A Star Wars superfan built his very own AT-ST – those mini-walkers seen on the forests of Endor in Return of the Jedi – in his backyard. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a build like this, but it’s by far the best.
The walker was spotted by a “Mr. Kernish” who noticed it in the distance when he was doing some work nearby. He took photos then followed up with video showing off the thing. The person who built it prefers not to be named, but it’s a surprisingly robust build, complete with moving turrets, sound effects and a remarkably detailed interior.
So, let’s put all of this into perspective. Apparently, some anonymous genius decided to build a stunning, life-size AT-ST in his backyard, and never planned to tell the Internet about it. He did it solely for his own amusement. Hard to believe in this day and age.
