Review: 20018 Mini AT-AT
Posted 06 November 2010 - 01:25 AM
This little beauty dropped on my door mat today from the states so I though why not do a review!
Set Number: 20018
Name: Mini AT-AT
Year of Release: 2010
The Bag is one of those huge oversize bags but then TLC has never been enviromentally friendly with packaging!
This set comes with a good selection of parts with plenty of hinge pieces.
The build as with all the mini sets is quick and pretty fun.
The shape of the main hull is quite good for a mini.
Now the head is a very nice design! It looks almost better than the new minifig one!
The legs while simple work well and look good.
The finished set is very good and has alot of the scale right in my opinion.
I know the detail they are going for is right but some how the hole in the back here is all wrong!
The great legs make for a very poseable AT-AT.
A final shot of the whole set.
My thoughts are that this is another very well put together mini. The look of the AT-AT has been very well captured and scale looks pretty darn good to me.
If you get a chance to get it I would recommend this set!

Overall, cool mini! I really like the head and the legs, but the body could be a bit more "thought-out" if you ask me.
At any rate, you can see that TLC made great improvements of the last AT-AT mini!

Regardless, great review, mutley! The legs are very poseable, but I find that they're way flimsier than the old model. I also really like the head design, since it's made with lots of beautiful SNOT.
You've done this set justice. Thanks for the review.

and thanks for the review which is very detailed and helpful.
Personally, I think this version is better than the earlier version (set 4489). The proportions are more accurate and the head is much closer too the original. However there's still a large gap between head and body, and the legs - as efficient as they may be - look a bit too labile with the thin knee joints. But all in all it's quite an adequate version

I like it, but then again I generally like the minis that TLG has provided us so far.
I'll make sure to add this to the index.
