Wow, I agree with the guy below me, those curved tracks are a masterpiece! And they are also freaking me out, too...

I've just relized that in my haste of realizing I've forgotten to comment, that I forgot to comment. Those curvy tracks are freaking me out, man. What's really cool about that is it would actually be plausible (if the mechanical side of my brain is functioning properly)...

WHAT!? I swear I had already commented on this. I explicitly remember doing so! That means you must have deleted it to make me feel like a forgetful chump! I'm on to you. It's a conspiracy! A CONSPIRACY I TELL Y....wait...wait yeah actually I definitely remember looking at this and not commenting.... Uhmm....wanna get some pizza?

This is still funny, Dude! Is is still on the dinning room table? Anywho, you've missed a bit of action, but I see you've joined the MOCies. And it's easy enough for just about anyone to come up with a long form birth certificate, so don't sweat it! Later, Chief!

Quoting MR. LEGO Bye Tom!
Thanks. I'm going to try and check in every few weeks. And I suspect I will not be able to resist building something once in a while. But my builds are likely to be quite modest, except for a castle project I'm sharing with my son.

Reminds me of Big-Track (remember those?) from childhood, IF it had been possessed by a vicious gremlin ready to eat the face off the family cat. Loving how your inactivity is more active than my activity mate.

This is incredibly inventive! Now I'm no physics major, but I think this could actually work fine. It would rip the living Shire out of the ground as it moved, but it should maneuver just fine. Those hairy footed Hobbits don't have a chance!

Quoting jason corlett Vicious looking little bugger! I'm loving the curve on the tracks (that can't be good for them, though).
I only went as far as the easy give in the parts. I'm not straining them.

Quoting Dr. HappyBaboon , PhD Do the treads actually work at that angle?
I have not tried it, but suspect there are too many frictions that would make it unpractical.

Tom Simon April 5, 2011 Quoting I think you all are agreeing with me that the Nazgul were over rated. See The Boner for the shortcomings of armored warfare in the Misty Mountains, though.

Hey! Now we are getting on to something here. I think you all are saying this thing might have a really excellent turning radius. That's a point. To answer Moodswim: they are small and cute. Anything else?

Quoting Christopher Baldacci Nice, but if Sauron had tread technology and the means to create mobile tanks, LOTR would have gone like this: "Once upon a time Frodo walked out of his hobbit hole, nearly soiled himself and ran back inside. Then everyone ran away to the Grey Havens and smuggled themselves on Elven ships to get away. THE END." LOL. Nice tank though!
It's cold hard sense like yours that Tolkien had to stay well away from in order to get through his work. I kind of like your version.

Quoting Luke Chapman I was also expecting "armored terrestrial system for mechanized, combined arms, initiative seizing doctrines" to form some filthy acronym, but no?
Sorry about that. Sometimes my reputation exceeds my cleverness.
 I like it 
  April 5, 2011
HAHA! I agree with the tread arguments. This thing would just spin in circles, which may or may not scare the s--t out of those Hobbits. And what did Hobbits do to you anyway?
 I like it 
  April 5, 2011
I'm with you Tom.. when something looks this cool it doesn't matter if it works! Of course, if the tracks curved in parallel it might (in circles..)

Quoting Hans DendauwNPD ~H
Always leave it to giggles to show us the way. I like the chewing towards the mouth thing. Very organic and dynamic.
 I like it 
  April 5, 2011
Perhaps I should clarify: the crazy, seemingly impossible tread, actually makes me think of magic. Black Magic that is. In my mind I see the tread chewing up the ground and bringing it inward toward the 'mouth', dragging with it any fleeing Brandybucks. Of course, I'm just chillin' with Giggles, so I see all kinds of stuff in my mind. =P ~H

Now that is one ugly machine! I see hobbits running in terror from that beast!

Quoting El Barto ! Have you tried loose dirt? I bet it would work in that.
I think we are actually converging on a solution. It can skate on lubricating hobbit guts. How about that?

Quoting Cody G ...Grind them? It does eat stuff after all. Doesn't really rhyme though. Drive, dive, knive, deprive, revive, alive, arrive...
Actually, I kind of like grind to close it out. Thanks Cody.

Quoting El Barto ! I bet the tracks work in the snow! Did you try that? I would try it.
Not if the meat of the hobbits is chocking the tracks. Wait, that was more of a Russian thing.

One sprocket to rule them all, one sprocket to drive them. One sprocket to engage, and in the mud, (somebody finish this for me.) Shazam! I'll go with Hans' Black Magic!

Just read the write up people. It's only 2 paragraphs. The crazy tracks are a poke at my wife.

  April 5, 2011
Quoting El Barto ! Fascinating! Do those treads really work? And where's the driver? Is his seat in the 'taint?
Yes, the tracks work. They were supposed to be a conversation starter ... The "mouth" at the bow is purely visual, to scare the hobbits. The top hatch is for the commander. The rear orifice is the access hatch for crew and passangers.
 I made it 
  April 5, 2011
I thought the write up made things clear, but I guess not. The tracks are pure fantasy for visual wow, like several of Nannan's. The tracks were never meant to work or make physical sense in any way. Geez, people. Some leeway for imagination.
 I like it 
  April 5, 2011
I'm guessing that this doesn't roll very well, but the unusual shape definitely makes this a unique build. Crazy!
 I like it 
  April 5, 2011
Like Blake, I am a bit confused by the treads functionality while intrigued by it's unique shape...it's Black Magic! Too bad you don't have minifigs; it would be great to see this thing consuming some fresh Took.~H

The treads are incredibly confusing! pointing inwards? Geez. While being physically non-efficient it looks great!
