Another walker from my minifig-scale walker series, I hope you will enjoy it! The idea comes from wookiepedia to build my next bipedal walker.
About this creation
The AT-AR had heavier armor than the AT-ST, and was more suitable for frontline combat than lighter bipedal walkers. It was also faster than the scout walker. The AT-AR's "head" was situated closer to its legs, giving it a more hunchbacked look, and it was armed with a single, large blaster cannon.
Here is the sample:
The view out the cockpit was more extensive than on the AT-ST, and somewhat similar to the view from an AT-PT cockpit, especially notable in the forward heavy blaster cannon. One driver and one commander were seated side-by-side in the cockpit, while the elongated shape of the walker provided more room for cargo than the AT-ST models.[AT-ARs were shown as part of the military assets belonging to a garrison established on Tatooine, in the spaceport city of Mos Eisley in 0 BBY. Other garrisons also had AT-ARs in their arsenal, such as the ones on Jarnollen and Mandalore. In 3 ABY, AT-ARs were part of Blizzard Force and participated in the Battle of Hoth.
I made a small vignette (Yavin IV swamp) where AT-AR is supporting stromtroopers fighting with rebels.
Thanks for the review. Might I say that I'm glad someone is MOCing these more obscure craft? In any case, on to the commenting: I'm much happier with the scale of yours than of mine (which grew so large it became unposeable); The cockpit is well done; A bit more leg embellishments wouldn't be amiss; And the Yavin swamp could stand a bit of modification and more plant variety. Keep up the good work.
