LEGO Star Wars designer Henrik Andersen is helming the latest designer video from the LEGO Group, focusing on the most recent release for the theme – 75313 AT-AT. It also demonstrates the preferred method of handling the huge walker by cradling it with your hand between the legs.
“The biggest challenge with this set was the sheer scale of it and the weight of it,” explained Henrik Andersen. “So I teamed up with a LEGO Technic designer and we came up with a solution for making the legs moveable and also so stable that they can take the weight of the model.”
LEGO Star Wars 75313 AT-AT is available now in the UK and Europe, but those of you in the US will have to wait until after the holidays for a restock of the model after it sold out shortly after release. We’ve made a video answering your questions about the new AT-AT, including how many minifigures it can fit without worrying about the seats.
