Default Metal Land Raiders

I saw my friend's stash of Smurf stuff... he's going to field some, proxy others...

But he has a metal Land Raider. Is that anything special?

Metal? I don't think the Land Raider has ever been metal... 1st Edition was plastic, 2nd Edition never came out in 40K scale (Epic only), and 3rd Edition (the existing one) is plastic.

Are you sure you don't mean Land Speeder?

I mean a tank with two TL Lascannons, 14 armor all around, and troop carrier capabilities.

At least it seems wierd to you too...

Did he cast the model himself?

Hmmm, might it be a resin Landraider? Some old forgotten Armorcast/Forge-world thing?

Crusader LRs have a ridiculous amount of metal...but they don't have the las cannons. Quite the mystery.

maybe he hid a lead ingot inside? Are you comparing the weight to other landraiders? If you've never picked one up before, you'd be surprised, the plastic ones aren't very light...

Hm. He seems to have bought it (Not a LR kit) from some store in Kentucky or something.

I think its: A crusader modded to have godhammer cannons

The model has some plastic in the middle, not turret.

I'm not saying weight, I'm saying that parts are cold, hard metal. It is pretty heavy... I'm gonna have a look at a crusader.

[edit] Comparing it to pictures on the 'net... its got a turret.

Then it isn't a Land Raider. Odds are, it's a Predator.
