Lego sells some impressively large and obscenely expensive models (the $800 Super Star Destroyer comes to mind) but the company does have its limits. Its largest AT-AT set tops out at 1,000 pieces, but this custom build pushes that to well over 6,000, which explains why it’s so gloriously detailed.
Who wants to be bothered walking a dog, changing a cat’s kitty litter, or cleaning a fish tank when all this remote control walking AT-AT needs is an occasional new set of nine batteries? It’s the perfect pet, and is guaranteed to never go crazy during a thunderstorm.
The exact reason why people feel the need to adorn their lawns and gardens with ceramic gnomes may never be known, but maybe it's a not-so-secret way to show their allegiance towards a race of tiny human-like fantasy creatures?

Most liquor cabinets are good. They tend to be filled with booze, which is a great starting point. But this Imperial Walker cupboard should have your family simultaneously drunk and quoting Star Wars. What better?
Halloween was a hoot this year, but Angie never looked any of us in the eye ever again.
So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn't possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn't worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case.
Hide wires, powerboards, your prized mini-figs—heck, even the droids the stormtroopers are still looking for, all in this tidy flatpacked AT-AT model from China.
