It Already Got Released And You Can Buy It Right Now!
The AT-TE, or the All Terrain Tactical Enforcer, was a walking tank from The Clone Wars. Nicknamed “six legs” this crawling fortress provided outstanding support to The Republic. In the Star Wars Universe, it was modeled after the Artic Horny Whelmers, which was a ten-legged creature that was low to the ground. In the real world, its shape and movement is akin to the diabolical ironclad beetle with its six legs (this bug is able to withstand being run over by cars)!
The AT-TE On The Star Wars Battlefield
This heavily armored tank supported the Clone army and the Jedi on the Battle of Geonosis. You probably remember it clearly when the separatists tried to flee the planet with the Republic trying to keep them on the ground. It is a master class in functional war-related Star Wars vehicles that would be a strong progenitor to the AT-AT featured in the Battle of Hoth in the Empire Strikes Back.
