A popular Star Wars campaign took place on the icy planet of Rhen Var. Known as the Battle of Rhen Var, LEGO custom builder Markus builds an awesome recreation of the Rebel base with fighters in action and Imperial troopers on the attack. The detailed diorama features LED lights, a command center & hangar bays with X-Wings, Y-Wings and Landspeeders. It was a 10-month build with over 250,000 LEGO bricks and 250 minifigs.
One of the most popular Star Wars toys was the AT-AT Walker and in the upcoming Rogue One film, a variant version of the AT-AT is introduced, the Imperial AT-ACT. While the AT-AT is a heavy offensive weapon and troop carrier, the AT-ACT carries heavy materials and weapons.
