What have you done to Rolling Thunder?!?!  lol

Nice job, i like the colors, but i think some weathering (similar to the AT-AT) would really bring this thing to life.  I like how you swapped out the small tank with a more SW-like one.

Funny side note, i just recently purchased a MIB Rolling Thunder and put it together.  I missed out on it as a kid and was thrilled to be able to 'open it' for the first time as a "GROWN-UP" adult, lol.

Wow, that's really cool!  I agree with aeseven7, a little weathering would make this look top notch.  The use of the mini-rigs is great.  I like how these are gaining popularity again (or at least it seems that way). 

Is this a vintage/rehash of a vintage vehicle or is it new?
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

The windows do open easily.

I might do some weathering, but again I do not see the appeal to doing that.

It was once a Gijoe Rolling Thunder, that I painted and carved the rear deck out. I then carved the seats from a Gijoe APC, and screwed them down.

As for the minirigs, I've wanted t0hose particular two since back in the day.

Wow!
That made an Awsome piece of Clone Armor.

I've been thinking of getting a few Joe Type Vehicles for this kind of Custom.

Thanks for the Inspiration,

Thank you for your compliments.

When I collected joes, I always thought it had more of a Star Wars feel anyways.

Rolling Thunder was a great toy back in the days. It just shows that if Hasbro wanted to make a cool star wars vehicle they could just modify the GI Joe Rolling Thunder with some new paint apps. Nice modifications you made. Now detail it with some snow and blaster effects.

I like my customs clean, why is everybody obsessed with weathering? With the strict regimine of the Republic/Empire, they must insist on cleaning their vehicles once and a while!

Wow, I love this!  It's so Imperial looking.  I am going to need to get one of these for sure.  You did a great job and convinced me that this really is something I need to try myself.  Well done and thanks for sharing this awesome custom vehicle of yours!

I like it as it is. A few more detailing in the form of stripes or aurebesh numbers could add to it's appearance, but as it is it stands brilliantly.

The front cockpits look a bit naked, but then again, there's not much that can be done with such big transparent surfaces. For some reason, the design looks more like CIS than GAR to me. I wonder how it'd look filled with neimodians and a few spider droids as complement.

What are?

aurebesh numbers
CIS
GAR

and BTW, if you are not familiar with a Rolling Thunder, that rear gangplank was carved by hand.

I can help with one for sure:
GAR = Grand Army of the Republic

I can't think of CIS but I believe it is the acronym for the Separatists.

Is aurebesh a Mandalorian thing?

Please don't get offended that some people are asking about weathering... it just might make it look less like a toy and more like a real vehicle.  I'll get one of these eventually and hopefully I can weather it.  You've really inspired me that I have to pick one of these up.
