MTU 001 Tarantula

Discussion in 'Renders and Illustrations' started by ARMORMAN, Sep 7, 2013.



    A while back I did this concept illo to try to sell a toy company on a design idea for their RC spider mecha battle toys. I called it the Tarantula and based it on military designs (ablative plating, gear racks, etc.) the panels on the legs were supposed to "explode" when hit with a dart or other object. They rejected the design (didn't even respond, actually) and went with "Combat Creatures." You can google it for the production model. Anyway, here's my concept art...all Photoshop.

    This looks like it would make for a GREAT paper model.
    Are you looking at the possibilities of making it into one?

    Yes, that would be awesome. It could fit in the Star Wars universe as well as Ma.K., Macross and so on.
