Empire strikes back with Lego's help

'Motorized Walking AT-AT' is a force to be reckoned with.

The Lego Group, Lucasfilm

Now this is more like it. Forget about those Lego iPod docks . Toys should be toys--and armed vehicles, of course. The new "Motorized Walking AT-AT" just listed in the Lego catalog fills both requirements, as seen on Boing Boing. (That's "All-Terrain Armored Transport," for the Star Wars-challenged among you.)

This is no ordinary remote-controlled toy, but a multi-jointed beast with a moving head and rotating laser cannons that stands a foot tall. We're particularly fond of the dangling Luke Skywalker that's included, because his precarious position is something we can easily relate to.
