Man, it isn’t easy being a geek with a girlfriend or wife sometimes. You know the story. You find something you love and you display it. You love it, but she hates it. That’s what happened with the gigantic AT-ST Walker that is for sale on eBay right now. Apparently, its owner’s girlfriend is sick of having it around.
The AT-ST’s owner, Martin Fillery says:
I think my girlfriend is starting to get a bit worried about me. I’ve always been a bit mad, and I love sci-fi stuff, but my spending on props is going through the roof… The Scout Walker is amazing, but I realised pretty quickly that it was just too big to use as on stage, so I’m selling it so I can get more toys.
The 16-foot-tall AT-ST Imperial Walker will cost you £9,800 (~$16,000 USD) – plus you’ll have to figure out how to ship it from the U.K.. You know this guy’s just going to get a bunch of other stuff she hates. This girl has a heart made of carbonite.
