Always thought the Official AT-TE was good but missing some points among which, and most importantly, the legs which needed triple articulations in stead of only 2. Here is my attempt at getting a better model. Last bonus picture shows the custom AT-TE being droped by my custom LAAT/C
FACTS : An intimidating armored assault vehicle, the All Terrain Tactical Enforcer (AT-TE) saw its explosive debut on the battlefields of Geonosis, at the start of the Clone Wars. Specialized Republic drop ships carried the lumbering walker craft into the thick of combat, unleashing them to crawl inexorably toward enemy fortifications.
The walker features six articulated legs for propulsion. The legs are low to the ground, which reduces the walker's top speed but does provide it with increased stability. The body of the walker consists of two armored halves connected by a flexible sleeve that increases its mobility on the field.
The front of the walker is lined with four ball-turret laser cannons, while a single heavy projectile cannon is turret-mounted on the vehicle's dorsal surface. Its rear fire arc is protected by a pair of laser cannon turrets. Though the walker's armor can easily deflect small arms fire, tanksmasher rockets can pierce an AT-TE's armor and destroy its complex propulsion mechanisms.
Not to sound rude, but so you know, the mack is more troop space, not a bike compartment. The AT-TE holds 10 troops in the front & 10 in the back; then the crew is 1 piolot & 1 "spotter" in the cockpit; the gunner on top and then two gunners inside the front for the forward guns (one for the left 2 & one for the right 2) and the same for in the back. Then again, in retrospect, who could fit all that into a lego AT-TE of these deisgn proportions anyway?
This is a huge improvement from the original set.
Does the cockpit open at all? Because It looks like there are hinges near the back, right under the gun. That whole area looks really good, if you have more pictures, I'd like to see them.
I've also done my own AT-TE, I did it a little after Christmas, it's about the same scale as yours. Check it out and leave a review if you'd like.
