I blogged Izzo’s ninja mecha a few days ago, but he’s continued posting new mecha since then. Here’s the latest, a steampunk mecha titled “Tin Machine,” driven by none other than the Adventurers theme’s archvillain, Sam Sinister:
In addition to his creations inspired by H.P. Lovecraft, Mark Stafford’s Adventurers folder includes several cool vehicles. Here’s a new one, a half-track for Sam “Lord” Sinister:
