Endor Diorama at Griffin’s Galactic Heroes

More diorama creativity can be seen today, this time at Griffin’s Galactic Heroes, where he has created an Endor display.  Naturally, the AT-AT fits right in!

Galactic Heroes AT-AT, Canadian Style

Yesterday was a very good day for this Galactic Heroes collector — the AT-AT showed up at my local Walmart and I’m a tad excited about adding this kickass toy to my collection.  Here’s a  look at the packaging as designed for the Canadian market.  Enjoy!

And a day later, they’re on the shelves!

After just reporting the Purchase of the Droids and Kamino Showdown sets being displayed at SDCC, they’ve been found at retail!  And the AT-AT as well!

Check out the great boxed images from briggsith at POTF2.com.  He’s also got carded shots of the new 2-packs, so be sure to check them out!

Preview Night at Comic Con

2010′s edition of the San Diego Comic Con has begun!  Wednesday is the traditional Preview Night, and a number of sites have some great pics of Hasbro’s displays.  Check out TNI to see all the newest 2-packs and the AT-AT on display.  One very encouraging thing is the presence of the Purchase of the Droids and the Kamino Showdown Cinema Scenes – they really are coming!  And I was starting to give up on them, shame on me.  ; )

GH AT-AT Hits New Zealand

A forum member on Rebelscum has posted that the Galactic Heroes AT-AT has been spotted on the shelves in New Zealand!  It’s certainly way ahead of schedule since it’s not expected until August, but who knows, perhaps we’ll receive more reports of the AT-AT being found ahead of the planned street date.

Hasbro’s QnA Summary

The Galactic Heroes received some nice attention during this session’s Hasbro Q&A.  Check out the following site’s questions and Hasbro’s responses.

One of the best pieces of news is that although the Cinema Scenes subline is going on hiatus, they still plan on  producing more vehicles!

Thanks to ARBCOToys for the handy summary at TheRumorBuster.

From JediNews:
1.  We’re sorry to see the Galactic Heroes Cinema Scenes go. What does this mean for Galactic Heroes in terms of future vehicles and additional figures – will we continue to see vehicles or will the 2 packs be the only outlet for Galactic Heroes moving forward (and will we see all four Republic Commandos as Galactic Heroes) and finally, are we likely to see a return to the Cinema Scenes sometime in the future?

Something had to give way to make room for the Galactic Heroes AT-AT, so it was decided to put the Cinema Scenes on hiatus as a mainline offering.  There still may be exclusive Cinema Scenes here and there to take advantage of the cool vehicle library we have built up.  As for the other Commandos, we hope that they will find their way into the lineup at some point, but it won’t be for a while if so.

From Raving Toy Maniac:
Does the Galactic Heroes AT-AT’s head open to allow access to figures? If so, how many figures?

Answer: Yes, the head will open to fit one figure.

From Yodasnews:
YN: With the Galactic Heroes Cinema Scenes being put “on hold” will we still see the Purchase of the Droids and Kamino set?

Hasbro: Yes, they got pushed out due to Toys ‘R Us asking for a re-release of some of their previous Cinema Scenes. We are back on track, and these will be coming later this Spring to Toys ‘R Us.

A Peek Inside the AT-AT

There are some great pics of the AT-AT across the net as it was on display at Toy Fair, but until today I hadn’t found one showing some of the action features on the beast.  Thanks to this image from ComicFigs.net, we get a look at a couple of its movable parts.  It’s likely no surprise, but the head flips open for put your AT-AT Driver to sit and guide the walker towards the Rebel bunker.  As well, you can see the body has a door that opens and gives you room for your troopers to ride into battle.  It appears the Speeder Bike should easily fit inside as well.  It would be great to see the back of that packaging for more features!
