This mech model is heavily inspired by the anatomy of a tarantula. I believe this would make an excellent playable and displayable set (two things that are vital to a great LEGO set). Playability includes spinning pods that actually turn into baby spider minions; high poseability with all eight legs; six-stud shooters; easily accessible cockpit and rear passenger seat (and much more to come in future updates!). Hopefully this model speaks for itself as a displayable piece; one way I imagine is crawling on top of several modular buildings, which presents an excellent play possibility: Attack of the Spider Mech!
