How many of us, at some point or another, have actively fantasized about how cool it would be to own an Imperial AT-ST Scout walker? The answer should be "all of us". There's a chance to make that dream come (kind of) true, and it only costs $US15,698.62. Roughly.
The badass walker in question is a "life-sized" 4.9m replica/statue being sold by hollywoods-finest-stuff on eBay right now. But there are a few catches. First, it's in the UK (the price is actually £9800) and if you want it at your house you'll have to figure that out yourself. Second, a AT-ST isn't 4.9m tall; it's like 8.5m tall.
The thrilling description on eBay reads as follows:
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity! Never has one of these come up for sale EVER!! This is a completely one off, stunning hand made static display replica, built very sturdily from Metal and Wood. It has been fully weather proofed and can live outside! It even comes fitted to it's own trailer, which it easily removes from, as it is fitted to a metal frame stand so it doesn't have to be displayed on the trailer.
"Life-sized" or not, you have to admit it's pretty freaking righteous. But me? I think I'll keep saving up for a functional one. It's gotta happen sooner or later right? I'll even settle for a Snow Speeder! [eBay via Geekologie]
