Imperial Walker AT-AT Made From Recycled Computer Parts

ImperialWalkerATAT640

Sage Werbock, a metalworker and retired sideshow performer, used sheet metal and spare computer parts to to create an impressive AT-AT sculpture. Standing a foot high and weighing in at 15 pounds, this piece of Star Wars art will keep the Rebel Alliance at bay for a long time. Sage currently has the AT-AT up for sale at his Etsy store for $450.

This is an Imperial Walker sculpture I made from recycled computer parts and other scrap metal materials. The Imperial Walker, also known as the AT-AT is an iconic figure from the original Star Wars trilogy movies. It is a static sculpture, meaning there are no moveable parts although the piece appears to be in mid-stride.

The main body is composed of power supply boxes from old computers, the head from floppy drive housings, legs and feet from various scrap metal. The entire piece has been welded together using the MIG welding process. Two coats of cold galvanizing primer are applied followed by a coat of varied grays and finished with two coats of protective gloss. The whole sculpture was randomly “attacked” with the welding arc to simulate battle scars.
