ANNOUNCING NEW COSTUMES OF THE BATTLE OF HOTH’S HEAVY HITTERS!
They hang out with General Veers, they drive one of the coolest vehicles in the galaxy, and they can blast snowspeeders with ease. AT-AT drivers — Imperial soldiers trained to steer massive transports of destruction — are awesome. Now, thanks to ANOVOS’ Empire-approved new ensemble, available for pre-order, Star Wars costumers can wear screen-accurate outfits made famous by the Rebel-base destroyers.
With a design based on the threatening TIE fighter pilot gear from Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, combined with more pronounced elements of the classic stormtrooper look, the AT-AT driver outfit is familiar but unique — and singularly of the Empire. For their new ensemble, ANOVOS went straight to the source — the Lucasfilm Archives — to study actual artifacts from Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, in which the AT-AT drivers made their debut during the Battle of Hoth. And the suit features all the hardware and soft goods seen in the film. With ANOVOS’ AT-AT Driver ensemble, you will feel ready to take on the entire Rebellion yourself.

This is a really cool item for those who want to own an AT-AT helmet. This is for the whole costume of course, but they will offer the helmet an armor fairly soon, like they’ve done with everything else. From what I know, its going to be a modified MonCal design, who is pretty well known throughout the prop community.
