Star Wars fans come up with some of the most unique and creative designs out there. From videos such as the ‘Darth Maul: Apprentice’ one to a mini-flying speeder bike, these dedicated fans have shown us how passionate they are creating things from the Star Wars property.
With Rogue One less than a week away from release, another fan has released something extraordinary.
Famous Youtuber ColinFurze has come up with yet another incredible project. The man behind the infamous Wolverine claws and his Assassin’s Creed hidden blade and rope launcher has crafted something Star Wars related this time around. More specifically, Colin and his team created an actual fully-working AT-ACT from the Star Wars Rogue One film. The AT-ACT (All Terrain-Armored Cargo Transport) is a watered down version of the one used on the Battle of Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back. Basically, he manufactured a close to an exact replica of the enormous Imperial Walker. Watch the video below and prepare to be amazed:
What Kind Of Features Does This Walker Include?
You would think that building a massive machine such as this one would be just enough, but Furze goes the extra mile. Not only has he built the Walker from the ground up, but he also left plenty of room to showcase tons of stuff inside the Walker itself. As the video shows, the Walker has a hydraulic step ladder that comes down to allow those who want to take a look inside. Once inside, there’s a whole host of memorabilia (sponsored by eBay) that would make any Star Wars fan go crazy. There’s lightsabers, Stormtrooper helmets, Star Wars figurines, and LED lights. The list goes on and on.
But my favorite part of this video is the frontal features of the AT-ACT. Furze could have just left the front alone, but instead designed the cockpit to move its head back and forth. With a flick of a button, the laser canons on the side of its head also move up and down. That is pure fan dedication.
This Is Fan Dedication At Its Finest
This project just goes to show, that nearly anything and I mean anything can be done when you put your mind to it. It must have taken him months to complete this thing, but he finished anyway and with tremendous results. Fandom can go a long way, but this is certainly a different type of ball game. The amount of work involved was undeniably difficult to achieve. But Furze and his team managed to make it work and were nice enough to show it to the world via social media.
I am completely blown away at some of the things die-hard fans are able to come up with. It seems like every so often, someone else comes up with another astounding idea whether it’s from Star Wars or another property such as Marvel. There are many creative minds out there who are dying to make the next best thing. My advice to you is to keep doing what your doing. This video should give any fan some inspiration on what to do next. Furze was nice enough to also include an 11 minute video on how he constructed his AT-ACT from start to finish. You can also check that video out down below:
