No it's not a chicken walker.It's exactly an AT-At w/o the rear part of the canopy.It still has 4 legs,above the back legs there is a platform mouted with a gun.A large one.

It may not be vintage but it was made by Kenner

So it's a convertable AT-AT, with a canon mounted in the rear? Never heard of it.

You're talking about the AT-IC (All Terrain Ion Cannon) that was part of Kenner's extension for the Star Wars line in 1986. It never got off the ground though as Star Wars gave way to GI Joe, Transformers, He-Man, and more in the mid to late 80's. The entire story of this pretty cool concept can be found as always at the TRG Archive.

Strangely enough, that's exactly how I saw it in my head, minus the paintjobs.

So basically, it's an AT-AT with the back cut open and the cannon from the Death Star Playset on the back.

I want one!  ;D

it looks like a cut up at-at with the death star gun mounted in it.  maybe not too hard of a custom to make.

that's exactly it, though the gun's barrel is modified as it appears to be a less detailed long cylinder. the entire concept was fasicinating, especially the Outpost playset which would have been huge as it was scaled to an AT-AT.
