Team 3 | Fall 2011

This hand held action figure is the leader of the Animechs: a group of mechanized animals created to defend us from evil. Â He looks like a snapping turtle at first glance, but when fighting he opens his mouth and a cannon comes out. Â This action is a result of the user pushing down on his shell and causing his legs to retract. Along with gear action inside the shell, a cannon protrudes from his mouth as it slides past the top of the head. Â To release the projectile, one simply pushes on the turtle’s head with the cannon extended.
