AT-AT Driver Costume by ANOVOS – Preview

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. Check out a special preview gallery below!

Here’s everything included in the ensemble:

  • Helmet with finished, lined interior and adjustable helmet suspension rig, meant for even the largest heads.
  • Built-in environmental / air system in helmet for comfort.
  • Bubble lenses installed in helmet.
  • Chest armor and chest box, with flexible hoses.
  • Canisters on end of hoses feature magnetic points, thereby allowing easy attachment to the magnetic points at the helmet’s back “mohawk” for easy maintenance.
  • Chest box features functional LED screen, mirroring faux indicator functionality of artifacts as used on screen.
  • Back armor with distinctive computer-board style.
  • 100% polyester gray jumpsuit, with pockets and zip-front.
  • Lower-leg harness connected to back plate.
  • Faux leather gloves. Left glove features greeble, as seen from original artifact.

Note: Boots and AT-AT are not included due to current licensing agreement.

Construction Details

  •  High-quality ABS plastic armor pieces with finished undersides, backs, and interiors — no unfinished parts to this uniform.
  • Gray armor coloring, inspired by the actual artifacts as used in the production of The Empire Strikes Back.
  • 100% polyester one-piece coverall jumpsuit, with details inspired from artifacts.
  • Gloves patterned from artifacts and replicated using faux leather.

In addition to the AT-AT Driver ensemble, ANOVOS has also opened pre-orders for costumes (and the standalone helmet) of the Empire’s cold weather killers: Snowtroopers.
