Ras 74 asked me in the "2010 news and rumours" topic to start a topic about my AT-AT. First I have to say sorry Ras, it took a bit long. First I had to create a Brickshelf account, but today I made some pictures.
I built it almost completely from new gray parts. I tried to use the old colours only if there was no other option.
It took about 9-10 mounths to finish it, because I wanted it as cheap as possible (but only with "new" parts!). If I remember correctly, it costed for me around 80-90$, but without the printed parts. As you can see, I used 4 other slopes instead of the printed head piece, and plain dishes on the legs. That made it more cheaper, but I think, it still looks good. :)

I hope You can compare it with the new one, and I can help you all, weather to buy the new one or not. (Or maybe build it from BL like I did. :))

I started another "from Bricklink" set building. It is the 10179 UCS Millennium Falcon. :)
I have about 8-900 parts already, but I think it will take about 1,5-2 years. My goal would be Christmas, but I think it is totally hopeless.
(But if You guys have some parts you don't need, just send it to me! :D)

p.s.: Sorry for my english! :)

Very nice.  I wish that I could get the old AT-AT but, I just don't have the money.  Again great mod on this really great set. :classic:

It looks great and you hit it right on the head, and it looks good in the new grey. :classic:
