Tim Goddard has built this microscale model of an AT-TE vehicle from Star Wars. This walker sports the colours and logo of the 501st battalion, famed for being under the commander of Anakin Skywalker in the films. Turret cannons at the front and back use wands, from the Harry Potter theme, to represent thin gun barrels. Running alongside the walker is an AT-RT, which has the surprising detail of a screwdriver portraying its blaster cannon. The model also has some great shaping with strong sharp angles, created by the application of triangular tiles.
While the time of galactic conflict known as the Clone Wars was just barely glimpsed in theaters between Star Wars Attack of the Clones, and Star Wars Revenge of the Sith, the Clone Wars animated series delved much more deeply into the many vehicles produced to meet the tactical and combative needs of a wide variety of troopers. One of my personal favorites would be the one-man version of the AT-ST, the AT-RT, or All Terrain Recon Transport. This model built by Luca s projects is very nicely detailed in true Minifig scale. There are so many great details, but if I had to pick one, it would be these curved wedges used for the feet.
It’s a good thing that clone troopers are genetically enhanced because there is no way an average Stormtrooper could pilot an AT-RT so smoothly over slippery rocks. This fun scene by Inthert combines a well-designed AT-RT, perfectly scaled for a minifig, with some nicely sculpted rock-work.
