Rumor Report: A New/Old Imperial Walker in The Mandalorian?

While hunting for new product info today I found a new name for a Hot Wheels Imperial walker for The Mandalorian series on Disney+. The product was designated “Huckleberry Walker“, and we know that products with the “Huckleberry” code name refer to that show specifically. With some further digging, the name has now changed to “AT-ST Raider” which is also interesting as it revives a name previously used in the Expanded Universe/Legends era. It so happens that in EU, the vehicle was also used in a battle on Mandalore. The AT-AR concept was also repurposed for the Star Wars Rebels series and became that AT-DP.

Jon Favreau is a huge EU/Legends fan so it’s not surprising that he’s pulled from that material to populate his vision universe. Rest assured, there will be plenty more Easter eggs like that throughout the series.

Hot Wheels will also have The Mandalorian’s Razor Crest, as part of its Starships line of die cast vehicles.

More Star Wars @ Dollar Tree

You may recall that back in March, Rogue One figures were showing up at Dollar Tree stores for just $1.00 each.

More Star Wars product has been showing up at various Dollar Tree stores recently for just a buck, such as Hot Wheels Battle Rollers and Black Series Titanium Vehicles.

As always, your mileage and experiences may vary.  Good luck and let us know of your finds (or lack thereof)!
