For the Star Wars fans, fanatic, collectors, or anyone who wants to scare the pants off of would be thieves, a giant AT-ST (All Terrain Scout Transport) is exactly what you need. What could be a ‘once in a lifetime’ offer on Ebay or just another replica from the series made by someone, the AT-ST in question is not going to be cheap. For the price of about $15,700 (£9,800) you could get yourself this larger than life (not the actual sized) object of memorabilia to replace your garden gnomes, pink Flamingos, or statues in your building lobby.
Made of wood and metal this 16 foot replica of the attack vehicle showcased in George Lucas’ epic Star Wars stories is about 12 feet shy of being life-sized. It can be collapsed to an extent for transport and won’t take more than you and a buddy to get it to where you want it. The large ‘head’ or command centre folds up into the legs with the help of a provided wench. Naturally nothing really works and this is pretty much a large replica with no lighting, movement or space to sit and pretend you’re an AT-ST Commander fighting Ewoks on Endor. That being said the details on this replica are quite realistic, so if nothing else, it would nevertheless be a fans dream come true yto have it in their backyard lawn. So what’s next an oversized AT-AT, or maybe even the Millennium Falcon? I’d buy that!
