AT AT Pilot

Jobs in the Star Wars universe, probably suck Wampa testicles. If you’re working with the Empire, your career choices most likely hover between being a moving target in ABS armour and a choke-puppet for Darth Vader. But every now and then, a certain job opening appears.

A career that requires you to blast Rebels while piloting the most bitchin’ piece of hardware since the Jedi banned Gillette brand lightshavers. I am of course, talking about the mighty All-Terrain Armoured Transport. Or AT-AT for short. Just don’t let it get near any Snowspeeders.

Naturally, it took a special kind of Stormtrooper to handle an AT-AT. A Stormtrooper who wasn’t burdened with DL-44 blaster fire magnets. Hey, is it getting Hoth in here?

Most famously remembered from the Battle of Hoth, specially trained AT-AT drivers took control of the Empire’s massive All Terrain Armored Transport vehicles- or Imperial Walkers – in a devastating ground attack against the Rebels at Echo Base.

Suited for cold climate battle, the AT-AT driver comes fitted in a standard-issue uniform, featuring a streamlined helmet connected by pressurized hoses to a life support system, and glossy white armor over a pristine grey flight suit.

Interchangeable driving gauntlets feature a com-link and allow dexterity for handling AT-AT controls while positive gravity pressure boots keep him grounded in all situations.

Although typically found in the cockpit, Sideshow’s Exclusive Imperial AT-AT driver also comes armed with a vintage inspired rifle blaster – a nostalgic feature Star Wars collectors are sure to enjoy.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX?

The Imperial AT-AT Driver Sixth Scale Figure specially features:

  • Fully Articulated Body
  • Detailed Pilot Helmet and Armor
  • Imperial Flightsuit with Harness
  • Six (6) Interchangeable Hands Including
  • One (1) Pair of Fists

You can expect to pay $209.99 for this AT-AT pilot. Gigantic lumbering death-trap mecha-camel not included.
