Thanks for the tip, OdinsDad. This sounds similar to using the 3/16" tubing fix that I read a bit about in this thread, but using a pencil would save me a trip to the store, haha. That being said, my AT-TE is still holding up nicely a week later with no legs falling off or anything. I did find that I may have gotten the left and right sides of the AT-TE reversed, but all the galleries of the walker I've seen have the legs put on the same way I have and I've also read that the legs stick a bit better this way (which may be why I haven't had any problems). So I think I'll leave 'em as is.Before I got the replacement legs I did this:
"The quick detach legs can easily be fixed with just 1 standard pencil. Take a pencil and cut 12 pieces of it the same length as the eraser. I used a hack saw to cut the pencil. Put one of the cut pieces into each shoulder and elbo joint on the legs. You put the pencil piece right in the middle of the 4-prong claw connector. Snap the leg parts back together."
Congrats on the good deal. It shouldn't be hard to find the missiles. Looks like a few sellers on eBay are parting out AT-TE's like they do with the Legacy Falcon.I'm late to the party but I finally managed to get one. I really regret not getting this when it came out but the Ebay prices were too high. I managed to actually just win one on Ebay for $55. It's missing all the missiles though, but at $55 and it was in Canada as well so I save on import fees. Hoping to one day manage to find all the missiles. The stickers are all on the wrong place unfortunately, but found a set of replacement ones from someone in Europe. Can't wait till it arrives.
So it arrived today. It can't really hold it's weight. Gonna have to do the joint mods on it.
I was thinking of that, but just think it might be too late by now. I mean this came out in 2008 I think. Guess it doesn't hurt to try.
