“Who says you can’t teach an old imperial armored transport new tricks?”

According to wikipedia, here is the definition of an AT-AT: a large, four-legged walking robot (“walker”) introduced in The Empire Strikes Back and also appearing in Return of the Jedi.

British photographer Nick Drummond bought the Star Wars action figure as a gift; he didn’t plan to use it as a model. But the AT-AT Walker looked cute in his kitchen, so Drummond began shooting it in petlike poses. The result is this website in which the AT-AT strolls on the beach, spars with a cat, and does a handstand. As Drummond notes, “Who says you can’t teach an old imperial armored transport new tricks?”
