Foam AT-AT Build

The applications of EVA foam seem endless. You can make props, costumes, and even nerdy decor. Jamie Young, also known as Foamtastic Creations or Foamtastic Props, constructed an AT-AT from foam. He shared videos of the before and after, and it’s cool to see the vehicle transform from brightly colored EVA foam layers to a gray, weathered Imperial Walker. It looks right at home in the snow.

Young left the cockpit of the four-feet tall AT-At open and big enough for action figures to fit in. As you can see from the below picture, he also added lighting.

You can see the lighting in this photo:
