    Check this out. If you look at the picture you can see grooves on it's side and they match up with the lines in Mr. K's picture between the flanges in the same exact spot! I crudley filled them in with Photoshop.

    And there is a matching slot directly above the flange we see in the same exact spot where it should be. I have no doubt it's a walker foot!

    Yeah. It all matches up to an AT-AT foot. Bad Robot even teased us with an AT-AT at the start of the year.

    Maybe a wrecked AT-AT is partially covered by a dune.

    Pretty much confirmation that we're going to Tatooine then. So is this foot going to be from an old destroyed AT-AT or will we have an imperial force controlling Tatooine. Finally some hard evidence to discuss. It's going t be a fun ride from here on in.

    So let me get this straight Gambit, you think it's a walker foot right?

    It's most definitely an AT-AT foot.
    Perhaps it will be used in a scene where our characters find something of importance to the story inside an abandoned AT-AT husk on Tatooine. I couldn't imagine the AT-AT would be operational, what with the Empire having been gone for 30 years? Or perhaps the Empire was never really gone (as some rumors have stated) and this AT-AT is indeed fully operational and will be giving our heroes a run for their money? So many possibilities. This is fun!

    yep its a fullsize AT-AT foot for the obvious full size AT-AT there building for a scene set in Tatooine.
    The fact it looks exactly like part of an oil pipeline is just coincidence...

    It almost has to be. It is not a complete foot- the side of it has been flattened to give the illusion that it's about 3 feet in the ground. Look at the workers' feet. They're pushing it, not rolling it. That walker has been tipped...so long ago that it's embedded itself 3 feet into Tatooine dune.

    Gives the suggestion there at one time was a Battle of Tatooine.

    (somebody is getting so fired for this...)

    maybe it's an actual fully operational at-at? once they're done filming, they get long oil, roll into saudi, and start shooting the place up?

    it's one way to finance the movie

    Maybe this is a walker foot but we can't sure this is a filming location for Tatooine. Could be a desolate area of another planet. Maybe with some added special effects it will be made to look quite different from a Tatooine landscape.

    Here's my interpretation:

    EDIT: Also a good chunk of the bottom of the foot is missing. My guess is this is gonna be used for shots on the ground with actors. If this is indeed tatooine, maybe they are after Luke?

    YES! YES! This is what I'm talking about. But we need to go even more down the rabbit hole. Its time to bring out some mechanical engineers from MIT.

    I know at least one of you guys has already built a life size working mockup.

    I came into this thread all "Here we go again. Someone posts an image of a round thing that may or may not be from the set and everyone imagines it's an AT-AT foot. What a bunch of...Say, that really does look like an AT-AT foot!" Seriously, after looking at this comparison, that's an AT-AT foot. Based on the way they built the prop with detail on the bottom, it appears that the AT-AT will be appearing on it's side (probably sleeping) or maybe they plan to hoist it from a crane or something for some stomping action. Good idea to bring back the fairly iconic AT-AT even if it's just for a Krayt Dragon skeleton like cameo.

    Nah, it's from the battle of Hoth - we just never saw the summers there.

    i was skeptical when i first saw the pic this morning...but the more I look at it....especially with the comparisons....I honestly can't see how it isn't an AT-AT foot...and one that is supposed to look buried in the sand at that...

    and the fact that they're moving it out of the tent would indicate that the tent is possibly the on site prop department...

    the buildings and such that are around are from 'BYRNE' an equipment, building and tool hire place in Abu Dhabi...the sort of company a film production might require the services of....

    http://www.byrnerental.com/en/section/solutions

    it all sort of fits....

    and I guess it's not a given that it's tatooine...but that's the fun of guessing isn't it?
