Having got hold of both a Snowspeeder and AT ST in 1/48, I'm wondering if any AT STs were used during the battle on Hoth? I lent all my Star Wars films to my son-in-law to let him catch up with them before he went to see SW7 and I haven't got them back yet to check.


There's a 1/48 AT AT on the way and I'm thinking it would be nice if I could get all three into a dio.


Does anyone do any Star Wars figures in 1/48 or 1/72?

Hi Dave


Watch the clip on battle of hoth and I believe as the AT AT are coming closer there is a shot between them and there are 2 ATST walking faster than the Giants. It's on you tube if you check out hoth battle Star Wars


Hope this helps

On the original Hoth battle ATSTs weren't there. On the re mastered ones there are two as Robert mentioned.

It's true that in the original movies there weren't ATSTs but I'm sure that not many fans would disapprove any diorama involving both models.


By the way you were asking for Star Wars figures at 1/48th... the models from Knight Models were just great, but unfortunately I think that they're discontinued.

Thanks guys. At least I know they're out there. I managed to find these which are absolutely perfect for what I want - except for one small detail:

If it suits the dio stick them in... If it were a factual dio people would see it as a fault but as it's fiction anyway who's to say there wasnt this vehicle just out of shot anyway. The time line would be correct so the dio will look right. imo.

Ah ok... It's just the bit of the website I want is hopelessly outdated...... I want to do a marvel character (preferably one without a face to paint) but eBay keeps comming up empty or silly money.

Was hoping they'd release some more recent ones (antman/deadpool) as they've had films out recently. Iron man is popular but people are asking £40+ and I'm only a beginner.

Even though I am not a fan, I do know that Dragon are doing a 1/35 AT-AT ;)
Amazing innit? I didn't know about this one, but I checked it out. Would you believe there's a site out there with a couple of guys having a flame war over the accuracy of the kit which hasn't even been released yet? How these children argue over a model of a model of something that's never been real - except a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away! :D

I think you're right. It would look good even if not accurate and that's all that Sci Fi dios are supposed to do! Just gotta wait now for the AT AT.
