Imperial AT-ST Walker
This is the Imperial AT-ST Walker from Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi. I have worked long and hard to make it as perfect as possible.
About this creation
Where is it from?
The AT-ST, in case you didn't know, was that smaller walker strutting around amongst the legs of its larger brothers during the Battle of Hoth. In the Return of the Jedi, you got a better view of the AT-ST as Chewbacca, Han, Leia, the Rebels, and the stupid Ewoks had to battle them in the jungles of Endor.

Details on the LEGO:
I have tried so, so many times to make the perfect AT-ST. Many people on the internet have done the same. Often have I argued with these other builders about what the right size should be, etc., but to no avail. If you can successfully change someone's mind once they have it set on a certain thing, you're a miracle worker. At any rate, I'm going to show you the evolution of my AT-ST from one of the first Star Wars models I ever built to what I think is the finest LEGO AT-ST on the planet Earth.

   There it is, my first ever AT-ST model. How junky can you get, right? The only thing junkier than that is the official LEGO set! Well, at the time I thought it was really cool and I was very proud of myself for using those spring things on the legs. You can tell by its boxy head, matching guns, white duck feet, spindly legs, and lack of detail that it is a TERRIBLE MODEL! The only thing I ever did right on the model was the eye-flaps. I think I was the first person online to ever use those pieces for eye-flaps.

   The second rendition is far improved over the first, but still has the same general look. The feet are fixed and more detail is added to the head, but it is still boxy and spindly-legged. Of course, the AT-ST in the movie WAS a little spindly-legged, wasn't it? That's how it acquired the nickname "Chicken Walker".

   I thought when I built this third AT-ST that I had finally made it perfect. As you can see, the legs are far more correctly shaped, more detail has been added to the torso, and the guns are finally fixed so that there are two blasters on one side of the head and a grenade launcher on the other, like in the movie. Also, this was the first model I built after the LEGO company released its own sorry, lousy, stinky, pathetic excuse for an AT-ST as an official set. I used some of the parts they provided on my model above. Did I mention that I absolutely hated that tiny little runty excuse for an AT-ST that the LEGO company slopped together? Well, guess what? Some people actually LIKED it. They said it was the RIGHT SIZE! Isn't that LAUGHABLE?! Well, here's something that will really make you laugh: I AGREED WITH THEM! Purely out of peer pressure, I agreed with them. But I still thought LEGO's model was sorry, even if it was closer to the right size... which it wasn't. So I made my fourth rendition.



Enlarge image
   Ah, look at the despicable little runt. The AT-ST is definitely supposed to be taller than THAT! However, anyone who thought that LEGO's AT-ST model was the right size could not help but love my far, far more realistic model, right? It could even fit two people, side-by-side in the head, as opposed to LEGO's single pilot. But did the critics like this tiny little dwarf? Nope. I got only a lukewarm response, especially after another builder posted his own new AT-ST. They loved his so much that they called it "perfect." I went and looked at this AT-ST, and guess what? It was twice the size of the official LEGO set that they had just said was the proper scale!!! I had to admit the guy's technique of making the head was very good, and I loved his model. It was great, but I was determined to be the best. I had tried for soooo long. I was not about to give up now. So I went around the internet, collecting images of the greatest AT-STs out there, and looking at their techniques. Finally, after lots of building and frustration, I made my ultimate AT-ST.

   Now, I don't know what you think, but I look at her and know that she is perfect. Sure, I have complaints about her. There are always a few problems with everything... but this is as close as anyone can ever come to making a perfect Imperial All-Terrain Scout Transport out of LEGO. So I posted my ultimate model online. People said I was either a loser trying too hard at what I was not good at or I was a rip-off stealing other people's ideas. Only a few people saw my AT-ST for what it was... outstandingly fantastic. These beings of respectable intelligence even asked for special pictures of my model somewhat disassembled, which are posted below... But enough of my sad story. Here are some final images and details of the greatest AT-ST ever. (in my humble opinion)

   Here is the inside of the cockpit. It's not a jumble of controls like some of the others online. As you can see, it will comfortably seat two people side by side.

   Here is the head all taken apart. Looks like a strange little ship on its own, doesn't it?



Enlarge image
   Have you ever seen debris scatter itself so neatly?



Enlarge image
   you can see the pilots looking at you through the eye-flaps.



Enlarge image
   Hey, who let the Scout Troopers get in there?



Enlarge image
   Watch for flying rocks and logs, scout trooper.



Enlarge image
   I wanted to add ANOTHER joint to the legs so that they could splay outwards like in the movies when the Ewoks trip them up with logs, but it was just impossible.

   My AT-ST strikes a strange pose for the camera.

   Here it is with closed eye-flaps.

   I also made a red version for Galactic Battlegrounds, but I decided not to post it here.

In reply to Vorgain Karth: James Wadsworth? Oh, you mean Jamit! Well, his is good, but it's way too big to be minifig scale, IMO. And the guy reviewing my models using my name isn't me. It's just some annoying spammer trying to make me look like a pompous jerk. :-\

In reply to George Lucas: I'm sure you wish everyone would keep their opinions to themselves. Then you could make more money. Like you need anymore. Sorry, but I've lost all respect for you, George. Even though you're not really him, of course.

The head is a bit tall, but considering the number of kits out there it is nice to see one completely custom.

I'd really like to see a sixth verison from you. This has been around for at least half a decade, hasn't it? Perhaps some modifications to the head and some more detail throughout.

I think it is very well done. A great MOC is rarely achieved in one shot or over night. I, for one, can appreciate your dedication to fine tuning. I did the same thing for my minifig scale snowspeeder.

Great job, Justin! There are a veryy few things I have against it, mainly that the legs could use a little 'beefing up' and on my nearly identical(I copied yours:-) model, the legs fold up under it as it crashes to the ground. Dunno, yours seems to work, though. Keep 'em comin'! ------Michael----------P.S.You really creamed LEGO's pitiful excuse of a sorry AT-ST! heh, heh.

This is the best AT-ST model I've ever seen. The new official model is too small.

Amazing! Perfect scale and detail! By the way, have you noticed how the new official 07 model looks oddly like yours?

The legs are alright, but the real problem is the "face". I think it's abit too long. Hawever you did a great job on the guns, they are very accurate.

Holy cow, this thing is gooooooood! The only problem is that you need to try and make a new design for the main guns, instead of using the "classics."

Good I thought it was best until I saw James Wadsworth's one. His is the best on the web you should check it out. (Edit 3-02-06)Why the heck do you keep reviewing your own models? I've seen you review them on about 3 or 4 models. (Edit 3-04-06) All right thats cleared up about you reviewing your own creations. Yes Jamit's AT-ST is quite big now that I look at it again compared to a screenshot.

WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!!! Amazing. Perfect. And two people can pilot it now like in the movie! LEGO has an awful version of it. By looking at their site, it looks like they will be coming out with a new one soon. But, it will not look the same as yours. I have noticed now that LEGO is improving all of their old LEGO sets. Maybe they should take a hint to use your AT-ST design!!!

Lee is crazy. The head is the perfect shape and I especially like the way the head slants downward like in the movies. Mine doesn't do that. You should check it out at http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/4478. Over all this is awesome!!!! Awesome job Justin and keep up the good work!!

This is perfect... are you braindead, the guns are probably the closest to the scale as you can get if you are not customizing pieces.
  March 17, 2004
it looks weird. the guns are WAY to big, and you need to spend some more time on the head and the legs.

excellent model, but do i detect some brewing hostility? do we have the next anakin on our hands right before he wipes out a tusken raider enclave?
