The giantic AT-AT slowing moving in snow, firing away...
All the action pack!! Hard to forget!

This motorized AT-AT is able to walk forward or backward with head movements too.
Found a video on youtube of AT-AT walking on snow which I've attached at the end of this post. I think it's very cool to have AT-AT filmed outdoor in the snow.
