FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 10

Another great  Ultimate Collectors Series (UCS) set. The AT-ST ( All Terain Scout Transport).  Just over a thousnad pieces with one thousand sixty-eight pieces (1068). Looks just like the AT-ST's from the Star Wars movies Return of the Jedi on the planet of Endor. The set has many impressive details and a opening hatch to the inside of the cockpit. The set stands over sixteen point five inches tall (16.5'') which is about forty-two centimeters (42 cm). When I first saw this set, it amazed me, it looked  like it cam striaght from the movies and I got it at a cheap price. Personally I think that this set is already an iconic set and if I had the oppertunity, I would definetely buy more of these sets. Here is what Lego.com said on it's website:

Construct the ultimate Scout Walker!
The Imperial AT-ST (All Terrain Scout Transport), also known as the Scout Walker, carries the Empire’s forces swiftly and efficiently across the ice plains of Hoth and through the dense forests of Endor. Now you can build the ultimate collector’s model of this famous Star Wars™ vehicle from over a thousand LEGO pieces!

  • Fully armed and armor-plated, the incredibly detailed and realistic AT-ST stands over 16.5" (42cm) tall!
  • Features rotating weapons, an opening pilot hatch, moving window panels, and more!
  • Enemies of the Empire beware!

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 7

The AT-ST is part of the Ultimate Collectors Series, so they usually do not have any minifigures, which is the case in this set. But there is an abundance of pieces in this set. There is one thousand sixty-eight pieces (1068). I consider that a lot of pieces for one set. Most of the pieces in this set are some color of gray, either light or dark gray with a few pieces in other colors. There do not seem to be any rare pieces in this particular set. The only piece that is rare is the mechanism that makes the cockpit (head) turn. There are no minifigures in this set, but the large amount of pieces makes up for that.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 9

The AT-ST is not meant to be played with, but it is meant to be put on display onashelf or something else, but you can play with the set a little. You can move the legs to make it look like it is walking and you can turn the "head" from side to side, but overall this set is meant to be a display piece and not to be played with. If you were to play with this set, you can move the different guns and weapons around on the AT-ST.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 10

I think that the UCS AT-ST is bargin. The set has one thousand sixty-eight pieces in the whole set, with a retail price on the set at $79.99 USD, the Price Per Piece (PPP) is seven cents ($0.07 USD) per piece. The current CAGR for the AT-ST is at fifteen point two percent (15.20%). Let's take a look at the other UCS sets.

Overall, for all the currencies, I think that the Imperial AT-ST has a great growth potential.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 10

The AT-ST is meant to be displayed. It is a great topic of conversation, because it looks like ic came striaght from the movies in Episode VI Return of the Jedi. The set has a lot of little unique details all over the set. Overall the set is an impressive set when it is displayed.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 9

I would give the AT-ST a nine. It has many great things, but there are some bad things. Here are the pros and cons:

Pros:

  • Great building experience
  • Great Price Per Piece ratio
  • Comes from Star Wars
  • Great growth potential
  • Great display attributes

Cons:

  • No minifigures or rare pieces
  • Not meant ot be played with

Overall this set is a great set, with a great investmeant potentail and great display attributes!
