Blacktron Prowler (70723 reskin)
Nothing too original here. I saw the 70723 Ninjago Thunder Raider at the store, noticed the detachable robot and the (relatively) cheap price, and thought, "yeah, I can Blacktron that." Not overly exciting or creative, but it's a decent addition to my slowly growing Blacktron fleet.
About this creation
The Prowler was developed for situations that require a fast, land-based vechicle, one that excels at have a small detachable Mech on the back end. And then the Blacktron stole it from whoever built it.

The Prowler is modestly armed with a pair of turbolasers, a pair of pulse cannons, and, for melee, two pairs of bladed weapons. All of my most experienced Blacktron raiders appreciate the utility of primitive weapons: swords, axes, knives...one even fights with a shovel (not pictured, but I can assure you he does exist)

The Prowler excels in nearly all terrestrial terrain types, and the drivers often take it out to the sand dunes to screw around...er...practice maneuvers. These "maneuvers" often make the Mech driver in back feel a bit queasy.

No, those things in the back aren't exhaust vents, they're big, stinky robot feet.

The Scarecrow-class mech, detachable from the main vehicle, is not much help if you need something heavy moved...this guy's designed strictly for blasting things and occasionally stabbing them. It also takes the Prowler's entire compliment of lasers with it when it detaches. You can be sure that whoever designed this thing had no plans to operate it.

Tactically, a Prowler is at it's best when it detaches the mech in a remote location and then intimidates small ground vehicles or troops into an ambush with the waiting Scarecrow.

The Prowler does have a compliment of 6 concussion missiles it can deploy once the Scarecrow is detached. You can be sure that as various Blacktron groups become more familiar with the Prowler, they will customize them with more laser weapons that stay with the main vehicle.

Pretty cool remake. I have a couple things to gripe about, such as the randomly angled plates in the middle of the tank (that might be better redone with sloped elements) and the lack of armor on the mech's legs (but the last one might be due to a lack of parts.)

Awesome vehicle! I love the treads in front and rear wheels. The robot that detaches and coordinates with the other vehicle is brilliant. Excellent work !

Much better looking than the original - everything should come in black and yellow!
