A MOC based on the Exo-Force mobile defence tank sub frame.
The world's most dangerous areas of scientific interest are no longer inaccessable thanks to the UNI-POD Geo Explorer variant.
This tracked super-cradle boasts some of the most advanced heat retardent armour and a sophisticated individual 4 way track drive system that alows the Uni-Pod Geo Explorer to literally 'think' it's way along a predetermined path.
Loaded with a vareity of scientific equipment pallets and a sample return tray, there's not much the Geo Explorer can't handle.
It is equipped with a state-of-the-art ressonance imaging system that can take alpha, x and radio wave images of the world around it and it utilises a tungsten toothed excavator scoop to retrive soil, rock and plant samples for analisys.
Volcanoes, forests, the Arctic tundra, the Uni-Pod Geo Explorer is capable of traversing all of them with ease.
wow... this thing is awesome, and perfect for geological surveys! I was wondering if maybe there could be instructions on constructing the pod for the UNI-POD cradles? I'd love to try some ideas with it :)

Another winner Bob! Great design and consistent color scheme. I wonder what's next for the unipod.
Very nice Sir Fluxxus! I see you went for the treads instead of legs in the original design. They would offer greater flexibility and spread the vehicle's weight out over a larger area than legs. Would've loved to have seen the crab idea's eye stalks but still looks terrific!
Pretty sweet Bob...the overall shape and mechanics are great and the way that scoop tucks in there is very skillful. The only thing I might say is the track pods look a bit unfinished or under detailed or something but that's just the anti-stud snob in me talking.;-) Nice work as usual!
Another nice addition, Bob. Love the extendable/retractible claw. I've got an environment, though, that'll give that beast a run for it's money...my eldest son's bedroom. Let's see what that thing can do!
