AT-RT

Hey everyone,

I was never happy with LEGO's version of the AT-RT, the proportions, the colours and mostly the scale... almost the size of an AT-ST! The several sets I bought were reduced to [very useful] parts and the excellent clonetroopers reassigned within my grand army. So, a while ago I decide to create my own version of the AT-RT which some of you may remember it from the Eurobricks Clone Wars competition. I've subtly updated my version since then and decided to showcase it here... hope you all like it!

All Terrain Recon Transport.

And the dis-mounted AT-RT pilot.

The main challenges I had with re-creating the AT-RT all related to scale; getting the general shape right and creating legs that looked authentic while keeping it small and not going overboard in parts. The legs are slightly weak for play, but it stands and poses well for my purposes being a collector-displayer. I love Arealight's custom parts and used one of their specialised clonetrooper helmets. There's also a clone blaster by Little Arms in the last image. I'm pretty happy with finished model and now have two in my grand army!

Nice piece of work! I like how you design the walker. Looks realistic and similar to the orignal concept. Thanks for sharing. Come to think of it, I beginning to like how LEGO Clone Wars design. It's very nicely designed.

Great design. :classic: I agree to that the one lego made was a bit unporportionate. I really like yours and the helmet looks good too! :thumbup: It is from Arealight right?

Yep, the helmet is a custom from Arealight.

Cheers for the great comments everyone!

Great work pedro.

I like it :wub:

Simple, yet a perfect design for this small walker.

I'm not sure I'll prefer this over the Clone Scout Walker.

Perhaps an army of CSW's and this would look awesome.

How about posting an inventory for the lazy ones of us, who'd like to build this beaty themselves.

Thanks again for the positive comments! When I'm come to photograph my section of the EB Community Castle I'll do a photographic inventory at the same time :wink:

This AT-RT is really well done. I really like how you used only no special pieces to make the legs in an easy but realistic way.

Great job !!

That's Great, but I would make the legs a little thicker, because to me it looks a little flimsy. I'm gonna need to buy a couple o' those AR-RT pilots though...

Very nice :thumbup: ! I can't seem to figure out how you built the feet!? I really like the use of Arealight, it makes it look like a pro made it.

I like it, the driver gets your attention. As for the detail, truly curious on how you combined those slopes. Watch out though, there's competition out there. 5 out of out of 5! ;)
