Sure, there was great character development, the story was heading into amazing territory, but as a kid, I could never have imagined that these massive mechanical nightmares were masterfully stop motion animated by Phil Tippet and the crew at ILM. I always loved the Empire vehicles and the AT-AT is tied with the Speeder Bike for my favorite.
This build was a lot of fun, as all LEGO ones of course usually are, but I got a kick out of seeing how the LEGO designers had chibi-fied this particular design. The head moves up and down, and the legs have some decent posability to them. As a collector, whose studio space has collectable/toy space as a premium, these smaller sets are quickly becoming something I enjoy, not only building, but displaying.
