AT-ST
[...]
About this creation
The AT-ST's always been one of my favorites. The overall design is just awesome. Building mine, I went with my usual sizing, with emphasis on high amount of detail and low amount of studs. The most challenging part of the build was, probably as expected, getting the model to stand on its own two feet. It does - and with full articulation - but I did end up making a stand for it, since displaying it by itself was too scary.

AT-ST - Back
For this MOC, I also attempted to work the Technic required to hold it together into the overall design and shape, and not just as greebling or hiding it.

AT-ST - Head Right
Weapons! Everyone likes complicated guns, right? The main gun was a challenge, because of all the little cylinders on it. Binoculars solved that well, I think. One of the things I don't like about some AT-STs (my previous Midi-scale included) is that the concussion grenade launcher is too big, so I attempted to get that right in this model.

AT-ST - Head Left
The repeating guns on the side were a little troublesome as well; I still think they're a little bulky.

AT-ST - Head Rear
I love this shot. The hoses and shapes on the back of the 'head' work so well together.

AT-ST - Top
One thing a lot of people I've talked to assume about the AT-ST is that the cockpit hatch opens to the back. Actually, it opens to the side. To make things more difficult, I decided that a 3-wide hatch was the right size.

AT-ST - Say 'Hi!'
Full interior, of course. Seats two, comfortably. No shots of the whole interior at the time, but I'll probably take some eventually.

AT-ST - Rear End
This was one of my favorite parts to work on. I see all those great cheese slope mosaics others do, but I've never previously had a chance to do something like that myself. No, they're not all attached. Most are, but six are held in only by friction.

AT-ST - Hip Joint
This is probably the only place where I strayed from the basic design of the studio model. Instead of the leg rotating on a piece attached to a hinge, I went with a ball joint, which was much stronger than any of the other LEGO assemblies I could come up with.

AT-ST - Legs
Ooh, very tough, these. If you ever desire a feeling of intense satisfaction with an MOC, go build something that has to hold up a chunk of heavy SNOT with two legs that include multiple joints and have to be skinny and detailed. If you've never done a fist pump before, you will do one when you get it to stand up on its own.

AT-ST - Feet
Not totally satisfied with these. Couldn't find anything good for the fence cutters other than these, which lots of people use but are a bit on the small side.

AT-ST - Greebling
This is the only point in this vehicle where one can really greeble.

Much credit and inspiration is due to marshall banana. Source material I worked with can be found here Thanks for looking, C&C welcome!

Very nice rendition. I would really like to see the inside of the cockpit. The legs are beautiful especially at the very top how you have it so the hips can 'expand'

The detail in this model is absolutely breathtaking. You were able to keep the legs thin enough to look authentic while making it sturdy enough to stand. Kudos, my friend, kudos.

A truly excellent build! The attention to detail is outstanding. What I like best is that we both used the same source pictures for our builds! Great work.

This is great bro!!! One of the best versions of the AT-ST Ive seen in awhile. How do you do it. All the details are amazing, every piece is just in the right place. Could you take a look at my fighter. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/281429 I really need some advice on how to really make my designs better. Im missing something. If you can help me out that would be great. Thanks bro...

Awesome work, incredibly accurate overall. Only thing I don't like is the length of the main guns, just a bit too long, but that is just a matter of preferance. Love to see such detailed and accurate Mocs!

As I've stated on the other sites, this is definately one of the better built more accurate AT-ST's out there! I've built my fair share of 2-legged walkers, and getting them to balance is a SERIOUS challenge! Just remember, most of the sturdiness/flexibility/etc come from the ankles and the ANGLE of the legs and feet.

Quoting Louis K. And I remember how hard it was, when I built my AT-RCT, to get it accurate and standing on the skinny legs. However, you won that final XD
Thanks. And I still think you should've won. I disassembled the STAP the other day because it didn't fit in with my current style.

Amazing! This has to be one of the best Lego AT-STs. Whenever I saw a new rendition of one, there was always something, that bothered me, even on the very good ones. But the proportions of this one, the amount of detail and the accuratness are just perfect. And I remember how hard it was, when I built my AT-RCT, to get it accurate and standing on the skinny legs.

Brickdoctor, you just surpassed yourself. An absolutely lovely, lovely representation of the AT-ST. It's the best representative of this walker I've ever seen. Chapeau!

Simply amazing, not much else to say. This is just awesome. I forgot the hatch openned on the side, LEGO's versions are deceptive. Still just too amazing. I don't know what else to say.

You know, of all the things that are usually over-done, it's probably the AT-ST and similar things. But this one, bigger or smaller, is pretty tough to beat. Loads of detail and lots of SNOT. Just amazing.

Wow, great AT-ST! It looks very accurate and detailed.
