If you're building an AT-Hauler from my plans, the above link has images showing updates and tips on finishing and painting your toy.

At last, here it is: my AT-Hauler for 3.75" Figures building kit.

This design is my own "toyetic" idea of what the Imperial AT-Hauler might have been like had Hasbro made one. It can interact with Hasbro's AT-DT Walker toy by carrying and releasing it just as you see an AT-Hauler do in SOLO. Its arms are 18" long. You can download the building plans for free to make your own.

This build kit includes templates and decals in PDF and in their original PNG format. The Photo Guide shows you how the pieces go together (and how to build certain elements, such as the pilot seat and winches from scratch), so you can flip through them as you build.

Later in the coming months, I plan to post lots of photos of this AT-Hauler painted and with the decals applied to it. In the meantime, here are photos of it in its natural cardboard glory.

Have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Solstice, Kwanzaa, Friendsmas, Life Day and New Year!

This AT-Hauler is made with corrugated cardboard (Amazon boxes), paperboard (cereal, snack boxes), coffee stirrers, toothpicks and a coffee cup sleeve. The only plastic parts are the cockpit window (from throwaway packaging for a sandwich), cylinders for the winches and some detailing on its back plate (both from bendy drinking straws). You probably have most of these materials already in your home or office.

And it's held together with white glue -- the cheap stuff that grade school kids use. No other adhesives were used. Masking tape was used to temporarily hold glued pieces together until the glue dried and removed.

Someone in a Star Wars toys customizing Facebook group, Rob Brown, has been building his own Hauler using my plans -- but he's using plastic sheets (instead of cardboard)! Here's his progress so far. Rob devised a "stopper" pin for the rotating arm joint (which stops the arms from rotating too far back and too far forward).

He's about to own the closest thing to a "real" AT-Hauler toy for 3.75" action figures, because his will be plastic!
