Blighter Quad Stug Medium Tank - WIP

Last night I did some sketching and 3d modeling of a vehicle that had been rolling around in my head for a long time. I'm a huge fan of the walking tanks from ghost in the shell and other anime so I decided to make a blighter tank in a similar style. I had planned to do a light tank but I feel like this tank is just too cool and that's what it's all about right :) This is still a work in progress but I like the feel of the massing and layout. I can't wait to hold this in my hands. This is a toy that I've ALWAYS wanted. Let me know what you think.


  1. Looking good. I totally agree that this would be a fun toy! (And I had been wondering if you were a fan of GITS.)

  2. Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex is probably one of my favorite anime series. Masamune is a rare combination of great artist/writer with amazing design sense. A BIG inspiration for this design was the crab tank from SAC episode 2. They actually made a toy of the SAC design but I missed out on it and haven't been able to track it down. I do have a black arm suit toy though :)
