AT-AT Made From Recycled Computer Parts: Blue Screen of Hoth - only $450.00


This awesome-looking AT-AT was created by Sage Werbock. He is an expert welder and blacksmith. Sage put this AT-AT together using scrap parts salvaged from old computers and some sheet metal. I have to say that the result looks pretty impressive.

The main body is made out of power supply boxes. The head comes from floppy drive housings, and the legs and feet come from various pieces of scrap metal. A lot of love went into this sculpture. The whole thing was randomly “attacked” with the welding arc to simulate battle scars.

This model is currently on sale on Etsy for $450, and there’s only one of these – so if you want it, you need to hurry to get it. It’s over a foot high and weighs about 15 pounds! Keep in mind this is no kid’s toy, as it’s loaded with sharp metal edges.
