for brikwars..
hm..
Modify the drill to make it a large lazar cannon, that way you have a giant mobile weapon.
of course, we were ALL thinking that.
I just got to it first.

It needs a bunch of smaller guns on the head and legs to supplement the main cannon.  A Hero could run underneath it, avoid the stomping legs, jump up onto the body, and kill the pilot or foul up some vital mechanism.  Besides, having it charge through a swarm of enemy infantry with its guns blazing would be too awesome a sight to pass up.  Other than that, this is probably the most Brikwars-compatible Mars Mission set ever.

I saw this one the last time I was in the LEGO store and almost picked it up. It is very cool-looking and is an impressive size to boot!

There is another Mission to Mars set that they just came out with that has a small-sized mech in it. I just laughed to myself because it reminded me of the hardsuit threads on this board.

personally, I would rather see it charge through a swarm of enemy infantry as is. The giant drill would also solve the first problem you mentioned. In a pinch, it should be able to launch the drill like a missile and then self destruct.
