Today’s set is 30274 AT-DP.
It looks like the AT-ST but just ever so slightly different.
The head shape is much narrower. Where the AT-ST was wide enough to seat two drivers side-by-side and look like it, the AT-DP by contrast looks like it’s a single seater, or, if there are two drivers, they sit tandem style.
There are no “ear” cannons, but there is a gigantic oversized ball-jointed chin cannon. It’s pretty satisfying for that cannon to have some articulation.
The legs are poseable thanks to click hinge plates. There aren’t a ton of different poses you can do other than standing still or deciding which leg to put forward and which one to put back. But that’s okay cause really, that’s how legs are supposed to work.
That’s all I gotta say. I’m sorry if the reviews this week feel phoned in. I’m having a tough week.
Does It Suck or Does It Rock?
This set rocks! As mini chicken walker models go, this one is pretty great. I never got either of the larger models so I don’t have much of a frame of reference. In fact, since I never saw it in action on the Star Wars Rebels cartoon, I have exactly zero point of reference. Never mind that though, because I do like this iteration. It’s different enough from the AT-ST to really stand out on its own. And that ball-jointed chin cannon? It’s the best.
There’s no sponsor this week, and with sponsorships lasting a whole week, you can get plenty of exposure for mere pennies. Pennies I say! Want to sponsor a review? Send me a message to email@example.com or hit me up on discord of the polybag set you have that you want me to review. If selected, in exchange for the set you’ll get a mention right here in the review post and a link to your website or social media account or just about anything else.. Nearly free advertising, so what’s stopping you?
You Can Win This And Every Other Polybag I Review This Year
I’ll be raffling every polybag I review this year in one big lot, all 260 sets (with the possibility of more). Each set will be individually stored in a ziploc baggie complete with the extra pieces, instructions, and the actual polybag bag it came in. The cost of a raffle ticket is just $1 USD and you can enter as many times as you want. Send a PayPal payment to firstname.lastname@example.org for $1 USD for every ticket you want to purchase. DO NOT send one payment for multiple entries i.e. do not send one $5 USD payment for five tickets; five $1 USD payments must be made instead. Raffle is open to everyone in the world except where raffles are illegal. Be sure to put “POLYBAG RAFFLE” in the notes section of the payment in order to be entered successfully. Winner will be drawn sometime early January 2023 and contacted at the PayPal email address the payment was sent from to arrange for delivery. For a running list of all the sets that you can win, check this Google spreadsheet.
