This is a LEGO model of the Imperial AT-PT walker of Expanded Universe fame.
About this creation
Where is it from?
The AT-PT (All-Terrain Personal Transport) is an EU (Expanded Universe, which means it was not shown in the movies) vehicle that has been in several books and video games. The games that contain it include Rogue Squadron, Force Commander, and Galactic Battlegrounds. The AT-PT is an old civilian walker that the Empire has upgraded with weaponry for use in patrol duties. It is less powerful than the larger AT-ST, but is more stable and presents a smaller target from the air.
Details on the LEGO:
My LEGO AT-PT is, I think, one of my finest works. It is just about a perfect model of an Imperial All-Terrain Personal Transport. It can comfortably seat a single pilot and can stand in a variety of positions. The guns can point up and down and the hatch can open for easy access. By the way, the grey minifig legs poking out of the bottom of the craft represent some sort of targeting device that is on the AT-PT, which is shaped like a pair of minifig legs. It can be seen in the Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels (I own the first edition of the book, not the new one with the Prequel crap in it).
Great Job!!! This Thing is awesome! I know what it is supposed to look like, so I recognized it right away. The stripe pattern on the lower leg and the color of the window make it very authentic. However, there's just one thing: I'd add a little more dark grey to the cabin to balance it out a little. Supreme!!!
