Before the transforming Spider Mechs I designed this version.
About this creation
The original concept behind this design was actually to make a piloted spider vehicle for use as part of the Space Skulls line of Lego figures. However I realised fairly quickly that the practicalities of adding a working cockpit were beyond my construction skills at the time.
I just love the "skeletal" appearance of the finished design, particularly the hind section which I turned into a power core/engine. I had intended to add a rear facing cannon to represent the "spinnerets" of a true spider but didn't like how this affected the overall shape.
I've placed this with my Microscale vehicles simply because I feel in terms of scale it fits there better than the spiderbot gallery. This way I can picture that the head is actually a manned cockpit rather than the results begin just a robot.

This is probably the best Lego Spider I've ever seen. So detailed and complex :D I've built a big spider myself for my Lord of the Rings MOC but yours is so much more detailed! Great job!!
