Strikingly strange stilt bot makes an impression

If you’ve ever witnessed a building contractor installing drywall, with those funny looking stilts, then you know why this long-legged robot by John Judy caught my eye. The builder has taken a more familiar sight, of a somewhat boxy bot in basic grey with no upper appendages, and turned it into a striking figure that I can’t decide whether to pat on the head like a friendly puppy, or run screaming for my life.

If the basic silhouette seems familiar to you, maybe that’s due to the fact that if you squint your eyes, it might bring to mind the profile of the AT-AT “chicken” walker from Star Wars, which John has also built with striking accuracy.

Open and closed, based off the Hoth At-St studio model.

    So the AT-ST’s were the chickens, and the AT-AT’s the turtles, or am I mixing up my Star Wars lore?…
