Bathysphere time? Another VSF goodie …

I’m not sure what this VSF machine from the Japanese anime movie Steamboy is. It was amongst the goodies in my previously mentioned parcel of Bandai VSF toys from Japan.

I suspect it is some sort of bathysphere designed to plunge the ocean deeps. But despite diligent searching in Google Images, I haven’t located a Steamboy still that shows this machine in action, to be certain of its purpose.  The nearest I’ve found is this:

Anyway, a bathysphere won’t be much use in a VSF wargame.  So I’m thinking  I might make it into some sort of flying machine by adding a large rotor on top,  or suspending it from a balloon.  Then it can rain destruction on my enemies.

Anyway got any other ideas for it?

Keep watching … more VSF goodies yet to come!

  1. Steam powered A-bomb?

    Really fat robot?

    Giant evil mega-destructive Christmas tree decoration?

    Might you turn it onto its side and create some sort of weapon from it? Hard to tell from the photo. Other than that, some sort of flying thing makes sense to me.

    PS, ooooh, rivets . . . quick, count them!

  3. I guess you could keep it as is, there’s always a chance our VSF gaming could at some point plunge beneath the waves… Or perhaps turn it on its side and convert it into some kind of Aeronef…

  4. Some with the designers have made structures which may be just like the Great
    Sphinx of Egypt as well as the Eiffel Tower from France.
    If you need to explore the location life or just have to
    avoid hopping on the casinos nightly of your respective stay; the golf clubs can
    be the top location for you together with your partner.

    Some with the popular shows in Las Vegas are Cirque du Soleil, the Beatle – Show, the initial Blue Man Group, David Copperfield, sweet Donny and Marie, and truly original Celine Dion.
