This could be the greatest thread of all time.

What if??



Lines blurred?



Obi Wan was turned?



Boba was a lady?



Darth was good?





Muppets were plentiful?



The death star never forgotten?

Tony Taylor's Star Wars AT-ST Diorama via the ARC forums
While this is still a work in progress Tony has provided image updates showing his progress and it is looking very interesting from what he has shared so far in his topic in the ARC Sci-Fi forum titled "Knocked out and abandoned AT-ST Chicken Walkers 2 WIP

Not sure what scale the snap-kits are but with the modifications Tony has made to these models they certainly look convincing.

Nice work.

What is the manufacturer's warranty on these bad boys?  Wasn't there a recall on the "ankle joint"?  ;)
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

I don't quite understand the feature, strength, and weaknesses of the "Twin Ion Engine" propulsion usually associated with the "Dark Side" compared to the kind used by "the Good Guys".

But I couldn't help to wonder if it was, for example, the Rebel fighters that were built around the TIE drive......
Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?

Has to be the best movie franchise period.  Set the stage for everything else in my opinion.

Love the toons.  The Wall is particularly poignant.  As Austin Powers shows us, un-named evil henchmen are people too.

It appears that Tony has finished his Star Wars AT-ST Diorama

He has created a very nice and simple little vignette/diorama that works.

Sith don't surf? Sounds kinda cute, but , as everyone knows, isn't even remotely true:



And when they don't have a board with them (TIE cargo holds are notoriously small), well, there's always the local fauna. Sith mind tricks do that for you!
