Hey everyone,

I've just uploaded new photos of my AT-ST on Brickshelf. After being disappointed by Lego's second attempt at the wallker, I decided to build my own version... and it fits two pilots too :classic:

Here's the first exterior shot:

The rear of the 'head':

...and without.

Please take a look and feel free to comment. Cheers!

Thats really great. The two pilots look a bit squished, but definitely better than TLC's. :thumbup:

Great work pedro.
I'll index this on Sunday, not at home for the weekend and working the index on this slower pc is a menace.
I like your solutions and the design.
Now that's an AT-ST :thumbup:  :thumbup:

The pilots look kinda squished, but other than that it's really great, detailed, kinda like a minifig scale UCS model.
So am I still waiting, for this world to stop hating. Can't find a good reason, can't find hope to believe in.

Thanks for your comments! Aye, there's not a massive amount of room for the pilots but they do fit in there snugly. I wanted to keep the design as true as possible to the movies and maintain the right proportions while keeping the model at minifig scale, so had to sacrifice a little room in the cockpit. I could imagine that there wouldn't be a lot of breathing-space in the real thing anyway!

It's perfect.  To all those who think the cockpit is too small - it's just right - this is a war machine, not a sedan!  It's pretty accurate to the kind of interior space available as demonstrated in ROTJ.

I really is  :thumbup: but unfortunately this would cost more because I think it has more parts and 2 minifigs.

Impressive AT-ST!  :thumbup: I find it pretty closer to the original and, of course, much better than the TLC one  :wink:

That is so cool, I have been toying around with the idea of building one of them, Ans know I will try my hand at it.

Thanks for sharing.

Very nice MOC Pedro.
I never got along with the re-design that TLC did.
I might be one of a few that likes the old design better.
Specially when the colours are changed.

This is by far one of the best I have seen so far.
Keep it up!

Thanks again for all the great comments, I really appreciate it!

I wanted to create an AT-ST as authentic as possible so used lots of reference pictures. Having the capacity for two pilots is a feature we've all hoped for in Lego's releases but never got so it made a lot of sense for me to include that in my MOC. I'm glad you all like it!
