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

    The Head - No, it is not the understated as just another AT-AT, because it won’t be, but for the matter of this topic, it is, momentarily, just a head. Though merely a head, it makes a rather astonishing display piece by itself. Aside from the towering height and lumbering movement of this terrifying machine, the head is quite formidable in appearance, resembling that of a fearsome beast. - In the course to build my original creation of the greatly revered imperial walker of the grand army of the empire, I amass a wealth of reference material concerning studio models, replicas, on-screen images, artwork, etc., to meticulously build the perfect LEGO incarnation that is indubitably authentic to the movies. I have been building this minifigure-scale AT-AT for quite some time—I recall since 2012 with the start of the body section. However, as of recently, since early 2015, I have built the head for this admirable tool of destruction. - Furthermore recently, I have been constructing the infrastructure of the body, acquiring additional parts & correct colors, making considerable amount of alterations, but I have postponed most of this to venture off and design my original minifigure-scale T-47 Airspeeder (Snowspeeder) in LDD, which turned out into a successful MOC and will be a great companion. I planned after that to resume progress with the AT-AT, but after I was inspired by anothergol’s innovative use of paint rollers and mudguards for the waist of his articulated AT-ST, I was just motivated to jump ahead and create my own creation of the imposing “chicken walker” beforehand. Mine, which will implement those techniques of his that I mentioned early, but also the 5 x 5 Scala dish. Interestingly, my own creation first turned out MF-scale, then evolved into UCS scale, then separated into two projects: a MF-scale and UCS scale! A considerable amount of progress has been completed on both projects, with the MF-scale almost finished and the UCS scale having feet and the waist finished. However, for concern of the UCS model, I have postponed its progress to focus on the MF-scele—to complete that and finally resume progress with the MF-scale AT-AT walker. - Regarding this MOC of the AT-AT head, you should notice that I deliberately took some liberty in the greebling located at the bottom. This was a compromise due to the thickness of some elements and from the lack of elements that could properly represent those tiny details, in this scale, authentically. I was as well tight on space for building the main cannons. I originally wanted to attribute a sliding action to them, as if they were in action, but this was unfortunately omitted due to a number of things, which includes: space, structure, scale, parts, etc., which also brought them closer together than intended. Along with other things, like the lack of other small details on the face and others things, that is practically as far as inaccuracies go for it. Nevertheless, one extra detail I have included, which I have not seen previously before represented, are the light fixtures atop the medium support blasters mounted on the cheeks. Then among other characteristics, I can grasp the head by the neck and jerk it around without any parts coming undone, with exception to the roof because it is not fixed together (kinda like other @@ heads I know of ). That rigid likability is attributed to the infrastructure constructed exclusively with Technic & modified plates (w) Technic elements, which also clutches the sides securely in place and almost seamlessly with other aspects. For this fact of such a packed, robust, complex infrastructure, there is no interior, likewise for the whole body—I never had intentions to include such luxuries anyway, but I congratulate those who did. - To determine the dimensions of a MF-scale AT-AT walker, I first acquired theorized dimensions of the actual walker from an in depth survey of its structural components, capabilities, practical role, and tactical uses: here. Wookieepedia is informative in some areas, but it claims the walker is taller than it is longer, which it is clearly not. Besides the overall dimension of the walker’s height and length, this technical commentary also provides a reasonable measurement of its width, diameter of the footpads, and other aspects like the height of boarding hatch. I also found this useful: here. To find the MF-scale, it took some little conversion of average human being height, minifigure height, dividing, multiplying, then more multiplying, but it came out to be around 20in/50cm. Some time on, I took the actual height of my model from toe to the main section of the body and acquired the measurements around 21in/53.34cm, then rework some steps back to get the plausible measurements of 85ft/26m. For the footpads, each are 12 studs in diameter and its height a few measures above a minifigure's chin. So the model is rather on scale for minifigures’ height, as well other aspects in general scaling, as according to the probable height of an actual AT-AT walker. - If there is any misconception about the visor of the command viewport being transparent red, I have some valid reasons to put those to rest. At first, if you notice the moment when five imperial walkers are advancing towards echo base, only the lead walker exhibits a red visor. During the scene, where General Maximilian Veers oversees the battlefield through the viewport the visor is transparent clear. Logically, if the visor was transparent red it could not beam as so bright as it did in a cloudy, snow filled day—not even in a sunny day. Though it appears black this is due to the overcasting shadow from the outside portion of the viewport. Therefore, the red lighting is believably a system for operations in low light periods or environments, to preserve the crews vision in these circumstances, while still being able to function about in the walker. - Well, if you are still reading, I am done for expressing this MOC, for I believe I have covered everything concerning the model and relating to it that was on my mind to say. So, you can finally enjoy the photos and express your own thoughts, criticisms, questions, etc. below. However, bear in mind that I will not be giving out any form of direction that will describe or depict how it is built—I appreciate that this is understood in advance of your comments. Much appreciated, LiLmeFromDaFuture
  2. And here comes my latest MOC/mashup. This is an AT-DT which is very briefly seen in Solo, a Star Wars story. Its turret immediatly made me think to a mix between a German WW2 sIG 33 and a FLAK 88. AT-DT by Veynom, on Flickr For this model, I have really mashed up existing MOCs found on the Internet, existing sets, and my own freedom. The turret is based on the excellent model from Bricksfeeder on Rebrickable. The front armored panel was modified to remove a stress issue and suppress the gaps between the front and side panels. Side panels were also adapted. The main body is taken from the set 75201: First Order AT-ST but updated (rebuilt) for balance purpose. I kept the rotating mechanism. For the legs, I first started from those from the 75201 but then I completely rebuilt them to better match the canon shape. I found a robust solution with the feet connection from set 75083 (AT-DP) allowing me to connect th enice design of Bircksfeeder's feed to my legs. Balance is maintained as long as you do not shake it too much. Rear view: a minifig can easily sit inside. AT-DT rear view by Veynom, on Flickr AT-DT by Veynom, on Flickr Regarding scale, it can be compared to a minifig and to a smaller AT-MB (Mobile Battery) AT-MB and AT-DT by Veynom, on Flickr AT-DT and AT-MB by Veynom, on Flickr Then I've asked my friend Muad'Brick to abuse of his virtual skills on my pictures and he came up with this: AT-DT - Ewoks Killer by Veynom, on Flickr And this: AT-DT Flower Power Variant by Veynom, on Flickr Ans because size does not matter, here is the microscale version (13 parts): Micro AT-DT by Veynom, on Flickr PS: ABefore you ask, no, I have no LDD of my final model but the excellent original model from Bricksfeeder is available on Rebrickable.
  3. Hi Guys! It's already 2 months ago I made this MOC but I forget to share here with you so... I show you my MOC of the AT-DT! I let you watch the showcase video. And the quick scene I made for a LEGO Convention. Free PDF Instructions are available on Rebrickable : https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-18202/BricksFeeder/at-dt-walker/ Don't forget to mention me if you use this design. ) Let me know what you think about! See you soon!

    [MOC] AT-TE v2!

    Is it too late for a Clone Wars related MOC? After many years of sitting in a box, waiting to be finished. I have finally completed my scale AT-TE. The story begins back in 2008 After getting the 7675 version, I decided to make it more movie accurate and minifig scale. I wanted to keep the color scheme the same of 7675. I started building December of 2008 with my first version.(seen in other folder). It was then in 2012, I had taken the challenge attempting to motorize the walker. It was an on and off project with many trials and tribulations. I found the project too difficult to complete, and got burned out by it. At that point I just wanted a scale AT-TE, I had then decided to re-haul the entire walker, starting from the ground up, using most of the original outer shell. This is what I believe to be an accurate representation of the walker. Model features opening troop doors, rotating cannon, accurate opening cockpit, posable legs, and a handle for carrying. I present to you my Scale AT-TE walker. http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/429975 https://www.flickr.com/photos/113021024@N05/ I hope you like the model, and as always feedback is appreciated!
  5. Guys & Gals, Here's a Theo Jansen inspired strandbeest (walker) with 24 legs. It's crankshaft has six points (not 4) like most builders use. It walks pretty well. I'm working on the building instructions which is taking quite a while. I have some learning to do on LDD and LDraw and etc. But here is a still photo and a youtube video.

    MOC: Imperial/First Order AT-ST

    (Sorry for poor picture quality.) Decided to finally get around to posting my MOC/MOD of the AT-ST walker, with TLJ showing off the FO version of it. I decided to have both versions present,with the original model converted simply by adding a few new parts. The MOC is based off the walker that came with the Battle of Endor set, with a almost identical head, but with the legs being built with ball joints to create a more movie accurate look. This makes the walker far more posable and flexible, however it can be difficult to set up and quite fidgety. The legs can be held in place by 'stoppers' built into the side of the legs. Original walker and the 5 parts used for FO version. Ball joint 4x4 piece with Bionical joint. More shots of the FO version:
  8. Make more animals! So I made a six legged walking dragon. It is based on "basic walking frame" by JK Brickworks ( http://jkbrickworks.com/motorized-mic... ). Very primitive, however kids like when the veeery slow dragon tries to catch them :) Video:

    [MOC] Midi-Scale AT-TE

    I had built this solely for use in one of my Ring-worlds (Link to that topic blow) But I felt it was a build in its own right too so I decided to create a separate thread (hope that's okay?) Anyway, this was a fairly quick build because it was one of those rear moments where everything just.. fits you know? The only part I really had trouble with was connecting the two half's together.. And then of course remembering what I'd done in order to make a second one! Let me know what you think and any suggested improvements are especially welcome!

    [MOD] AT-ST

    While Googling images of walker MOCs for inspiration I found this older post by @DarthTwoShedsJackson showing their build: Naturally, it wasn't wobbly, I mean poseable enough for my tastes, so I made some modifications with ball joints and changed a few details. It can be put into some nice dynamic poses now, although you have to be really careful doing so. Only time will tell if the click hinges are going to be bent due to the angled positions. Anyway, hope you like what I did with your design!

    [MOC] XTS-620

    Receiving transmission: "Commandant. We have recovered the secret data from the archive. The data was highly encrypted but after our best hacker decrypted it, we found out that it had highly sophisticated mech frame plans. We carried out the XTS-620 experimental mech frame to the test range and it pretty much passed all the test in record timing. This is one of the most destructive mech we have ever built. We call it "Twins". This "Twins" mech is piloted by two pilots working in perfect harmony with eachother. The left side is mounted with a highly destructive gauss ion cannon. It has enough power to pierce our experimental "Cocoon" armor. The weapon is still not fully tested so do not go over 70% power or you risk destroying the arm completely. On the left side, we have a high pressurized pyromite launcher that has 3 times the range of our standard pyromite launchers. Also for melee combat, the left arm is mounted with a large plasmite claw. There is enough power to crush a class 5 titan head like an egg. The legs are equipped with experimental dampening systems that allow the mech to jump down without any damage to the actuators. This mech requires highly trained pilots that can sync up in perfect harmony. We have sent you this experimental mech for a field test on real action. Be cautious." -Mech build lab

    [WIP] MOC of the AT-ST Walker in LDD

    One of the several projects and great MOCs to come, which I have been designing recently in LDD—the AT-ST walker. In brief, this project was initiated after I was inspired by the original design of the waist by anothergol for his articulated AT-ST. Specifically, I was impressed with his subtle utilization of paint brushes and mudguards to easily recreate some of distinct details and features on this region. In addition, I as well, implemented the 5 x 5 scala dishes as the mounts for the support cannons. Then interestingly, I did not notice this until recently, but structure of the feet are designed similarly, with significant use of bracket elements—what a coincidence! However, mine will most likely not accommodate minifigures. Since there are different models of the AT-ST used in the movies and many illustrations of the AT-ST, the principal image I reference is the blueprints of the walker from ROTJ, which was a hybrid of the model actual seen in that movie with a boxy head and the one featured in ESB that had elongated legs. Regarding the design, I took quite a bit of liberty with some of the proportions and details. Specifically, the legs are thicker than should be for a minifigure scale AT-ST, which is lightly attributed to the available elements, but to also an exceptionally sturdy design—it is sophisticated yet simultaneously subtle. Likewise, the waist significantly thinner as compared to the legs and head importantly. This is reason to the length of the mudguard used as the carapace being 2 x 4 rather than conveniently being 2 x 6. Besides the absent connections in the head, as I have yet to design that, the fragmented legs is because those elements are not available in LDD. Lastly, since I could not utilize BlueRender, because I happen to not know how to operate it on Macs, even though I read the tips, I alternatively made an LDD photo box that is comprised of 48 x 48 base plates, hinge plates, and curved bricks :-) Forward view: Rightward view: Rearward view: Leftward view: Downward view: Dramatic view: If you notice for the main cannon, I used the flexible bars, which are hollowed at the ends. Leg details: Brackets are the fundamental element for durable legs. Foot details: Waist details: Brackets are also fundamental here.
  14. Standing 58cm tall and 59cm long, this AT-AT from Star Wars is probably my largest robot to date. It is controlled by an EV3 p-brick, and is capable of walking, turning its neck, and shooting balls from a twin-ball launcher located inside its head. Here is a list of the functions of the robot: - Walking: 2 EV3 large motors - Neck turning: 1 EV3 medium motor - Shooting: 1 NXT motor Also includes an EV3 IR sensor for use with the EV3 IR remote. After getting the BWE, I had a plentiful supply of grey beams and panels, which I used in the aesthetics of the model. The head design was the most tricky part of the build. I needed it to look good, while at the same time have enough space for the twin-ball shooter with magazines. However, I'm happy with the end result, as it looks quite accurate to the actual thing. With the amount of pieces I had, I was also able to achieve a (almost) full body cover, which although adds to the weight of the robot, looks really nice. There are also two flaps on top of the head that can be lifted up to access the ball magazines. Walking was especially tricky to achieve in this model, as it was so top heavy. Rubber bands had to be used to help pull in the legs when they bore the load of the robot, otherwise the motors would not have enough torque. All legs are controlled simultaneously by the two motors, so the robot theoretically can't turn. However, I doubt the robot could turn even if the two sides could be controlled independently, since it is so top heavy. The EV3 brick can be accessed through opening of the panels on the side of the body. This was the easiest way to access the electronics while keeping a full-body cover (The real AT-AT in the movies also had opening side body panels). Here is a video of the AT-AT walking, turning its neck, and shooting. More information about the robot can be found here: https://www.us.lego.com/en-us/mindstorms/community/robot?projectid=afba4def-3b6b-49f3-8e0f-f964224763d9 Hope you enjoyed this robot!

    [MOC] XT-G20

    Receiving transmission: "Commandant. We have a solution to the invasion from the coast side. We would like you to try our latest weapon: the XT-G20. This combat walker is equipped with heavy lasers that will destroy the flying enemies with pinpoint accuracy. The lasers need a short time to ramp up but after charged, they can shoot down fliers from long distances. To keep swarming enemies on their toes, we added 8 long range missile pods to the shoulders that have flak tips. If however an enemy or two gets to land, we gave the XT-G20 arms that can punch or grasp into things. The XT-G20 is a heavy class mech with medium armor and it's only weakness is attacks from behind. It's however exceptional at long range anti air combat. Use your radar and locate the enemy fliers before they get too close. We have sent you 5 XT-G20's to help you in your next mission." -Mech build lab "Alright, let's see what this mech is made of. There is a large swarm headed our way." -Commandant

    [MOC] SW-K10 "Sasquatch"

    Receiving transmission: "Commandant. We have designed a new weapon for your command. May we introduce to you, the SW-K10. We nicknamed him.. "The Sasquatch". This combat walker is equipped with corrosive pyromite flamethrowers that will melt the armor from the outside and cook everything in the inside. This pyromite chemical will stick to any surface and continue to burn up to 5 hours on it's own. For ranged combat, we added some explosive tip medium range missiles to help you get closer to the enemies. We do not recommend to get up close and personal but as a last case scenario, we added some plasmite claws that heat up and help you claw trough heavier armor like it's paper. The SW-K10 is a medium class mech with high armor so it's only weakness is the slow movement speed. But the armor should make you durable enough to withstand long ranged weaponry for a short duration. Use terrain as your advantage and get to medium or short range to wreak havoc to the enemies. We have sent you 10 SW-K10's to aid you in your next mission." -Mech build lab "Ten SW-K10's deployed. Let's turn up the heat and roast some aliens." -Commandant
  17. Hi Technic builders, I wanted to build a simple walker, so I looked on the internet for simple mechanisn that I could copy. I saw Sariel's walkers, and some others, but they always needed technic parts that I do'nt have, or at least not in the required quantity. But I got inspiration from all those builds and started building a simple mechanism, on which I claim no partenity! As you can see on the video, the movement isn't really fluid. That's mostly due to the legs I used, which are too wobly to hold the weight. Also the feets slipped on the paper sheets. A third pair of legs would solve most of the problems... As I wanted the walker frame to remain as small as possible, I used only one motor, and thus making the walker only able to move in straight line. I made a quick LDD file and put it on my website, if anyone want to take a look at it.

    [TC10] AT-AT

    Hi, Here is my progress so far on my attempted entry for the pneumatic challenge: I am trying to build an AT-AT walker, but is proving to be very, very challenging ... The mess of tubes inside the structure are part of the pneumatic sequencer that control the legs. For each leg four phases are defined: 1) Whole leg backwards 2) Bend knee to lift lower leg 3) Move leg forward & straighten knee 4) Move straight leg backwards The four legs are kept out of phase with each other to keep at east two legs straight at all times (either forward or backwards). In fact the sequence is not ideal, since 2 out of the 4 phases have a leg in the air (2+3), while idealy only one phase should have a leg in the air because then there are always 3 legs supporting the weight. What definitely not helps is the hopelessly high center of gravity combined with a ridiculous small base for the feet. With a manual pump I can make the whole assembly walk to some degree (well, walk, let's call it stumbling forward), but after a few steps it usually topples over sideways. When I add the batterybox and a small pump it doesn't even move the legs when I lift the model in the air. Apparently one small pump does not build up enough pressure... So, decision time... Option 1) Continue with the model (I do have some cool ideas for the head still including a simple return to center mechanism for rotating the head ). Solve the pressure issue with either more small pumps or by going manual (saves weight as well) Option 2) Abandon project and go for a six-legged walker (AT-TE) which is much less of a challenge, but has therefor also a much higher chance of actually working in the end. What would be your advice? Jeroen

  24. Everyone has met Bob the Janitor at least once. Bob usually populates schools and offices, it is usually seen on its own and doesn’t form herds, and it feeds on shoeprints recovered from the floor as well as on schoolchildren’s fear. He has a strong territorial instinct and may be aggressive if his freshly cleaned floor is trespassed. Interestingly, his age appears to be constant but advanced, although all attempts at carbon dating have been unsuccessful. Theories abound about how Janitor is often actually older than the building he maintains and how he gets an extra year added to his lifespan for each scene he causes against the trespassers. The distinguishing features of a Janitor include the Broom of Doom, a sleepy yet vigilant and always suspicious look, a mandatory mustache, a cigarette that never burns out, and a belly used to store gathered shoeprints for later consumption. Thus it is possible to visually estimate the effectiveness of any Janitor by the size of his belly. The Janitor’s mating habits and methods of breeding remain unverified, mostly due to an underdeveloped sexual dimorphism (it’s extremely difficult to tell males from females), as well as due to the fact that sightings of more than a single specimen within the same territory are exceedingly rare. No one has actually seen Janitor’s offspring either, which led some to believe than instead of mating, this species relies on cloning. More: http://sariel.pl/201...ob-the-janitor/
  25. Hi guys, Just recently completed my first Star Wars oriented MOC, the Republic Laat/c with ATTE. I started this build about 3 years ago and it was going to be just the ship itself before I took up the walker project about a month ago. This is probably my largest MOC to date, and it's by far the heaviest. The hardest part was allowing the walker to connect and detach from the ship easily without the walker's weight putting too much strain on the bricks. Republic Dropship and AT-TE by James Asbury, on Flickr Let me know what you think! You can find all of my creations and more photos of the build at flickr.com/photos/jasbury
