    [MOC] my first try for an AT-ST

    Let no Rebel judge this walker by its size, less their gaze wanders into the eyes of an aggressive abyss, intimidating even the bravest of defiant scum!

    Which UCS sets to keep and which to sell?

    I certainly plan to! For a MOC, using parts in colors readily available and currently in production was a fundamental focus in the design process, so to reproduce it would be relatively easy.

    Which UCS sets to keep and which to sell?

    Close for sure! That period of updating one thing after the other, and another, over and over has slowed down these last few months. Then comes testing the design and build process, which I look forward to exploring more openly!

    (WIP) Hoth Battle - Minifig scale (Richboy AT-AT + more)

    @Fonne I never tire of seeing one LEGO AT-AT after another, nor do I cease to find amusing the common mistake of the leg fixed to the foot backward Keep up the great progress anyway!

    NEW UCS AT-AT TEASED!!!!!

    @krisandkris12 Well, ironically, I wanted to explain the situation thoroughly and plain as so not to sound like I'm coming from a position of obstinacy, though I might have done the exact opposite! Much has changed besides outward appearances, since the last time I shared an update. Perhaps the most dramatic change regarding this project has taken place in my building style; it has seriously evolved since when I started back in 2012, and from the results, I believe it has for the better. Yes, to an extent. It could otherwise stand as if in a stride, though the turntables main role establishes a more than adequate connection to the legs, as opposed to bearing the weight of the walker on a single pin or axle. About 3" taller: 20.5"/52cm.

    NEW UCS AT-AT TEASED!!!!!

    @dmaclego @anothergol @krisandkris12 Trust me when I say, I did not, in the least bit, intend for it to turn out this unsightly, but the predicament seems completely unavoidable in the grand scheme of things. By this I mean, the "cam part" functions more so as an extension of the walker's framework than a manifest to its accuracy; the curved, slope elements merely enable, somewhat as it may be, a more graceful appearance, than an otherwise clunky chunk it would look. Despite its roundness, glaringly obvious to overlook, it will hardly elicit like honest opinions when compared to other aspects alongside its oddness … Though not to excuse it completely from its faults, just after redirected to my attention, I promptly began changing it, in a strong effort to proportion it better. Though then fresh with motivation at the beginning of this endeavor, I felt pleased with how well the changes progressed smoothly in my favor, but too soon it turned obvious it simply would not work. The underlying issue developed at the connection point to the leg. The leg connects to the “cam” via a small Technic turntable that fittingly rests as far up as possible, right under the build-work that makes up the rounded top of the leg; unsuitably unable to fit any higher. Big deal. Why does this beg to be mentioned? Well, simply put, once corrected, the leg then stood over the cam just a peek! Glaringly obvious to overlook, and to restate, the turntable cannot sit any higher, save for the leg made taller, which ideally I would not opt for. No. Not such impressive to that degree!

    Much more to this AT-AT remains to see its reveal, than what presently meets the eye; if this impresses, what will soon come should no doubt enthrall anticipation!

    NEW UCS AT-AT TEASED!!!!!

    Yes, those are its trouble areas, but trying to lose density might inadvertently diminish its definition gains A splash of sand blue makes juicy blends with monotone grays—delishous!

    NEW UCS AT-AT TEASED!!!!!

    That one, as it progressed with constant updates, actually turned out to scale larger than the minifigure-scale I desired to achieve originally. Once realizing this, I started completely from scratch; even what you see now changed drastically and developed from its early iterations…

    NEW UCS AT-AT TEASED!!!!!

    Sounds exciting! I have not heard anything about an AT-AT from Lego. I can wait contently for an official reveal, not so much like others So knowing the community's desire for one makes the appropriate opportunity far too good to pass exploiting it But hey! I did misspeak once, this is a new UCS AT-AT (mine) being teased; I cannot control the interpretation of others' though Glad you like the walker, though I actually have yet to finish designing it (if you can tell)! The proportions you speak of I did not achieve deliberately, but I am amazed how well the proportions turned out despite my otherwise directed priorities! Yes, a mediocre one at best!

    [MOC] [WIP] The Command of the AT-AT

    I am surprised how I seem to miss this despite the many times I have checked that category to ensure the parts used are in production and relatively easy to get, but yes, these will be especially perfect for the head!

    [MOC] [WIP] The Command of the AT-AT

    @krisandkris12 I have seen that video too and many times over! It mesmerizes me geekfully like the stop motion in ESB; its locomotion progresses smoothly, yet gives way to cumbersome feeling! A motorize AT-AT already presents its challenges, and it multiplies readily with a larger scale to accommodate all those monotonous, gape-inducing, details we pleasure, along with the mechanizing. Considering this all has drawn me to a possible application of the walker mechanized in a fashion similar to what this build has done for his AT-ST: AT-ST w.i.p by Carl Greatrix, on Flickr @anothergol The 1/4 octagonal ones, or something else I am missing?

    [MOC] [WIP] The Command of the AT-AT

    Many thanks! Without fail, the possibilities of Lego impresses me beyond amazement; it is such a wonderful medium to express imagination! Mechanizing a Lego AT-AT does sound like a dream come true, though, more than likely, not feasible with the design of details, but certainly a perfect goal for an even larger AT-AT. Regardless, I believe this AT-AT, that nears completion and to see its reveal soon, will indeed emerge a true gem, because it has felt so to me; reminiscing back in 2012, when I started with the idea of making a genuine minifig-scale AT-AT walker, and to see now how far it has gone—truly amazes me!

    [MOC] [WIP] The Command of the AT-AT

    @Evolved Turtle Many thanks! The rate of progress on the walker has tremendously increased to my amazement (building itself to an extent); I believe it will see its completion before the coming summer, then will come its grand reveal!
