Like the original late 70's Joe Johnston concept sketch? My guess on that pose is no, unless the "toe" on the "moving" leg is touching the ground. I haven't seen the toy in person but my bet is that it would topple over.
I really wish they at least articulated the ankles. Hm, maybe I can balance it on it's toe.Nope, it can't be done unfortunately. The legs are only articulated where it connects to the main body unlike the Legacy AT-ST.
Yes.Like peeing on a bush or something?
Not sure if there was a discount or not - there was only one on the shelf @ $7.49 - I was also surprised at the price. Note this is a fairly small vehicle without any leg articulation, though I wouldn't be surprised if the price goes up later. Maybe I just got lucky...Only $8.00? Was there some kind of discount going on? That's a great price.
Thanks for the info. $30 is extremely overpriced for this vehicle. I think it's worth more like $15-$20, but am not sure what Target/Wal-mart/TRU's "official" price will be - if it hits at all of these stores, that is.Spotted dozens at the Disney Store here last week and passed on the C$30 price tag. Will wait for them to hit Target..
If I'm understanding your question, yes: There are only three articulated areas re: this vehicle: The head can move from side to side, and each leg can move at the joint where it's connected to the body. The legs themselves are completey unarticulated, which IMHO makes it easier to make this stand - I.e., you just place the vehicle on a table and that's it. It's fairly light, so shouldn't fall over easily. Hopefully I'm explaining this properly...Is the articulation limited to the "hip" join on the AT-DP?
Glad you like the vehicle - it's the first new SW vehicle I've gotten since 2010 (the last one I got befor this was the excellent Cloud Car from ESB) & agree that the non-articulated legs are great; don't mind them at all, especially since I hate dealing with the AT-ST's legs & their balance issues.I've just bought one of these tonight. It's the first Hasbro Star Wars vehicle I've bought in ages, and it's looking like it might be the last as there's nothing else on the horizon I'm interested in.
Anyway, it's a very nice item for what it is. I find myself glad they skimped on the leg articulation as it means it can actually stand up.
They should have put that on the box.
Instead of "FIRING MISSILE LAUNCHER!" it should say "CAN ACTUALLY STAND UP!"
Question. Should the bit below the head be hollow? It kind of looks like there's a bit missing on mine as I can see inside to the joints. I'm guessing they shaved off a bit of cost by doing that.
Another question, can anyone point me to a comic strip image or some concept art where we get an idea of scale?
