This steampunk AT-AT toy is the ultimate piece of Star Wars machinery. It is exactly how it would look had Star Wars been a steampunk genre.

Possibly the best part of this craft is the fact that it can power real steam—an underused feature of any steampunk device. The AT-AT is intricately detailed and carries an uncanny similarity to the real thing. It has even been covered in seaweed to portray the back-story of one that patrolled along the coastline. If you look closely, the marine theme is continued with a narwhal horn on the front.

The AT-AT toy was a gift from an ingenious crafter named Mark for his lucky fiancée Caroline. I couldn’t think of a more appropriate wedding gift.
