Maximilian Veers was an elite Imperial Officer that was most notable for his actions on Hoth, where he led the Thundering Herd AT-AT squadron and the Snowtrooper Blizzard Force to victory against the Rebel Alliance and destroyed their base, causing them to flee. He also served the Imperial Remnant, and later Grand Admiral Thrawn used him as a cloning template for his new clone Stormtroopers.
General Veers first appeared in the video game LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, in 2006. However, he only appears in a cut-scene, as his AT-AT approaches the Echo Base, he is not a playable character. In 2007, Veers then appeared in the video game LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, however once again only appearing in this cut-scene, still not appearing as a playable character.
In 2010, a re-designed minifigure of General Veers appeared in the set 8129 AT-AT Walker. This was the last set that Veers has appeared in to date.
