    Build your own giant thing from Star Wars

    This guy wants to build a real sized Walker thingy from Star Wars - those big camel looking machines that shoot. It will apparently will be Ewok-proofed with anti-log technology.

    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    AT-AT (All Terrain Armoured Transport.) And despite the article's implying it, I doubt Lucasfilm will care unless he tries to make money off it. They're EXTREMELY tolerant of fan projects, provided you dont' sell them or only sell them for charity (I've done painted bulbs with licensed characters for charity auctions, with a lot of other craft projects with Star Wars properties on them in them as well, and not only do I know LFL doesn't care, an LFL employee bought most of mine. But that's because he's Steve and collects EVERYTHING. He'll probably try to buy this!)

    The AT-ATs didn't have an Ewok problem (as they weren't in the same movie), they had a snowspeeder problem-in that the speeders could trip them by wrapping the legs with cables. Which is only ONE issue with the entire concept (watching The Empire Strikes Back with an engineer parent kinda kills it at times) so I'll be interested to see if he can actually make one that WORKS in any way. It's really cool and intimidating looking, but I have to admit my dad is right, if you're not going to use antigravity technology availble in-universe...they never heard of tanks?

    And yes, I'm a terrible Star Wars nerd. Though I haven't quite forgiven them for Jar Jar.

    On the subject of Star Wars, I'm sure everyone here has seen this video, which seem to have gone viral.

    I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.
