Kmart Exclusive Scout Walker

11 Mar


Star_Wars_Vintage_Collection_AT-ST_Scout_WalkerScaled to accommodate two 3¾” Exclusive Endor AT-ST Crewmen (not included), the Scout Walker AT-ST Exclusive features opening roof hatch, weapons, figure, missiles and instructions. The AT-ST is primarily utilized during the forest scenes on the moon of Endor. Once the Ewoks launch their odd, unpredictable guerilla attack, a handful of the AT-Sts are neutralized. One AT-ST is kneecapped by a tumbling avalanche of logs, and the chassis of another is crushed easily between pendulum logs.

Big Hero! Action Figures will have a limited amount available for sale at the Ottawa Comic Con, May 10-12 2013 @ The Ernst & Young Centre.
