Hello everyone!

Today I'd like to present you a model that is long overdue in my collection - the AT-ST. Let me quickly explain why. The official mini AT-ST of the LEGO® company is one of the few mini models of them that I really like. Hence I decided to go smaller for my version, and the idea how to do that came to me a few weeks ago. :classic:

So here it is, the 9-piece All-Terrain Scout Transport (AT-ST). Click the image to get the instructions.

It uses a pair of droid arms and a droid torso. The torso allows for the attachment of a 1x1 clip plate enabling us to get the front of the head slightly sloped. :classic:

Have a great sunday everyone!

Yours Christopher.

For a nine piece model this is stunning- such a simple yet accurate reconstruction of a classic vehicle. Keep it up!

Now if only the Empire had such a small piece count for Their AT-STs they would have been unstoppable at Endor!

Anyways :grin:  This is excellent and very piece efiiecient too. I f you want you could probably make a whole little army out of these!

How close is this to 1:200 scale? Because it looks about the size of Roguebantha's AT-ST, which you have definitely bested.  :thumbup:

Sheer brilliance! only 9 pieces and there is no doudbt when you see it your looking at an AT-ST. What I find mind boggeling is the amount of detail you can get with this amount of pieces.

WOW!
i think this is my favourite mini model of yours, Legostein
Instantly recognisable, clean, detailed and perfect!
Personally I never use the connection that you've used for the feet, but it definitely looks great like that, and the droid arms are surprisingly effective, and I bet using this basic plan you could make numerous AT-ST variants. There are quite a few similar, yet subtly different versions you could make.
I think you could make it in Tan, too - A desert version!

Glad to see more of your work, regards
Will/Rocketbilly

This is truly outstanding work, the resemblance is striking and still it uses only a few pieces.

Great work as always!

This is just ingenuity at its best - a very impressive 9-piece creation indeed. With that small piece count you were able to get the basic shape of AT-ST. Great work as usual Legostein! :thumbup:

Incredible work Legostein. Even in one small model, you've managed to incorperate a good deal of detail. Nice!

Hello again everyone!

I am flattered by all the nice words for this tiny walker! :classic:

I admit that it's not all too stable with the solution for the feet. It's a technique I normall strictly avoid as it's kind of an illegal connection. But the scale of the AT-ST presented here is so small that I didn't see any other solution at that time. And it needs the 2x4 clear plate to not bend over. But I guess it's good enough for the display cabinet. :classic:

Thanks again and see you all soon!

No, it shouldn't.  :grin:
Move the droid arms slightly back on the clip, so that only the forward-most arm of the clip on the droid arm is squeezed into the 1x1 clip. Then rotate the walker slightly backwards until it balances. :classic:

Yes it can also stand when it's moving, meaning making a step. But it looks kind of weird, so I went for the plate as it's the more typical AT-ST pose. :wink:

No, I meant change the position in which the droid arm attaches to the clip.

See, if only the forward-most portion of the hand of each droid arm is attached to the clips, then you can play around with the angle at which the walker stands until it balances.
