Awesome job, man!! Technodrome looks fantastic. Love how you managed to get 2 connection bridges for the inside. :tgrin:

Mine's 99% complete, just need to get the brain scrambler and replace the black spiked door (mine won't stay shut).

Previous owner really did whatever they wanted with the stickers! Love the extra firing platform, even if they are completely unusable by anyone. When I put my drome together I was convinced it came with two and that I'd lost one; almost bought a second one before figuring it out.

I'd also like to point out that in the action shot, the good guys are about to kick some serious shell.

1 - Who put Rahzar in charge of a turret? He's more likely to hurt himself than anything else.

2 - Splinter still has his cane, rookie mistake by Tokka.

3 - Mike almost has is nunchuck out, he's going to use that brain scrambler to his advantage and take out some heads on the way around. He's immune: he barely has a brain to scramble anyway.

4 - Leo is showing up on all of the monitors. I think he has them right where he wants them. He's just settings up a distraction for.....

5 - Donatello's sweet surprise attack. Can't tell me the other three went without him, I'd keep my eye on sky for a blimp right about now if I was Shredhead.

6 - April is a sweet talker and Slash is an idiot. He'll be wearing the mutant manacles before that exchange is done.
