  1. Check Out This Neat Star Wars AT-AT Rocker and Be Jealous That You Don’t Have One

    Don't underestimate the power of this rocker.

    If you don't think an AT-AT Rocker is one the coolest and cutest things ever, then you need to reevaluate your life choices. Cakewrecks/EPBOT writer Jen Yates has finished a very impressive piece of work, not only including all the details of the AT AT (even the red eye!), but making it comfortable and secure.

  2. Olympic Skiing Is Way Better When Combined With Star Wars [Video]

    Odds of surviving Sochi are 758 to 1.

    All everyone wants to talk about recently is the Olympics, which gets kind of boring for us nerdy types who aren't exactly into physical competition unless it involves robots and lasers. If the Olympics featured AT-ATs that shoot to disrupt skiers like they do in this video, we'd be way more interested. Some Jedi wouldn't hurt, either.

  4. Why Isn’t This Steampunk AT-AT Liquor Cabinet Already in My Posession?

    It's a shiny science fiction reference full of booze! Those are all of my favorite things!

    Oh my God. Would you look at this thing? This gorgeous piece of art that amazing woodworker Colin Johnson has produced. It's a steampunk-inspired liquor cabinet made to resemble the walking AT-ATs from The Empire Strike Back. It probably doesn't do any actual walking since it's mostly made from mahogany and brass trim, but that's for the best, really. God forbid your alcohol start to walk away from you while you're trying to get at it. That's a recipe for disaster.

  5. I Do: This Beautifully Modded Steampunk AT-AT Is Also an Engagement Gift

    For A More Civilized Age

    Dont' be fooled: that's not actual smoke, just a clever facsimlie that Mark (Broken Journalist on Flickr) crafted to give to his fiance as an engagement present. Now that's a standard neither Han nor Leia have lived up to.

  6. An Articulated, Tandem-Bicycle-Mounted AT-AT, the Economical Way to Eliminated Hidden Rebel Bases

    this exists

    Budget cuts under the recession being what they are, the Rebels were not surprised to see these machines descending on their frigid home base. At the very least, they had to admit, they didn't think tying its shoelaces together with a snowspeeder would be as effective anymore. Actually, this video is from Pedalpalooza's Star Wars vs. Star Trek event, a series Oregonian summer cycling events, classes and get togethers. (via Geeks are Sexy.)

  7. Dig Out Your Tie Dye Storm Trooper Cosplay: An AT-AT That’s A VW Bus

    For A More Civilized Age

    We'd like to think that this is the wreckage of a small defected duo of Storm Troopers, fed up with the crushing rules of Imperial Life, decided to break away from the last generation's totally harsh sense of existence and travel around Naboo or somewhere temperate, just getting high. On life. Or the Force or something. We're not picky. (via Nerd Approved.)

  8. This Homemade AT-AT Liquor Cabinet Could Conquer Hoth, Hold Your Booze

    Some people just house their booze in an unused cabinet, or if you're in college you can just throw it all in the freezer -- guaranteeing that it will be completely tasteless and thus more easily consumed. However, neither of these options were good enough for master DIY-er Colin Johnson, who instead went and built this gorgeous wood and brass Imperial AT-AT liquor cabinet. Complete with a mirrored interior, it's the perfect repository for your Romulan Ale whatever it is they drink in the Star Wars universe. See more pictures, after the break.

  9. Things We Saw Today: AT-ATs In a Meadow

    Things We Saw Today

    Fun fact: AT-ATs, originally thought to be robots, actually hatch from eggs, which are carried in the mother AT-AT's belly pouch like a kangaroo. Isn't that adorable? (via I Heart Chaos)

  11. Star Wars Fans Want to Build a Life-Sized, Fully Functional AT-AT

    This is about the worthiest technical endeavor we can imagine: A devoted group of Star Wars geeks, led by Oklahoman Mike Koehler, have launched a project called AT-AT for America. The goal: to build a "fully fuctional, full-scale model of an AT-AT Imperial Walker from The Empire Strikes Back." Speaking to news.com.au, Koehler elaborates:

    Why did you choose a symbol of the Empire's destructive capabilities to represent the US? The AT-AT is not so much a representation of the US as it is a monument to what geek culture and its know-how has done for people in the country and, as I am quickly learning, folks all over the world. The can-do and cooperative spirit that nerdy pop culture has inspired can't be overlooked in the past 30, 40, 50 years. I wanted to make something that was: A) Doable. Fast-than-light and force field technology made many options unrealistic. B) Big enough to be awe-inspiring. Many people have made R2 units and Back to the Future Deloreans. The AT-AT is 50-feet tall. [Geekosystem editor's note: According to Wookieepedia, it's actually more like 74 feet tall.] ... The original AT-ATs had some notable design flaws. How will you Ewok-proof it? No Ewoks will be allowed around the build sites. Sharpened logs will also be strictly prohibited. We are working towards some strong anti-log technology.
    Where to begin? Koehler admits that he doesn't quite know, and has neither great technical expertise nor funds to do this on his own. (Once he has some engineering talent on board, we'd recommend Kickstarter.) But he's got heart. And it's for America. Do you have a problem with America? (AT-AT for America via news.com.au)

  13. Star Wars Yoga

    Who says that a healthy spine and obsessive geekery are mutually exclusive? Writer and comedian Matthew Latkewicz sure doesn't, which is why he's whipped up Star Wars Yoga, a series of postures and stretches inspired by the Star Wars series. In Latkewicz's world, LucasArts' marketing towards "overweight 'geeks' and 'nerds'" has hit saturation, and so it turns to the next logical target market: Yuppies. More pics below:

  14. AT-AT Day Afternoon [Heartwarming]

    Patrick Boivin of Iron Baby fame has come up with a new geeky-quirky short film with 400% more heartwarming: "AT-AT Day Afternoon," which explores the secret life of AT-AT walkers over a perfectly-suited Blithe Field soundtrack. (They're a lot like dogs, only even more adorable.)

  15. Today in Adorable Things: AT-AT Stroller

    A few years back, dad Rick Russo -- who totally has a sleeve tattoo of Boba Fett -- modded his 7-month-old son Reed's baby stroller to look like an AT-AT. While it can't walk in a jerky, staccatolike fashion, the wheels are a nice safety for foiling Rebel tripwires.

  16. Bacon AT-ATs: Deliciously Invading Hoth

    We at Geekosystem are on the record as being big fans of bacon-related handicrafts, which is why our collective jaws dropped and filled with tears of pride when we saw how This is Freaking Ridiculous celebrated Bacon Day: by sculpting an AT-AT out of bacon. The Bacon AT-AT's specs, according to the TIFR crew:
    • 40+ pounds of bacon
    • 21 nonstop hours to build
    • 3+ feet high
    • tasty
