Heck, I want to build one for a game session now!

not knocking it, if i could, id build one myself, it would make commuting to work so much easier. god help who ever cuts me off in traffic, lol.

Sorry, didn't mean to sound like I was taking it personally. If I ever come across like that, I'm not mad or anything. I'm just one of those guys who have that New York attitude and cut to the point. :)

How to power the legs and fuel them, I don't really know.

i think you would run it on hydrolics. i would also say that the legs that are tied in together would have to be on a diagonal axis, front left to rear right, ect... if you did both right and both left together, it would most likely just fall over when taking a step.

also, you could leave the bucket on the front if you had the proper counter balance on the rear.

needless to say, i want one, lol.

and Xenoman, its no problem man, i wasnt worried, lol.

I wasn't imagining it being able to move the legs very far. Tiny old tractor motors won't do much for ya there.

Just a slow, inching, pink deathmachine.
