TUMBLEWEED
Quoting Matt David:In case you havenít noticed, MA forces love wheels. The bigger the better"... You got it boss! I think it's safe to say that this thing has the biggest wheel Mandatory Arbitration will ever see. This all started off as a joke (sparked by the comment above)but it gradually evolved into a ever so slightly serious project. I'll let the pictures do the talking.
About this creation

front.


side.


The front guns are a combination of machine guns and large caliber weapons. (I'm no military expert)


Rocket launchers are located at the back. Good for taking care of more heavily armored pests.


These wheel pods (as i like to call them) make this vehicle impossible to flip.


The elevated cabin makes deploying troops fairly slow. Fortunately, these things are just so intimidating that the enemy usually retreats before the troops are needed.


The hatch open.


Of coarse, it needs a license plate...


I decided to give this thing some playability. So, the two side walls can be removed.


The top floor is where the troops sit. It can seat seven people.


And a driver.


This is a ladder design that i stole from Master Shifu Leo J. it's nice and compact, so it doesn't take up too much space.


Before this thing hits the battlefield, it needs to be tested.


I think it's pretty obvious that this thing is perfect for running things over...


This is a shot taken before the weapons were tested... Unfortunately, the explosion was so intense the camera melted. Now imagine what it did to the dummy!

Interestingly designed battle piece of military weaponry. Small profile from head on. I expect to see Lucas incorporate this into the Clone Wars so that he can sell it. Looks mighty Star Wars-esque. In a good way

Personally I hate tumbleweeds as they are one of the most obnoxious plants I have ever encountered. But for some reason I like this one, perhaps because it is not covered in thorns. Great job on the interior.

Well done Jason. The tread is fantastic, as well as the design on the wheel pod. Plus, playability just adds to it even more. Is there a group for this MA? Cause dark grey and yellow just look so good together. -Sam

So the theme is called "Mandatory Arbitration" now? Me like--very menacing-ish. About the MOC: Large wheel-based vehicles are always cool...and the stabilizing wheel-pods make it just plausible enough to be...uh...plausible. I love the interior, too. A few more pipe-like things in there would be nice, but it's minor. I'll never know where you get all these gray tiles...What would be awesome is if you could get permission to use the Csek dudes from Dawn Forge, and the other guy could use the yellow stripe and gray color scheme. A thought...Anyways, as usual, the commentary had me rolling on the floor. And the flattened dummy was nice. Anyone in particular it represented? Phipson, perhaps? Ciao, and Most Sweet.

I just thought of something. Since this is basically one giant wheel, that means it technically would have a ground clearance of infinity. It would also have infinite approach and departure angles. By George, Canadian, you've built the ideal off-road machine: a giant wheel!

Heavens. You've certainly got intimidation going for you there. I, too, am going to have to steal that ladder design for something, and I love the interior in general. Given how long it would take to get everyone out, maybe it could be for shuttling important people around. Sorta the 22nd century equivalent of an armored limo.

Wow this is awsome. I love al the detail and greebling.... Ya know what could possibly make this better... If the wheel pod things could seperate from the main vehicle and become their own seperate remote controlled vehicle...that would maximize playability. (well atleast in my opinion). Anywho great build.

LOL! The second-to-last sentence is really funny, and did you know that you put the central caterpillar track in backwards? Cool ladder I'll counter-steal that idea. How big is it?

I love you. In a completely straight way. The build is ridiculous, yes, but quite sexy. I am also quite jealous, because I too decided to take a chance and buy a "mystery bag" minfig, hoping to get a crash dummy, but instead getting a freaky clown. I love how you ran him over.
