I recently acquired a MR AT-AT that is in need of some work. Picked up this beauty for a measly $150 and plan to dremel out the front guns to repair/replace them as well as finding the other little bits here and there to fix this guy up. I'll also be building a custom base for it but will need some advice as to the bolt size that is needed for the legs (I was unaware that it looks like the MR AT-AT had screws going into the feet). Can anyone tell me the colors/paints used on these guys? I'll be searching along as I go on for the parts to repair him, but wondering if it would be better to try to find casts of the parts, or actually use the donor parts to slap onto him...not exactly sure as I've read in several posts and forums that "studio scale" was a broad term for the AT-AT. Here are some shots to show the beast off as well as to show what work needs to be done...with the repair and replacement parts, I feel like a full "redo" will need to be done on the paint work as it seems weathering was lacking on the LE version compared to the signature.
I wished someone told me how heavy thing thing was too and how odd it was to carry one around...walked around San Jose and Berkeley the entire day with the thing and got nothing but odd stares, questions, and sometimes unwanted attention.
