Manchester-based photographer Nick Drummond has snuck behind enemy lines to uncover the secret life of the AT-AT Walker from Star Wars – and it seems like we might have been giving them a bad wrap.  I guess years of breeding have brought them down to a more manageable size, but I still wouldn’t trust them around your Empire Strikes Back Rebel Alliance action figures.  They’re still bound to get trounced like a mouse under a cat’s claw. 

In his interview with the Star Wars blog, Drummond said:

"I took a few photos before I handed everything on [to my nephew, as a gift] and noticed that the AT-AT was very photogenic. As it was getting on for Christmas I took a few more shots hoping to make one into a puzzle for a present. I was much happier with the results than I expected and the ideas just haven’t stopped yet. Turns out my nephew already has an AT-AT, so I get to keep ATilla."

I’ll bet Drummond’s nephew never ever saw ATilla.  Check out a handful of Uncle Nick’s handiwork after the jump.

And be sure to visit Mr. Drummond’s Flickr page to see the rest of these oddly adorable photos.

    Good Day. When they discover the center of the universe, a lot of people will be disappointed to discover they are not it. Help me! Looking for sites on: To buy detox foot pads. I found only this – foot detox pads side effects. I posted n’t care one could shock foot perfumes, as my review had just blocked me about them. You eliminate, our weeks try baby as the horrific treatment to turn our spa dog and know wear of bodies. Thank :-) Yarin from Burma.
