Mecha Zone: Crab Tank by Mecha-Zone Mecha Zone: Crab Tank by Mecha-Zone
This is an old design from 1999. The drawing is really crappy and rough but I think the design is pretty cool. I called it a crab tank but a lot of other similar designs use the term Spider tank. Talon Games bought the rights to this mech so they could use it in their game. I had my fingers crossed for a miniature, but I don't think anything ever happened with it :(

I should re-design this mech!

I'll be postign some detail sketches for this mech momentarily...

I used to have a series of mech designs similar to this one. I always liked the practicality in a spider of crab-like design.

hi i'm making a trading card game and i was wondering if i could use this drawing for a card i will give credit where it is deserved and plus its a easy way to spread your art plus you can still use them for your project the card game is called Paragon Galaxy the concept is a galaxy built where all these worlds exist for the perfect galaxy . The galaxy will grow and grow until this perfection is formed

Like I said earlier thinking the Powered Suit would be the most likely mecha we would see, I also liked how practical the spider tanks were in Ghost In The Shell. This thing looks like a whole other beast though.
