The recently released and massive #75313 LEGO Star Wars AT-AT is the latest in the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) line-up. We talked about the set in detail (see: LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series AT-AT) but to recap, this version of the All Terrain Armored Transport from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is the largest version LEGO ever released. It comes with 6,785 pieces and includes features like a movable head, spinning guns, adjustable legs, and side panels that open to reveal the detailed interior. The overall size is 62cm / 24.5 inches high, 69cm / 27 inches long, and 24cm / 9.5 inches wide.
You can really get a sense of the massive size of this set in the recently released designer-video, where LEGO designer Henrik Andersen demonstrates all the unique features and functions of the set.
There is also a second video with the LEGO designer of the set, where he demonstrates how to remove/take apart some of the most complex assemblies in the model.
LEGO has been releasing some incredible sets in the Star Wars collection, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in a standard retail set. Sets like the #76192 LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon, the #75252 LEGO Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer, the #75309 LEGO Star Wars Republic Gunship, and the #75290 LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina bring to life some of the most iconic scenes, locations, vehicles, and characters from the films, and also provide a challenging building experience. If you would like to take a look, visit the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.

I guess it’s pretty accurate to the source, but it’s just too massive and gray for me. I wouldn’t know where to put it, even if I could afford it.
I’m happy that the Empire and Rebel grunts are getting more diverse heads, concerning gender and skin tones, though. And that these heads could be bought separately. A pleasant development for MOC:ers and free-builders…
What are those keys used for on the legs?
I think it’s some kind of compromise between flexibility and stability. To reposition the AT-AT and change the legs’ positions, you’d need to unlock and relock certain sections before you place it back in position, I’d venture a guess… By the looks of it…
I don’t have the set, but that’s what it seems like from the video. And the legs are supported by a Technic core, so it should be stable enough to support the body. But time will tell. Some massive sets do start to sag with age.
I wonder if there is any chance of the legs sagging after a while. I mean, this is a heavy beast! As far as the second video, I think it was in response of some people claiming that certain sections were impossible to take apart. But I read this on FB, so take it with a grain of salt. The designer doesn’t seem to have such problem.
It was harder to take a section apart, than what was expected from a Lego set. Apparently Huw Millington of Brickset fame still claims to be unable to do it, I believe.
