Star Wars Rebels AT-DP Driver (Hasbro, 2014)

I was surprised to find an AT-DP Driver hanging on the pegs in Target last weekend, but I tried not to question my good fortune too much – they must have wanted to give me a birthday present. (Really, finding any 3.75″ scale Star Wars figures on the pegs is a victory these days.)
