Started the LEGO At-At. This time setting it up as an assembly line, which somewhat diminishes the pain of multiple identical assemblies.

I still remember when I saw those At-At's for the first time in the theater. It blew my mind!

Uhrrrrrrrr…..

This LEGO AT-AT is showing the same problems as previous kits. Clearly not designed to be assembled in earth gravity, for one thing.

Now I’ve got the legs built and attached to the underside, I feel like I should get some red hot metal rods and push them down thru the full length of the legs to add some actual support. At the very least I feel I’m going to have to force some glue into the joints!

Just looked at the price of the Lego AT-AT with 6785 pieces... Cripes, that is expensive.

I’ve done some gluing of bigger Lego sets. With some of them it’s necessary.

Speaking of large sets, there's this 10,001 piece Eiffel Tower coming out on Black Friday.
