LEGO Star Wars AT-ST

LEGO + Star Wars = WIN!

LEGO AT-ST 1

I have a crapload of LEGO Star Wars vehicles. Next to the Millennium Falcon, this one is by far my favorite.

LEGO AT-ST 2

If you know anything about AT-STs, you'll know that one of the "cheek" turrets is a twin blaster cannon and the other is a concussion grenade launcher. That is something that the original vehicle did not try to replicate. I, being a professional Star Wars nerd by the age of 2, was always bugged by this and am always happy when other AT-ST toys make note of this subtle difference.

LEGO AT-ST 3

I haven't bought much Star Wars stuff lately, but I was glad to add this one to the collection.

I've only ever picked up a few of the bigger Star Wars Lego, mainly the ARC-170 and the various Tie's but that AT-ST is pretty sweet...

I am a fan of the Mini kits though *nods*

With my Transformers/Star Wars/GI Joe addiciton, I kind of have to limit what I can spend on other stuff, so I don't really go for the bigger stuff. I got a good deal on the ARC-170, and also a Turbo Tank, and I love both of those kits.

Sadly, I never paid attention to the mini-kits until it was too late, so I only picked up the Sith Infiltrator and AT-TE, both of which are pretty cool.

The new versions of LEGO Star Wars ships are all streamlined and rounded and stuff. They don't look as LEGO-y as the stuff I bought 10 years ago, so they don't look as cool. However, if you have a chance, check out the Imperial Dropship. It comes with three Stormtroopers and a Shadowtrooper (I guess it's available in the UK). I liked mine so much I bought a couple more.

I think i paid £29.99 for my ARC-170 but i never picked up the Turbo Tank because i refused to pay the £69.99 that most shops seemed to be asking for it at the time...

The Mini-Kits are pretty sweet, especially the Star Destroyer and the Millennium Falcon, plus the Mini AT-ST and AT-AT are just balls awesome...

I think once i get some more room i may have to delve deeper into Star Wars Lego and try to pick up some of the bigger kits that i missed the first time round...
