The Weird and Wonderful Ebay: Life Size Scout Walker

21 Sep

By James Robert Shaw (The Wind up Geek)

starwarsSo how much will approximately £10,000 buy you in the UK? Well if you’re a geek with big dreams, you can buy yourself one heck of a conversation piece.

If fixing up your flat to look like Pee Wee’s Playhouse (or perhaps you like Rainbow) is out of the question then look no further at 16ft in height of the Star Wars AT-ST Scout Walker. This is definitely one toy that won’t fit into your display case at home. But if you have an available car park space, it can act as the beacon for Star Wars fans within your neighbourhood.

Built out of wood and metal and meant to resemble the fictional vehicle from Return of the Jedi (pesky Ewoks not included), this beauty is looking for a new home at an asking price of £9,800. It currently resides in Bristol; but should you happen to live in Battersea, know that this Scout Walker is almost theft-proof. There are no wheels for some snot-nosed kid to steal and there’s no engine to turn over to drive it away to some chop shop.

It’s a shame about the lack of an engine though. I would have loved to drive this baby to work. Imagine the traffic jams you could avoid as you scrape the cars off the bottom of its shoes.
