While Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is still three months away, fans might find their excitement quashed by Hasbro’s newly-announced vehicle playsets. At least a little, anyway. Maybe.
Those on the hunt for some RC goodness may find their Star Wars hopes confirmed furthermore, in a new Rapid Fire AT-ACT playset. Fans will be able to take on the Alliance with a controllable AT-ACT vehicle, which can move its head and walk into battle by way of a smart-device. The vehicle also features an “armoured cargo and cockpit” to transport multiple figures, as well as a rapid-fire NERF cannon to blast the opposition. According to the press release, you’ll need 4 1.5vD batteries (not included) to get it up and running. You can see the set in action in the image below (thanks to Jedi Insider).
The playset will be priced at $299.99, and comes with a 3.75-inch Jyn Erso figure, as well as exclusive C2-B5 and Imperial AT-ACT Driver figures.
The Empire aren’t the only ones getting vehicles, however. A 3.75-inch Rebel U-Wing is also on the way, accompanied by pilot Cassian Andor to take on the Imperial Military. Fitted out with NERF-dart cannons, the Fighter features wings that can be adjusted to suit the ship’s battle or flight mode. You’ll be able to pick it up for $49.99.
If the U-Wing isn’t quite your style, however, a 3.75-inch TIE Striker was additionally announced by the company, also presenting a NERF-firing cannon. The vehicle will also come with 2 NERF darts to supplement your intergalactic tirades, as well as a plucky Imperial pilot figure to plunge into battle. The TIE Striker will be available for $39.99.
