I recently saw this toy in a superstore near where I work.

Assault Walker

Link to Amazon product.

When do we see an Assault walker ? Is it in the assault on

Maz's castle?

The packaging left me with the impression that this was related to the force awakens

  • There's other vehicles in the same range that are also absent from the filn; argos.co.uk/v1/static/Product/partNumber/4154567.htm – Valorum Apr 17 '16 at 13:01

    I'm not sure during the Empire era, but they use them a fair bit in the Clone wars Tv series. Can't remember the episode though. – Hatandboots Apr 17 '16 at 13:44

    @AncientSwordRage - What's more annoying is that Hasbro doubled up on Finn dolls (even going so far as to give him vehicles that he never came into contact with) while at the same time producing hardly any Rey dolls because "girls don't buy action figures" – Valorum Apr 17 '16 at 15:39

I don't know that the walker appears anywhere in the movie itself. The assault on Maz's castle had troop transports and TIE fighters, but no walkers (they would have been a poor choice given the hilly terrain and nearby lake). It could have been planned (these were released well before the movie itself) but dropped in the final cut. The scene where I would have expected to see them would have been the First Order firing of Starkiller Base (where we see a new type of AT-AT on the far right)

It could be that these walkers are parked next to these and you can't see them due to the TIE fighters parked in front. It would make sense that they still exist, given their predecessor's use in the Clone Wars
