Best LEGO Star Wars AT-ST Sets

The AT-ST Walker has appeared in a total of 6 sets through the years and our goal today is to compare them and see which one is the best LEGO AT-ST.

The All Terrain Scout Transport, commonly known as AT-ST, was a lightweight walker used by the Galactic Empire military. It was later upgraded to a newer variant by their successor – the First Order

Although this walker appeared two or three times in the original trilogy (in Empire Strikes back and during the Battle of Endor in Return of the Jedi), it regularly appeared in Rebels which was an animated series set in the years between Episode III and Episode IV.

Lets take a look at the LEGO Star Wars AT-ST sets.

7127 Imperial AT-ST

The first-ever AT-ST LEGO set was released in 2001, just two years after the Star Wars Theme had its debut on the market. Needless to say, this set is really small and easy to build.

Similar to the majority of sets from the early years of the Star Wars theme, it has a simple design and the accuracy is not impressive. Of course, the set is too small to be accurate.

In terms of playability, it does allow a lot of movements and it is surprisingly sturdy compared to some of the larger AT-ST sets that were released later.

Overall, this AT-ST set was not really impressive back in the day but it was a great option for small children.

Year: 2001

Piece Count: 107

10174 Ultimate Collector’s AT-ST

Although UCS sets were not a part of a separate line in 2006 yet, this set is considered a part of the UCS family. It was one of the first sets of this size released in the LEGO Star Wars theme.

Although the UCS AT-ST did not look as exceptional as the other early UCS sets like the Imperial Star Destroyer or Death Star II, it was an overall satisfying set that had a great design and was surprisingly sturdy.

Although the piece count is quite low for the original retail price it had, and the build is pretty simple and straightforward, the final result is one magnificent set that is also a great display piece. As every other AT-ST, it looks fragile but I can assure you that it will not break.

Similar to the majority of UCS sets, it has no minifigures included which was another negative aspect of the price. However, if you have the chance to get this set without spending a fortune, I would strongly recommend getting it. It will be an incredible addition to your collection.

Year: 2006

Piece Count: 1068

Ages: 14+

Minifigures: None

Original Retail Price: $79.99

7657 AT-ST

A few months after we received the UCS AT-ST, LEGO released a more affordable AT-ST set that people who didn’t want to spend $79.99 could buy. Of course, the 7657 AT-ST could not compare in any way.

The design of this set is overall great and the build is easy and stable. Unfortunately, the legs cannot do a walking movement but their design is really accurate to the movies. The minifigure included – an AT-ST pilot is overall great, it hasn’t got a very flashy design but it quite accurate to the movies once again.

The set would have been much better if there was a second driver included. After all, there are two operating the AT-STs in the movies and animated shows.

In terms of playability, this set might or might not be suitable for you depending on your way of playing with LEGOs. If you want to move it around, then it will require some improvisation and imagination as the legs can’t move. However, if you like to recreate scenes from the movies, then this set will do great.

8038 The Battle of Endor

We are mentioning the Battle of Endor set as it includes a regular size AT-ST. For this set, in particular, we received an AT-ST with a brand new design that made it more accurate to the Endor scenes in the movie. However, the walking functions were slightly disappointing. It does compensate with stability, however.

If I can address the entire set before we continue, I would like to discuss the minifigure selection. First of all, the minifigures included are great overall. However, I believe we should have received C-3PO as well as he is such an important figure in the scenes on Endor. In addition, I honestly believe that there should have been one or two additional imperial minifigures. I think there are too many rebel characters and just three imperials.

Overall, I loved this set when it came out as the battle of Endor is my favorite part of the original trilogy. It is a great collector’s set that everyone should have.

Year: 2009

75153 AT-ST Walker

Seven years passed before we saw the next LEGO Star Wars AT-ST set. Finally, in 2016 we received the most recent Imperial variant from the first Rogue One line.

When I mentioned that not every AT-ST model we have seen is as sturdy as it should be, I was referring to this set. Although the base structure is solid and will not cause any issues, you may experience some troubles with the plates surrounding the armored cockpit. They appear to be fairly loose and may fall down if you are not too careful with it.

This walker set allows the largest variation in movement out of all we have seen prior to that. However, I myself often experience difficulties when I want to stabilize it on its legs. As I haven’t seen any negative comments from other people, I assume that this is an occasional issue, particularly with my set.

Other than that, the set includes the amazing Baze Malbus minifigure. This figure has an incredible amount of details and remains my favorite from the entire Rogue One line.

Year: 2016

Piece Count: 449

Ages: 8 – 14

Minifigures: Rebel Trooper, Baze Malbus, AT-ST Pilot

75201 First Order AT-ST

The first and only First Order AT-ST we have seen in the form of LEGO was a huge disappointment to the fans. Honestly, I have the same opinion and to me personally, the only positive thing about this set is the minifigure selection which includes Captain Phasma and Undercover Finn & Rose.

Now, let’s take a look at why this set was a disappointment to so many people. First of all, this price for 370 pieces is not good. Although LEGO has been increasing the prices continuously in the latest years, this particular set honestly feels like a total rip-off.

Next, we will discuss the design of this set. What caused a negative backlash? I personally think that LEGO made a huge mistake when they decided to create this form of the AT-ST. If you remember, BB-8 steals a walker and as soon as he made it walk forward, literally half of the AT-ST was ripped off. This is exactly what we received in the box. Not the original complete First Order AT-ST but the one that was ripped apart. And honestly, it does not look that good as a final product.

Overall, this is the only AT-ST set in this list that I would not recommend to anyone. However, this is simply a personal opinion and yours might be the opposite.

Year: 2018

Piece Count: 370

75254 AT-ST Raider

Released on Triple Force Friday this new look AT-ST was featured in the TV Series The Mandalorian. This particular AT-ST was recovered from the remnant of the Empire by the Klatooninians. They drastically customised the AT-ST which is why it now sports brown leg and one red leg. It also has the Klatooinian clan symbols painted on the front. 

Other than that this AT-ST is pretty much identical in every way to the 75153 AT-ST Walker in terms of bricks and build.

At the time of writing this is the only set that you can get the actual Mandalorian minifigure. Cara Dune and two Klatooninians are also included.

Final Thoughts

Now that you have seen all of the LEGO AT-ST sets between 2001 and 2019, can you name one that caught your attention the most?

If I had to choose, I would definitely pick one between the UCS AT-ST and the version from the Battle of Endor. I believe that the UCS model is the one that best replicates the real walker from the movies. In addition, I find the version from the Battle of Endor to be the most accurate out of all the regular-sized models we have received throughout the years.

In the end, I think that every LEGO Star Wars fan should have at least one AT-ST in their collection. It is one of the most iconic Imperial military vehicles and a fan favorite to many.
