He touched the Jabba poop with his bare hands!

Awwww! That's almost as cute as his Iron Baby.

I'm not a Star Wars person, but that was adorable and delightful.

Here's another one of his, slightly disturbing, but very well done:

These special purebreeds are so inbred and stupid. Why couldn't he just have adopted a nice mongrel instead?

I LOLed at the Jabba poo.

Is that pee or oil or battery acid? It's really important that I know, it will help my purchasing decision.

Ha, that's great. Should have had a part where it's pestered by tiny snowspeeders though.

It was wearing a collar.

you know, the first three movies had some of the best weapons ever. the AT-AT. the floating droid that interrogates Leia. the death star

why isn't there anything like that in the prequels? it's weird.

> why isn't there anything like that in the prequels? it's weird.

There never were any prequels. Just "Star Wars" and "Empire Strikes Back". I think someone made a fan tribute later on with some orangutangs, although that might've been a Clint Eastwood sequel. The prequels were just fanfic or something.

Although I did like Amidala's spaceship, even though it's a pretty blatant rip off of an SR 71. As for why there aren't any cool vehicles from those horrible moives, they simply had too free of a canvas, too much money, and no restraints. It was a recipe for shiny ugly hodge podge.

/sad

I was expecting an AT AT walking around yelling "AT ATICA! AT ATICA!"

That was awesome. Honestly, though, how was it done? Was it stop motion? Was it CG? Inquiring minds wonder, if it was stop motion, how did they get the background so seemless with the AT-AT?

Also, I want one. I had one, a long time ago, but it didn't, y'know, move on it's own. I wanna snuggle up with my AT-AT after a long day at work. I promise I'll take good care of it. Can I have one, please?

that is impressive, most impressive.

The "mandalorian dance" is pretty great also. (seems like a combo of CGI, with some stop motion)

The Fan made remix-Prequel sequel that will get made in like the next 10 years, incorporating new material, with the current movies as 'raw-material' will be awesome, and it will make star wars hip again, forever replacing all memories of the movies made in the 1999-2005 era (did anything good come out of these years? Perhaps there is a thesis to be made regarding the Abyss of Bad that is this time period [heh, ultimate apologist "it's not lucas... it's the UNIVERSE!"]).

Here's a making of of one of his earlier videos, looks like the AT-AT one was done largely the same way.

(For the Transformer fans: the General Lee's in the link above are customized Gundams, which is why it's so huge for a Deluxe model.)

I hate it when people just let their AT-ATs run around wherever they feel like. Put your AT-AT on a leash!
posted by TheWhiteSkull at 7:54 PM on June 27, 2010


AT-At's don't get that majestic arc to their back when taking a shit. It is truly one of the most beautiful curves in nature.

What impresses me is the running. Most of the shots look do-able with a marionette-style rig, but the running looked way too realistic for CG (It still could be for all I know) and would seem to be really difficult to do marionette style.
posted by fnerg at 8:57 PM on June 27, 2010


I've been watching this all day and every single time I see the AT-AT fire his* turrets at the squirrel, a loud "SQUEE" erupts from me. It's the cutest and most adorable thing I have ever seen and is exactly what I would expect a real pet AT-AT to do.

*Telltale leglift.

That was a lot of excrement footage.

I've been suspicious that krautland was a fake country. Now I know it.

Who's a good AT-AT? You are. Yes YOU are! You're such a good AT-AT.

Surprised he didn't run into another AT-AT at the park and engage in a bit of exhaust port sniffing.

You had me at AT-AT, but people, you really need to indicate Boivin-filter clearly. I would've been all over this as soon as it was posted.

My fave.
