Having been on the 2020 rumoured list since before New York Toy Fair, this set is believed to be part of the Summer wave. Details for this set are very scant – this newly designed Imperial Walker appears to be more in proportion with the original ones seen in The Empire Strikes Back has a troop compartment that has enough room for five minifigure and an e-web blaster, plus a rack for a speeder bike.
An internal winch mechanism replicates Luke’s grappling gun action and the cockpit, which comfortably accommodates three minifigures, has two under-mounted spring-firing missiles that will help to bring down pesky Rebel snowspeeders.
The six minifigures include General Veers, two AT-AT Drivers, two Snowtroopers and Luke Skywalker who comes complete with a lightsaber, thermal denotator and grappling gun.
This new set, which is made of a confirmed 1267 pieces, has a stated price of JP¥ 21,139. This approximates to around $200 but don’t expect this to be a rock-solid price tag. Initial information suggests that the US retail price could be closer to $150.
