The All Terrain Armored Transport (AT-AT) is best known for making its debut in Empire Strikes Back, with the hulking, four-legged walker thundering across the icy Hoth plains, ready to attach Echo Base, the Rebel’s hidden outpost on the icy planet.
Nothing like it had ever been seen before, and the Galactic Empire’s ground forces used the AT-AT’s gigantic size to overpower the Rebellion and ultimately destroy Echo Base.
Once considered an “impossible” UCS set due to the walker’s awkwardly long legs, and heavy body which would cause all sorts of stability issues, legendary LEGO Design Master Henrik Andersen (seriously, look at his Bricklist) teamed up with LEGO Star Wars Design Director Jens Kronvold Frederiksen to bring the UCS AT-AT to life.
“the mega-sized LEGO Star Wars AT-AT set is the one everyone has been waiting for, and it’s been a thrill to bring this highly-anticipated build to life. The AT-AT was an engineering masterpiece and the LEGO set will make an impressive display. But we have also packed in plenty of details that will deliver hours of fun for fans of LEGO and Star Wars alike”
Minifigures are seldom the focal points of a Star Wars UCS set, but as the AT-AT is a walker, and is used to transport an absolute ton of Snowtroopers, the set comes with 9 minifigures: two AT-AT drivers, General Veers, Luke Skywalker, a Snowtrooper Commander and four Snowtrooper minifigures.
The side panels open up, to reveal a cavernous (and very playable) interior, which can also fit an army of 40 Snowtroopers inside!
The AT-AT is a marvel of LEGO engineering, and in case you’re wondering how the long narrow legs manage to not buckle – the designer, Henrik Andersen devised a really ingenious solution – using Technic turntables and worm gears in the leg joints, which are spun using a screwdriver-like adjustment tool which secures the model in place.
The AT-AT also features an array of cool features, such as a movable head and spinning guns, making this a really fun UCS set to display, and pose.
And last but not least, Luke Skywalker can also swing from the wire attached to the belly, as he tries to scale the hulking walker.
The UCS AT-AT is an outstanding display piece, and truly, a triumph of design and engineering, and for LEGO Star Wars fans that have been waiting years for a UCS-treatment of one of the most iconic Star Wars vehicle – it will absolutely not disappoint, and is well worth the pricetag.
Unfortunately, I had some postal issues with my review copy, and it literally only arrived a day ago, and I’m still putting it together (about 5 hours in so far, and loving every moment), so keep an eye out for my full review soon!
But in the meantime, check out my unboxing and first impressions of the UCS AT-AT!
