[Star Wars] AT-RT

Postby AlternativeRadio » Thu Mar 05, 2009 6:50 pm

I wanted to build a better AT-RT than the one LEGO made a few years ago, but I also wanted it to fit into the Clone Wars TV series. I tried to make it a little more cartoony (largre body and feet, shorter legs, etc) while still looking decent.

Very nice! Not especially detailed, but I like it! Sizing with a minifig is far superior to the official Lego attempt. Nice physical design, too. Love the head. Great job!

Pretty neat job. You succeeded in the cartoony look, and although I'm not a fan of LEGO used upside-down, the feet look nice and fairly accurate. The size is pretty good, too large still but indeed much better than that of LEGO.

Now, the constructive criticism.
I think you overdid the cartoonish look a bit; the lower part of the nose is way too long. It should be shortened with 1-3 studs in my opinion. The oversized cannon shouldn't stick out that much from the nose, either, it would look more solid if closer. In addition, the thighs are - from this angle, at least - too short, making the pose look a bit awkward. Making the a tad longer would improve the overall look, not impairing the cartoonishness.
The few studs visible look lonely, too, so I'd suggest replacing them with some SNOT. Apart from the ones on the nose, perhaps, for they might even fit as nose detailing. You could also diminish the number of colours. Those black pieces aren't most likely replaceable, but you could do away with either red or green, leaving only one. The amount of that colour might also be increased, for now the colour patches look slightly lonely.

For the most part, this a great MOC, I especiallly like the feet and legs. However, as galagoo righly points out, the front is just a bit too big. Trim it down a bit, and put the gun higher, and then it will rock.

Studs Not On Top. Galagoo, the black pieces could be replaced by grey ones, but unfortunately, I don't own any. The short thighs were actually longer at first, but it couldn't stand up straight, so I had to adjust. I'll try to lengthen it though.

I must say you have fallen onto the same track as LEGO had when they made this. It looks like it shoul but is to BIG. I do know that nothing in lego is to-scale with the minfigs but its can be done. Anyway I like it and good work on the feet.
