A typical mining loader in Power Miners colour scheme. No rock monsters, no dynamite, just a boring vehicle ;)
About this creation
When the first pics of the PM sets appeared on the net, I was sure that I will never buy a PM set, because I dislike a lime colour. A bit later Misterzumbi showed his Power Miners themed models. He also wrote something about AFOL's and Power miners in his letter. Then I've started to like lime colour... Few days ago I've bought a 8959 Claw Digger. And I must say that it's very funny :) Some AFOL's who I know said that Power Miners isn't succesfull theme. Too unrealistic. Too childish. Well, It's a good thing that PM vehicles are unrealistic, because real mining machines are... boring. As you can see above, I've built an underground mining loader in Power Miners colours, which shape is based on the real machines. And... it's booooring, because it doesn't have claws, or saws. It even doesn't have oversized drill ;)
Play gets you ready for work and work can be fun. In the real world alot of people would die to work on one of these things 4O hours a week, I would. As for our PM set, we could use one of these to keep the process running smoothly.
