I've never posted a MOC on Eurobricks before, but having lerned some skills of Photoshop, and having created a new Flickr account, time has come for me to show a MOC of mine.
I herewith present you my version of the AT-AR (All Terrain Advance Raider), from the Marvel comics of the early eighties:
And this is a page from the 'original' comic:
More pictures can be found here, on my Flickr account.

I don't personally like the foot connection... (looks too thin at that point) but that is the way it is on the source.

I am a great fan of the "Classic Star Wars" comic series which is one of the best in my eyes. I instantly recognized the name in the topic title and hoped it would be this huge walker from the comic. An excellent representation providing the perfect spirit of the comic story.

What is the difference between a bad golfer ad a bad skydiver? A bad golfer goes: *whack* , darn.... and a bad skydiver goes darn, *Whack*

Tha plans of building this have been there for a long time really (as with so many projects I'm afraid...). Next to the last version of LEGO's AT-ST, it's exactly 50% higher when its legs are on their highest, just like the 'real' ones (AT-ST 8m, AT-AR 12m)
Let me come back to a few questions:
Q: Is it sturdy?
A: Yes it is! I used 2x3 wedge plates instead of 2x4 ones, but the latter are absolutely better. It will also walk better on tree logs than an AT-ST...
Q: Is it fully playable?
A: I don't play with my LEGO, so I couldn't tell. The head spins around, the cockpit opens and it has multiple joints which can put it in several positions, and a 'secret' compartment holding blasters...
Q: The legs are too thin!
A: Yes. Tried bricks with hinges as with the 'old' AT-ST, but frankly, the AT-AR looks better having Kate Moss legs rather than Oprah's really
R: I recognized it!
A: That's friggin cool! Star Wars fans aplenty, but you have to dig deep in order to find the true EU vehicle fans.
R: It's the first time I see one!
A: Well, there are a few more LEGO versions online really; it's not that unique. It's time Hasbro made a playable version out of it though, it's really a looker IMHO...
Q: Do you have pics of the inside?
A: Yes, but not online yet; it has an interior carrying two Stormtroopers, and below the belly there's a storage room for guns and binoculars...
R: The feet are great!
A: Thank the LEGO designer of the AT-AP for those
I still have to fork out some glitches with Photoshop, and then I'll have some interior shots as well

Nice job, I can't wait to see interior pics.
