You may remember this big yellow machine. The first version was a bit simplified and cartoonish. I tried to improve it and make it look more realistic, thanks to your advices, too :-$

So, here is a general view of V.2
Posted Image
As Stauer notices elsewhere, I changed the crawlers, but didn't change them into wheels; I just added one gear for support.

The front portion and the blade were changed, too.
Posted Image
Now the blade can be oriented and the supports can be extended.

The new cockpit has a less bulky design and
Posted Image
a moveable seat
Posted Image

To end this review, the exaust pipe is smaller, and better looking near the cockpit

Comments & Critics are appreciated ;-)

Yes, I got the same impression of yellowiness, someway X-D

I'm glad you like my little additions :-$

You can find those tracks in the Exo-Force 8118 Hybrid Rescue Tank *wub*

Hmm, remind me to get that set, so I can kill three baby birds with one very large stone by;
A) Getting your torso
B) Those treads and other neat pieces
C) My first two human characters

Anyhoo, great updation LuxorV, I love the new design, especially for the exhaust and shovel  *y*
The cockpit (?) looks much better and more realistic now, and the little greebs look cool too.
My one criticism is that I think the cockpit (?) needs a bit of yellow at the front to make it mesh better.

whoa.. dats a wide bulldozer.. 12-wide right?

Nice though! maybe can make the front "engine part" a bit more rounder.. coz it looks a bit boxy. other than that, GREAT! it would be cool to see it in action though.. I never seen pnumatic sets b4.

Considering that you used minimal/no Technic pieces, very good!  10/10.

What!?! You don't have any EF human character, yet 8-  But they have beautiful battlemachines ('06 and some '07 ones, I mean).

The cabin (or cockpit ;-) ) is all black to stand apart, but I must admit a bit of yellow would help there *y*

Yes, it's 12 wide, and it's just barely enough to match the treads.

Don't tell anyone, but the pneumatic pieces are there only for aesthetics; they don't work, cause I would have had to rebuilt the entire vehicle to add a working pneumatic system |-/ .
Next time, I'll try to be less lazy :-P

I agree with Asuka!

I like it, the working front end is clever, the moveable seat is also interesting, however I would prefer it in all yellow, with some grey. 8-|

Great job though! *y*

Thanks for your comments, Lord Of Pies :-$
