the minifigs it comes with are nice (especially the clones) I would have liked 1 more standard clone and 1 more droid, so there are actually enough minifs to have a decent battle scene.

Detail: 7/10-The exterior of this thing is pretty detailed, considering the big grey walker it's supposed to represent. I would have liked a few more greebles, but i'm ultimately satisfied. The interior, however, seems very lacking, only having seats, which makes it seem like they forgot to make it until the last minute

Playability: 6/10-While it has a few play features(two blasters concealed in the front), and slightly moveable legs, this set looks best displayed, sure the moveable turrets are nice, but the leg's "movement" really only allows it to stand in its normal pose, or a straight pose.

Price to parts: 7/10-I think this could be ten dollars cheaper, and when I first opened the box, it seemed like it could be thirty dollars cheaper. The parts aren't bad, but they don't let you build much more than this walker.

Availability: 2/10- Very Happy For the time being, although i'm sure on the 26th it will rank 10/10.

OVERALL RATING: 8.5/10-A pretty neat set, great for clone armies, and for anyone who never had the first one, I would definately recommend it. Very Happy

I hope you enjoyed my review! (interior shots are on the bottom of the page, they were added later.)

Urgh - I don't like the emptiness of the interior.

Good review/set otherwise.

Oh - did you know that your avatar must be bubbly?

No I didn't, i'll have to change it. Thanks for telling me. And yeah, I agree about the interior, and then the classic walker gaps. It's not a bad set, but it could use some modding.

Which is why LEGO is better than Hasbro. Wink

Are the Clone Helmets 3D, or flat curves?

Flat Curves, with the details printed on, with is nice for making custom helmet decals, although it isn't quite as nice as 3d helmets. Oh well.

Could you please post the pictures on here? Unfortunately my computer has a blocking system on it which doesn't let me go on sites like flickr, photobucket, youtube etc.

The whole thing opened up.


The back interior, it comes out so you can set the minifigs in more easily, and features a rack for 4 guns, and a small power generator type thing.


The Front interior. This has 2 chairs, a removable container with another one of those power generators. I'm thinking they might be lights as well, though. Since it seems strange to have a removable power generator.

Tks for the review Tyr Ordus Wink Yeay its really a neat lookink set and I don't really care about the lack of interior. Afterall its Lego and everything can be modded accordingly to one's vision.

Where are you from and where did you get that set ?

Tks for sharing.

Thanks for the informative review, I like this set although it is to expensive for me to buy, unless I get it as a Christmas or Birthday present. The interior of this set is disappointing, but The exterior looks great, very detailed.

Hm...a very cool set...it's gunna be a hard decision between this and the RGS. Nice review and by the way, what are the Kamas made of? And do you have to remove them to allow the wearers to sit down? And what is the accessory right below the Rangefinder?

All the accessories are made of a stiff plastic, unlike anything else i've seen before. And they do, unfortunately need to be removed for the minifig to sit down, let alone walk. I would assume the thing below the rangefinder is a searchlight of some sort.

Tks for the reply Tyr Ordus Wink

Btw, how do the extras on the helmet hold ? Are they fix enough or do they have a tendency to fall easilly ?

Why not Hutt pictures?

I'm not sure I like all the new accessories for the figures. They're starting to be more action figure-y than Lego minifigs.

I think it is good, mainly because it opens up more options for customisation.

I'm not crazy about the Kamas, but I really like the way they did the pauldrons. They are a great improvement over the Turbo Tank Commander's pauldron or the Sandtrooper pauldrons (IMO).

Haven' talked in awhile but I just got this so here

Ratings (on a scale of 1 to 10):

Parts: 7/10 good usage but very easy and hollow feel

Minifigs: 5/10 2 clones and a lady which I should know tha name of...the little monster thing is stupid

Detail: 7/10 Great usage of parts, but details were mainly replaced with playabilty

Playability: 9/10 not much to mention

Price to parts: 8/10 because 10 pieces per dollar is pretty good compared to most. Except my MTT

Availability: 10/10 for me since all my stores had them

Overall I give it a 7/10 because it's a great set but ti does tend to fall apart. Great for my projecty I'm thinking about

NICE! This review makes me want to get this set even more. I love how this is a big improvement over the old AT-TE whereas the difference between the old and new RGS isn't so dramatic. Now I better not miss out on my chance to get one since I never got the old one (actually I was planning to get the old AT-TE for Christmas some odd years ago but saw the ad for Toysrus with the RGS for $50!!! Therefore I went for the RGS. This year, I'm probably gonna skip the RGS and get the AT-TE.)

Really? I think the RGS is a big improevement. The old on was too blacky and the new one is so much newer and cleaner looking. I would get it if I was you but not everyone has 120 dollars laying around so if you ever get a coupon or something to target...go for it

Im wanting the ATTE way more now thanks to these reviews. The inside is a bit of a bummer but it looks easily fixed with a few extra plates so its not that bad. Good review(s)!

Oh and by the way, I hated Rotta so soooo very much but thanks to Andi's pic that shows the cute little tail, I love him... it...
