    LEGO Mini AT-AT is where it's at.

    Just about anyone that remembers the original Star Wars trilogy, will probably say that Empire was the best film out of the three, and had the monumental and incredible Hoth battle scene as more than likely the main reason it is considered as such.

    Sure, there was great character development, the story was heading into amazing territory, but as a kid, I could never have imagined that these massive mechanical nightmares were masterfully stop motion animated by Phil Tippet and the crew at ILM. I always loved the Empire vehicles and the AT-AT is tied with the Speeder Bike for my favorite.

    This build was a lot of fun, as all LEGO ones of course usually are, but I got a kick out of seeing how the LEGO designers had chibi-fied this particular design. The head moves up and down, and the legs have some decent posability to them. As a collector, whose studio space has collectable/toy space as a premium, these smaller sets are quickly becoming something I enjoy, not only building, but displaying.
