    Folks:

    This guy is currently starring in my Blurry Robot Theater, and is the result of a bunch of coincidences and a few half-baked ideas:

    1. Spychangers are cool...how can they be given more play value?

    2. TF Built To Rule was disappointing, Joe BTR was nifty.

    3. Hey, K mart has cheap Lego clonebricks in olive drab!

    Workmanship is...debatable,but I think the concept works well.

    Carblast is equipped with two door hardpoints QD and one roof hardpoint QR. Accessories shown above are: a-Ion Thrusters/Cannons, b-Twin Beam Cannon (swivel base), c-Transdimensional Radio Unit, d-Rocket Pods, e-Caterpillar Treads.

    A lot of modes are available by rearranging or reattaching these elements.

    For instance:

    Patrol Carblast - QD:a,a; QR:d,d. Can be placed as desired in bot mode

    Armor Carblast - QD:e,e; QR:b. Not really meant for bot mode. Treads provide stable platform for heavy turret cannon. (I neglected to photograph this one)

    Carblast Heavyarms - Absurdly overgunned mode using all parts - start with Armor Carblast and add all remaining weapons and radio unit.

    Recon Carblast - QD:a,a; QR:c. Has radio for communications and thrusters for quick getaways and short flights. Radio pack is reconfigured slightly for bot mode (antenna moved)

    Carblast with Tank Drone - QR: d,d. All other parts assembled into radio-controlled tank drone. Useful for backup, exploration, and times when Carblast's Power Tie (TM) is at the cleaners' and he can't use it to access subspace storage.

    HA! That is genius. And ripe for pilfering for some actual serious use...

    AC:

    Right. He wouldn't think twice about burning the whole place down.

    His tie, should anybody want to make one, is a piece of white electrical tape, polka-dotted with a Sharpie. It's easily removable.
