I've seen Crawlers at Target (last year) at the same time I picked up Dwarfs Mining. Pretty sure it's $50, which is in my humble opine, too damn much. I'd also like to point out that I've had a set within the last year (Skeleton Attack Ship thing) that had a bag missing. Bought it at TrU as well, took it back and got a set with all the parts.

Do you have two miniguns mounted on the sides?

Because I'm interested, how big is your tank?

nnno. no miniguns, although those look EXACTLY like the binocular-style guns.

i measured it out to be about 9" long, pre-treads. i'll probably end up taking a picture of it, even though i still lack treads.

Sweet, so what kind of tank will it be? big oversized tank of awesome? or Yellow Jacket? The Queen Bee? something I can't think of?

I bet once it gets made there will be about 17 posts debating whether or not it is actually a tank.

Hold on, Despite the off topicness of this, IV is the Tank Snob. I don't care who argues with him, he wins (if only in his own mind.)
