Have you ever wondered just how fast the AT-ATs in Star Wars can walk? Well according to Wookiepedia, the answer is a nice round number – 60 km/h, or about 37.3 mph. However, that just seems like an arbitrary figure somebody made up.
It’s amazing when you think about how many Star Wars statues are around the world, some in the oddest places. Kyle Gilbert is one of the people responsible for bringing just a bit of that galaxy far, far away into our world.
I’ve always wanted one of those fancy liquor cabinets in my house. I’m not talking about the type that look like an old globe either. I want a really cool one. Perhaps something really original, like one that looks like an AT-AT Imperial Walker.
While the Imperial AT-AT Walker was designed as a war machine on legs, it really ended up being quite a flop due to its fatal design flaws. That said, AT-ATs do make pretty cute pets, if you housebreak them.
You know, for as big and badass as AT-ATs are, they’re kind of cute too. Perhaps that’s why we cheer when the snowspeeder takes one of these down with tow cables, we can’t help feeling a little sad when it falls.
We’ve seen all kinds of cosplay around here. we’ve also seen our share of AT-ATs, but we’ve never seen a horse cosplaying an Imperial walker. But when Imperials hit hard times, you gotta do what you gotta do.
We’ve seen our share of AT-AT beds around here and they are all very cool. This one is no exception. As Star Wars fans we have dreamed of sleeping in one of these bad boys, but most of them are just for rich kids or kids with really crafty parents.
I’ve often wondered what happened to the Imperial engineer who designed the AT-AT. I mean, as you build this massive walking battleship of death and come to find out on its first deployment, all it takes to destroy it is some rope.
You can choose from many crochet patterns in Etsy seller Krawka’s store, but what we are really interested in is an AT-AT, not some droid who speaks Bocce.
This AT-AT is probably the cutest crochet item of them all.
This sweater looks to me like something straight out of the ’80s, with teal, purple, and black colors that always remind me of Miami Vice. The AT-AT is white and walking along in what we assume is a winter wonder land of Hoth.
Your desk could use some tidying up. Why not organize your desk stuff while showing your love of Star Wars? Premium Bandai has the perfect desk organizer. The AT-AT Multi Stand is a workspace storage container that also happens to be a 1/72 scale Imperial walker model, measuring in at about 10.6″ tall.
We’ve seen our share of official and unofficial LEGO AT-AT builds, but Noah‘s 5,000 piece build is something special. This one is properly scaled for LEGO minifigs! How cool is that?
Noah also built a Hoth diorama to go with it, naturally.
…empire power! A couple of months ago we checked out a 3D printed and motorized AT-AT model. Kirby Downey also designed a 3D printable AT-AT, but his model doesn’t have the exterior on one side to showcase its interior.
Flickr user Nick Chen aka solscud made a cute collection of Star Wars minifigures wearing their respective vehicles. For instance, Kylo Ren has his command shuttle, Han Solo is wearing the Millennium Falcon and Rey is, well, in the Millennium Falcon, but with the new different radar dish.
Mechanical engineering student Daniel Olson helps the Empire rise again with his design for a miniature motorized AT-AT. You’ll need an electric motor and a 9V battery to make it move, but the rest of its parts are 3D printable, even the gears that connect the legs to the motor.
I’m sure we all have these random childhood memories of events that happened that weren’t particularly important or scary, but we still remember them with incredible clarity decades later. One of those random memories for me was going over to my cousin’s house back in the early ’80s and finding out he had just got one of those massive AT-AT walker toys as a gift.
