AT project *updates*

Post by Iceman792 on Sat Jan 30, 2010 4:45 am

Ok, Iíve done some work on planning this thing out and I have some updates Iíd like to run by everybody. First of all Iíve figured out how to make it walk by remote control! The basic idea behind it is that every other leg on a zigzag on the chaises will be controlled by a different power function motor. Iíve included a picture of a scale model Iíve come up with on LDD minus the rubber bands needed. The legs most likely will be along the lines of the legs off the motorized AT-AT only stumpier and with clone wars era AT vehicle styling.
Second update, Iím thinking of incorporating a pneumatics lowered platform to house AT-RTs similar to the one featured on the AT-TE on the clone wars episode Liberty on Riloth. I will probably use Geoff Herndonís template for the AT-RTs.
Thirdly Iíve decided on a massive ion cannon to be featured on the back, but Iím going to attempt to light it up with Life lites through the power function motor.
Lastly Iíve been tossing around ideas for the interior and have decided to devote the space not used for the pneumatic lift to be used as a logistics control panel using greebeling similar to Lego revolutionís ďthe reward will be substantialĒ. If I can spring it might also feature some Life lite control panel flickering.
I would greatly appreciate any suggestions on design color scheme etc. and or reference pics.

I voted for the last one, though some sort of small turret should be in there.

I personally think that there should be an ion cannon there, considering the size of the vehicle and the speed that it will be able to move. Wink

A landing pad on a walker? Nice idea, but the only ship that can possibly use it would be a V-wing. A gigantic gun would seem better. But that is my opinion and your walker. Wink

Thank you all for your quite adamant debates regarding the apparatus. I think a small turret is a little disproportionate in such an application; this was my reason for not including it in the poll. Secondly the landing pad did have V-wings in mind. Iím kind of on the fence about the back apparatus since the tie-breaking vote on the poll was mine, please submit a few more votes in one direction to help me make up my mind, oh and enjoy the updates. Smile!

Yeah, but remember that the rubber bands are not included in the picture. They are intrical to the design. As for their layout, I dare not try to explain it in words; it's a miracle I figured it out my self. Smile
