By Mike — Saturday, September 1, 2012

The K-Mart exclusive Vintage Collection Scout Walker (AT-ST) is now available online for $34.99 each. Online is the best way to get this vehicle for many collectors since K-Mart lacks presence in few areas.

CVI: Hasbro Panel, Booth Photos, And Resized Class II

By Mike — Friday, August 24, 2012

We've posted photos from today's Hasbro panel and booth. There are a few things to be excited about, including a TRU Vintage Slave I in 2013 and images of new Droid Factory and Clone Wars figures. Not much in terms of exclusives, but a new assortment of down-sized Class II vehicles to make them more affordable for the mommy market will surely cause debate.

Review: Vintage Collection Scout Walker (AT-ST)

By Mike — Sunday, August 12, 2012

Hasbro repaints 2009's awesome AT-ST mold, repacks it in a Vintage Collection box, and offers it up as a K-Mart exclusive. For $34.99, it's rightly priced without a figure compared to the $44 that included one with the Legacy Collection Wal-Mart exclusive. Are the superb Vintage packaging and enhanced deco enough to make you collect another Chicken Walker?
