Ever want to look like you can operate an Imperial Walker? Now you can dress like an AT-AT driver, as seen in the famous Battle of Hoth from "The Empire Strikes Back," thanks to Anovos.

You don't need to rent an Imperial Walker to look like you can drive one. This AT-AT driver ensemble retails at the pre-order price of $1,200 (about £790 or AU$1,510). The final offering price after February 7 is $1,600 (roughly £1,050 or AU$2,015).

Pre-orders are available now for North American customers, with estimated shipping in August. Customers outside of North America can subscribe to the Anovos newsletter for updates on international sales.

This highly detailed, officially licensed suit features everything you'll need to serve the Empire, except for undergarments, socks and footwear.

The ensemble includes a 100 percent polyester gray jumpsuit with pockets and a zip-front; PVC plastic chest armor and a chest box with flexible hoses; a lower-leg harness connected to a back plate; back armor with a distinctive computer-board design; and faux leather gloves.

To ensure the authentic look of the armor, the hard pieces were 3D scanned and replicated from Lucasfilm costume and prop artifacts. The chest box features a functional LED screen mirroring the faux indicator functionality of the props seen on screen.

The helmet is finished with a lined interior and an adjustable helmet suspension rig, which means even the largest heads can wear it. Bubble lenses are also installed inside the helmet. Canisters on the end of the hoses feature magnetic points, which attach to the magnetic points at the helmet's back "mohawk" for easy maintenance.

Anovos is very serious about getting its costumes perfect, recommending that before ordering customers have their measurements taken by a professional tailor. You can refer to this sizing and measurement guide to figure out the correct measurements.

The costume company launched its pricey line of high-end "Star Wars" replica costumes in April last year, with Luke Skywalker's Bespin uniform and Darth Vader's intimidating garb, as well as Han Solo's signature outfit. More recently, Anovos added both the TIE Fighter pilot, Imperial Officer suits and Snowtrooper costumes for fans and cosplayers alike.
