2012 I wanted to do something big, i made Ironman last year and Master Chief the year before.

It is a 1:6.5 scale of the original and very large, i didnt get all the detail i wanted but here its is anyway.

Step 1: Making the frame

I built the frame from 1/2 in PVC and glued it together. Some areas were heat bent because there was no fittings for such angle.
<p>do you know how much of the corrugated plastic you used, and were did you buy it?</p><p>Thanks,</p><p> AVNERD</p>
<p>Sorry havent checked this lately, i think i used 6 4x8' sheets and i bought it at a plastics shop like TAP Plastics. </p><p>It is 1/10th scale i believe 10ft tall 12ft long and 4ft wide. </p>
<p>also do you have the dimensions so i can build it</p>
my friends wouldn't come with me to go in one of these so o built an at-st it looked great except that I couldn't get the legs right for my knees to bend still thanks for the inspiration

Love it
Thanks, the head was able to move up and down with a pulley and left and right. Blasters had light effects in them.
a few (only) suggestions: <br>1: make the head movable. <br>2: make something that lets you adjust how tall the stilts are. <br>3: install backpack straps inside so your hands are free. (look at #4, it makes this a lot easier) <br>4: install a HUGE box for candy inside. (what else are you going to do with all that empty space) <br>a note on the front along the lines of &quot;there are two people inside the walker, so please be generous&quot; will help both people inside.
oh, and add LEDS for the blasters in the front.
Not sure if you did or not but on the buckets adding a ring of rubber would soften your step to avoid that plastic thud that it makes when people walk with buckets on their feet. also putting some thing ti fill the void so it doesn't pump up with air like isolation.
I didn't do the rubber, but the insides were partially filled with expanding foam.
That helps too. Otherwise it's like Stomp http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdbuJkJsXt0 lol.
lol, that vid:p
I am building the at-st from endor
Looks cool! Can you make a video?
Well, people must not have liked starwars this year? I got 10,000 views in 3 weeks thanks all.
Good Lord!! That's not a Halloween costume. It's a parade float!! Amazing job! Can't wait for the video!
I have been trying to get one. The time I could get off work before dark, it was raining.
That awkward moment when you notice its bigger than the car...
Congratulations on being a finalist in the Halloween contest!!! Can&rsquo;t wait to see if you win! Good luck!
Thanks, fingers crossed. Supposed to announce today.
would been awesome it it Nerf or water blasters or... or..
Looks great. The framework and stilts are a great idea! A few extra details would have made this even better then it already is! Great instructable, gives me some great ideas for next year =D
Yea I just was crunched for time, I was up to 3am the day before doing finishing touches. I will be adding more for next year updates will be posted on Facebook under the Sacramento walker.
It lacks the intimacy of the horse costumes, in that you don't get to stick your nose in another persons holes. <br> <br>Other than that - it's good.
I'd love to see some video of this in action, it looks really awesome!
Working on it.
Quote from this instructable: <br>'I can be purchased in big sheets, since the election was still on and none were to be found free. I was cut to shape and screwed to the pvc.' ---You can be purchased in big sheets? And you were cut to shape and screwed to the PVC? Ouch. I pity you, lol. Anyway, thanks for the amazing instructable, regardless of its hilarious typos, which in reality make the instructable all the better because it provides entertainment as well as instruction.
I guess i should have proof read it 1st. Oh well. Thanks
This is the best!! <br>Did you guys ever fall down while walking in it?
Yes first time when we put it on as the frame. But only one person, both times.
Awesome! Any vids?
Awesome! Any vids?
Now I know what I want my first car to be.
Closest thing I could find to an Imperial Walker Car... <br>http://dsc.discovery.com/pdi/files/2012/02/star-wars-volkswagon.jpg <br> <br>Good luck with that!
This is fantastic!
This is Amaziing, thanks for sharing.
This is more amazing than the rather boring, two-person horse costume.
Yes, although my brother did still have to be the butt.
Great work! Video please.
Thanks. Working on the video.
This is just plain amazing!!! I am a huge Star Wars fan and I would drop over dead if this showed up at my door for candy (and I would clearly have to give every piece I have) NICE JOB!
I would only make it to a few houses in one night, top speed is slow!!
Wow that's incredible. Nice work!
Thanks all. It was worn to a costume event, but sadly i made it 6 minutes late to be judged for the preliminary rounds. It was worn in a Big indoor venue, Transport was done by a Moving van. The smallest it would compact is 8.5ft by 3ft.
That is really cool.
Wow, this is great! I love that you have Luke hanging below. Looking at the size of your costume, how did you fit inside your house? (or did you only wear it outside?)
