    Hey guys, it's me again. That's right, Treadshot A1, back from his exams and trying desperately to concentrate on anything except studying right now. :lol 

    So anyway, i just go this guy in the mail the other day, and i'm glad to say everything works. Wrecking Ball Robo is the result of what happens when you spend way too much time on a game and end up getting whacked over the head with a spiked ball a few too may times. Honestly, somehow when i played Gotcha Force, i always got hit by massive spiked balls. So annoying. Anyways, i set out to make a toy which could do exactly that: hurl a spiked ball, and hopefully crush something in its way. If you watch the video, you'll find out that apparently throwing a ball is not as easy as it sounds. ;) 

    Wrecking Ball Robo, aside from being the epitome of creatively-named robots :) lol), includes all the articulation that's expected. Ball joints for ankles, knees, hips, a waist, shoulders, elbows and two joints per wrist (one per claw). That's right, his claws actually move independently, so he can open and close his claws to grasp the huge wrecking ball. I've also tried to detail it as much as i could. On his chest, "IRON BALL" and "T-489" are engraved, and his waist piece says "04-15". I must state here that the toy is not made from iron, no matter what the words say. ;) 

    Anyways, here's the build video, so you guys know how to assemble Wrecking Ball Robo.

    This is just as awesome as the other Gotcha Force members you've been designing. I can't recall their names, but do you plan on making the main character's and rival's borgs?

    Amazing what a paint job can do! :) 

    Thanks. Currently i have GFX-03 Red Crash Robo almost ready for printing, and i'm working on a few other characters as well. My thread in Fan Art has renders of all my upcoming toys. :) 

    :lolol 

    I'd love to see the result of that. :thumb
