LEGO 7155 - Trade Federation AAT

The Trade Federation Armored Assault Tank (AAT) comprised a significant portion of the Trade Federation's ground forces and appeared in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace where it was deployed at the Battle of Naboo as well as several Clone Wars episodes.

This set was obtained through the secondary market as it was first released in 2000 and is long out of production. Back then, it cost a mere US$20 for 158 pieces. Nonetheless, this is well-designed with a strong resemblance to the film version. Most of the bricks are tan and art is printed on the bricks rather than using decals.

It comes with two battle droid mini-figures, although most collectors would have wished for more. Excellent playability with a turret that swivels (to some extent), cannons that move up and down as well as hatches that open to store the droids.
