I haven't posted here in a while. Thought I'd return with a bang. My friend and I are working on a rather large Crait MOC. Having a minifig scaled AT-AT(which will eventually have to be converted to the first order version for this MOC), I was challenged with having to design an AT-M6 to go along with it. This is what I came up with. UCS AT-M6 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr Specs: -Over 15,000 pieces -(Almost) Full interior with lights -It stands 34.5 inches tall Here are some more pics: UCS AT-M6 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr UCS AT-M6 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr UCS AT-M6 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr UCS AT-M6 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr UCS AT-M6 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr UCS AT-M6 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr AT-M6 Cockpit by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr AT-M6 Cockpit by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr FAQ: Q: Why aren't the legs bent or angled? A: The knees do not bend because there simply is no lego joint that could support the weight of a model like this(it weighs around 35-40 pounds). The legs are not angled to make it a more stable model. The body is very huge and having the legs angled means fewer connections points from the legs to the body, which means reduced stability. As it stands now, it is a very solid build, and can even withstand some light pushes without falling over. Q: Where's the third room on the bottom level? A: I had to omit it! That room is positioned between the top of the two front legs would be inaccessible if I added it in. Q: Is it *really* minifig scale? Looks too small next to the AT-AT! A: I had somewhat limited reference material with this when I was initially designing it. I had no clear picture of it next to an AT-AT that wasn't at a weird angle. As such, it ended up being about and inch and a half shorter than it should. I MAY go back at some point and make it a little taller. Until then, I think it looks fine :). Let me know what you guys think!
