Sam's AT-ST Costume

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.

I wasn't sure you could ever outdo last year's transformers, but you did. That is totally wicked cool! Jenna and I love how the back leg joints work and look like the "real" ones from the movie. Sam and Steve: YOU ROCK!

So Morningstarriffic! Sorry we missed you all this year, I hope you got lots of goodies. I am quite sure that Max would have been "wowed" by the cool gear!

Jamie said...

Wow! That is fabulous! So impressed! Wait, beyond impressed! That is the sweetest costume ever!

Now that is pretty unbelievable! I have to ask Sam, how did you get candy? Did you have Ben the Ewok get your share while you held them up with your rocket launchers? Or maybe Sasha just smiled and that got you the extra lot!

Sounds like the Morningstars where the hit of Halloween!

I agree with Pastor Rich and Jenna...the leg joints are amazing....pretty ingenious to attach them to Sam's feet! Way to go, gentleman! Two thumbs up! :)!
