The All Terrain Repeater Unit, a cousin to the infamous AT-RT, was loved by some, but hated by others. It used a style that was quite unusual. Instead of sitting down, the user would "stand" to operate the walker. Certain commanders would think that it was unethical, but soldiers loved the thrill.

Wow, nice MOC!  :classic:
I like how simple the whole thing is.  :thumbup:
It seems a bit funny, though...maybe just because it's too small.  :tongue:

thats real cool. I like how you used the stupid flick fire missiles in a positive way. I like how you used the grill on the front.

A simple, awesome MOC!  :sweet:

Yea, I love the flick-fire missiles. Ironically, I actually never use them for their real purpose... :tongue:

Ha, that's a good but funny moc.  It looks painful and bumpy to ride, I rode a motorbike over bumpy ground and I had trouble staying on.  This must be much harder.  But Hey!  It's Star Wars, it gets like that.  Excellant Moc, I love it and think it needs improving at the same time. :tongue:  :thumbup:

:laugh:
A simple, yet complex looking MOC you've done there.
Only thing that annoys me is, how does the weapon fire = where's the ammo storage?
I'd buy that the legs are powered by a very small nuclear device or something like that, but I think you should add a weapons backpack to the trooper.

I like it a lot! These are the types of MOC's that make me wish that there were smaller Star Wars sets.

However, if you are looking for constructive criticism, I would suggest that you possible change the feet somehow. Its just something about them thats too small and awkward.

Great walker though! Very original...

Practically a STAP....but not.  :tongue:  A little bit more like, "the exact opposite of a STAP, aside from the standing trooper."
