(CapnRex is away at the moment so I'm posting on his behalf).
To go with yesterday's Clone Trooper, today we have an AT-TE mini model. This is a rather popular vehicle in the films, although the past Advent Calendar models of walkers have been unsuccessful (as evidenced by last year's distinctly average AT-AT). This model is quite reasonable in my opinion, although it lacks accuracy, mainly down to the complexity of the actual AT-TE which we see in the latter films of the Prequel Trilogy, and extensively in the Clone Wars.
The model consists of fifteen small pieces, which makes it a little fragile. However it does capture the appearance of the vehicle fairly well, with the most prominent features of the six legs and the gun nicely recreated. The legs are moveable, as is the gun on top, and a 1 x 1 slope in trans-black is included to form the driver's cab at the front.
Perhaps the most bizarre inclusion however is the dark bluish grey 1 x 1 round plate on the top, which looks a little out of place.
Overall - 3.5 - Quite a nice little interpretation of a difficult vehicle to recreate, but lacking in accuracy in my opinion.
