i just wondered if it would be possible to add
wheels to that big monster i thought about it myself the tires would have to be huge just to
carry that thing around would this machine be used in outer space on other planets if so then wheels would be the answer and where would you put cargo?

^^ spiderman`s let himself go
*tries to swing on a web*
*web snaps*
*plummets to death*
anyway, give it some webbing or guns/lasers/cannons and rotating leg THEN it wouldn`t be worthless

what an idiot, the idea of making a vehicle with legs is about adding flexibility in its movement, that thing can only go straight on a flat road

What happens when it wants to do sideways? Oh hang on it is going sideways...what happens when it wants to go forwards? A few hundreds miles to turn a corner.:-D

it`s more of a crab than it is a spider because it looks as if it is going sideways

It only moves in one direction. I want one that can scurry around all over the place reeking havoc and destruction throughout all the land.
(please no arab stereotype jokes. I just want to make a simple/bad joke)

Probably was designed to use only a minimal amount of energy to propel, not necessarily designed for speed (as you can tell). Personally, I wouldn`t pay a penny for a robot that doesn`t have working lasers.

It doesn`t have much mobility... But it does look awesome. The mechanics probably wouldn`t be that difficult to replicate.

It has potential but it`s not very impressive because it doesn`t do very much.
