This is ten times better then the last one, who would want that one, over this.? I remember a few people where not happy with the quality of the last one though. hope this is not the same.

Very nice!

It looks much better than the last one. The quality was lacking in the first one. It's ok but this one is incredible.

So which retailer can give us the best price? :)

jesseawilson
06-16-2005, 07:47 AM
The cheapest you'll see it is $1329 with free shipping. That's MAPP on this piece.

The other one was mostly plastic I hear which is kind of disheartening. The code 3 version won't be anywhere near this piece as far as the look with the base, but for $3-400 dollars and all dicast I will stick with Code 3 version. If for no other reason then this piece is freaking HUGE!!

It does seems like a dirty stab in the back for those who bought the first one, doesn't it?
That one won't be worth anything once the new AT gets out.

06-16-2005, 11:15 AM
Yeah it is a bit, I think the majority will sell the first one. Has it is a bit redundant now.:\

The signature name plate looks totally LAME on this new version. If you're going to re-enact a scene in a diorama, then do so. I don't remember that huge snow-covered billboard during the invasion.

The name plate would actually have fit much better with the first version as a museum display piece.

ShelobsPrey
06-17-2005, 02:17 AM
Hey! Stop dissing the 1st AT-AT - mine has feelings you know! >:

Seriously, though, the first AT-AT is pretty sweet in my eyes. Yeah, I paid alot for it so I'm bound to defend it, but I'm totally happy with it.

Can't say I wasn't p***** at MR releasing a second one so quick though. They should have told everyone upfront what they were planning. I would have waited to at least see which one I prefer.

Believe it or not (and I'm sure most will think not :p ), I'm not sure which I prefer. The snowbase with speeder is very, very nice, but the pose is somewhat static compared to the first. And the plaque makes it look a bit, well, crap...

I agree completely,:\ I'ts an eye saw. Why go to all the trouble to get the classic scene like that. if your going to
stick that on it.:\

Well I've decided that I'm going to try for the Signature AT-AT. I'm going to sell a bunch of my SS/W stuff that I don't want and cancel a bunch of preorders. It will take a few months, but hopefully it will still be around or below retail by the end of the year. I'm pretty sure that it will.

Being new to MR with only the Luke EE saber...
had to buy this AT-AT. Although I do agree
that MR should have offered both versions at
the same time. There is a MR VIP response
over at Rebelscum forum....basically they
wanted to do this version first and make
around 2,000 of 'em but Lucas was not signing
off on it for some reason.

Lynxje
06-24-2005, 04:36 AM
I really can't believe this, releasing a nearly the same item (but with a better base) half a year after a first piece which was supposedly limited to a 1,000 pieces... I would be so pissed if I had bought the first one.

From the COA:
"Every replica is strictly limited in the number produced and sold to enhance its value and protect your investment."

Yeah, whatever. Tell that to the guys who bought the first AT-AT.

Gruson
06-25-2005, 05:29 PM
FYI,

MR is saying they did not "plan" to release them like this. They "said" they were originally going to release 2000 of the snow based version but Lucasfilm did not approve it in time.

So, they sold the first edition instead of waiting for approval. Now, with approval, they are selling the new (and better IMO) version.

Is this true? Who knows...I don't buy it though.

I would be really pissed off if I had bought the first version....and I almost did.

RichardW
06-25-2005, 05:48 PM
I heard about that on the Rebelscum forums, but it still sounds like b.s. to me. They either should've waited for Lucasfilm's approval or not released a second version. That's just a slap in the face to collectors who spent quite a bit of money for a limited edition item.

hairlesswookiee
06-26-2005, 11:29 AM
^^^^seems to be the same case with some of the new LE lightsabers. i have the original Luke ROTJ limited edition saber and it is super rare. so last year they come out with the "ultimate edition" or whatever they call it. and now they are doing it again with the ESB luke lightsaber. im starting to get pissed because i have just about every lightsaber they have put out and now i dont see the point in buying one of the "limited production" props because they will just remake it again a couple years later. :thwak :thwak

Yes indeed, it will come with a snow-base and a limited run of 750.

elwood49
06-29-2005, 10:07 AM
I just ordered the AT-AT SE from Bob! :bow Thank you very much Godfather! This is my most anticipated piece ever.

I really hope that MR brings out a studio scale AT-ST at some point (Hopefully in the $700 range). I've seen pics of the MR AT-AT with the Code 3 AT-ST, and the MR version makes the Code 3 piece look really poor. I'll try and find the pics of both that I saw on Rebelscum.

Gazmog
06-29-2005, 10:46 AM
As much as I love this piece, I cannot justify spending that much money on it...especially as I will be stung heavily when it arrives in the UK.:eek

I have to keep within my budget...and that budget is being stretched to the limit as it is with the likes of the Kong lithos, more Koto, SSC and those GG maquettes. :thud

TURINS BANE
06-29-2005, 03:44 PM
Good for you EL,:toast . as I said it looks like an awesome piece, i'ts just that plaque on the base that puts me of it.:\

Gruson
06-29-2005, 03:54 PM
Nice Elwood!

I cannot wait for this piece.

I too hope they release an AT-ST.

Code3 products lack the quality I look for. Some are better than others though...

TURINS BANE
06-29-2005, 04:15 PM
So are you getting it aswell Grus.?I really like the look of it, but that plaque really distorts the scene for me.:\ couldn't they have put it on the underside.?

elwood49
06-29-2005, 05:00 PM
TB, is the plaque really THAT bad for you? I didn't even really notice it until you started talking about it.:lol

So who has this on order so far?

1. Me
2. Gruson
3. larbob

Anyone else? This to me is the holy grail of SW collectibles...at least until the Millineum Falcon is released.

However, this piece is my most wanted by far, even over the Falcon. When I was a kid, my favorite toy was the Kenner AT-AT. My family has a picture of me in the snow reenacting the Hoth scene with my action figures when I was 5. That thing is still packed up in a box somewhere in my parent's house. 20 years later, I decided that I MUST have this piece. Things have finally come full circle.

Gruson
06-29-2005, 06:40 PM
Yes,

I have ordered it.

I too have ALWAYS loved the AT-AT. We also played with ours in the snow when I was a kid. :)

The plaque is not a big deal at all for me and does not take away form the piece.

I actually like it because it will have Phil Tippet's autograph. He was legend back in the days before CGI. His miniature work and stop motion is incredible. It's a shame no one works with him now. Oh well. It will mean something to me for sure.

TESB is my favorite movie of all time and I just have to have this piece.

As Josh would say, it's very iconic. :)

larbob
06-30-2005, 03:38 AM
This will definitely be the centerpiece of my SW's
collection. I just like the snowbase with wrecked
speeder and Phil Tippet's autograph. It's a lot
of money to spend with the MR Luke EE coming out
as well and all the SS LOTR stuff.

elwood49

Exactly. Some people don't like things that are signed, but I think it adds something special to the piece. I would have preferred Lucas's auto (I wonder if MR could ever get him to sign something), but Tippett makes much more sense. Outside of Ray Harryhausen, Tippett is one of the biggest names in stop-motion animation.

Phil animated the AT-AT, ED-209 in Robocop, and the raptors in Jurassic Park. That's pretty impressive work to say the least!

TURINS BANE
06-30-2005, 06:31 AM
TB, is the plaque really THAT bad for you? I didn't even really notice it until you started talking about it.

well it will probably grow on me not a big deal really I suppose. It's just a brilliant diorama to have and probably
the ultimate Star wars piece. I just think it would have looked better without it, If I had the money though I would still like to get, but after hearing bad things about the first one,
maybe that's not such a good idea.

Gruson
06-30-2005, 06:49 AM
FYI,

This version is supposed to look more real and less like cheap "plastic." A lot of people said version 1 looks cheap in person and MR apparently made this one a lot better.

This is what they were saying over at rebelscum.

TURINS BANE
06-30-2005, 09:49 AM
Yeah it does look a lot more detailed then the last one.
Have you got the link to what there saying about it over
at rebelscum Gruson.?

Well I tried ordering the AT-AT on Weds as I've just received notification of my Collectors discount codes ( $100 of Studio scale items) - however when I came to checkout the system couldn't calculate a shipping qoute so I couldn't proceed to "hit the button". Checked against MR's list within the customer care section - sure enough it's not been added. I've emailed MR but as of this morning no response - guess I could look at it positively - I've not had to stump up the 50% deposit MR require but it's gotta happen sooner or later.

Hope MR can show a few new pieces at SDCC even if only if its work in progress.

Cheers

My advice, spend a little more money and get this. I can guarantee the Code 3 version will not look better than this.

elwood49
07-05-2005, 03:13 PM
It's impossible for ANYTHING to look better than this. This piece is an exact replica of the actual prop used for filming. How can you get more accurate than exactly what was shown on screen?

Besides, the Code 3 version will most likely have those crappy looking figures included with it. I still don't understand why they decided to start including those...:puke

jesseawilson
07-05-2005, 03:25 PM
Something tells me he is not waiting for the code 3 one to come out so that he can have an even better one. I would venture a guess that he, like alot of other people are waiting for the code 3 to come out so that they can afford to have one period.

LOL and Gruson triple the price of the other unit is not "a little more". I wish it were just "a little" then I would stop having to beat myself up for not getting one. But as I said B4 it's code 3 for me mainly because I have the four ships I want that C3 have released so far and still spent less then the price for 1 of the MR AT-AT's.

fortress-swords.co.uk are taking orders (email them, don't think it's on their site yet), but it'll cost between 1,300 - 1,500 GBP... They do have a layaway option where you can pay in installments and have excellent customer service - I got my original MR AT-AT from them (stop laughing at the back, I LOVE it! :p ) and they personally delivered it to my door.

Hell of a price though... :puke

TURINS BANE
07-06-2005, 03:07 AM

Not necessarily but it will be cheaper, I'm still struggling to pay for the Alien Queen
from sideshow. Like Jessie said, Code 3 are value for money,but this new AT-AT,
is just the holy Grail in Star wars pieces. I remember FP had the first AT AT
for 1000, wonder how much the new one will be.?

Of Course! I'm going to probably have to retire my Vader and Obi-Wan setup. Which I love because I have the MR Sabers behind each statue.
But the AT-AT was always my favorite SW vehicle so it will go there well. I need to order some new 14x11 prints to coincide with my new AT-AT. I don't know the dimentions to the AT-AT either (can't find them anywhere on-line) so I don't know how wide it is. My display table is only 50 inches long. Each saber is 15 inches long (with display case) and I know that the AT-AT is at least 30 inches long so displaying them in their current state is impossible. I'm doing my best to try and not make things look cluttered. I guess I could face Obi and Darth each facing outward on each side of the case. Any suggestions???

IT'S HERE.. It is simply beautiful. I have spent the past 30 minutes just staring at every detail.. This is my new favorite piece. I don't know why I waited so long to get it.
Here are a few pix of me unloading it in the garage. I used my car just to show the scale of this box. It's a monster. I've said this before,,, but my theater room is pretty dark and has a tough time being photographed with a normal digital camera. One of these days, I'll get my photographer buddy over here and we'll get some shots. The ones I took in my theater simply do not give this piece justice and I would be embarrassed posting them...

WOW!!!

I love this piece too but doubt I'll ever be able to afford it. It is impressive though. Be sure to post more pics when you're done. What are the dims of the base?


11" deep
27" wide
21" tall

I have plenty of SS and MR pieces and this is by far the most impressive. A dream piece, really. The detail of this is even more impressive than the Predator Maquette.

Thanks guys! I was alone when assembling it and since you have to turn it with the legs in the air and put the stand on the feet and then insert the screws on each hole it was quite hard. I tried for about 5-6 times until getting it right. And I was very carefully not to scratch anything. And the original box was HUGE. Glad I'm not going to get another big replica like (my focus are OT Imperials) this because it was a killer LOL ;)

As the plaques already say Julian Glover is General Veers (http://www.starwars.com/databank/character/generalmaximilianveers/) who was inside the AT-AT during the battle of Hoth. He also played villain Walter Donovan in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade plus he had roles in other movies.


http://i40.tinypic.com/33cll3p.jpg



Ian Liston (http://www.wesjanson.com/actor.php) is the actor playing the role of Wes Janson (pilot on snowspeeder) and AT-AT driver/gunner (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ian_Liston).


http://i44.tinypic.com/a9ppwm.jpg


You can see them both in the Empire Strikes Back cast (http://www.starwars.com/movies/episode-v/)


Or on a humor side: :D

I keep looking at the x-wing dio and i do love it, but because its quite large i decided to give it a miss, it is damn cool though. I hope koto do make more stuff cos i was impressed when they announced the x-wing dio.

Indeed, they have certain periods when you can join in. They had some problems in the past and after that are getting very carefully. Me, Philip Wise or other Rebelscum members have posted a few times info about the joining periods.

But if you want I could post a message for you there in the Junkyard (http://www.therpf.com/forumdisplay.php?f=13). Just PM me here exactly what you want me to write and I'll post it. :) After that I'll show you the link

I don't think so. There was one that sold on ebay for $2750 recently, but that was because it was factory sealed, and that can make people go all crazy. They haven't been on ebay much recently, but on "For Sale" forums they seem to go for around $1200 tops, and that hasn't changed for a while. That's more or less what they originally sold for, BTW. I'm not sure what the difference in value between the signature edition and regular LE is, but a lot of people actually seem to prefer the LE, so it may not be that big.

To be honest, I'd rather pay for a displayed item that was mint than one that was factory sealed. there were a few AT-ATs that came with broken legs so there is no way i would take that risk esp with MR being out of biz.

Many of the ones that came with broken legs were shipped without original box and packaging, and that is a big mistake for this huge and fragile monster. I was lucky to get mine from an EU distributor who had a couple more in stock so I was covered if something happened. But it didn't, mine was factory sealed and arrived in 100% perfect condition.

As for the preference of LE vs SE it is a matter of taste. The same distributor had the LE for $150 less and I preferred to get the SE, no second thoughts about it. For me the diorama base, crashed snowspeeder and signature are more interesting than the simple mirror base - recently I've seen a LE sold on ebay with cracked/damaged mirror, seems this is could happen to these type of bases. For example I wish the Stormtrooper to come with a rack base or something instead of the mirror base (something like the new HCG Alien rifle).

Also the original ILM AT-AT models used in the movie seem to come with dirt and snow paint applied more similar with the SE version than LE. But as I said this is a matter of taste and choice both are great replicas and one day I'm sure I'll get the AT-AT LE version too...

Yeah, I'm with you on this one. I fell in love with the SE version the moment i saw Felmar and your pics.

The snow + crashed snowspeeder recreates that memorable scene when Luke just manages to get out of his speeder before it got squashed.

The crashed speeder has helped me even develop some resistance against buying a MR Studio Speeder as my wallet keeps reminding me that technically I already have one :lol

02-24-2010, 09:25 AM
And the small Snowspeeder has its own description here: "Master Replicas' AT-AT Signature Edition faithfully reproduces the details of the original filming miniatures and includes a snowscape diorama, complete with Luke Skywalker's crashed snowspeeder (cast directly from an ILM miniature). Faithfully reproduces the original 19-inch high filming miniatures as seen in The Empire Strikes Back." It seems the original MR site is dead, but I saved this months ago when this was still online.

Today marks the last update of virtual goods on PlayStation Home surrounding the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back, but LucasArts is ending that campaign in style.
Now, Home users will be able to download the following furniture items:


•AT-AT Table
•Probe Droid Chandelier
•Millennium Falcon Asteroid Chair
•Slave I Sofa
•Wampa Skin Rug
•AT-ST Side Table
•Han Solo in Carbonite
In addition to the above items, LucasArts is also putting out two great bundles. The "Everything Empire Strikes Back Bundle" includes, well, everything ESB-related put out for Home so far. That's 51 total items for the price of $24.99. The "All Furniture Items Bundle" includes all 10 pieces of ESB-related furniture items for the price of $9.99. If you bought all of the items separately you'd be spending $116, so grab a bundle to get some serious savings.

I'm a little late to this thread, LOL!!:rotfl

I just bought one of these behemoths on ebay and had it shipped to me without original packaging, I know:cuckoo:

It arrived in rather good condition with the exception of the two canons, under the head, the two shield pieces on either side of the "belly" and the spoiler looking piece on the back side of the AT-AT. They were broken off in shipping and seem to be pretty clean breaks. Can anyone recommend anything for fixing these items before I just take some super glue and piece it back together? Some kind of hobbyist epoxy/resin? Other than these issues, I'm loving this piece and it is a tremendous addition to my collection!!

Yeah, I do regret never getting one. I was always waiting for a good deal and somehow never managed to pick one up.

As for repairing the damage, if the pieces aren't too heavy, super glue could probably work. Epoxy is stronger, but is harder to work with and might be more likely to be visible when you're finished.

Nice pickup! Hopefully the repairs go well. Seeing it in person definitely makes me appreciate the incredible detail. :clap

Congrats on your new AT-AT. A very impressive piece! I think superglue would do the trick, just add with moderation.
