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.
A giant tall imperial walker playhouse is every kid’s dream. Well, Colin Furze is making dreams come true, because he built one in his backyard for his kids.
This 18 foot-tall walker was built to scale using an AT-ACT toy from Rogue One for reference.
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.
The sweater is made from acrylic, so it probably itches like crazy.
There aren’t many more iconic creations from the Star Wars universe than the AT-AT Imperial walkers from The Empire Strikes Back. Sure, they ended up having an Achilles’ heel (or four of them), but I’d like to see you design a walking weapon that can’t be tripped.
We’ve seen some impressive Star Wars cakes, but this AT-AT takes the proverbial cake. This thing looks amazing and the details are super nice – so nice that it doesn’t even look like a cake. It was made by Cake Central member ChrisTheCook for a friend’s wedding and it stands at over two feet-tall.
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 was just watching that Family Guy episode where they referred to Imperial Walkers as “robot camels,” and they are so right. Not that it makes AT-ATs any less cool – especially when the AT-AT in question is actually a computer.
This AT-AT Cake was made by a loving mom for a four year old girl named Gabriel, and the outcome of all of this motherly love is an intergalactic win. The death machine we refer to as the Imperial Walker is stomping between what appears to be two giant snowballs, but they could also be the dome homes of Hoth citizens to cowardly to face their doom with rifles in their hands.
In 2011, Volkswagen had the best Super Bowl commercial, featuring a diminutive Darth Vader. This year’s commercial was fun, but it didn’t have the Star Wars tie-in as its main theme. Maybe this what Volkswagen should have done for their 2012 Superbowl commercial instead.
I am not a coffee drinker, but I have been into Starbucks on more than a few occasions with my wife. The drinks and sweets that place sells are so overpriced it’s not even funny. But regardless of how I feel about Starbucks, I really like this thing – it’s Lord Vader’s personal Starbucks.
What would it be like if an Imperial AT-AT Walker turned up in a major US city? That’s what artist Tony Bamber asked himself before creating this awe-inspiring digital vista of an AT-AT about to stomp on Chicago’s Loop “L” train, before heading North to cross the Chicago River.
Angus MacLane created this cute little AT-AT for a contest on LEGO Star Wars enthusiast-site From Bricks to Bothans. It was part of a ‘Chibi‘ contest, meaning that the LEGO sculptures had to be shrunk to look like smaller, cuter versions of themselves.
We’ve just started to see some powered exoskeletons, and they are still pretty clunky affairs. So how can we even think about starting to build a real AT-AT? That doesn’t seem to faze the Mike Koehler, the man behind AT-AT for America – a campaign to build a fully-functional full-size AT-AT.
I know that making AT-ATs out of snow has been one way of using up some of the massive snowfall that’s been plaguing the U.S. this season, but I have to say that this one from Norway actually looks pretty awesome too.
The Empire’s Imperial Walkers were always awesome, there’s no denying it. Thankfully, I’m not the only one who thinks so. But designer Steven Anderson has come up with a few different designs to make them look a bit cooler as they stomp.
