Not just the slowest, but the Empire probably couldn't do anything with it on Hoth in the snow. Markus1984 built this alternate, steamy LEGO version of the AT-AT walker for a building competition and while it might be slow, those gatling guns in front look really badass.

The AT-AT always seemed, to me like the dumbest most pointless machine in the Star Wars galaxy. In a galaxy thats populated with high propulsion jet engines and war speed drives, why would they create and use this massive super slow super tall machine (probably ridiculously expensive too....have you noticed how much metal would likely go into just building it's ginormous legs??) that would literally take hours (but probably and more likely days or even weeks) to travel from one side of Hoth to the other?

As for this creation in the article? Freakin' awesome! I want it.
