Overmind5000 - Unearthly Volcano Excavator - 3d Vehicle

Idea behind this concept:

This is a special type of excavator designed to harvest minerals off of steep slopes and heated environments, such as volcanoes, impact craters, and deep-ocean trenches. I intend to base this model on sci-fi excavators about the internet, an old transformers figure I found in my closet, and a lobster. Here is my rough sketch so far (and it's REALLY rough):

And here's my deviated blockout, which I may paint over later:



I welcome criticism, since this is my first time participating in a GameArtisans challenge of any kind.

Added what could be a multi-purpose turbine/rotor/impeller thingy. Could be used to propel itself through lava or deliver jet-powered punches:



And another angle with wires:

Update! Got details down on the claws and cab, and also threw in some simple materials to make details stand out a little:

Looks beast! I love all the small details you added. Those tracks are really nice too. I don't know if you're going to keep it, but the colour scheme is awesome!

I got no crits really, it looks like it going very well. Looking forward to see the rest.

I had some work done on the tail. An idea came to mind that the tail could serve as a barbed anchor, and the fins on the side double as the barbs.

EDIT: Whoops, forgot the picture. -_-'
