I was thinking about what I could do with the newly acquired bucket wheel excavator parts. Something that I couldn't build without these big yellow circles. That's how this strange idea came to be.

The arms are motorized: they grab or drill and retract into the wheels. The compact and functional hand is my favourite part of the robot

The two-wheel design makes it wobble a lot. Someone on youtube commented that it's headbanging to the music - genius!!! 

I might try making one with adjustable wheel angles next! Any suggestions?

Check it out on LEGO Ideas!!!

Hehe, a really nice build :grin: Like others here, my first thought was the hailfire droid. Escpecially like the gripper arm coming out, and also the way you use the clamshell buckets as fairings around the BB :thumbup:

Thanks guys! I agree about the gripper arm. It hasn't fallen apart yet but I'll look into it because I want to use the same idea for another MOC :wub:
