you should have them be exploding arrows, like in Dukes of Hazzard or Turok.

These are inspired!


Thanks! Glad you think so, and we totally put them up figuring you guys would be able to make some awesome guys with'm. Rambo.. definitely fits, space warriors awesome.

Forestmen probably aren't the best of choices, but it's what's in our little fantasy world, and we would love to see better uses and more awesome guys!

Thanks again guys for the comments!

I can't quite see how the minifigs are holding the bows, can anyone take a picture of the assembly?

Maybe I missed it somewhere but... what parts, exactly, do you need to do this?

Thanks Hobo!

So you use two arms with one zip line handle at each end? Then put the little antenna in between the mechanical arms?

AMIRITE?

yes dude, look at the picture. or, if that fails, build one and try stuff out. Maybe you'll come up with something cooler.

If it was as easy as looking at the fawk'n picture I wouldn't have asked. Those pics aren't exactly clear to me and my eye sight sucks... the black is all blurred together there... I can't tell if it's two mechanical arms or just one; hence why I ask if it's two.

I actually did try to recreate something similar with parts I had at home lastnight.... before I saw this reply to know it was two mechanical arms. I used one mechanical arm with two of these

Image

Then put a black round stud on each side.

Looked neat but a the mechanical arm is too thin to be held by a minifig hand. Tried putting two arms on there but there's not enough width on the underside of the 1x1 plate to allow both arms to clip in properly.

Was not able to recreate the epic awesomeness with those 1x1 light clips.

Yep, I had the same experiance. I found you need the two so you can "pin" the hand between the two mechanical arms. :D

Now I just need to either buy some of those zip line handles or find something as a substitute.... so far haven't found a good substitute. Will have to dig around some more before I buy anything.

This has deserved a front-page feature for a while now. It is about time I got around to it.
