The AT-RT was first used in the Clone Wars in the Star Wars universe. LEGO released the AT-RT (75002) in the first wave of the Star Wars 2013 sets. The AT-RT is the actually the 3rd version of the walker following the 2005 set (7250) and the 2009 polybag (30006). The set contains 222 pieces and retails for $19.99, a $0.09/piece which is outstanding especially for a licensed Star Wars set. The box has one instruction booklet and three numbered bags.
There three minifigures in the set: Yoda, a 501st Legion Clone Trooper, and a Commando Droid Captain.
Yoda has been redesigned from his previous version. The torso design has been updated a little. The head piece has also been updated with some white hair on the back. The lightsaber has been changed to a darker green.
The 501st Legion Clone Trooper is a new minifigure for 2013. He wears the Phase II armor and has blue markings on the torso as well as the legs. The helmet also has a blue V-shaped pattern in the middle. The trooper has a single-sided face with a serious expression. His accessory is the standard blaster.
The Commando Droid Captain has the same as minifigure mold as other Battle Droids. The whole minifigure is mostly dark brown. It has some white face printing on the head and a red dot on the chest. The Commando Droid Captain also has the standard blaster as it’s accessory.
The first part of the build is the Sniper Droid Droideka. It’s mostly brown colored on the exterior shell. There is a sniper rifle on the body area. The droid walks on three legs which are made from claw pieces. It does not fold up to roll away.
The main part of the set is the AT-RT or the predecessor of the AT-ST. They are also loosely called the “chicken-walker” because of the design and movement. The AT-RT is a single passenger transport that has articulated legs and feet. The majority of the AT-ST’s color is a nice combination of blue and grey. The transport is equipped with a front-mounted blaster that can swivel. There’s also a storage for the Clone Trooper’s blaster behind his seat.
If you didn’t get a chance to pick up the previous version of the AT-RT, you should definitely pick up this this set. There are some good minifigures including the 501st Legion Clone Trooper. The walker itself is nicely designed. I don’t see anything wrong with the set except for a few minor stickers. You also get a lot of spare pieces which is nice and the low price per piece ratio with a lot of useful pieces makes the AT-RT an attractive set to pick up.
