Clone Walker – Lego Star Wars 75019
Realeased in 2013, the Lego Star Wars 75019 Walker is an awesome new set based on the Clone AT-TE vehicle from Star Wars movies Clone Wars, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. AT-TE stands for All Terain Tactical Enforcer, it’s basically a huge armored assault vehicle used by the Clone army. This set is actually a rework of set 7675 that was released a couple of years ago, with new minifigures and better detail.
This monster has 794 Lego pieces and comes with 2 instructions booklets. Suggested age range is 9-14 years, but it depends on experience. There are some complicated sections that use technical bricks and parts, and it takes around 2-3 hours to build.
Guns, guns, guns.
Once it’s built it stands 43cm (16″) long and 22cm (8″) high on it’s six movable legs, it’s a big beastie! And guns galore. It has 6 fully moving laser cannons, 4 at the front, 2 at the back, and a top turret with cannon and flick-fire missiles. The turret tilts back to reveal 4 more missiles.
The front cockpit section is made of nice dark-red and clear bricks, and pulls out to allow access to the driving seat and controls. The rear section pull up and folds back to reveal space for Troopers or Jedi and weapons. There is a fold-down ladder and a cargo storage box with thermal detonators in there too.
Lego 75019 comes with 5 new minifigures. There’s a Battle Droid and a Battle Droid Commander (has a yellow strip on his head, and a yellow dot on his chest) both with medium sized blasters. The Clone Commander has smart yellow detail on his helmet and yellow arms, and has a huge blaster weapon (a large blaster with a technical-lego rivet on the end). Then you get two Jedi: Mace Windu and Coleman Trebor. They both have silver-handled light-sabers which are very cool.
It’s a shame there are not one or two more Clone Troopers in this set, because you can have one driving and one seated on the top turret. But having 2 Jedi in one set makes up for that. Still, the older set 7675 had Captain Rex and Anakin Skywalker. Which is better?
So the Lego Star Wars 75019 Walker is a little on the expensive side, but it would make a great addition to anyone’s collection. It looks big and impressive and there is plenty of playability to it. Did I mention it has a carrying handle? If you are into making movies with Lego then this would be great because of the six legs and movable cannons.

Aidan’s opinion: Lego 75019
Bought this set at Christmas for 90€ and I love it!!
Looks great on a shelf (but you need a wide one) and great to play with. All of the guns makes it look dangerous, and so do the 6 torpedoes. There are some things that I don’t quite like about it though, the sides aren’t very well held on, and also the cockpit, though it looks great, is a bit awkward getting it in and out. There is also another thing, the legs “relax” when piked up, so the legs don’t spread out again when put down on a rough surface, like a table cloth, but that doesn’t matter.
