Our Rebel Spies hjave gotten some advance word on some juicy rumors on some upcoming Star Wars toys.

The Legacy Collection

AT-ST
A long-rumored upgrade to this iconic vehicle is reportedly in the works, with some new accurate details, missile-firing cannons, and a driver! Standing over 13" tall, this ship is said to have multi-articulated "wobbling" legs, room for 2 drivers, and opening ports and hatches. This would mark the first time EVER that the AT-ST and the AT-ST Driver were available at the same time!

Look for this vehicle to retail around $50 and stomp into toy stores in October.


The Clone Wars

Under the Helmet 2-Packs
A new wave of figures based on the episode entitled "Rookies" (my personal favorite episode in the series to date), these figures sets would include Clone Commander Cody and Echo in one set, with Captain Rex and Fives in another set. Since Echo is already scheduled to be part of the basic figure line, it's possible that this would be a "shiny" version of the character.

Look for these to retail around $15 and hit the pegs in September.

As with any rumor list, take this all with a grain of salt, because it's not official, and may just be idle speculation. But that's part of the fun of being a fan, isn't it?

Poll
How would you feel about Gentle Giant Ltd. producing a Dark Trooper Mini Bust from the 1995 Star Wars: Dark Forces video game? It could be a single Dark Trooper or perhaps a 3-pack showcasing the various Phases of production.
Shut up and take my money!
I'm a completist, so I'm in regardless.
I could be convinced to purchase this if it wasn't too difficult to obtain.
Never played the game and don't know anything about the character, so not a likely purchase for me.
No interest.
