    He says studio scale. Now, then your question leads to another one of those debates about the true size of an AT-AT. That's never pretty.

    People use the word "epic" all the time to describe the most mundane things. Knowing Julien as well as I do, and knowing how much he loves this subject, my prediction is that this build is going to set the bar for "epic" studio scale projects very, very high indeed.

    Go Julien!

    Wow cool, I´m really looking forward to seeing how you´ll tackle the metal armature. Working out the mechanics of this thing must be an insane amount of work!

    So is this going to be a stop motion armature? Because if it didn't have articulation I would wonder what the point of making it was – by that I mean the master replicas version is out there already?

    Or maybe he likes building and wants his own

    Even if this were to be static, you really think the MR is a model worthy of being called a studio filming replica?
    Its an armchair fans ornament, constisting of.....no original donor parts, just mock ups cast in "glorious" polystone.
    Trust me, i know Julien has this one nailed in his head, this, as Kevin stated, will be the ultimate Imperial walker.

    I'd say the journey getting there is most of the fun in these builds. Getting to go through the process from the ground up is a lot of the thrill. In fact, as models go, I'd say building them is most of what I get pleasure from instead of the final product sitting there collecting dust.

    But as far as my needs and abilities go, the MR version is about as close as I'll get and I'm extremely happy with the one I have. But wouldn't it be great to have that studio scale model actually be a prop and not static?!

    Can't wait to see where you're going with this Julien. You really are the guy to make this happen!

    Julien, what size dish is that? I was thinking VHD-200 but it seems a bit larger. And let me know if you still need help cutting some shapes out.

    Thank you guys,

    Yeah I prefer to build my own, it wont be peferct either but it'll be mine ! :)

    I hope I'll have a metal armature for this (these) one(s) ! =)

    As Lee and Kevin said, it's one of my fav, I've started working on it on and off in 2006... then 6 heads later comes this one ! :)

    Bwwaaaaa--waaaa---waaaaahhhh!!! :cry

    I HATE all of you, for encouraging Julien to do anything else, to take his valuable time away from working on his 8-ft Star Destroyer!!
    Bwwwaaaa--waaaa---waaaaahhhh!! :cry
    If anybody wants me... I'll be in my room! Crying into my pillow!! Waaaahhh!!! :cry

    Seriously, Julien... I know that with your attention-to-detail, you'll end up with a studio-scale AT-AT that makes the Master Replicas' effort look like the old Kenner AT-AT! :cool
    ....just try to finish this 'little' project in record time... so you can get back to the 8' ISD !! ;)

    Cheers,

    Oh, I see. I thought there was one predominantly-sized model used, and totally didn't think about the other models used. But now I see your point.
