I'm not sure if the sappies are afraid of a lightbulb! :grin:
Just joking, but seriously nice job on the details, is this a successor to the TX-130 fighter tank?

Rook, this looks amazing.  I'd buy it in a heartbeat if it showed up on the shelves.  

I don't see anything that I think needs to be changed.  I look forward to your next MOC.  Great job.

That is awesome!!  I love the shot with the laser, you really nailed it.

I thought it was a hover tank at first, but the treads are protected so nicely.

I really like the color scheme too, this is one noce piece of work!!!

Neat. The treads look great, and the laser is a nice touch. I like how you did the front- looks like you already dissassembled your swamp speeder. :grin:

I can't say anything. This is too awesome. I'm afraid that if I say anything, Eurobricks will collapse from the amount of praise mixed with awesomeness in one topic. :thumbup: :tongue:

That's great, Rook! I love it! Great use of those stickered parts, and the inclusion of the light brick is indeed a nice touch!
Keep it up!

Another Brilliant MOC from a brilliant builder!  I must say I am a huge mark for your work.  I have looked at more than one LSW forum and I always look to see if you have put up any new MOC's.  You should see if Lego is hiring designers because they could do far worse than to give you a job.  Ok I have to stop with the complements cause everyone might think I have a man-crush on you!  Please keep a sub par MOCer's hopes up to get better!

Thanks I did try out for the Legoland CA spot back 2006 when they took the top 3 builders from 7 US cities. Sadly I had just come out of my dark ages and had no idea how good the other contests were. I had spent the previous 2 weeks in Japan returned on Thursday and drove down to NYC on Friday morning. No chance of practing my MOC and slighty jet lagged. I did make top 7 for NYC but did not make top 3. Fortunately though I'm kind of glad I didn't make it because the starting pay back then was a mere 30,000 and living in SoCal. Although the location would be nice cost of living down where wouldn't be worth it for only 30,000. I haven't made less the 30,000 since 2001 when I was a student.  :tongue:

That being said I would love it if TLG gave me a call some day and asked me to design for them.  There are a lot better designers out there then me, but what I focus on, that makes me different than most of them, is playability.  :thumbup:

I %100 agree with you sir.  Playability is an absolute must IMO.  Having a ship or set is great, but to see the innerworkings and the whys that make a ship or set work is part of the enjoyment that is Lego.  Also having things be almost or completely minifig scale is of the utmost importance.  I believe George Lucas himself wanted people to see the small little parts and pieces that made up his galaxy (the Death Star comes to mind).  You do great work and I am happy to say that I am part of a forum you and the other great builders on this site are in.  Keep up the fantastic MOCing!

So it has suspension too? :oh: You truly are into play features! :tongue: It's been said before, and I'll say it again: Great job! You should totally get in touch with TLC!

Nice, solid looking tank Rook. Reminds me somewhat of the Mammoth tank from Command & Conquer mixed with the single barreled Siege Tank from Starcraft. The play features are great: you got suspension in there which is very, very cool and who doesn't like a cannon that 'fires' light?

Great work, cheers for sharing it with us. Best of luck in the contest!
