5154 Darksters Truck
« on: October 25, 2011, 14:49:35 »
The truck is quite solid after assembly as well.

The cockpit is the same color as the glider one (shaded transparent). The two figures sit next to each other.

The container can be put to the ground (or loaded into the Darksters Base).

The container is locked while driving and will open to reveal a crystal+battery-powered "K.O."-gun that works with inrfa-red light.

The gun can be mounted on top of the battery box OR it can be attached next to the box so the container can still be closed.

The co-pilot looks quite well-armoured  with the breast plate and shoulder protection.

Oops, sorry  :-\ , just deleted the pic of the female pilot (a real cutie). I'll post another one soon.

All tools/weapons in this set can be connected with the red and black "tubes" that come with every new space set. If you look you can see the places where the rubber tubes will fit. This is a nice variant and the tools look much more "efficient" if you do so.  :yup:

The "linking device" to attach another vehicle to this truck (the red one in the last picture) can swivel in its place so you can "make it disappear" under the truck or "make it ready" to hook up some kind of "trailer". Hmm, but there IS no trailer in this series?? Maybe a DS-set next May. That would be great  :yippee:

How does the container on the truck become level when in transport mode? It looks like the bed of the truck is slanted and there is some kind of mechanism in the middle.
If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

Yes, there is a joint that will tilt and there's the sliding element. The container "locks" onto the vehicle when it is slowly pressed towards the front. The you can lock it using the red "turning knob" to keep it from opening while driving as well.

Here's the more detailed process of loading the container onto the truck.

And here's the lady - fully armed or "tooled" ;D

That's about it for this vehicle.
