Escape Velocity is once again shaping up to be an epic experience for Sci Fi fans this Spring.

The latest addition to the event’s Gallery will be a life-size reproduction of one of the snowspeeders used by the Rebel Alliance during the battle of Hoth in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. These two-seater, modified T-47 airspeeders included a harpoon gun used to disable the approaching AT-AT Walkers.
