The huge new 6,785-piece Lego Star Wars AT-AT Construction Set makes for an impressive addition to any Star Wars Lego collection.
The Lego Group has unveiled its new Lego Star Wars AT-AT set, the latest launch in the Ultimate Collector Series set (UCS) line-up for fans of Lego Star Wars.
This new Lego model of the gigantic vehicle, used at the Battle of Hoth in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, is impressive both in scale and detail. It features 6,785 pieces, a movable head, spinning guns, adjustable legs and side panels that open to reveal detailed interiors.
In addition, the set comes with nine minifigures and accessories, including Luke Skywalker – along with a wire so fans can recreate the scene of him swinging from an AT-AT’s underside in an attempt to thwart the Empire’s attack – General Veers, two AT-AT drivers, a Snowtrooper Commander and four Snowtrooper minifigures, as well as two speeder bikes and an E-Web cannon set of accessories, plus plenty of interactive elements and Easter eggs. Ideal for display or action, the set can also fit an army of Snowtrooper minifigures inside – 40 in total.
The unboxing also offers a rewarding experience, as the packaging displays beautiful imagery of the final set from all angles. All the pieces are stored in four internal boxes, which combined depict the famous Battle of Hoth scene.
The model has been designed by legendary Lego design master Henrik Andersen, who commented: “The mega-sized Lego Star Wars AT-AT set is the one everyone has been waiting for, and it’s been a thrill to bring this highly-anticipated build to life. The AT-AT was an engineering masterpiece and the Lego set will make an impressive display. We have also packed in plenty of details that will deliver hours of fun for fans of Lego and Star Wars alike.”
The set forms part of the Ultimate Collector Series, which also includes the Lego Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon set, Lego Star Wars UCS A-wing set and the recently released Lego Star Wars UCS Republic Gunship set.
