This Dude Built a Massive Star Wars AT-AT out of 6,000 LEGOs

If you thought the story of a guy devoting a year to constructing a 7,500-piece LEGO Millennium Falcon was Jedi-level impressive, prepare to be blown away by another massive Star Wars-inspired LEGO creation: a 6,000-piece, custom built AT-AT (All Terrain Armored Transport).
