AT-AT: The Ghetto Files

Ever wonder what would happen to an out of commission AT-AT when left in a bad part of town? Unlikely scenario, I know (those punks on Hoth blew everything up, there wasn't much to deface) but bear with me. Check out this super cool modded Hasbro toy.
Isn't that so cool? All of the graffiti is in Aurabesh (the large graffiti on the side spells out "REBEL") and I love the little rebel tags everywhere. I wish there were more pictures of the other sides, but I think you can get the general idea. Stick it to the empire, guys!

This item sold at Christie's for $1250. Let me tell you, if I had that kind of money I would have snatched this up in a second, I think it's so cool. I have a thing for AT-ATs though, I just love them. Just wanted to share with everyone!
