|Retooled version of my [link] Space Ninja Fleet Construction Team to make them backwards compatible with my previous [link] Space Ninja Fleet Gold so that I can create an Ultra Mode. |
[link] Space Ninja Fleet Loco may be next....
Legs: Backhoe, Bulldozer
Arms: Crane, Claw
A few differences from the previous version, mostly cosmetic in terms of the team leader, but the other four are all new builds. I basically took the limbs of the original space ninja fleet and redesigned them to still do what the originals could, but look more "space construction fleet" like.
- it is compatible with the Gold Fleet giving an Ultra Form this time. Goes pretty well with the gold and yellow combination I feel.
- as the limb are basically the original designs retooled it no longer has any problems switching out the new limbs for those of the other Fleet Super Robots. This means that I could swap out either leg for a leg from the Stealth or Ninja fleets and it would balance.
- well the range of vehicle combinations is less diverse, I couldn't figure out how to make one look like a cement mixer, dump truck or wrecking ball, perhaps something to work on for the 2014 version.
The colours are still very Constructicon-esque and that too was quite deliberate.
Anyone aware of the other incarnations of this series will know I'm well aware of the super sentai / power rangers likeness and yes that too was deliberate.
As always comments and ratings welcome, spam not.
