Designed as mobile battlefield armor, the All Terrain Attack Pod is an essential walker for the clone troopers. The center leg gives the AT-AP additional stability for crossing rough terrain, as the clone troopers who operate it blast the enemy with the vehicle’s projectile launcher and cannons. AT-AP walkers were used on Felucia and Kashyyyk, where dense ground cover required the use of stable yet highly mobile vehicles.

By the time The Saga Collection and the 30 (77-07) lines arrived, Hasbro was pumping out Mid Size vehicles like there was no tomorrow. While heavily focused on Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith, Hasbro did release vehicles from across the Star Wars saga and even incorporated a few unique vehicles into the mix as well. Not all of the vehicles were perfect and not all of them were exactly in proper scale, but these wonderful and well made vehicles provided a platform and background for the 3.75” basic figure line that just wouldn’t compare to anything else meant to complement the basic figure line. One of the surprise vehicles of 2007 during the 30 (77-07) line included the AT-AP Walker. This vehicle could be found during the Battle of Kashyyyk in Episode III. They weren’t easily seen, but if you paid careful attention you can find these vehicles multiple times throughout this short battle sequence. Hasbro did an admirable job translating this vehicle into a toy. It appears to be in accurate scale to the onscreen vehicle, and it interacts with various 3.75” clone troopers quite well. Whether you have one seated at the cannon, or two in the cockpit area, the AT-AP Walker will undoubtedly become a favorite for most Star Wars collectors.

After scanning the Battle of Kashyyyk , we did notice that evidence exists that there are differently decorated AT-AP vehicles in these scenes. But it appears that Hasbro went with the most common color scheme to develop this toy which is perfectly fine with us. The scenes from Episode III certainly speed by very quickly and when you pause the scene it becomes too blurry to see anything too clearly. Still, with a couple of screen captures you can see just how appropriately this vehicle has been approached and colored. This should meet all collectors’ stringent standards. As a toy, the AT-AP Walker is a blast. The two rear legs are articulated in two spots and the third leg is articulated at one joint. While it would have been so much better for all three legs to each have multiple points of articulation, there is “enough” here to make this vehicle functional. But the third leg has a special feature where it can fold up into the body when it isn’t needed for traveling over Kashyyyk’s terrain. With careful positioning, you can get all three legs to be flush with a flat surface which is a blessing in disguise. The AT-AP Walker is loaded with features including a firing projectile, spinning turret, two opening cockpit halves, and of course the firing projectile.

This vehicle can be piloted/controlled by three separate action figures (two in the cockpit and one of the rotating turret). One thing is for sure, the action figures interact beautifully with the vehicle. We couldn’t be happier with how they fit in with this Prequel Trilogy vehicle. While vehicles like the AT-AP Walker seamlessly blend in with the look of the overall line, it really pokes holes in Hasbro’s argument that they only want to produce vehicle that have an important role in the film. With the AT-AP Walker, they are literally choosing some of the “biggest” background vehicles possible. Yes, they provide great play value, but these aren’t basic or iconic vehicles. However, that’s suits us just fine. Perhaps the AT-AP Walker wins for us because it is an aggressive battle vehicle. Likewise, Hasbro should be focusing on aggressive vehicles that actually appear in the Star Wars saga. The AT=AP Walker is a picture perfect example of the vehicles they should be choosing to make in the toy line. it’s just that we find their arguments inconsistent sometimes when it comes to Mid Size vehicles. The 30 (77-07) lineup is truly separating the 30th anniversary of Star Wars. The line isn’t choosing the most obvious, and for that we have a great deal of respect for it.
