With the release date for Rogue One rapidly approaching, mad YouTube engineer Colin Furze decided to celebrate in a unique way, by building a giant AT-AT (well, technically an AT-ACT) in his backyard.
Furze spent a month building the giant thing, modeled after the AT-ACT from Rogue One, which is the precursor of the more famous AT-AT from The Empire Strikes Back. He obtained an early release of the toy version and built his to be exactly the same, only bigger.
Check out Furze's build process:
The end result is a giant 20 foot tall AT-ACT. Furze's plan is to turn the interior of the AT-ACT into a playroom filled with all kinds of Star Wars-themed toys, games, and collectibles.
Furze built this AT-ACT as part of a campaign with eBay, which provided him with the building materials for his project. It also provided all of the stormtrooper helmets, figurines, and other collectibles that go on the inside.
When he was done building the AT-ACT, Furze gave it away to two lucky children, and their not-so-lucky parents who now have to have a giant AT-ACT in their yard forever.
Here's video of the finished build:
