    (WIP)

    I just found Heavytread two days ago. Damn. That thing is awesome. Great robot mode, cool tank mode, and not a Movie-former. Perfect. It was just screaming out for this, so i bought a second one yesterday and after screwing up the first attempt, i cut it down, and made this. I'm going to import some lifting forks from the Netherlands for this guy, right after i design them. ;)

    Oops, jumped the gun. It's supposed to be a transformer version of this:

    I've just uploaded the forks i designed, inspired by this, to Shapeways, so hopefully they'll be here soon to finish the bash.

    And i took the last two off the peg. :D 

    EDIT: I only modded the second one. The other one I have here proudly being played with. It's an awesome toy. Groundspike is okay too.

    On another note, I attached the second Ground Spike to the front of Panic Attack, and it now lost a leg. The ball joint stem broke. Surprise surprise, stupid fragile polycarbonate. Damn you Hasbro QC. I hate you for a) Sandstorm being fragile (it would've been an epic toy otherwise :(  ) and b) making polycarbonate (I.e. Clear) figures. I know I'm overreacting, but damn. I'm disappointed.

    That said, HEAVYTREAD IS AWESOME. BUY ONE. NAO. ;)
