"Sometimes, I'm jealous of people who are good at making things with their hands. I'm clumsy, uncoordinated, and could generously be characterized as indoorsy. I'll likely never be able to take a passion and turn it into a physical object, something to touch and pose with for pictures. But people like Kyle Gilbert can, and we're luckier for it.

Kyle, as reported on by StarWars.com, is the creator of an impressive fan creation— a 17-foot-tall replica of an AT-AT Walker (or, at least, half of one), mounted to a wall as a piece of menacing installation art in his church. Made over the course of four weeks out of household materials, the replica is impressively authentic, with a sort of pure simplicity to the colors and design. It reminds me a bit of how AT-ATs look on Star Wars Rebels, actually…."

+1 for Allen. The place looks like a movie theater.

That would have been a lot of fun to build. Glad someone gave him permission…

A church strikes me as an odd location, too. Would a church display a Roman war chariot?

I like the way it appears to have materialised in a wall!
