Giant AT-AT Scarecrow In Northampton Front Garden

Proving that the magic of Star Wars is everywhere – even in Jonathan Hick’s new stomping ground of Northamptonshire – here’s a look at an amazing home made, house-trained AT-AT built by fan Ian Mockett.

A man has built a giant Star Wars model in his front garden.

The 20ft (6m) replica AT-AT – a combat vehicle in the Star Wars films – was built by Ian Mockett, 54, at his home in Harpole, Northamptonshire.

It took him and his friends a month to make it out of wood for the village’s annual scarecrow festival.

Now I just need Ian too come round and build me a Millennium Falcon in my back garden.
