Happy New Year, Big Brother Is Watching You…


Another one of my gifts from Chocolate Snowflake was the All Terrain Scout Transport from Star Wars Eps.5 and 6. The AT-ST was featured heavily in the battle for Endor during Ep.6 when we got to see what the inside of the vehicle’s cockpit looked like.

The AT-ST looks like the NYPD’s ‘SkyWatch’ system which has been deployed in poor neighborhood’s throughout the city. The devices are ominously aggressive looking even though they are touted as surveillance equipment in the neighborhoods they have been deployed.


I don’t think it’s a stretch to imagine the SkyWatch devices being outfitted with a traction chasis, possibly from a tank or some other military industrial vehicle and of course some kind of cannon.

I wonder if the NYPD SkyWatch seats two(2) operators like the AT-ST?


Or will the Galactic Empire make the SkyWatch a single-operator vehicle like the T.I.E. fighters?


I got my eyes on this company ICx Technology Tactical Systems.

They definitely have their eyes on me.
