For a couple months there
has been much buzz surrounding some Target exclusive AT-ST Battle Packs. Much like
the Imperial Shuttles last year, Hasbro and Target have been mum on the subject but
Bothan spies throughout the entire toy network have kept us apprised of their progress.
Now, they have been spotted from coast to coast. Marjorie got some at Target, but
at $50 it's a fairly hefty price tag. Is it worth your money? Listen to our review
of these items to find out!

fleet and is equipped with twin ion engines, microparticle accelerators, and hexagonal
solar panels that provide impressive speed and maneuverability. However, they have
no shielding or secondary systems to accommodate the large power generators, leaving
their pilots with little in the way of auxiliary support during combat. TIE Fighters
are organized into wings and sent out in large swarms to overwhelm with numbers as
well as firepower provided by two forward-mounted laser cannons...
