    But with that budget you'd think they could've rigged up some web-shooting action.

    I wonder how it does on uneven terrain... that is the whole point of a spider walker.

    Otherwise you are just making a vehicle for a supervillain.

    That is one of the coolest - and at the same time, kinda creepiest - vehicle I've ever laid my eyes on!

    Now we need one that's 20 feet tall, and armed with cannons...

    That's too awesome, even has a creepy walk.

    That would scare the shit out of me on the street. And if the guy was wearing a Kamen rider helmet

    So, if Rednecks are stupid, and it took a lot of ingenuity to build something like this...doesn't that indicate that maybe these people MAY NOT BE Rednecks...?

    The plans for those legs have been available online for a few years, and it's remarkably simple. I myself made a set out of cardboard, they're an ingenious design. They were originally designed for a bicycle, which makes it even cooler.

    Ridiculously inefficient and it takes a full minute to make a left turn, but hey, SPIDER TANK.
