First Order Heavy Assault AT-M6 Walker (Galaxy's Edge)
Review by JoshB
One of the good things to come out of the oft-maligned The Last Jedi is the AT-M6 Walker. This new walker design showed up at the Battle of Crait, and is just such a cool design. We never got a toy of it in scale with any of the main Hasbro lines, so you have very few options if you want a nice toy of one. Revell put out a kit that you can buy in stores, but they also made a version for the Galaxy's Edge theme park, which is what we are looking at. I think the only difference is the weathering, but in this case it makes all the difference
The box is unique to the Galaxy's Edge version.
The parts come in little baggies, and no glue is needed. Everything just snaps together.
Don't expect high-end Bandai detail here, this is a simple product for kids. It looks pretty great when assembled though.
The walker is articulated at the legs, feet and head. Youc an see the weathering does not extend to the panels inside the legs. The cannon on top has light and sound features, and requires 3 LR44 button batteries (included). Mine were dead on arrival, so you may need to get some more.
I bet if you have some basic modeling skills you can really bring this to life.
Kind of ugly seam line running down the back.
Still, an impressive looking walker at 7.5 inches tall and 8 inches long.
