@Silent: Any progress on that fire truck? It's freaking cool.
I sat down tonight with the intention of building a minifig-sized mechanical centaur. I built two legs, and realized I didn't have the parts available for the other two. So it became upright. Then it just kind of grew and, well, it's not really minifig-sized anymore.
The only things remaining of the original concept are the legs, which clearly didn't grow with the rest of the mech, and the fact that it has a lance.
Also the head is held together with pure 100% bullshit. It's just stupid.
