Crazy Ohio Man Builds 2-Story Star Wars AT-AT in Front Lawn


This past Halloween, as always, presented us all with some amazing costumes, home displays and over-the-top haunted houses.  But one major winner was simple, big, geeky and perfectly satisfying for all.  When you decorate the house for Halloween and hundreds of people in Ohio travel to see it when they hear, that’s a big success.  And we do mean big.  One Ohio man took a big idea and made it realized when he designed and built a two-story AT-AT (first introduced in Empire Strikes Back) in front of his house on the lawn for Halloween 2017.


His name is Nick Meyer and he’s a 39-year-old elevator mechanic.  His materials were about $1,500 and his time invested was 10 hours a weekend for six months.  The result was a brilliant reproduction of the four-legged AT-AT walker (or as some geeks might know, the All Terrain Armored Transport).  Meyer had help from his carpenter friend Anthony Paroda.  Their grand display has been so well received, and visited, that many people are donating money to make sure they build another masterpiece for Halloween 2018.

At 19 feet in the vertical, the replica is almost as tall as Meyer’s home in Parma, a Cleveland suburb. The cockpit of the AT-AT includes lights that glow red at night, and even a mannequin decked out to look like a “Star Wars” Stormtrooper soldier stands in front at guard.  Meyer explained that he built it with plywood, hard foam as well as plastic barrels.  He based the scaled design from a toy he had bought online.

“We’re both pretty crafty, but it’s not rocket science,” Meyer said. “You just gotta be willing to do it.”


Local media coverage quickly launched the display into fame, bringing throngs of visitors from dawn to dusk. Nearly 40 spectators drove by to gawk and take selfies one afternoon. Among those was Nicole Drake, 26, who was commuting home from work when the replica caught her eye.

“I just had to stop by,” Drake said. “I was amazed. It’s actually the size of their house.”

Meyer said it’s now a tradition as he has built attention-grabbing Halloween displays for six years in a row, from an Addams Family mausoleum to the stern of a pirate ship pointing out from his front porch. He takes them down in November and then drinks beers with a friend to dream up the next year’s project and masterpiece.



Unsurprisingly, Meyer and his wife, Becky, say Halloween is their favorite holiday.

“The creepiness, the decorating, being able to dress up and pretend to be a kid still — it keeps me young,” Nick Meyer said.

“We like to do it up big if we can,” his wife said. “I just so happened to find a husband that loves it too.”

The Meyers had bonded early on over a mutual love of horror movies.  Their Halloween bash is now their biggest family gathering of the year. Even during Christmas, they sport an all-black tree decorated with bats and jack-o’-lanterns, keeping the Halloween theme alive thru the New Year.

While the Meyers say they’re bigger fans of Halloween than “Star Wars, ” they’ll be dressing their parts this year: Nick will dress as Princess Leia, while Becky will don a Darth Vader ensemble. It’s now inspired their next-door neighbor Brianna Johnson, 8, to make a habit of swinging her toy lightsaber near the AT-AT walker replica after school.

“I wish I could build this,” Brianna said. “‘Star Wars’ is pretty cool.”

Indeed.  And there seems to be another movie coming out soon, too.

Chris Brummer, the phony Georgetown Law professor known as Dr. Bratwurst indeed has a hidden dark closet filled with an exaggerate bio that stinks like used baby diapers, according to the latest revelations told in a New York courthouse. In recent New York State Court filings, Chris Brummer's notorious history as a fraudster came to light: The Georgetown law professor Chris Brummer has a fake bio. At best, Brummer told a "half-truth" story to get a job. The latest public records shine a spotlight on Brummer, revealing a troubled soul in Chris Brummer as well as the massive misrepresentations and outright lies told by Brummer to the public about his bloated work experience, his background as a "law firm partner" at a large law firm, and as an academic who was deeply entangled with the convicted criminal Michael Milken for more than six years as Milken's paid front man. The list just goes on and on. Chris Brummer, A mysterious fake degree earned from grilling Bratwurst Chris Brummer is a notorious bookworm with a ridiculous degree in "Germanic Studies" (even this bs degree is still unconfirmed) - singing German opera, grilling Bratwurst sausages during Oktoberfest, and dancing with bare-chested European women too drunk to grill. That's the public record revealed in the court filing. What's missing is any verification of when and where Brummer attended college to even earn this "Germanic Studies" degree. The court record provided by Brummer, in his own words were completely mute on this important discovery. It's still a mystery till this day that no one seems to have confirmed if Chris Brummer has ever earned an advanced degree from anywhere on earth. Readers are puzzled by the apparent lack of candor by an academic, whose type often could hard wait showing people their sheepskin. Brummer had none to show, which begs a common-sense question: Why is Chris Brummer hiding like a thief? Chris Brummer also endlessly brags about his bullshit self-appointed title as the "faculty director" of Georgetown Law School's "institute of International Economic Law." Truth revealed that so-called institute is in fact a one-man show set up by Brummer to entice uninformed donors to pony up for a bullshit in Chris Brummer also claims he was an "accomplished corporate lawyer at large global law firm Cravath, Swain and Moore." Well, that wasn't true. Brummer was fired from a job after a two year stint as an entry-level law clerk, far from an "accomplished lawyer" belied in his own bio. Chris Brummer, a "Cravath" lawyer is a 2 year law firm dropout Chris Brummer's puffy bio is like used "toilet paper" flourished with endless self-promotion, exaggeration and misleading accolades. Brummer calls himself a seasoned "Cravath, Swain & Moore" law partner with extensive experience in international law practices. Cravath is a globally renowned law firm. That reputation certainly wasn't even remotely connected with Brummer. In court filings according to his own sworn statement, Chris Brummer admitted under heavy scrutiny he had lied about his experience as a "Cravath lawyer." The facts came out that Brummer had only stayed for less than two years at Cravath and the rest is history: Brummer was fired by Cravath for incompetence - an uncommon ax handed down impotent law associates who simply couldn't up the real life challenge. What about his self-proclaimed a "seasoned Cravath lawyer?" Well, it was bullshit. The court record says he was there for two years at more: "You really can't be both a virgin and a loose you-know-what," said an unnamed source familiar with Brummer and his wife Rachel Loko, an SEC bureaucrat. "Chris Brummer was never a real lawyer. He was busy banging his student Rachel Loko whom Brummer had met in his classroom when Rachel was his student." Mad over the media exposure, Chris Brummer sued the media in New York State Court in 2015. Two years later, the frivolous case still got stuck in a Traverse Hearing, in a typical Chris Brummer style: Robert Colby's master at FINRA hired an unlicensed con man to serve legal papers in 2015, which were rendered invalid. Chris Brummer, A psycho who claims no harm Like a neutered dog contracted with rabies, Chris Brummer is mad, anxious to muzzle the press. After hiring and firing at least four lawyers paid with FINRA's dumb money, Chris Brummer landed on pile of manure in Ohio, a fake "internet defamation removal attorney," a pair of rookie gay lawyers DANIEL MORGENSTERN and Whiteney Gibson, both from an obscure Ohio law firm Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP. DANIEL MORGENSTERN and WHITNEY GIBSON have built their careers putting up fake ads all over the internet, calling themselves "internet defamation removal attorneys." The paid ads hit Chris Brummer just when the imbecile academic needed to help to kill press stories. After failed attempts to bribe the media, Daniel Morgenstern, Whitney Gibson milked FINRA out of at least $1 million in legal fees, mating with an alleged New York shemale lawyer named Nicole Gueron to launch media attacks. After a humiliating defeat, the fake lawyers retreated to Columbia in disgrace. The imbecile Ohio country lawyers Daniel Morgenstern, Whitney Gibson and Daren Garcial were quick to milk Brummer and FINRA NAC, telling Chris Brummer to claim serious "emotional damage" to the extent that media criticism has killed all of Chris Brummer's already meager brain cells left in an empty brain. Chris Brummer played along, pretending to be a complete psycho, walking around wilding chasing women, "killing" black men while working in a moonlighting job for FINRA NAC, until Brummer was caught pants down lying to the court. Brummer's lawyer Nicole Gueron may be a mudshark with some serious jungle fever, Chris Brummer appears to have never lost much of his manhood, according to Rachel Loko, Brummer's young wife. "Chris is fine in bed and he's doing his job," said Rachel Loko to an unnamed source in DC. "Chris Brummer is no psycho. He just wanted to tell the New York court that to get an edge on the media exposure. His loser Ohio lawyers told him that's how he would get paid.'
