Once again my family has proven to be the best there is: for my birthday I got the 8129 AT-AT Walker. It's my first official AT-AT set and I have to say that the overall impression is great with some minor flaws. I made I try to remedy these, hope you'll like the result...
About this creation
What bothered me the most was the cockpit: It had several gaps and could fit only one driver. I decided to totally rebuild it. The following pictures show how it turned out. I also added pictures of the original cockpit for reference.
Some interior shots. I managed to cram in two drivers and an Imperial commander. Rather crowded...
"Who had chili for lunch...?"
The other thing which I rebuilt was the P-tower. I think it was a nice touch to throw one into the set, but it's not very accurate to the one seen in the movie. This is my version of it.
Final shot with the original P-tower.
Thanks for watching...
Finally one big apology: I haven't attended the Pages for the whole summer for various reasons, the main being the lack of time and inspiration for building. I promise I'll do my best to catch up watching and commenting on your fantastic MOCs!
Wow, very impressive! I bought this set yesterday and it will be shipped to my house in about 5 days... Are you planning to make a Battle of Hoth? It looks you have plenty of accessories, bricks and minifigs to make it to me... Well. thank you for sharing this MOC!
Your redesigned head is far superior to the original. It actually looks much more like the one in the film. Ain't chili a killer in a confined space? They should try firing that at the Rebels instead. Maybe then the Empire would of won the war!
Awesome modifications, I haven't been MOCing for a while because of lack of inspiration and stuff also. Then again, I often don't post MOCs for ages. Your improved AT-AT head looks a lot better than the original, and that chili joke....:P
