A charity auction launched today by the Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) provides the opportunity for STAR WARS fans to own the hottest new collector’s item – Hasbro’s STAR WARS AT-AT – before it hits toy store shelves in the coming weeks. Proceeds of the auction will benefit TIF programs that provide much-needed support to charities supporting children at-risk, abused, abandoned, ill or otherwise in need.
The auction on Givingworks.ebay.com began at noon (EST) today and features two of Hasbro’s all-new STAR WARS AT-AT vehicles. The auction will close at noon (EST) on Monday, July 19.
Entertainment Earth has just sent out emails informing customers who preordered their upcoming Comic Pack Exclusives by the case that the price for these items has dropped.
Not too bad for what looks like some of the best Comic Packs out of the entire line. You’ll also notice the price drop on their website, which is good through Friday. After that, the price will return to normal.
The waiting is over. After all the teasers and sneak peeks, it’s time for the full review of Hasbro’s Imperial AT-AT. But this massive vehicle can’t be contained by a single website…so in an unprecedented move, Yakface, Rebelscum, and Jedi Temple Archives have joined forces once again to provide an in-depth detailed roundtable review! Get all the info after the link.
The wait is finally over! And to mark this special release, we have joined forces with Rebelscum, and Jedi Temple Archives to bring you a comprehensive look at the massive Imperial AT-AT vehicle!

After checking out our toyguide update, head right over to Rebelscum and Jedi Temple Archives for their photo archives as well.
