A couple years ago I picked up the UCS Batmobile for 50% off. I didn't have much interest in building the actual model, but I used the pieces to build some alternate models. I first rounded up all the pieces that were not grey or black and tried to see how colorful I could make something from a set that was mostly monotone. The result was the Twortise

100% Awesome. It even has two tails

Then I looked at the remaining pieces and knew that the 4x4 dishes with the Batman insignia had to be the eyes. I first made a really creepy Pogo Bat thing but my friends told me that was too creepy, so that eventually evolved into a spider.

I'm really proud of the face.

These have been sitting around on my shelf for acouple years now collecting dust. I thought it was time I photographed them. Those dark red curved slopes on the Twortise are looking mighty appealing after all... :devil:

Hello!

Well, I don't know what a Twortise is at all but I know what a Tortoise is. Which is the only similar word that came to mind. :classic: Maybe you can shed some light on that?

The spider is clearly recognizable as member of its species. The barbed hooks on the legs look threatening as they should. :wink:

Cheers,

Yes, perhaps I should have explained that better. The Twortise is supposed to be a two-sided turtle/tortise. One half is robotic and the other half is fiery. It's hard to make out, but I tried to create a shell shaped body. The heads are a little weird though. :sceptic:

NOWWWWWWWWWW i see it :grin: and i thought the tails were the heads...

perhaps it wouldve been more recognizeable with a two-face tortoise head, one side red and the other side gray...ok now i see which batman character drives the twortoise.
