    I think only new series stuff is switching. Last I heard Classic Who was staying at 5-inch.

    Maybe if the Empire had used that they would have had better luck. AT-ST chicken walkers could navigate trees better. Heck, they could hide behind them

    Yep. An AT-AT Walker lumbers through the forests of Endor to deliver the captured and handcuffed Luke into the clutches of Darth Vader. It's seen just once and isn't used again for the remainder of the film, but there is one AT-AT in Return of the Jedi.

    Forgive my ignorance, but what exactly is the difference between the Endor and Hoth versions?

    The toys themselves? The new Endor version has forest mud and foliage stains on its foot pads and the AT-AT Driver figure that comes with the vehicle has been slightly repainted to look a little different (since he's been assigned to a Walker unit on a non-arctic/snow covered world).

    Other than that I'm not sure.

    I saw on Big Bad Toy Store over the weekend a pre-order for a Diamond Select/Art Aslyum USS Enterprise-E First Contact version...I had no idea that they were planning on releasing the First Contact ship. It's supposed to be film accurate in terms of paint job, etc. Now I have a decision to make...wait until May to get this? Or next week finally get the Nemesis version I've been waiting two and a half years for?

    Nice.

    That's a really tiny hose and one really big spade.

    They were actually scrapbook embellishments that I never used.

    They look great. I can't wait to see the first big summertime picnic and cookout pics of Clint and Tasha. A giant steak and hot dog versus our heroes?

    I won't know which side to root for.

    No worries. They brighten up the thread even if they're limited in number. Thanks again.

    I like the Tenth Planet Cybermen.

    But you seem to be missing a Troughton.
