Compare this AT-ST Driver figure
This AT-ST Driver was released in the Attack On Hoth battlepack during The Shadow Of The Dark Side Collection in October 2010 as a Target exclusive. The AT-ST Driver was packed-in together with 2 Snowtroopers - an AT-ST vehicle and an E-Web cannon. AT-ST Drivers were seen in The Return Of The Jedi - but not in The Empire Strikes Back. However - during the attack on Hoth - AT-ST vehicles can be seen very briefly in the background.
This version of the AT-ST Driver is the first super articulated Star Wars figure of this character. The figure has 14 joints - with ball-joints in the neck - shoulders - elbows - the waist - knees and ankles. The forearms and both legs are swivel jointed. There are no balancing issues - but the figure does have the typical peg holes in the feet so it can be placed on a stand. The helmet fits very well onto the head - and the blaster stays quite well in both of the figure's hands. The harness is removable - but in order to get it off - the upper body needs to be disconnected on the waist joint (easy to do). The goggles fit very tightly over the head - and cover the AT-ST Driver's eyes very well. Unfortunately - the figure can't wear the goggles at the same time as the helmet - because the helmet isn't wide enough. If it was wider though - it would look strange. The goggles are also too tight to fit over the helmet.
The paint job on the AT-ST Driver is simple with only black and various gray colors on the helmet and outfit - but it matches the on-screen characters outstandingly well. The super articulated sculpt is brilliant - plus it fits very well inside the AT-ST cockpit. This version of the AT-ST Driver is the best representation of this character from Hasbro as of this review. Despite the small issue with the goggles - this figure - and the Attack On Hoth battlepack can easily be recommended!
The Rebel base on Hoth is under attack! An All terrain Scout Transport (AT-ST) walker strides across the ground toward Echo Base. The vehicle's blaster cannons and concussion launcher give the walker plenty of firepower - while the height and mobility provide significant advantages during attacks. On the ground - snowtroopers slam the Rebel base with laser fire from an E-Web heavy repeating blaster.
