Shadow AT-RT
First MOC since the hacking, let's see how this goes. If you don't know what that's all about, just go read my homepage.
About this creation
So I'm not going to bore you with all the details in reading, instead, watch this fun video I made reviewing the MOC and sharing some of the backstory.



I make-a the Italiano hands when I-a review the MOCs!

Not up for a video? Well fine.



So it's an AT-RT, but for my Shadow Arf Trooper. But before we get into the details...



We must do bass to it. *Dubstep, Moombacore, Chill Step, Glitch Step, Happy Hardcore, House, Drum & Bass, etc. starts blaring*

Yes, terrible joke I know, but you should have watched the video instead. (Spoilers: It happened in there, too.)

No, I felt like there needed to be more than just the walker... and also Ben Cossy made a base for his, so I had to try and one up him.

It's kind of a shout out to an old MOC of mine from 2013... Holy crap, it's been five years... and uses some Ugly Rock Pieces. See, they're not completely useless, you guys just aren't using them correctly.



So there you have it, I've mentioned Ben Cossy's name. He shanghaied me into building this. He recently shared on Flickr an AT-RT that linked to a video showing building instructions, and then I made a joke about not being able to find the pieces with the slideshow running and then he made me feel guilty I wasn't actually trying to build his AT-RT.



And then I took his designs and changed them up. There's still some similarities between the two, but for the most part, and in art terms, after 60% of the appropriated work has been changed, it becomes your own original work, and well, I did that. Connections are different, the legs have more articulation, the little nose gun doesn't pivot sadly, and I've changed, well, basically all of it is different except for the telephone pieces and the connections with the antennae, and even that is a little different, but Ben's designs were the starting point, and because I'm nice, I'm giving him some credit.



I chose to go black because I knew I would have the pieces to make Ben's design in black, making it perfect for the 2011 promotional figure, the Shadow Arf Trooper.

And then I changed all of Ben's designs. *sigh*

Still, it looks cool.



Have one last look at the MOC with the base before heading off to bigger and better MOCs.



Oh yeah, did you guys know that Star Wars: The Clone Wars is coming back?!

Check out this awesome trailer!

There will only be 12 new episodes, but we will finally be getting a proper ending to the show, and that ending is going to be The Siege of Mandalore! If you don't know what that is, well then how can you call yourself a Clone Wars fan? Actually, I'm not that shallow, but if you don't actually know, the word has been out for awhile now on that particular story arc because of Star Wars Celebrations from years past, but I will keep it all secret for you. Get hyped! But not too hyped either. Even though this is all going to be stuff from before the Disney acquisition back in 2012, the last thing we need is more drama in the Star Wars fandom, especially about Clone Wars. It's return might be the only thing everyone can agree on at the moment.

Alright, I'm out! Thanks for stopping by and checking out the MOC. Don't forget to rate and comment!

Quoting Silver Sword05 Suh-weet! Unfortunately, I'm missing a lot of the pieces for Ben Cossy's build, so I'll stick with FOL's design. Check out the channel First Order Lego on YT (can't do links bc I can't access YouTube on this computer D:)! Also, MAN I WISH I HADE THE SHADOW ARF TROOPER! :P Again, great MOC!
Thanks! I just checked it out, and it's not a bad design. Could use an upgrade though. Those backwards toes look a little silly compared to the source material. I do like the chassis because of that storage of the weapon. AT-RT's are hard to make at minifig scale because minifigs have such funny proportions and mobility.

Quoting Ben Cossy Love the base you did. Also I kinda only just realized how much you tweaked the design, you made some really solid additions! Great work. I'll have to guilt you into building stuff more often... Oh and I wish I had your Shadow trooper D: Are they actually cannon? Or is that an EU thing?
I don't know. Quick Roben, to Wookieepedia! Shadow Clones Troopers are mostly Legends, but it seems to be more of a Phase II thing. However, that doesn't rule out the possibility of there being any ARF Troopers. I think it was more something LEGO could do for fun. Apparently in the LEGO Clone Wars game, you can play as a Shadow Clone, but it didn't specify if that was an ARF or not. There is a Canon article, but it has one sentence on it saying they existed.

Quoting Clayton Marchetti I really love that figure. Great job on the AT-RT. Awesome base too.
After you commented, I remembered I forgot to mention that it was a bit inspired by an old MOC of mine, so thanks for the reminder. Ugly Rock Pieces; they can be used, people just need to not be so uptight about them.
