Sam's AT-ST costume illustrates the full depth of Steve's genius and/or madness (these are not exclusive options). Guided by Sam's illustrated plans and a detailed study of Star Wars movies, games, Legos, cartoons, and websites, Steve and Sam succeeded in building a heck of an amazing AT-ST costume this year.
Here's the inside view, complete with harness, air pump to power the working concussion (foam dart) launcher, and video monitor. After experimenting with the costume, Sam decided that the camera and video screen weren't necessary and he would just look out of the "Command viewports."
Here are Sam's original plans for the AT-ST. Steve and Sam worked tirelessly over the last two weeks to bring Sam's vision to life and we are very proud of the results. Mere still photography cannot capture the magnificence of their creation, so we have included Sam's video tour and demonstration of his costume for your viewing pleasure.
Astounding, I know, I tear up a little myself every time I see it.
