Crush the Rebels with LEGO Star Wars AT-AT

"Use your harpoons and tow cables!" I'll never forget the memory of unboxing an AT-AT (All Terrain Armored Transport) toy one Christmas. The iconic Imperial Walker captured my childhood imagination in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and I'd entered a competition in Marvel UK's Star Wars Weekly without success.

This year, LEGO Star Wars fans (myself included) can build new holiday memories with LEGO AT-AT, the latest addition to the Ultimate Collector Series (UCS), when it goes on sale on 26th November.

This immense new LEGO model is massive in size and detail, paying homage to the gigantic vehicles in the film. It features 6,785 pieces, a movable head, spinning guns, adjustable legs, and side panels that open to reveal amazingly detailed interiors.

In addition, the set comes with nine minifigures and accessories, including Luke Skywalker (along with a wire so fans can recreate the famous scene of him swinging from an AT-AT’s underside in an attempt to thwart their attack), General Veers, two AT-AT drivers, a Snowtrooper Commander and four Snowtrooper minifigures, as well as two speeder bikes and an E-Web cannon set accessories — plus plenty of interactive elements and easter eggs! An amazing set for display or action, the set can also fit an army of Snowtrooper minifigures inside – 40 in total.

A must-have for any dedicated Star Wars fan, this model has been designed by legendary LEGO Design Master Henrik Andersen. Discussing the design, Andersen said, “The mega-sized LEGO Star Wars AT-AT set is the one everyone has been waiting for, and it’s been a thrill to bring this highly-anticipated build to life. The AT-AT was an engineering masterpiece and the LEGO set will make an impressive display. But we have also packed in plenty of details that will deliver hours of fun for fans of LEGO and Star Wars alike.”

To celebrate the release of the new LEGO Star Wars AT-AT set, selected LEGO stores in EMEA will be hosting exclusive midnight opening events, giving fans the opportunity to be the first to purchase the new set. Selected stores in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands and the Nordics will open their doors at 00:01 to 02:00 on the morning of Friday 26th November, allowing a limited number of fans to make their purchase. Fans will also receive a midnight opening special gift, plus they can browse the store and make other purchases.

The AT-AT is available from LEGO AU, UK and US (affiliate links).
