The Super Tank was an experimental tank that was created for use in the Separatist Army during the Clone Wars. The Separatist leaders hoped that this new armoured vehicle would turn the tide of the Clone Wars to their side. The Separatist engineers who designed the Super Tank chose the new weapons factory on Geonosis to produce the Super Tank. However, the Republic learned of the weapons factory on Geonosis and sent the Republic Army to stop the production of more Separatist weaponry. During the battle over the factory the Separatists attempted to use the Super Tanks to defend the factory, but the tanks failed to prevent the factory's destruction--resulting in the end of Super Tank production.
Lego Super Tank Set Statistics:
Price: $150-200 US
Minifigures: Six minifigures will come with this set: Commander Jet, 2 Camoflage ARF Troopers, a Flame Squad Trooper, and 2 Battle Droid Commanders.
The Battle Droid Commanders will look like the one that came in the Malevolence set.
-The first feature is a retractable hull plate that moves back and forth to reveal or conceal the warhead launchers. Because of LDD problems I cannot show the plate in closed position. The plate can move I just can't show its different positions. The hull plate is opened in the main picture above. After I built the Super Tank I realized the hull plate is "back heavy", meaning that it is hard to keep the plate closed when you are playing with the tank. I put two Technic pins into the bottom of the hull piece so you can push the pins in to keep the plate locked into closed mode. You can pull the pins out again to open the hull plate.
-The next feature is the cockpit. A plate that forms the "roof" of the cockpit can open so the inside of the cockpit is visible and you can place the Battle Droid Commanders in their seats.
On the armoured plate that forms the front of the cockpit, there is a circular opening hatch that a Battle Droid Commander can fit through or peer out of the tank. The cockpit features two seats, controls for operating the tank, and storage for a power-cell, macro-binoculars, and two blasters.
The two hatches that I talked about above are pictured open below.

-Lastly, there is a handle to lift and move the tank easily.
I am currently working on another project for Cuusoo that I hope to finish in the late fall.
If you have any suggestions, questions, and "constructive" criticism, please leave a comment!
Although another Super Tank project exists on Cuusoo, careful comparison will show that there are few similarities between the tanks.
Please support and share this exciting project with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, and one day the Super Tank may blast its way into your Lego collection!
