AT-AT Studio Model

As it is told to me, these are the photos MR had taken of the studio AT-AT from The Empire Strikes Back in the Lucasfilm Archives! As further told to me, and as you can see in the photos, the neck was quite something. When trying to position the head for measurements, and due to over 25 years passing by, the neck paint broke open and the resin neck part was found to be liquefied! Only the hardened paint was holding together! An amazing story if true!
