War of the Worlds Tripod

Steven Spielberg's 2005 movie "War of the Worlds" contained many different Tripods. I decided to build the "base model" featured in the Main Street attack. This is built to ~around~ Minifig scale - of course the Tripods came in many different sizes. The legs are adjustable but is prone to collapsing under its own weight if it doesn't have a sturdy base, as seen in a later photo (the base has been erased in Photoshop).
