Review of the Star Wars Black Series AT-AT Pilot

Black Series AT-AT pilot from Empire Strikes Back

You would have thought Obi-Wan or Jyn from Rogue One would be the most popular Star Wars figurine to buy but the highest selling 'action figure' on Amazon is the Black Series AT-AT pilot.

This pilot is not even a named character from any of the movies but yet, selling like hot cakes and it's not even Christmas.

So why?

Fans want them! 

This pilot featured in The Empire Strikes Back, one of the most popular sci-fi movies of all time, let alone arguably the best of all the Star Wars movies. 

Fans want them to put on their desks at work and they want them to give them to there kids so that they may share in the joy and love of Star Wars. 

And they look so cool to boot! This 6 inch collectable is very well designed with a fine attention to detail proving its worth after it the paint has been applied. 

Check out this close up and see for yourself!

The pilot has multiple points of articulation so he can be made to perform some very realistic poses.

Not convinced? 

Here's the official product description from the manufacturer:

"The Empire’s combat drivers are trained to handle everything in the Imperial ground arsenal, but AT-AT pilots see themselves as elite, controlling their massive four-footed assault vehicles in combat against Rebel targets.

Recall moments of intense battle with this Star Wars Black Series 6-inch AT-AT Pilot figure that includes a signature accessory and features premium deco across multiple points of articulation. 

Kids and adults alike can re-create the exciting stories of good versus evil in a galaxy far, far away with this Star Wars Black Series 6-inch AT-AT Pilot action figure from Star Wars: Episode V, designed for iconic role play and ultimate collectability."

Which all sounds nice and fun but what do people who have actually bought the pilot think? 

Reviewers on Amazon have been quick with their praise:
  • "Awesome action figure. A great addition to my collection.'
  • "All the troopers of the Black Series are great and this one is no different. Excellent detail."
  • "As described, shipped fast..."
So that's very positive. 

Check out the price on Amazon, for $19.99 we think this AT-AT pilot is great value and kids will love it. 

But wait! There is another Skywalker Stormtrooper!

From the same series and movie is the Stormtrooper that took part in the ground assault against the Rebel's hidden base on Hoth. It's a fine complementary figure to the pilot:
