Woohoo! Vindicated! My hours of toil have not been in vain! Sweet, sweet recognition!

Of course she's dead right - It is cute, but things also get a little gory as it has a tendancy to rip itself apart from time to time. A bit less gearing next time, methinks...

For a second, I thought you meant the dance.

The only one I specifically remember building was a version of the evil Boombox, which was particularly cool because you could get the transforming cassette tapes too - the CD era has put the boot in there I guess. My lego version was format compatible, much to my pride, but it too wasn't the most robust robot killing machine in the world.

There should be a picture somewhere - that little guy was hanging around in our living room for ages. Neverthless, looking through my hard drive (which is, appropriately enough, shaped similarly to a lego brick) I can't find anything.

...Did you shoot any, Digger?

You're welcome. The best use that track has ever been put to. Groovy machine.

Nope, no pictures of the duck. he was such a cheery chappy, and he had novelty flappy feet, which made exactly the right sound.
