Duplo AT-AT
An original design for a Star Wars AT-AT made out of Duplos. It utilizes the Duplo Toolos to allow for leg and head motion.
About this creation

I found out rather quickly that the scale of this model was more than the Toolo joints were made to handle. The weight constantly threatened to throw the whole thing to the ground. But, honestly, it is the Empire's fault. Center of gravity way up in the air, with long skinny legs underneath?? The empire certainly didn't invest much in university schooling for their engineers. But it does look big and bad (well, the movie models -- I don't know about mine.)

I enjoyed getting some good use out of my Toolos. The head actually moves back and forth and up and down. (Well, it mostly stays in the down position due to the weight...) I need to make a smaller, more durable design for my kids to play with since they thought it was really cool until they found out they couldn't touch it. "Wow cool Dad!!!" -> "No! Stay back! My toys!!"


I tried to use longer legs that I thought might be more accurate to the scale. The blue color really throws it off, however. It also doesn't help that the AT-AT legs are oriented the wrong way. They are skinny in the wrong direction.


This shorter-leg version is much more stable since it has one less joint in the legs. Not exactly suitable for my kids to "walk around" with, but at least I am not afraid of breathing near it.

Quoting Torobasa . Wonderful job. This shows that duplo can be taken as serious as system and technic. My only question is where did you get all those duplo parts?
Thanks! In answer to your question, mostly ebay, but the grays and blacks came from the really cool Duplo Castle sets they came out with (and discontinued way too quickly!!).
