...no

I do not recall seeing an AT-AT. There has been a landcrawler and landspeeder several times (one year there was a landspeeder race)

There was one a few years ago, but it's legs got all tangled up in some guy-wire.
It fell over on it's right side....and then it exploded. 8)

Make it yours. If it's really cool and awesome and done with complete conviction we won't care if it's derivative.

In 1998, my friend saw a Stormtrooper being stopped by a county sherriff, to check if his Blaster was real or not..
You gonna try and build one? That would be fucking awesome! A fortune on hydraulics though..

Good point. Better to just breed your own.

This is the closest thing I think. "The Beast." It was so unreal, and huge and heavy, it literally made the ground shake when it stomped by.

Why drag all that lumber out to the desert if you're only going to burn it?

It looks like the Kernul at Apokiliptika beat you to it.
They seem to "know people" at ILM.
They were uh "loaned" that fearsome dude back in '06. :shock:
