One of Kenner's largest Star Wars toys, the AT-AT was every Star Wars-obssessed child's dream. With movable "limbs" and "head," not to mention clear "chin guns," which lit up and pumped back and forth when a trigger inside the toy was activated, the AT-AT had a lot to offer. However, the high price tag meant that relatively few of them were sold, and nice examples have always sold for a premium on the collectors market. The two "chin guns" are frequently missing from loose versions.
First released as part of Kenner's 1981 Empire Strikes Back line, the AT-AT was re-issued the following year with 10 bonus action figure accessories. It was issued again in 1983, this time in a Return of the Jedi box, with Endor-themed graphics. Luckily for Kenner, the menacing vehicle made a brief appearance in Jedi, patrolling the forested area surrounding the Empire's shield generator. In the '90s, Hasbro again released an AT-AT toy. Although, in producing it, they re-used the molds of the vintage Kenner vehicle, several modifications were made to the toy which allow it to be distinguished from its '80s counterpart.
First Issued: 1981 (ESB packaging)
