Ohio Man Creates Giant Replica of Armored “Star Wars” Vehicle in His Yard



MIAMI – A resident of Parma, Ohio, has built a replica two stories tall of an All Terrain Armored Transport, the giant four-legged walker vehicle that appeared in the snowy battles of “The Empire Strikes Back” (1980), the second movie of the “Star Wars” saga.

The giant four-legged replica constructed by Nick Meyer to decorate the front lawn of his home for the upcoming Halloween season has created a sensation in his hometown and on social media.

Meyer built his AT-AT, as it is called in “Star Wars” jargon, out of hard foam, wood and plastic barrels, in a project that took him months to complete from the time he started collecting the material last April.

Once stockpiled the material, he kicked off his “weekend project,” as he said on Cleveland.com, and kept at it until it was almost as tall as his two-story house.

Meyer said he enjoys the saga created by George Lucas, but is not exactly a fanatic of those galactic tales.

The next adventure in the “Star Wars” universe: “Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi,” starring Daisy Ridley and Mark Hamill, will premiere next Dec. 15, and will be a continuation of the story that began with “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens” (2015).
