AT-AT Wire Sculpture: Get Bent on Hoth
May 9th, 2012
The AT-AT Imperial Walker is one of the most iconic machines in the history of motion pictures, so whenever I spy some object made in the form of the classic robot camel from The Empire Strikes Back, it piques my curiosity. I’m especially happy to have stumbled onto this AT-AT interpretation, done up using carefully bent wire.
Artist Jakobi created this AT-AT sculpture by meticulously bending lengths of galvanized steel and stainless steel wire. He says it’s one of the more complex wire sculptures he’s ever created, and it definitely looks like it was challenging to get the shapes just right.
The sculpture measures about 12″ long by 10″ tall by 4.5″ wide, and would look great in an Star Wars collection. You can find it over on Etsy for $120 (USD). He’s also got a little AT-ST sculpture available for $70 if you prefer your walkers with two legs.
While you’re there, be sure to check out Jakobi’s other cool wire sculptures and paintings, and if you’re looking for other AT-AT stuff, be sure to check out the Imperial Walker cake and the AT-AT PC Casemod.
