AT-ST Turns Up on A38 Near Ashburton (UK)

15 feet tall AT-ST turns up on side of road on the A38, near Ashburton in Devon — and nobody knows why (it’s NOT a speed camera)!

Your mind wasn’t playing Jedi Mind Tricks, you really DID drive past a full-scale Star Wars prop on the A38.

Despite its scale and detail, mystery surrounds the arrival of the home-made ‘AT-ST’ from the film saga near Ashburton.

The All-Terrain Scout-Transport (or Scout Walker), an iconic vehicle from the mind of director George Lucas, sprang up in the last few weeks on a stretch of the busy road.

The stunning prop, which appears to be around 15 feet tall, will have already been seen by thousands of commuters and holidaymakers.

Despite being perched near the entrance to Westcountry Storage Solutions, they swear it’s not theirs.

Instead, they suggest it belongs to Parkers Farm – who own the patch of land it surveys passing traffic from.

“It’s a bit of a mystery,” added a spokesperson for the firm.
