So, my father is a bit of an artist but also a massive geek; he found a battered AT-AT at a car boot sale. He repaired/bodged a few parts to get it looking right again and then painted it. It does look the part of a graffitied war tank! But he said it's too large (H 60cm - L 71cm) and he has no where to keep it... I'm an apprentice space satellite Engineer and said I'd take it so to fill the inner compartments with a few electrical boards so to get it functional for some of my projects... Because why not? Who doesn't want an AT-AT filled with electrical goodies running dodgy programs passively scanning for RF signals and such?

I'm pretty sure it used to have either a remote controller for movement, or a means of moving the limbs via button (possibly on a missing panel that was replaced by a fabricated part) and I was wondering if anyone can help Identify the model so I could decide whether or not to have this as a static case for projects or if I can focus on using it for wireless projects and build a new controller for it.

I would take it apart myself to find out but I don't want to risk chipping, or plain braking parts in the process if I can help it...

So if anyone has any clues that would be great! e3ed2b0d-030e-4e6d-b446-a067f770b7a6.jpg5b3cf4aa-ed5d-4e2c-9705-b62da05a56e0.jpg5d54ebf5-09e2-4196-a449-5202f4410522.jpg0d580d02-c428-413b-832f-7c825b6dfdc7.jpg

You've got the Vintage Collection AT-AT first released in 2010:-

Hard to say if you've got the Empire one or the reissued Jedi one from a few years later:-

The only difference is the paint job but as yours has a great bespoke paint job its hard to say;)

Thanks for the help, it's good to know what I'm working with ^_^

Will keep my projects static for now, but if anyone at the lab wants a crack at motorizing the legs I may upgrade the circuit boards I'm planning to add in to work wirelessly with a battery pack.

Looks cool. The legs on these were never motorized. The AT-ACT from Rogue One was the only motorized Walker of this scale.
