Steampunk AT-AT Walker

This custom made Steampunk AT-AT was painstakingly crafted by hand using 1980s models of the Star Wars walker.

The result is, as I hope you will agree, pretty amazing. Each one of those rivets was cut out with a punch and applied with tweezers, and we both lost track of the number of coats of spray paint he used to get that gorgeous patina before washing it down and creating the stains and drips. He made the narwhal horn on the front as well. It’s hard to see (this thing is a really weird shape and surprisingly awkward to photograph), but the legs and feet are covered in seaweed and barnacles – I can just imagine it tramping up and down the coastline, or standing in a harbour next to a crumbling pier.

Commissioned as a gift for the blogger at Badger and Owl, this “Mechano-Perambulator” probably wouldn’t fare to well in active battle, but the Jawa scavengers would have a field day.
