UCS AT-AT gaining plenty of votes on LEGO Ideas

AT-ATThis amazing minifigure scale AT-AT is the work of Peter Brookdale!

The iconic Empire Strikes Back vehicle has been built using around 6,000 bricks and weighs 7.6kg!

Peter forwarded his plans to LEGO Ideas for consideration. If the project gains 10,000 votes it will be reviewed by LEGO’s team of set designers and marketing representatives to evaluate the project according to review criteria.

The build is gaining plenty of interest although the official comments from the LEGO team do not fill you with any confidence that the project will see the light of day! Here is what LEGO had to say – “While we welcome projects based on current licenses like Star Wars in the LEGO Review, please keep in mind that a project based on an existing LEGO license has a smaller chance of passing the LEGO Review than other projects.”
