The Secret Dream of Every Container Crane

According to local lore, George Lucas was inspired to create the AT-AT walkers in "Empire Strikes Back" after looking at the container cranes at the Port of Oakland, California.

 

Is it true? I have no idea. But the folks at www.thegirlandrhino.com/ turned the legend into one very brilliant t-shirt.

 

I bought one for me, and one for the kid.
